I LOVE THIS UNDERWEARDefinitely not high fashion, but this underwear if comfortable, easy to clean, fits me well though I haven't traveled to extremely humid places like other reviewers. Dries super fast as promised, and seems quite clean. I've taken two pairs on a 10 day train trip across America and back, a week in Israel, and two weeks in France. It is just so wonderful not lugging dirty underwear around. And if you do the towel roll-up thing they tell you to it dries even faster (but it'll dry in a reasonable amount of time if you skip it). Seriously I love this underwear and it's changed my travel style. I need some socks in the same idea.
Pricey but SO WORTH IT.

Elastic waistband too tightI got these in the nude color and they are full-coverage underpants. The fabric is great but the elastic waistband is pretty tight and while it wasn't terribly uncomfortable, it gave me a bit of muffin top which is not very cute. I've only worn them a few times but I can tell the elastic in the waistband is starting to get stretched out (it's already doing that ripple-y thing by the seam). The rest fits fine, and I got the same size (S) I wear in the lacy underwear.
I'd pass on these and give the lacy bikini or low rise bikini a try, even though they're a bit more expensive. These tend to sit unworn in my drawer more than others.

Target audienceI was very excited to try this new pair of panties. I am in my early 50s and beginning to adventure into hiking and have been working out with a trainer. I am a size 16 but far more fit than I've been in 20 years. These panties would be ideal for my new nature explorations.
I say all that to preface that I am not Exofficio's target audience and as such, the panty's size and fit were disappointing and overall lacking comfort . The size and cut would be fabulous for a 5'8" more sleek woman. My 5'4 proportion is not the "model" for this cut/design.
I look forward to loosing more inches and will be excited to pull them out to try again another time. Until then they go into a drawer.

Did the job, but not true to size.After reading rave reviews about these briefs, I decided to buy a couple of pairs. I was traveling to a hot climate so I thought it would be great to have some quick drying underpants. They seemed to fit great, not too tight, just like I like them. However, once they got wet when I had to wade through water up to my chest, they started to stretch out. They served their purpose of drying quickly, but I suggest going a size down. I noticed this same thing on other Exofficio clothing I got. I'm very happy with the quality and performance. I'll just remember to buy the smaller size next time.

Good idea but it doesn't workThe idea of carrying one or two pair of underwear on a trip is a good one: They don't take up precious space in your luggage when they're clean and you don't have a bulging plastic bag full of dirty underwear to carry home. I bought two pair of these at ExOfficioâs Belltown store and took them on a trip to the Caribbean. The weather was especially humid and the underwear took a really long time to dry. In fact, I don't think they dried any faster than the gynecologically friendly cotton underwear that I wear day in, day out, and which are actually more comfortable and more affordable.

Very comfortable, not so prettyThese are among the most comfortably fitting underwear I've ever owned. They wash and dry quickly and easily. I could certainly see doing extended travel with only 2-3 pairs of underwear if they were all like this, especially in a hot climate. You wouldn't even have to wait for them to dry if you're wearing a skirt or dress.
This is definitely function over form though. I got both black and tan, and the tan ones specifically are pretty unattractive. No problem for me and my travel style, but probably not the best if you were planning any romantic encounters.

A New Way of ThinkingI bought these (2 pairs) because I'm going on a short trip in a few months and simply wanted to save packing space. I especially liked the features and ease of care. Now they are nearly the only panties I use. I simply handwash them each day - rotating the 2 - takes no time at all. That has greatly reduced my regular laundry load. They're super comfortable in every way, and I find everything you say they are. That I like! I live in a Southern state where it gets hot and humid - again the wicking feature and breathability factors come into great play here. Thinking of expanding your market in any way to include more not-necessarily-exotic-travel use? Yeah, they cost a bit more than others, but they deliver. I don't mind paying for that.

Fitness Favorite!These undies changed my whole gym life! Instead of piles of the grandma-panties I'd been wearing during my workout, I keep a pair of these bad boys in my gym locker and have a LOT less laundry to do. When I hop in the shower after my workout, I give them a quick wash, dry them in the swimsuit water-extractor, hang them back up, and slip into my sexier underoos for the day. Additionally, they are super comfortable and don't ride up during long runs and hated challenges with the stairs machine. I'd give them a million stars if I could!
