I have yet to wear them in the field but they fit great, are comfortable and made really well. They are a little long for me but that's not an issue. I usually wear a 35-36 waist at a 30" length. These are 36/32.

Extremely handy to remove a layer in the field without removing your boots and truly do keep you warm even when wet.
The ability to remove this baselayer is a game changer, especially in the early season when temperatures can fluctuate widely. These were a bit large on me and had the tendency to bunch, but not enough to cause major irritation. If you need to gain elevation during your hunt, or if you're dragging a deer out and need to drop a layer, the zips make shedding the extra layer a 1-2 minute deal instead of a lengthy process. You don't need the zips or plan on stand hunting when the temps are below 30, it probably makes more sense to go without the zips.
These are genius. Unless it is extremely cold I never wear long Johns because of hassle of removing them. My hunting buddies have never been so jealous!
Men's Kiln Zip Off Long John
Wore these this year under corrugate pants and did fine below 30°F. They fit somewhere between snug and just barely loose. They aren't so tight or loose that they bother me or get in the way. At a 34 waist I seem to fit in mediums for these and the boxers. I think the most accurate thing I can say about them is that I didn't notice them while I was using them. They didn't pinch or bunch around the waist or legs for me, I really never felt the zipper down the side against my leg, it didn't feel weird to kneel or anything like that. There was a brief period of time that I was hiking in temps above 40°F and in direct sun, in those conditions they were a little too warm for me, but that's why they've got zips.
The zip off long John's are the most comfortable and the warmest base layers I've bought. I wore them next to skin yesterday morning in 28 degree weather. By the time I finished 23 foot up a tree to deer hunt I had worked up a lot of sweat and I thought I would end being cold and shaking like a leaf. However, the merino wool worked like a charm, it wicked the sweat and held the body heat. The leg zippers make easy on and off. These definitely are the best base layers
First off let me say it’s a fantastic product. The zip off feature is a must for long hunts with changing weather and versatility. It’s soft, warm and perfect for early and late season hunts. I don’t feel the zipper in my boot or anywhere on my legs when wearing. I wish I knew why this isn’t made in the USA? Why support China when the prices for first lite apparel can easily justify employing American workers and probably boost their reputation by having American made quality hunting products. Oh well, maybe someday.
This is the best design for a long john I have ever used. Comfortable, light, and easy to take off when the heat rises.
