    Default Wool pants

    Went to a few stores in town and couldn't find much for thick wool pants. Does any one know where they are hiding at? Want to get a pair for underneath the snowmachine bibs

    If you can find the Codet pants made in Canada they are heavy weight and good quality and should be under 100 bucks(maybe 80ish on sale). I like them better than Filson or Woolrich which are more than double the price.

    I quit wearing bibs most the time. Too heavy and hard to move in. Wool is great, just not my thing. I overheat fast even in extreme cold and I hate sweating under heavy gear. I just started using a good quality base layer, then a pair medium weight rei fleece pants, secured/ bottoms tucked in by heavy duty knee high socks then I put my boots on and wear a pair of water/ wind proof rei shell pants. Pretty much duplicate the same up top. I Can ride all day in -20 temps and stay warm, comfortable and dry. I use rei becuz it's really much cheaper than other top selling brands and from what I can see and as hard as I use it, it holds up **** good. Just giving up suggestions. Hope you find what you want!

    Thanks for that site, Mtntrekker. Real wool garments made in USA for cheaper than a used Filson on e-bay. Awesome!

    Don't really know why you'd wear bibs over heavy wool pants. Anyhow, I've been running ll bean wool for a few years now. Their guide wool pants have a wind shield type material. They are uninsulated so you can layer, but the wind breaker is a must for machining. Lately, I've been wearing them with no underwear! Too warm round here, especially running the dog sled. the jacket has a touch of primaloft insulation. both are very heavy material, should last 15 years or more:

    Just bought some East German Commie pants from Coleman's and they only have a few left and only in XL if anyone is interested. Their web site is not working so give them a call at 888-478-7758.

    Just wondering how you guys felt they fit your size?

    I used to buy surplus wool pants at Army/Navy but that was year's ago. The coleman's site indicates they have other sizes. How do they fit length wise? A 36 lenght would be great, if not high waters would work too.

    Mine haven't arrived yet. The woman I talked to when I ordered told me they only have XL and they are running low...all I can say about that.

    If these are reasonable quality I'm happy having them taken in to fit my currently shrinking waist...never know when it will grow again. Length is another issue but I'd rather have them up out of the mud.

    Mine just arrived...nice looking dress pants and are pretty much a 40 waist and 30 length and may be a little itchy if you are bothered by wool on bare skin. They are big enough for me to wear silk or smartwool under them and still feel "crowded" in them. For the money...great wool pants.
