usually love but sizing now off

These have been my go-to underwear for years. They are comfortable, cute, and stay in place during active outdoor adventures. They are quick-dry and great for traveling, hiking, biking, caving, etc. I have ordered these same underwear many times. However, the sizing on my last order was way off. The diameter of the wasteband on the same size I had previously ordered is 2" inches smaller than on previous versions, so they no longer fit. Not sure if they changed the sizing or if there are inconsistencies in the manufacturing. Anyway, had to return.

The only underbears for me

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

Not the kind of product I would have bought on my own, but thank goodness for my mom who tried out a pair and found them too small. These are now the only underpants I will wear - as excellent under a cocktail dress (no VPL) as they are camping for several days. Extremely comfortable, lightweight, don?t bunch, can?t feel the seams, dries fast, doesn?t stretch out, breathable, stay in place, good coverage, don?t chafe. Extremely durable - I have pairs that are years old and still going strong. I recommend them to ANYONE who asks.

My Lady Loves These

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 3"

Disclaimer: I work for Backcountry so I write reviews for the stuff that my wife gets too. She adores these and is up to 6 pairs now. They are her go-to when we are hiking, backpacking, cycling, etc. *She wears a 25 waist in jeans from Anthropologie & Prana and wears a Small in these. The size details attached to this review are her stats. According to the size chart that would mean these run small, as she wears XS in most things.

So comfortable!

I've used it several times

These are great. I didn't have super high expectations, but the fit is full coverage, they are super comfortable, and quite cute! Great for active and everyday wear.

My favorite active undies

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 4"

I wear these for all my active ventures. I wear them under leggings for paddling practice and outrigger races and they stay comfortable throughout the race which includes jumping in and out of the ocean numerous times. Far more comfortable than trying to wear bathing suit bottoms which cause chafe after long hours paddling. These are also my go to undies for hiking, backpacking and travel. They are great quality and last through years and years of activities. Lite weight and dry fast for backpacking purposes. Love them!! They are super expensive so I always buy when I see them on sale.
