    Trial and error

    I got these to test out and that’s as far as it went for me. They tended to ride up and bunch which wasn’t for me.

    Good Stuff

    This merino underwear helps with odor so that I can go an extra day or two without having to sacrifice a pair to the dirty clothes hamper. Huge fan of FirstLite and all they stand for.

    Well rounded breifs

    I purchased these for an early archery hunt in September with high 80’s for temps. I didn’t realized that they would be so short but in the end they worked very well. They are extremely light weight and whisk moisture extremely well. I put over 60 miles in 5 days and enjoyed they did not ride up and the waist band stayed put. Those 2 reasons are the down fall of all my other briefs. Cost for me was expensive but worth it for my hunt. I will keep these and definitely explore more firstlite clothing after this initial purchase.

    Never worn wool briefs before. Super Nice and comfy! Fit is good. Haven't worn them long, so can't vouch for their longevity, but my initial impression is that they're like the cadillac of briefs. If these hold up I'm converted....

    Fantastic. I will never go back to cotton or synthetic boxers. I give a slight edge to the longer version of these as there can be a little riding up on the legs. Not enough of an issue to not recommend 100%. Trust me... you will love 'em.

    Wore 6 Days Straight, Lived Up to the Hype

    Merino wool underwear gets a lot of hype for not retaining smell when not washed. I was originally going to get SmartWool briefs, but the reviews weren't that favorable considering how much they cost so I decided to go with FirstLite since I like the quality of their QuarterZip and old Kanab pants I have.

    I had a weeklong motorcycle camping trip and I decided this was the best time put the briefs through a solid field test. I wore these for 6 days straight while riding the motorcycle, hiking, hanging out in town, etc, and they did not disappoint. I only took them off at night to sleep so they can air dry and by the end of the 6th day they did not stink nor have any unfavorable smell. I was truly impressed, so much so that I bought a second pair to alternate each day and that's all I'll be using from now on when I want to pack light and go on long trips. If you're a multi-day back country hunter, then 2 pairs of these briefs is all you need.

    I'm 5'9, 34 waist, about 170 lbs, average build and the medium size fit perfect. Now you're probably wondering about the wedgie issue as other reviewers have mentioned and I was worried about that too. I did experience that only a *few* times in the 6 days I wore them and 98% of the time they did not ride up even when I went on a 3 hour hike. Honestly, the only way you'll know if this will be an issue for you is by biting the bullet and buying a pair like I did and then putting them through a solid field test replicating the kind of use you expect to have in them.

    I was originally going to go with SmartWool briefs since they're a popular name with backpackers but I'm glad I went with FirstLite instead. Many people complain about the fragility of SmartWool and after running the FirstLite briefs through the wash following the care instructions of cold water and low heat dry, I can say that these are well built and should last a long time.

    All I can say is buy them and try it.

    Perfect true fit and great material! The Aerowool kept things nice and cool during spring turkey hunting but also was a great layer to wear during deer season this past year. I will for sure be packing these when I head out west this upcoming hunting season!

    got a pair of these and aero wool boxers for Christmas from my wife. I have to say I love these. I prefer them over the standard boxer cut. Living in south Florida I’m pretty sure i want to get them for everyday use.

    Great comfortable fit. I was worried that those would be too tight around the thighs and ride up but they fit perfectly. The Aerowool is VERY durable and they have .mesh panels on the inner legs where the majority of friction is going to happen. I was also worried about these wearing out after a few extended hikes and preceding washes. Get rid of your cotton undies next to your skin; these manage moisture like a dream and were accaptable as multi-day underwear in the back country (which I would NEVER be able to do with cotton).
