Ryan, Nicely done. You've given me some ideas. I do most of my hiking in the Rockies and Sierras. Usually late August or early September. For my legs, I prefer Patagonia Cool Weather Tights treated with a ReviveX wash-in. Under the tights, I wear a pair of running shorts(sage burners or long haul runners) with the liner removed. I remove the tights when the temps are warm. The CWT are light, about 7.4oz., durable, water resistant, and the large fit baggy on my skinny legs. Just a thought.
