The bluesign-approved fabric wicks moisture, breathes, and resists odor to keep you cool and comfortable when you work up a sweat bushwhacking in some remote canyon.

    • Performance underwear for staying comfy on the go
    • Moisture-wicking and breathable while you hike
    • Seamless waistband lies flat and chafe-free
    • Soft, single-sided binding won't creep or irritate
    • Polygiene permanent odor treatment keeps fabric fresh

    Fresh and Comfy

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

    Great athletic underwear, but definitely not day to day. Very visible panty lines.. also can cut your butt a bit. I only wear these mountain biking and hiking.

    So, so comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 114lbs

    I love these underwear.

    They are the most comfortable, light weight, and breathable underwear that ever were underwear. I did not expect them to be this good, but now I want to replace all of my other underwear with these. They stay in place, they wash up great, and they look good on me. Pretty much everything that underwear should be.

    The only downside is that they do create a very slight dreaded panty lines when wearing some thinner fabrics. This is barely a downside. Buy them anyway.

    Comfy and fresh

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 119lbs

    I really liked these for how comfortable and soft they feel. I also feel fresh after a long day. The problem is that they seem to cut my butt, so I can’t wear them to yoga or gym because they show under my leggings. With jeans and other thicker pants, I don’t have any problems, so I’ll definitely keep them for regular use and for travel.

    Comfy, dries fast & doesn't ride up

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    These are wash and wear, no tug and easy care. The style flatters - it's worth every penny.

    so comfortable and lightweight

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    Wowowowow. These are great. I have a curvy figure, so I'm always in a bit of a rough spot finding good sizing. I am happily surprised with how they fit. They do fit a little bit lower on the waist, but still gives full coverage.

    It's also crazy how lightweight and comfortable they are. I put them on and forgot that I was wearing them! No annoying lines or seams digging into you.

    The wrong cut

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Bought these for my wife. She prefers the Active Brief over the Hipster. They are the exact same quality, but with a different cut. These sit a little lower and ride a little different. Choose which ever style you prefer.

    Worth the Money!

    • Size Bought: Large

    These undies are great! I'm just now starting to replace pairs from about 7 years ago with regular weekly wear (yes 7). They are true to size, and they stay put when you put them on! I would have given them a 5, but they switched to a regular sewn in tag instead of printing the info on the inside of the back like my older pairs.

    Who knew?

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

    Who knew patagonia can also make a pretty cool pair of panties? These are really comfortable and fit really nicely. I like the thick band and the fabric is soft and breathable.

    I love these

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

    Bought size M and L. Large fit perfectly. These are my new favorite undies. For reference, I am 5’6, 145 lbs.

    I Forget I'm Even Wearing These

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 104lbs

    Patagonia really nailed it with the Active Hipster Briefs -- supreme comfort and cuteness all in one package. The seams and waist band of these are perfect -- they are tight enough to stay in place and do not give you wedgies, but not so tight they squeeze your hips or thighs. They move and are breathable so you can definitely wear these for both active use and casual use.

    I love these so much I got a few pairs! Two thumbs up for these hip huggin' beauties.

    "AMAZING!"

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    My sister has sworn by these undies for years so I got her a few for Christmas! She absolutely adores them and I am pretty sure they are just about the only underwear she wears! Looking to buy some for myself here soon, but knew they would be a great gift for her.

    Like I'm not wearing undies!

    I used to have awesome tye-dyed cotton undies made from T-shirt material. I swear they have lasted 10+ years and are now just starting to look wonky in the elastic trim. So since I cannot get those undies anymore, I looked at the Patagonia Active Hipster Briefs. Not cotton, not tye-dyed t-shirt material, but dang if they are not just as comfy if not more so! I really do not feel like there is any undies fighting my pants, riding up my butt, wandering around in the nether-regions... it's super stealth underwear!!

    5'5" and 130lbs and I ordered a couple medium of the stripes. Wash easy, I hang to dry so they last longer. Extremely comfy undies, pretty pricey for panties I know, but I hate diggin' out the wedgie! These have been wedge-free so far, even on a 2 day hike, they didn't stretch out on day 2 and make me cranky.

    My hubby said the stripes looked great on me, so I bought a few more... Thanks Patagonia for some awesome undies! I hope these last a long time!!

    Stays Fresh With Polygiene

      Great reviews below for comfort and fit! I know if my wife found underwear she gave 4-5 stars she would want them to last. Polygiene permanent odor control stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, so you can Wear More and Wash Less®. Products treated with Polygiene do not need to be washed as often, which saves water, energy, time and money as well as improving the lifespan of the products.

      Odor Free. Climate Smart. bluesign® approved.

      Sooooo comfy

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      These are always my go to when it comes to buying underwear, they're the comfiest I can find and probably ever will find. Great for skiing, hiking, even just day to day. Worth even just getting a few pairs for backpacking trips etc. Only down side is all your other underwear will be a disappointment after wearing these. I have 26 waist and smalls fit perfectly!

      Love them!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 135lbs

      I love them. They fit well and are all around super comfortable. I run almost every day, no other underwear feel as good as these working out.

      Functional Comfort

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      These are my favorite underwear for any form of physical activity, or even everyday wear. They breathe extremely well when hiking/skiing while providing all day comfort.

      Good but different sizing

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'1"
      • Weight: 104lbs

      I have purchased these the last three years and find each year the small gets a little smaller. They still fit fine and continue ot have key features I like - nice material, breathable, durable, good colors/prints.

      Pure, hip-hugging comfort

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

      This is the third version of the Patagonia panty I've purchased and I love each one more than the last...this is the lowest-rise version, making it great for hip-hugging jeans...super comfy, stretchy and moisture-wicking like all the Patagonia underwear. This one is probably the cutest/most-stylish of the bunch.
