Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my Life (no kidding!) I hope and pray that Patagonia never stops making these underwear. Never in my life have I worn anything that is as comfortable as these! I hardly realize that I have them on, they are so thin that they are not easily seen under clothing, and they wash extremely well. One other reviewer said that taking the tag out caused the seam to unravel, but I have about 6 pairs and I did not find this to be true. There is an excess seam that has been sewn in so that the tag is not a part of the main seam in the underwear. If you take a knife and carefully remove only that seam, then you will be fine! I also read in another review that these underwear lost their shape. I have to disagree 100%. My 6 pairs (which I have had for ~1 year) have totally retained their shape and I wear them daily. Totally recommend these, but wish they weren't so pricy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very thick seam I bought these about a month ago looking for comfortable underwear to wear in the humid tropics. I do like the fabric and find that the tag is easy enough to remove, but the leg holes have an incredibly thick seam. I can feel the seam pressing against my legs uncomfortably (and I promise they're not too small) and it's actually distracting. Im not usually one to care but I would feel uncomfortable wearing them with jeans because of the thick panty lines that they create. Overall I find it disappointing and will not be buying another pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great fit but terrible quality Bought two pair 2 months ago and both are unraveling. So disappointed. Wish I'd read reviews before purchasing because this is a common problem. No REI anywhere near me or I'd return them immediately. Don't waste your money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have been wearing these for years and have lived them. I just purchased additional ones and discovered that there is now a worthless sewn in tag. Since the stamped information still is there- it is perplexing why you would add the tag. You cannot completely remove the tag without destroying the stitching and it really undermines the appeal of these (no seams, no elastic, no tags). Why oh why would Patagonia do this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, I own 4 pairs Bought recently, easily removed the white tags on the inside (just pull slightly). Great product, will buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Patagonia Wins! I've been a solid Smart Wool panty purchaser for years. Unfortunately, REI no longer carries that brand and Smart Wood has discontinued the style I like. Needing underwear, I ordered a pair of ExOfficio Bikini Briefs and a pair of Patagonia Barely Hipster Briefs. I'm now qualified to compare all 3 brands. 1) I love the feel and fit of Smart Wool. Con: They're pretty pricey. 2) The ExOfficio feels nice, but they're big for size and maybe that's why they're riding up. The ExOfficio bunch up, I think because they're too big for the size they say. They look (and feel) like granny panties. 3) Patagonia is my all-out-drop-dead favorite of all time. You don't even realize they're on, they stay put, they're sexy looking, and although pricey, they're still a couple $$ less than Smart Wool, they're true to size. All 3 dry quickly and are good for outdoor activities. Bottom Line: I just ordered 2 more pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lost shape even with careful care I bought these 3 months ago, and they fit great initially. However, even though I have line dried them, the elastic has totally gone out on all of the pairs and they won't stay up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hipster Briefs I did buy a pair 1 year ago and they still look great! Mine get washed in the washer and put in the dryer. Mine retained there shape and don't roll down or rise up! LOVE them, my favorite pair of underwear. Buying some more but wish they were less pricy. I did try to find another product that compares to this fit and I have not been able to find one.
