Ridge Merino Men’s Aspect Midweight 3/4 Bottoms

With these 3/4-length Ridge Merino bottoms, you’ll stay warm on the slopes without all the unnecessary fabric bunching in your boots.


Even though these Ridge Merino bottoms are 3/4 length (sits about mid-calf), they offer complete protection. This makes them perfect as a base layer under your snow pants, running shorts, or any other outer layer.

Note: Best paired with long socks for winter activities.

The 180 GSM fabric hits the outdoor-comfort sweet spot: thin enough so water can freely move away from your skin and thick enough to provide all-day warmth. The addition of flatlock seams, snug waistband, and functional fly make these leggings extremely versatile.

On top of that, the wool is blended with Ridge Merino’s trademarked (m)Force technology to improve durability and longevity. All in all, if you want a pair of leggings to pair with your winter socks, then check out the Ridge Merino Aspect Midweight 3/4-Length bottoms.
