I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.-henry David Thoreau

I frequently wear a pair of First Lite's Allegheny 230g Merino Bottoms. It's been down to 20 degrees and windy here when I've worn them and they do great under a pair of jeans. Before getting them I was always shivering a bit hahaha.
