Great active underwear

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Every ExOfficio product we've gotten has been great for active individuals and it's not different with their underwear. The material is comfortable, conforming with movement, and versatile. They're breathable and dry very quickly.

Goodbye Patagonia

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Tried a pair to replace Patagonia Women's Active briefs (which I've worn for years and current quality and fit are NOT the same). Love, love, love the fit, the quality, and the style. For me, the bikini brief are more of a french cut, rather than bikini cut. They cost less than the Patagonia Active briefs and are a better product. Easy care and air dry super fast. Seems like a no-brainer! Ex Officio has gained a new customer. Just bought 6 pairs! And they're on sale at Backcountry.com! How great is that.

Give-N-Go Bikini Brief

I've been missing out!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I was searching frantically for underwear that fit my thicker thighs and butt comfortably without constantly feeling like I need to pick a wedgie! I'm 5'4, range from 8 to a 12 in jeans, medium up top, and ordered a Large - based on the reviews. I wasn't sure about these at first.... but after putting them on, I don't know why I didn't buy these sooner! They are sooooo comfortable and flattering!
I got these right in time for my camping trip in Grand Teton and they were perfect! Only took this pair and another style from ExOfficio for the long weekend and hardly noticed I had them on. I sweated significantly on the hikes we did and yet these still felt super fresh.
Love 'em!!

Good gift

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My wife indicated that these were comfortable and sheer.


    Comfy and dries quickly. Product is as described


      Fanny sweat is the bane of my summer life, and these help a lot. They are light and airy and true to size.

      The sexiest panties I own, obviously.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Size Bought: Medium

      My favorites for hiking! Extremely comfortable, non chaffing and I hardly notice them. If there was a situation where I might want to take my pants off to get into a hot spring or something water related, I wouldn't feel self conscious. They are pretty discreet and seem to dry very quickly.

      Love it

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XS

      Comfy, light, quick drying. I bought one to test out and now I'll probably be buying a few more! Perfect for hiking, traveling, and everyday life.

      Wife loved them

        Wife was very happy with the purchase, comfy and great to travel in.

        Had to return for sizing

          Bought these as a gift and had to return them. They run large. My friend tried them on over her long underwear and they still were baggy in the butt.

          Never sweaty, never stinky!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: Runs large
          • Size Bought: SMALL

          Before you read on, you must know... these are DA BOMB. Seriously I am tempted to buy 2 of every color. These are so comfortable, and perfect for anything. REALLY. They are the perfect traveling and camping undies, but honestly I wear these to climb, trail run, ski, bike, swim (okay only in emergencies), sleep, and every damn day all day! They are softer than a baby's bottom (don't you miss that feeling?) and they are so fast drying you won't even remember they were ever wet! GET THESE.

          These are great for wearing backpacking, as they feel like you're wearing nothing, so there are no pressure points from your heavy pack, weighing on the seams.

          I did 4 stars because I haven't washed them a ton. The have stayed exceptionally odor free, for a synthetic fabric. I'm much impressed, as this is essential for backpacking.

          I'm not solid on the sizing. I wish I had a small to try, to compare. I'm on the cusp of small and medium, in life, and I have a modestly sized rear. They medium fits, but it covers more than I am used to. So, I wonder if I should have gone for the small. I'll update this if I decide to buy the small, as well.

          All the same, they don't ride up, wiggle out of place, or ride high past the tops of my pants or shorts. They are like having nothing on. I have been very surprised at the high quality level of this product. Go for it!

          Love them!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          These are great! Super light weight, breathable and moisture wicking. I love using these for when I'm being active. They dry fast and are very comfortable. Full coverage but not too much fabric. They fit great!

          Greatest Pair of Underwear. Ever.

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Medium

          I heard a lot about these fabled Ex Officio underwear and had to give them a try after hearing all the rave reviews here and elsewhere. I can positively say they are true! I absolutely love these! They are a bit pricey at full price, but well worth the money. Breathable, quick drying and very comfortable. Highly recommended! Just a note that these bikini brief style are not low rise. They aren't too high, either (no granny-panties!).

          Thanks for the review Gabrielle! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

          Love these for traveling

            Go to undies for traveling!

            Nice undies

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: True to size

            I have a few pairs of ExOfficio undies, and these are my favorite cut. Very comfortable.

            My go to panties

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
            • Fit: True to size
            • Size Bought: XL

            I got a 3 pairs for a week long backpacking trip. They were comfortable, easy to clean, quick to dry, an packed well. I like them so well that I purchased 3 more pairs to replace my old cotton briefs. You won't regret purchasing them.

            What's the difference between the "Give n Go" Bikini Brief and the regular bikini brief?

            If they are both from ExOfficio, it is just a name update. Give-n-Go is the name of the material used in the underwear, same material for several years. They did upgrade the anti-microbial so it is longer lasting, but that is only recent update. Hope this helps.
