Can anyone recommend a bottom mid-layer made out of wool, preferably marino?
I'm trying to get a way from fleece and more into natural fibers that breathe and don't smell. Shirts I've had no problem finding but bottoms tend to be either like long-johns (skin-tight, double-flap fly) or like hunting pants (pockets, belt-loops, bulky). I want something that I can wear over a lightly poly base layer and under shell pants.
Also, I usually drive up to the mountain in my mid-layer (fleece now) and don't put the shell pants on til I start skiing. So they need to look like warm-up pants. I'd prefer something that is close fitting but not tight like a base layer and with a drawstring waist but elastic might be okay.
