Positive Reviews:

I invested in buying all Ex-officio underwear - over the past 3 years - both these and the "boy short" - I purchased about 16 of them, in many colors - both those shown here and others that have since been discontinued.
They are extremely comfortable and stay dry, as well as drying fast - overnight - when hand washed.
However, I have found that these just don't do very well over a longer period of time being washed in a home washing machine, even on delicate cycle - (the upright kind of washer, not the new High Efficiency kind) - and then being placed in a full-heat dryer, with the rest of my underthings. I've had to replace them as they faded and became stretched out from the washing/drying process.
I think these are well made, but the "technical" fabric is just not up to every-day wear and frequent washing. I would buy these for travel and other special uses - but for the expense - I find that much less expensive 3-to a package for $10 cotton full-cut or boy-cut underwear is just as comfortable - and fine as long as I have access to a washing machine. I'm saving the ones that are still in decent condition for travel - about 4-5 pair - and the others that are still left have to be thrown out over the next 6 months as they get to the point where the fabric loses its shape to the point of becoming uncomfortable. Best of luck with your holiday shopping!

I love these underwear. They are soooo comfortable and dry soooo fast. They are super soft, non-binding, and hand washable. They stretch and give with every movement. You don't even know they are on. I wear them every day. I chose the full-cut briefs because my hiking gear are all waist high (as opposed to hip-huggers. On the trail I can simply pull everything down and everything up in one swoop. Important when you are trying not to get caught in the "act". Plus, even little dribbles don't smell. They hand wash well. Even blood washes out. Of course, I love the black ones best as they never look dirty. Just so you know, the bikinis are made out of the same material as the full-cut briefs.

Where's 3x ?

These were vacation only briefs (light weight packing) but once I wore them during the hot summer in Europe I switched to everyday wear at home. Sunny Southern California can get hot too. My ONLY complaint ? What happened to 3x sizing???
I originally purchased these from REI last year and when I tried to buy some more now you only go up to size 2x ! I don't like tight binding underwear and as I am a plus size woman I appreciated the fact that I could get these practical, comfortable, well fitting underwear from REI. Please contact the manufacturer on behalf of your customers and tell them to bring back 3x . They are the best moisture wicking underwear I have found.

The ad on the package says something like 16 countries, 90 days and 1 pair of panties (well 2). That is because these are great travel undies. They keep clean and comfy through long active trips and dry quickly when washed, so I believe the statement could be very true. They are ideal for a trip if you are a minimalist packer like myself. I have 4 pairs for a month long trip into the jungle where they will be used exactly as intended and used well! I strongly recommend these undies for anyone who likes travel but not packing, or just likes very low maintenance undies.

Totally dry in under 6 hours!

I bought these on sale along with an REI brand of similar style which was also on sale. I wanted a true comparison of both before I decided on which brand I wanted to invest into. Both were comfortable, but the Ex Officio briefs dried more quickly (though REI brand dried within a reasonable amount of time). Though more expensive, I think knowing that these dry more quickly is what will bring me back to Ex Officio. Comfortable, quick drying and certainly worth it for those of us who travel a lot, camp or engage in any activity where being a minimalist really matters.

I purchased two pairs to take on a trip to Africa where I was not going to be able to "do laundry," yet I couldn't very well carry two weeks worth of fresh underwear. By sink rinsing, I was able to have clean underwear each day. As they dried so quickly even one pair might have been fine, but that takes light packing to the extreme! I recommend a multi-purpose soap like Dr. Bronner's for one's travel bag. These underwear don't take up much room, are super comfortable, wash up nicely, and dry quickly. What more could you ask for?

Super Product!

I bought 2 pairs for hiking and backpacking because I like to travel light and don't want to fuss over stuff like laundry (!) These are much more comfortable than ordinary nylon and lighter in weight than clammy cotton. They fit well, wash well, dry fast. I'm ordering 2 more pairs. Can't think of anything that's "not so great" about them. Would love to see them in more color choices, but other than that, I'm very happy with these and will probably wear them to rags on the trail.

expensive, but actually worth it!!!!

Bought two pair for golfing and traveling. I was looking for a pair of comfortable wicking panties. I wanted them "travel worthy" - to wash and dry out quickly. The panties are sturdy, fit well (if you buy one size up), and these fit the bill. I liked my two pair so much I bought three more pair! I am an active woman!
These are nice panties (expensive) but they work well and seem to hold up well.

Took three brands to Belize for variety of outdoor adventures. These performed the best. I could live for weeks/months on three pair. Well worth the price. I like the beige ones best, since they don't show through light colored pants and shorts. They washed clean, after sliding down muddy slopes that really ground the dirt into them. They ran a bit big in the butt for me, so I might buy a size smaller next time.

the most comfortable briefs ever

I initially got these for hiking and bicycling, after reading how comfortable they were. I soon realized they're good for anything, anytime. I look forward to taking them on my next trip, as they dry fast and will eliminate the need to pack several pairs of briefs. They also should be super comfortable for long plane trips and several hours of travel.

They're ok, but....

I have several of the full cut briefs, and thought that was what I was getting when I purchased these. These don't have the ex-officio tag, fit smaller, and seem to be of lesser quality. They do have flatlock seams compared to the regular briefs. I still prefer the full cut briefs item # 684402

That said, sure beats cotton or other brands on the trail.
campchick at REI on 05/05/2010

too much whiz and ot enough bang

i expected that for the price, the seams at least would be symmetrical. the fit felt a bit skimpy for the size, i wear a size 8 pants and bought a size medium panty.
