I took 2 pair with me for an 8 day hunt. These exceeded my expectations! They were warm when they needed to be and kept me cool when the temps got up. Never once did I have any problems with chaffing. Temps were between 25-70 degrees. Also helped with keeping odor to an absolute minimum.
I bought a couple pairs for a western elk hunt. I figured I spend a little extra money on boxers since I'd be wearing them 3-4 days at a time. The temperatures ranged from the High 20's all the way up to a couple days that reached the high 70's and I was comfortable at all temperatures with minimal odor. Really happy with this product and happy I spent the extra money on a quality pair of boxers.
I wear a 32 (recommended 31-33 for medium). The waistband is loose and there is bunching of material around waistband.
I ordered these with the goal of wearing them on a week-long elk expedition into the backcountry. I had high expectations; temps ranged from high teens to mid 50s, and I was planning on bringing a single pair of underwear that had to do it all. 7 days later, I emerged from the pines with a solid respect for the power of merino. Minimal odor despite many hard miles of sweat-soaked hiking. After day 3 I noticed some pilling on the thighs where my pants rubbed against the fabric, but only time will tell if that matters down the road. The one 'downside'** I would say is that if your sleep system is warm enough to keep you comfortable, these underwear are probably too warm to wear to bed. Next time I'll bring something more lightweight to sleep in and hike in these during the day. **Not actually a downside. These are supposed to be warm.
