Unisex Merino Thermal Bottoms

Regular price$95.00
🇦🇺 Proudly Australian Made + Ethical Clothing Australia Accredited



Our new Unisex Merino Thermal Bottoms are made from a stretchy Australian merino and elastane blend. Weighing in at 200gsm, these thermal leggings are ideal for most chilly conditions you're likely to be presented with in Australia and New Zealand. 

Ethically made in Australia, our merino thermal bottoms incorporate a beautifully soft Ottie Merino-branded waistband, and a couple of external sewns pockets—so you don't get that annoying pocket bunch-up against your legs—because pants without pockets suck! At 200gsm, we're talkin' a great 'allrounder' thermal bottom. 

Paired with a men's or women's merino thermal top, these merino thermals pants are a must for the well-prepared and cool weather hiker or skier.

Here's some info on ETAs on our pre-order products.

Thermals—These will roll off the production line mid to late June and will start shipping end of June/early July. Just in time for a trip to the ski slopes, or that early spring trip to Tassie or New Zealand.

Short/Long Sleeve Tees—Most of our regular tees are in stock, but you might see that there are a few colours/sizes we're out of. If the 'add to cart' button is telling you the product is on pre-order then expect it to ship in July-ish. Still working through the details on these runs.

Split Orders—If you order in-stock items as well as pre-order items we'll automatically split the order and will ship in multiple parts. That way you can start enjoying your Ottie Merino gear as soon as possible.

Merino Thermals FAQs

In thermals, you need stretch. This is so they sit nice and close to the skin and provide the best insulative qualities. Pure merino is stretchy but not quite enough. Our Australian merino/elastane blend gives you softness, stretchiness, as well as all the benefits of merino.

Why not?

You don't know you're missing a pocket until you need one. You're at Clinton Hut on the Milford Track or at a campsite on the Larapinta Track. Just in your thermal clobber—we hikers/trampers are all about high-fashion, after all—and you've nowhere to pop your headlamp or phone or pack of matches. Nice for warming the hands too.

They may roll off the line as early as mid to end of June. They'll hightail it to our warehouse. Then they'll be out the door. So, best case end of June, worst case first week or so of July. We'll provide regular updates on how they're tracking via email.

Same as with t-shirts. 30 days. No fuss. We're happy to do size and change of mind exchanges or credits or refunds. They just need to come back to us in pristine, resellable condition. Email support@ottie.com.au before returning any items though so we can walk you through the process.

If you place an order now and choose to cancel the order before the thermals arrive that's perfectly fine. A credit or exchange or full refund is available - your choice.

Ah, the logistics of manufacturing clothing.

The charcoal marle these will be produced in are a 'custom colour' with our manufacturer. We sampled in black as we developed the product. So we had to get a bit creative in Photoshop for the initial product photos, just until we get out batch of photography samples and we do a full photoshoot. Hopefully in Kosciuszko National Park which'll be a stunning backdrop!

Around 35gsm in weight for a start. Our lightweight 100% merino tee is 165gsm and our thermals are 200gsm. Perfect for cooler conditions. And, our thermals are a merino/elastane blend, which lends itself a bit better to 'baselayer' wear.
