Love them but disappointed.
I love the feel of these undies but they ride up my butt cheeks so a bit uncomfortable for tramping. This may be improved with tighter elastic. Also after only about 3 washes I noticed 2 little holes about the size of a cent piece in them! Really disappointed.

Hello Barlou, thanks for the review. We will send you an email now to arrange refund or replacement - these shouldn't have developed holes so quickly. Thanks the Macpac Team

Love, love, love.
I love my Marino undies. Warm, comfy - perfect for winter and summer.

My only question mark is around the treatment of the sheep? I know there's some pretty horrendous treatment of some Marino sheep in Australia.

I hope that Macpac monitor their sources closely?

My Girls love these underwear ,one complaint is that they seem to rip and the side of the waist band .One of my girls is pregnant and stated the other day that they are the only comfy undies she has so I bought some extra pairs for Easter

Rides up your butt
The design means they ride up my butt when I walk. Not exactly a desirable trait in tramping undies!! I don't own any other undies that do this do it's not my body shape. Definitely won't be buying again

Only underwear I own
So comfortable. Only underwear I buy now. Especially good for long flights or treks where showers might be few and far between

Any plans to stop packaging these briefs in unnecessary plastic? I really like them otherwise.
Nat P on Feb 13, 2020

Thank you for your question. We really appreciate that we share the same concerns regarding the environmental impact of our packaging.
Unfortunately, we did have to make a shift towards a soft plastic packaging for our base layers garments, as the cardboard packaging was getting damaged and was not durable enough for transport and merchandising in stores. This soft plastic packaging is recyclable and we are looking at options for our customers to make this easier, such as collection bins at Macpac stores. We are also looking into having an option when customers purchase these garments online to click an option to not have the packaging included in their order.

We do have many ideas in the pipeline and we are always looking at ways to reduce our environmental impact from the company as a whole.

Kind regards,
The Macpac Team
