    Details

    While others may disagree, we believe there's nothing more distracting or inconvenient than enduring the sensation of seriously-bunched-undies while skiing down the most beautifully sculpted chute Mother Nature ever created. Do yourself a favor and put the spunk back in your step (or ski) with the Icebreaker Women's Sprite Hot Pant. Made the way Mother Nature intended things to be, these undies are crafted with an ultralight merino wool combined with a touch of Lycra, these boy-short undies put a sassy spin on your run-of-the-mill hot pant silhouette with its low rise and full coverage. Additionally, merino wool naturally kicks unsavory odors out the door so you won't feel quite as stinky on those weeklong backpacking trips and hut-to-hut ski tours.

    Super Undies!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    These area amazing. I don't normally wear boy shorts, but these provide great coverage and are incredibly comfortable. I have worn them as everyday, as well as on bigger hiking and climbing trips. The move, breathe, and dry really well. If you are still wearing cotton, it's time to make the switch!

    Ordered a 3rd pair!

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

    There are a lot of great products out there, but as far as merino wool undies go, this has been my favorite brand so far! I can't stock up on these in bulk, but I find myself adding a new pair to every order! Love them and have now tried out a few different styles too!

    Perfectly Invisible

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

    These are my favorite! I wear them working out, under jeans, under skirts and dresses. They don't show lines and are so comfortable. I've had a few pairs for about a year, now. No defects or wear, unlike other brands or even the siren. Just wash as delicates and air dry. Please, put them on sale, again!

    Comfortable but didn't last long

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

    I was super happy when these first arrived. They are incredibly comfortable and great for moving around in. Unfortunately, they fell apart almost immediately. The fabric stretched out and tore through. If you do buy them, wash them carefully.

    New everyday underwear

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I like the fit and look of these! They have become my everyday underwear and I have a few that I hand wash and wear all the time (I think these can also go in the washer, but I don't do laundry enough or have enough of these to have tried that yet). The leg holes are sometimes a bit tight when I'm sitting (the stitching around the leg is less stretchy), but I can readjust to make them comfy. They're great for walking, hiking, and so far anything I've done in them. They don't ride up ever!

    SEXY MERINO UNDIES!!

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

    Icebreaker for the win. Cute colors and a fit thats technical but still cute enough for date night. I bought these in an XS and S. I am between sizes. I found the small to be a bit too baggy and would bunch up under clothing but the XS fits snug the waistband only digs in a bit. Overall love having cute technical undies (with minimal stank after 5 days on the river!)

    A must have

    • Size Bought: Small

    I bought these with the intention of just "trying them out", and I fell in love. I would say they are worth the money. Great for camping, snowboarding, snowshoeing, or even summer sports like climbing or hiking. Extremely comfortable but I would say don't get them too big. I wish I purchased an extra small, this is the only note I have for when I buy my next pair.

    Best Fit I've had in years.

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

    Not sure how else to say this- but this is great for full coverage! Was so glad as the leg holes didn't cut me off early as a lot of underwear does. I have a "gymnast" build and these fit great. They are super breathable and usually wear them when snowboarding or hiking. They fit perfectly true to size as I'm a size US 5-7 and ordered a M. I purchased 2 pairs of these right of the bat and will probably order more.

    Gamechanger

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS

    I've long heard about the incredible qualities of merino wool underwear and after having purchased the Ibex Balance Bralette, I was becoming something of a believer-convert myself. So, I decided to take it to the next level with the Sprite Hot Pant and whoa- am I super stoked that I did. I chose an Icebreaker underwear over another Ibex piece strictly so I could compare the performance and fit difference. I love me some Ibex, but have heard a great deal of positive things (like, 4 years worth of positive feedback) about the Sprite Hot Pant, so I figured I couldn't go wrong.

    As far as performance is concerned, I like to conduct what I generically call (and I apologize if this is TMI) The Stink-Gnar-Gnar- Test. After a week's worth of aerobic activities (sans coming in contact with my washing machine, gross I know) ranging from skiing to running / climbing, the Sprite Hot Pant surpassed the TSGGT with flying colors. Not only did the Sprite Hot Pant hold its shape, but it really didn't start feeling potentially gnarly until the last activity-day. The merino wool wicked-away moisture and kept me extremely comfortable throughout my choice in activities. Granted, I have a small derriere, but there no riding up or issue with the style of underwear itself. To say the least, I wish I had listened to my girlfriend's feedback and advice sooner—this underwear is a game changer.

    In regards to the fit, my previous experience with Icebreaker attire was that it ran on the small side, so I was a little apprehensive about which size to choose. After having peeped the sizing chart, I figured for my size and build (Short w/ no hips) that the XS would be best. My measurements are 31 x 26 x 32, so I would say that this size chart is relatively true to size. I think the "waist" measurement might be referencing the circumference that's closer to your hips or they measured the underwear when the elastic waistband was stretched out to the maximum, as my Hot Pants waist elastic doesn't lay "flat" or "seamless", but A. it doesn't chafe B. bother me. C. whatever. It's really quite minimal and I think had I sized up, I would've been swimming in the merino material. As for the coverage, for my tiny tuckus—the coverage is pretty standard. It's not super cheeky but not super grandma-panty. Sometimes you can see the lines underneath thin clothing, like running spandex but other than that it's really not noticeable.

    That being said, I totally want to replace my entire underwear collection with the Sprite Hot Pant.

    Pretty good...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: M

    Quick drying and lightweight. I wish I would have ordered the small since the medium is slightly too big and they ride up. I mainly use these for yoga and hiking but they would be good for camping as well. I do love how well they have held up since purchasing them.

    Live in these!

    • Size Bought: medium

    These merino undies are a must for camping! They stay comfortable, even after days of wearing them. It's like magic. I won't buy anything else, now that I have experienced the difference.

    The waist band is very comfortable and doesn't give that obnoxious love handle line, that most undies do. The rest of the undies don't have a lot of synthetic material, so they aren't really snug. No worries. They don't roll up or go where they shouldn't.

    Not as good as other Icebreaker products

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    Cute cut, but the seams along the crotch panel are super bulky, which is uncomfortable and very very visible under jeans (don't even bother trying to slip these under athletic clothing) . Too bad, since the leg seams don't show at all. The Siren Hipkini are way better, but of course Icebreaker discontinued them in black and they only come in very adolescent colors and patterns now...

    Good enough

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

    I have to be careful what pants and shorts I wear these with because they tend to slightly loose their shape and bunch up under clothes. The material though feels nice and wicks like a dream.

    Love these undies!

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

    I love these undies! I bought 2 pair a year ago, and I found myself digging through my panty drawer far too frequently searching them out. So, I bought 3 more pair. The reason I am giving 4 vs 5 stars is that there is a distinct difference in the fabric weight of the 2013 vs 2014 version. The 2014, (these), is a much lighter weave than the 2013 version I purchased. I am not sure yet if this will translate into product performance, but it is noticeable.



    With that being said, if the 2014 version performs as the 2013 version, they will be well worth the investment, if you want to be comfortable and dry.



    I am 5'8", 150 pounds with an athletic build, (skier booty), and the medium fit perfectly. I don't have any issues with riding up or getting holes in them, as described in other reviews. Make sure to wash these and hang dry, don't put them in the dryer. These are so comfy, breathable/stay dry, and stay fresh. Enough said.

    eh...

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I didn't like these, they weren't comfortable for me. I've realized I don't really ever like the more boyshort cuts. I have an ample booty and found that these kept riding up uncomfortably. I got these as bikini instead and love them.

    Comfortable but not durable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought 3 pairs of these and wear them only when I go on extensive outdoor trip that requires me to hand wash my own clothing. They are very comfortable, not itchy at all, but sometimes ride up with leg movements. So far I have only wore them on 3 trips and one of them already has a hole in it. I would probably not purchase this item again since it's not a very durable product.

    Best I've Found

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

    I bought my first pair of these directly from Icebreaker about two years ago. Since then, I've slowly added more to the reserves and find that I wear them almost exclusively now.



    I do, however, have a couple of gripes.



    Having purchased them at different times and from both IB and here on Backcountry, I will say that there seems to be some small variances in different lots/years of manufacture. I have two pair that have developed holes in the crotch, which is disappointing, but the others have held up well. I will say that I've not noticed the issue in the newer ones I've purchased, though a part of me wonders if this is simply due to less use, or if there was actually some changes that occurred in the process of making these Sprite Hot Pants. One other issue I've noticed is that a couple of them seem to ride up throughout the day, while the majority do not. Again, I don't know if this is something that has changed with different manufacture dates, or if there is just the occasional pair that ends up with this issue. Honestly, it's a bit confusing because I know my body hasn't changed from day to day.



    That said, they are really comfortable and I appreciate the anti-stink properties of merino wool. I am a hip-and-thigh-thick lady, but have a smaller waist proportionately, so sometimes underwear can be a pain to deal with. The waist band on these sits below my natural waist, so I don't have to worry about them being sloppy or rolling. The legs aren't constricting or uncomfortable either, so they are an easy choice for everyday wear or for outdoor activities.



    Despite my experience with a couple pair of these, I continue to buy them because they are the best I've found thus far and overall the quality is there to justify the price. I definitely recommend giving a pair a try!

    Comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    These are worth the high price tag, especially if you are going to be active all day. Extremely comfortable, breathable, fits me perfectly, and they don't ride up at all.
