    Runs REALLY small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    The quality seems great and I will update this review when I actually get to try them for backpacking in the right size.

    My warning is that they don't just run a little small, they run REALLY small. I am 5'5" and 110# so pretty slender and petite. I usually wear a Size 5 (small) in Hanes Comfort Soft bikini underwear for every day. I sized up to a medium for these per recommendations and STILL too small for me. They are at least 2" shorter around the waistband than the Hanes. I can't believe I have to order a large in these bikini panties. That is definitely ridiculous sizing. I would say the medium is more like a standard x-small.

    Underwear nirvana...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: medium

    I own these in the medium and large in sand, black and pink. Ordered sea glass to mix it up a bit. Great for everyday use as well as hiking/backpacking. Fits perfectly with no panty lines, UNBELIEVABLY breathable, no odors (unlike synthetics, which stink, even the "travel" ones hold an odor.) They've lasted well over a year of hard use with machine washing in a laundry bag and drip drying, which takes minutes in a dry climate.

    Fit like a glove, although they do run on the small side. The only caveat (and it's a very minor one) is that they don't stick very well to pads, but they are so well cut it's not a huge issue.

    I am hoarding these in fear they will stop making them. I can't go back. Worth every penny.

    • Size Bought: small

    My mom says these are the best active briefs on the market. They stay put, can be worn for multiple days backpacking, dry fast, are odorless and comfortable. Definitely worth the money.

    Finally underwear that stays put!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    I bought these after frustration with both Smartwool and Icebreaker underwear riding up while hiking. Hiked in these on 12+ hour hiking days and they stayed where they should. The wool ventilation was great in the Costa Rican heat. I'd like to buy more, but the XL size is hard to find.

    Awesome!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I've had these for five months now, and they still seem brand new. Super comfortable and they stay in place. More substantial material and coverage than Icebreaker or Smartwool. I'm buying more. I'm between sizes on the hip measurement, and sized up, perfect fit.
