The Women's Wick Active Brief is First Lite's go-to base layer bottom for high output hunts in hot weather. Using our airy, 150 gram Aerowool fabric, this brief is cut to optimize mobility and fit like a second skin.

Ultralight 150 Aerowool construction combines the finest, 17.5 micron merino wool available with 37.5-activated nylon fibers to create a super-charged fabric with incredible performance benefits.

Product Size: L
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 150-155 pounds
Location: In the woods
Primary Use: What everyone else uses underwear for???
What you'd expect from women's underwear designed by dudes.

These have a strong, wide elastic waistband, like a guy's boxer. The lower leg opening has no elastic whatsoever, just a rolled over hem, again like most guy's boxer briefs. Without any sort of lite elastic in the leg openings (like most ladies underwear I've worn through the years) , they do have a decided tendency to ride up- even if you read the reviews and size up like I did. Even at the larger size, there's not much seat coverage in the size 'large'. Presumably if you're getting the larger size, you have a larger booty and need a bit more fabric to cover it, otherwise it just ends up a very uncomfortable thong. Given that there is a seam between the back and front pieces at this critical juncture- having it ride up causes further chafing in some delicate areas. Not that big an issue if I'm sitting on stand all day, but definitely an issue on a long hike. The strong elastic definitely accentuates the 'muffin top' phenomenon if you carry and extra 'softness' around your hips. The bulging is not really a big deal or noticeable under hunting layers, but I was hoping these might also double as an everyday garment that was more breathable than the synthetic microfiber things everyone makes these days, but with a better dry time than cotton. I've been a big fan from the beginning and most of my hunting gear comes from FL. I really wanted to like these, but they are big "meh" in my book. I prefer the boy short things FL use to make for women, with a nice wide, flat waistband and zero wedgie potential. I hope that for the next version of these, FL brings in some women to design/field test them first- of all sizes. If you're a women's size 6 or smaller these will probably be fine for you. If you're an 8 or larger, you're likely going to have issues with riding up/major wedgies/chaffing/muffin tops, even with the larger size...

Product Size: L
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 145
Location: Hiking and sweating for multiple days in a row: dries quickly and does not accumulate smells.
Primary Use: Backpack Hunting for elk and deer
Runs small; if you buy a size bigger they are perfect!

I have an athletic booty and these looked like slim coverage, so I bought one and half sizes larger than my dress size on the sizing chart. I am a size four dress but I bought a Large. The waistband is comfortable and smooth, it doesn't move or irritate my skin even with a heavy backpack strap and wearing these multiple days in a row. The soft material hangs nicely since i bought a larger size so I haven't gotten any wedgies. I plan to buy another pair, again in a Large although I am a Small/Medium in everything else.

Fit: 3
Product Size: L
Height: 5' 1"
Weight: 150lbs - 160lbs
Location: Wyoming
Primary Use: Spot & Stalk
Fit Comments: Fit is great, I like the minimal elastic around the leg holes to reduce chaffing. Hugs my curves nicely.
Fits Nicely!

I have not used these when hiking yet, but like them so far. They look good, so says my husband!

Fit: 3
Product Size: S
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 130lbs - 140lbs
Primary Use: Lifestyle
Fit Comments: If you have a thicker waist line I could see the waist band on this feeling too snug and maybe causing a muffin top situation. So if that’s a concern maybe order a size up. But I love the cut and style of these! They’re still feminine (:
I can’t even tell I have them on

I’m surprised these only have 3 stars from previous buyers. I LOVE them! My hubby purchased them for me without my knowing and I told him I need two of every color lol. The material is thin and breatheable and super comfy. I wear/wash these often, they have yet to show any signs of wear and tear.

Fit: 1
Product Size: S
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 130lbs - 140lbs
Location: California
Primary Use: Spot & Stalk
Fit Comments: If you have a smaller rear end with tiny hips it would probably fit great. But it you have a bit of a booty and some hips definitely size up. Low rise style more of a cheeky coverage.
Love the product but get a size larger than normal....or two

I love these briefs. I was wanting a pair that fit comfortable and did not have to worry about them while I'm packing out. The larger hip band helps keep them from bunching up. The fabric is extremely breathable and light weight.
