The Faction microfleece pant is a base layer for days that really, really require a base layer. Supersoft and thick, this is a base layer for deep, dark winter. I love how warm and soft it is. I don’t love how a crotch seam ripped within the first few wearings. Well, whatever, they’re still good, it’s only about an inch tear. But still, they didn’t last long before tearing. Perhaps I just got a bum pair. The crotch area is made of a different, and lighter-weight, fabric; so maybe that fabric is the culprit. Or maybe it’s just a good idea to buy these in a size up to prevent excess pressure on that crotch seam. And on that note, it’s probably also a good idea to just sum up by saying these are warm, but they might rip.
