wifey loves them
Got these for my wife because she has issues with other base layer bottoms causing chaffing and the seams causing discomfort. We did a 10 mile scouting trip in the backcountry of oregon and she had no chaffing or seam discomfort. Thanks first lite for a great merino product for the girls.

Love these
Super comfortable, and breathable. Great for hunting that requires a lot of movement, as it doesn't creep up in places it doesn't belong on long hikes, stalks, or crawling. I purchased a size smaller than I typically wear as recommended by another reviewer and I am so glad I did. These run large, so I would also recommend ordering a size down. I usually wear medium, I ordered smalls and they fit perfect. Will definitely be ordering a few more!

Multi use, comfy and keeps you dry, a must have!
The Syringa short is a rad, multi use, comfortable base layer that kept me dry after many hours of hiking for multiple days. They washed up easy and dried up quick in the field. I find they run a little big in saying that they stayed in place with no creeping or bunching up. Layer very well under the Larkspur bottoms or on their own under my First Lite outerwear.
A definite base layer must have!

Love these shorts
I find myself wearing these shorts all the time. From hunting, fishing, and hiking to around the house or running! Love them. To me they ran a bit big and I wear a size 8 regularly.. I ended up buying a small!

Great base
Great for warm or cold weather. Merino makes it scent free for days of scouting, camping, or hunting. Order a size down as they stretch quite a bit. I have several pairs and plan on getting several more!

Awesome But Run Large
Usually women's lines run a little small on me so I think I erred on the side of caution as I was a little between sizes. My next pair (or hopefully several pairs) will be in the smalls. They are worth every penny and I have layered them under both outer layers and midlayers. Even though they fit a little baggy, they don't ride up and are super comfortable.

Super soft
I wasn't sure how well these would ride with all the hiking we do but these puppies are some of the most comfortable "underwear" I have EVER worn. Super soft and comfortable the whole way! On top of the comfort they are resistant to odors so yes I have worn them for multiple days out hunting. Worth every penny!

Best way to replace traditional underwear!
Not only are these extremely soft they are comfortable all they way around. I have had to go several days wearing the same pair and never had a problem with sweat or stink. I use them for more then just hunting.
- Jeannie Steiling on 8/22/2016
Great Product
Comfortable, no sweat, no stink, soft on skin and breathable. Run slightly big, and stretch a little as they are worn. I plan on purchasing many more of these as they are the most comfortable underwear that I own!
