Customer Reviews

Comments: I went out for a run in 10 deg.F with these Gore pants. Is was a little chilly to start but became comfortable after a few minutes. By the end of the run they impressed me very much. The fit is perfect, not too tight and not too loose. No need to wear long underwear but I had compression shorts on underneath.
