Does anyone now the weight of the following BPL clothing in size XL or L?

Thorofare Trekking Pant
Light Merino UL Shirt (Long-Sleeve)
Merino UL Long John Pant

Any other comments about these items would also be helpful.

Thanks,

Tony

Tony,

The thorofare pants in size large weigh 4.4 oz.
They are very thin but seem to be durable beyond their weight. The light color is semi-transparent when wet, not important to me but may be to some. I didn't get the shirt as I prefer wool only for tops. Check the following reference to a thread that discusses them in detail.

BPL XL Merino Wool long john pant 4.16 oz (118 g)

They are very thin (obviously). I bought mine for more or less summer use in the mountains, but never got to take them on a trip after getting them as the weather got colder and I took my heavier Icebreaker.

They feel great on though.

Tony, in addition to the above, the Thoroughfare clothing is the most mosquito impervious I've ever seen!
