Merino wool long johns for merino wool warmth
By Catalogs Editorial Staff
Merino wool long johns and wool long janes keep you warm down underWhen I hear the phrase Long Johns, the first thing that comes to mind is Long John Silver – the pirate with the wooden leg in the Robert Louis Stevenson classic Treasure Island. Yes, I ponder up images of Long John (Arg) and the fast food fish chain that ultimately became his legacy. I don?t really think about underwear, and am still unsure as to how we arrived at the name. I certainly get the long part, but what?s the John all about?
I have a skiing trip lined up for next month, so I need some warm and wooly underthings to keep my limbs from becoming a pair of icicles while I?m swishing and swooshing outdoors in 20 below weather. No average male Long Johns will do. I need them to be tailored to my physique, hug me where I need to be hugged and not have that weird little crotch flap thingy. These Merino Wool Long Johns, or (Long Janes as I like to call them) from Ibex Outdoor Clothing will do the trick, keeping me at a comfortable temperature and totally dry so I don?t shiver me timbers out on the slopes.
