SmartWool Microweight Bikini Briefs - Wool - Women'sis rated3.6out of5by5.
Rated1out of5byfromthin fabric isn't durableComfortable, wicking, natural fiber, but the micro weight = thinness that tears easily both in the wool itself and the seams. Both silver pairs torn within months of normal use, gentle wash, line dried. More durabiility please.

Rated3out of5byfrom"Comfortable, but fell apart"Unfortunately, the elastic wore out/unravelled itself within the first four months of regular wear. They are bunchy and torn-looking all around the hem. Undies ought to last a bit longer!

Rated5out of5byfromAwesome!Purchased two pairs and I absolutely love them! I've worn them in weather from 30-85 – comfortable no matter what. Half of the time I can't even tell I'm wearing underwear, it's lovely. These are by far the nicest and most enjoyable under-garments I have ever owned. I'd recommend them for everyday use as well as serious outdoor endeavors.

Rated4out of5byfromNice but not as comfy as PatagoniaI was excited to see wool underwear thinking that my skin might appreciate the fact that wool retains its warmth when wet during my long winter runs. However, these are too light to provide any warmth; they would likely work better in the summer than on my long winter runs. Maybe SmartWool can make a mid or heavier weight version for winter use? As far as comfort goes, I liked that they have no elastic but found them less comfy than my favorite Patagonia undies (the active hipster brief). These microbriefs are so lightweight that they don't stay in place when I'm running so they really aren't well-suited for heavy activity.
