I like these. Breathable, comfortable, no tag to annoy you, and they stay in place. Be warmed they are the size of a full swimsuit bottom. This may not bother you whatsoever, but it limits which casual clothes I can wear them with. I like bikini-style panties better, so I probably wouldn't buy another pair unless they were on super clearance.

I liked the Patagonia Barely Bikini better. Again, if this isn't important to you, you will probably really like these. The fabric is medium weight, not too hot or too cool. Seams are not noticable, as advertised.

In short, I'm pretty skeptical of a $20 pair of underwear, but I want to wear them all the time, so it's not a high cost per wear over the lifetime of the panties. To me, they are worth it.

I decided, daringly, to order three pairs of these Barely Bikinis without trying them before. They were on sale, and I already loved the two pairs of the fuller-coverage Patagonia Active Briefs I had. They had rapidly become the first ones I put on whenever I had the choice.

The Barely Bikinis are better in some ways, and I'm glad I went ahead and got all three colors. They are as soft as the Active Briefs, but I don't have to worry about wearing them with low cut jeans. The cut is very flattering, they stay in place, they are breathable and comfortable. There isn't even a tag to annoy or irritate.

Other observations: they are definitely a thinner fabric than the Active Briefs (a plus in the humidity, maybe a minus in cold weather). Honestly, I haven't tried them in potential panty-line situations, so I can't comment on that.

Incidentally, I also ordered the Mountain Hardwear Advance Lightweight Brief (those sales really sucked me in). They are fine and I like them, but they are the size of a swimsuit bottom.
