Zip off Base Layer Bottoms? (like Kuiu)

I really like the concept of the Kuiu zip off merino wool bottoms. Nice to be able to put on and take off long john bottoms without having to take off your boots.


Sadly, I can not fit into the Kuiu bottoms. XL (their largest size) fits in the waist, but doesn't even begin to fit in my thighs and calves.

Does any other company make a similar product? I've seen a lot of long john bottoms, but never seen a zip-on one like Kuiu.

I love the zip-off feature and I'm amazed that other companies haven't come out with something similar. Another option if you don't have a pair is to get the Kenai Insulated Pants which are in the outlet now for $100 instead of $150. They have the same zip-off functionality along with being 3/4 like the merino zipp-offs. They also have Xl and XXL, but the fit is not near as tight as the Merino base layer so you may not need to size up.

I ordered the XXL size Peloton 200 tights.

They work well. Much more room in the thighs and calves than the merino in XL.

Happy now.
