Burton understands that the warmer you are, the longer you can ride.
Shield yourself against the cold when you pull on the Burton Women’s Midweight Pant. This Burton base layer wicks away moisture while keeping you warm. Designed with riding in mind, the Burton Midweight Pant has a shorter inseam to keep it from bunching up in your boots while its softlock seams prevent chaffing. And if you’re so excited to ride you just have to sleep in these bottoms the night before, feel free—the Burton Midweight Pant has an antimicrobial finish for just such an occasion. - Fall 2008.

Love, love , love these Burton long undies. I live in AK, so in the winter I like to wear long underwear with my jeans. Normally, this means if my shirt rides up at all, it appears I have major grannie panties on - however Burton has a low rise and these things keep you toasty and dry on or off the mountain.
Also, polka squares are quite fun.
Room for Socks!
These have plenty of room for socks...I ordered smalls and am 5 ft 7 in and they fit perfectly. The waistband is a bit loser than I'd like so shirts dont stay tucked in...but such is life. Also, if you don't want them to get little lint balls, hang dry them! Otherwise, these are a great and affordable base layer, and I definitely would recommend them.
I usually wear a size 4-6 in jeans from American Eagle. I ordered these pants in a size small. They are definitely snug, but in my opinion that is how a base layer should fit. They go down to right above the ankle and are designed to go inside your boot when you wear them, so if you don't like that, I would recommend going with the "shant" version of these because those will not go into your boot. The only thing is that I wish they went up a little higher on the waist...as I like to tuck whatever top baselayer I'm wearing into the bottoms. Other than that, no complaints and I would buy them again.
Cuff seams do not stretch!
If you are like me and you pull your long underwear up onto your calf so that it doesn't ball up in your boot then these are not for you. I do not have fat calves, but the seams on the cuffs of these long underwear do not stretch at all, and they were pinching my calf all day long... Not comfortable at all. Also they are more of a lightweight layer - these are the thinnest long underwear I own. All 3 pairs of my 686 long underwear are much warmer.
