Reviewer Highlight: “Recently bought these for a ski trip, and they were amazing! Warm, comfortable, and were perfect under ski pants.”

Reviewer Highlight: “If I could wear these every day in the winter, I would. I love the insulated lining to stay warm for outdoor runs. If you live in colder climates, these are a must and even work for a base layer!”

Reviewer Highlight: “I’ve had these for almost a year now, and I cannot say enough good things! I live in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and mostly do outdoor activities in them—rock climbing, scrambling over ridges, running trails—these never fail. They’re never too hot; they truly do wick sweat away and never ride down.”

Reviewer Highlight: “I love these. We keep our house super cold, and these leggings are the perfect lazy day loungewear. “

Reviewer Highlight: “I’ve been wearing these around the house, and they feel elevated—a bit more stylish than a regular pair but just as comfortable.”

Reviewer Highlight: “The fit is great—snug and smooth. They’re actually a bit cozy, which is nice for someone who tends to be chilly, even in Texas. I’m looking forward to wearing them and adding them to my walk rotation.”

Reviewer Highlight: “So freaking warm! I recommend these knit joggers to anyone in a cold environment who wants to be comfy.” 

Reviewer Highlight: “So warm for winter in the Rocky Mountains! You can wear them alone for a quick walk with the dog or as an underlayer. I also wore them in California and got caught in a downpour on a hike, they stayed dry! I’m super impressed!”

Reviewer Highlight: “I absolutely love this product, and before anyone thinks this is a fake review, it’s not. I live in New York City, and it gets extremely cold with below-freezing temperatures, but all I have to wear is these leggings under my clothes, and I’m warm all day! I wear these with a T-shirt, and I’m good to go.”

Reviewer Highlight: “These faux leather leggings are divine! They are soft to the touch and very well made; the stretch is really good. Not a hassle to put on. Love, love, love.”

Reviewer Highlight: “I live in Arizona, so the weather is fairly warm all year. These leggings are perfect for our warm winter days as they are not too heavy but also good for air-conditioned workouts during the summer. Quality has been good as these have been washed several times.”

Reviewer Highlight: “These leggings are fabulous! They fit so beautifully and worked beautifully with all my sweaters—no matter the style or color. The quality is what I expect from Commando and makes me look slimmer.”

Reviewer Highlight: “These thermal merino leggings are essential for six months of the year in the Pacific Northwest. I have two pairs, which I wear from November through May. I love their soft feeling, form-fitting, perfect as a first layer around the house and hiking.” 

Reviewer Highlight: “I absolutely love these leggings! I bought a pair last year, and they immediately went out of stock, so when I saw them this year I bought three colors. They are so comfortable and warm, and they fit great!!”

Reviewer Highlight: “These are definitely more like sweater tights than leggings. The waist is very high and tight, which is good to keep them up all day. I will wear them in the winter but not as leggings in the spring.”

Reviewer Highlight: “I never buy leggings because I always have problems with them staying up, but these are great! I love the material, and they stay up with minimal adjustments during my workout.”

Reviewer Highlight: “I love these pants! Great fabric and is very flattering. They are long, so I’ll have to get them shortened, but so excited to wear them!”

Reviewer Highlight: “I love these. I’ve worn them basically every day since getting them with breaks to wash—they’re comfortable and keep me way warmer than regular leggings.”

Reviewer Highlight: “I am 5’4″ and ordered a size XS. These leggings are perfect for a durable and essential piece to add to your wardrobe. They are not too restricting and have a luxurious feel.”

Reviewer Highlight: “I absolutely adore these leggings! They’re so comfortable, and they keep your legs warm, but they also look so flattering and let your skin breathe with the fleece lining. I definitely plan on buying another pair!”

Reviewer Highlight: “Best joggers! You can dress them up or wear them casually. I’m considering buying a second pair.”

Reviewer Highlight: “Buy these leggings! They’re so buttery-soft, stretchy, and they hold you in perfectly.”

Reviewer Highlight: “Amazing fit. Slimming and high waist. I have a mom tummy and weird thighs (apparently), so finding pants that are both comfy and look great is really hard to find.”

Reviewer Highlight: “Absolutely a must for the winter; I buy a pair or two every year. They’re very soft, warm, and comfy. I wear it alone or under my pants, and they keep me toasty but not sweaty all day in the snow.”

Reviewer Highlight: “Looks good, stretchy, comfortable, and decently warm.”
