Bass Pro Shops Midweight Performance Thermal Crew Pants for Men
Well - I hate the Hanes stuff that makes you feel like Peter Pan in tights...these are much more comfortable. Wore them in Fairbanks earlier this month (Dec12); -31F. Still have all my favorite parts so they must have worked. Not as warm as, say, Army-issue heavy-weight Polartec brownies, but good enough to keep your parts intact and allow you to go indoors without sweating. Think they'd work even better in less absurd conditions.

There are many similar products out there that cost a lot more, I tried some other more expensive ones that cost twice as much and I can't tell the difference. You could get some for 3-4 times the price, but I don't believe in magic. These work pretty good, I wear them to work every day, where the temperature ranges from -37 to +45C and they help me a lot, when you come out of the hot area they dry out in no time and in the cold they make a huge difference in keeping me warm.

Good, Not Great
Better than no base layer, but not great. They are comfortable, and the fit is good. For the price and for a midweight they are just average. With layers including base, pants, and outer, they are good. With just the thermal and pants they don't perform well compared to others. < 15 deg better find something else.
