Smarty(under)pants for skiing, hiking, backpacking, or wherever your travels take you.
You may think, 'Wool underwear? Um, not a fan of underwear that feels like sandpaper.' Fortunately, the Arc'teryx Women's Eon SLW Boxer feels nothing like sandpaper; in fact, it feels silky, smooth, and quite awesome on your touring-toned bum. Merino is a super-smart choice for active underwear: it dries quickly, stretches, allows perspiration to evaporate right through, and insulates even when snow-sogged. (Evil boyfriend who pushed you into the powder as you adjusted your binding? He will pay. Dearly.) Anatomical shaping and flatlocked seams boost the comfy factor.
i was skeptical at first when i saw the waistband - it's sewn on top and not integrated into the shorts like the ortovox version. BUT - these shorts are so comfortable! The legs are slighlty longer than the ortovox ones, and don't even threaten to roll up my thighs!! Am so happy to have found these - will buy a few more pairs for sure. They even feel great under jeans.
