Questions & Answers for MEC T2 Zip-Crotch Long Johns

Question

Are there outer layer pants available that have a compatible zipper?

I see that MEC has base and mid-layer women's pants with the zip-crotch feature. But I cannot find outer layer pants anywhere with a matching zipper. Do you have any available or plan to develop any in the near future?

As of present, there's no info regarding MEC carrying more shell pants with a zip through crotch in the future. The Synergy are a really great pant though, worth checking out!

The MEC Synergy Bib Pants are a waterproof/Breathable outer shell pant that have a through-the-crotch zip. I've put my feelers out there to get some info as to any future products we'll carry with the zipper-crotch feature and I'll post the answer here when I recieve it. Hope that helps!

Question

would you wear these under the slim fitting pants for cross-country skiing? Ex. Slipstream 4?

They would fit under the slipstream but I would have two questions or concerns:
1. Why buy a zip crotch underwear when the pants do not have a matching zipper - just get the regular long underwear
2. I would be too warm in this underwear plus the slipstream unless you are expecting very cold conditions or are not skiing hard.

Maybe look at layering a midweight long underwear under a softshell.

Question

How comfortable are these to wear?

Just curious, how comfortable are these? Does the zipper feel uncomfortable at all and/or dig in?

Well, as long as you are not riding a bike in them, you won't even notice it is there...only thing is that it stiffens the seam somewhat but no more than jeans do.

What is the purpose of the crotch zipper in the women's long johns?

So that you can go to the bathroom without taking off your pants. This is useful when you're wearing a harness, or with bib pants, or even if it's really cold out and you don't want to expose more than you have to.
