Preparing for a 6 day hike in Japan I have been buying woollen and bamboo undies from different name brands in an effort to find THE style and fibre that won't provide a wedgie (!), will not fall down or chafe on inner leg, will not itch, will not smell and will dry super quickly. I have spent a small fortune on this endeavour. I can stop looking as I have found the perfect pair of travel/hike undies in the Merino Brief Base Layer 180g.
"Sensible" waist elastic and smooth seams and total sweat wicking - these are perfect.
Thank you MacPac.
I now own 6 pairs of these undies - one for nearly every day of the week, or every day of a hiking trip. Like many I have tried a few brands/styles however these Macpac undies I just can't fault. I love the wide waist band that keeps them still, and their cut - they feel and look good hiking or just doing 'business as usual' throughout the year. They also wash really well - no shrinkage, pulls or other issues.
I do like these undies but as 2 more pairs have 'runs' in them I'm not sure about buying again. They seem to last as long as much cheaper underwear. Sad!
