Anglers might also consider them next to skin beneath waders or 3L rain pants to ward off clamminess. The label says slim fit. Believe it! This piece has been specifically designed as part of a mountain trail running kit that includes form fitting shorts. The assumption is, youll never sit down in the Strider Pros.
