The Bambool BT1 Base Layer Pants are one of the most comfortable base layers I have worn on my lower half. The BT1 pants are made with bamboo, merino wool, and spandex for a comfortable, functional, and solid performing base layer. This has quickly become my favorite base layer pant, and my go-to for any day on the mountain.
Bambool BT1 Base Layer Pants Review
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Fit: The Bambool BT1 Base Layer Pants fit really well. They are slightly roomier than other compression base layers, but I love how comfortable the fit is. The medium fits me just about perfectly, giving me a tight enough fit to be comfortable under my ski pants, and yet loose enough to allow better range of movement. The elastane fabric also makes these pants stretchy, so even if on the tighter side movement doesn’t feel restricted. It’s important to note that Bambool designed these to be ¾ length so you don’t have to tuck them into your ski socks or boots. I thought it was a bit weird at first, but absolutely love the length of these pants.
Features: The main feature is the bamboo, merino, elastane blend. I love how comfortable the feel of this fabric is, and yet at the same time it performs just as well as any other base layer I’ve used. Merino wool helps to insulate when it’s cold outside, while also helping to keep me dry by wicking moisture away from my skin. Elastane is great because it gives the fabric stretch and pliability. I’ve already mentioned the ¾ length as well, but I love this feature of the BT1 pants.
Bottom Line: The Bambool BT1 Base Layer Pants are top-notch. They are probably the most comfortable pant I have worn, while still providing the insulation and moisture management I want in my base layer. I love the ¾ length as it ensures I never have to tuck these into my ski socks or boots. They don’t provide a ton of insulation, but I have no problem wearing these everyday I’m on the mountain. The wicking properties help to keep me dry no matter the weather. I’m not sure if the process to make Bambool is any more environmental friendly than other fabrics, but love the idea of using sustainable materials like bamboo and merino in fabrics. It’s honestly one of the softest fabrics I’ve found in a base layer and great if you value comfort and performance.
