StoicMerino Performance Boy Boxer - Women's


The Stoic Women's Merino Performance Boy Boxer may consist entirely of wool, but it's not the thick sweater wool you're thinking of. This lightweight, performance underwear is designed to wick moisture, dry quickly, and keep odors at bay while you hike, run, bike, or ski.

  • Performance underwear for the trail or gym
  • Merino wool manages moisture and resists odor
  • Machine wash with cold water and hang dry

I love these undies. I wear them for outdoor activities and they're great added insulation on your butt when ski touring!

Awesome underwear

These are my favorite underwear next to the Patagonia active mesh boyshorts. I love that I can wear them to the gym and have no visible underwear line. The wool is perfect year round because it is cozy but also moisture wicking. I am usually a size small and got the xs. They fit perfectly but may shrink in the wash. I think a small would work too.

Great for bikepacking

Loved having these for my 6 week bike tour. They hold up to a lot of sweat and exercise without smelling or wearing through. Easy to handwash and dries quickly. They're also so comfy, somewhat covering, and thick, so you can pretty much walk around camp in them too.

Unanswered Question

Is this a different product than the Stoic Merino Boy Boxer (AKA my most favorite of all time unders)? The last time I stocked up they were not this expensive and there were three available colors.

Not 100% but pretty close

I fell in love with the original Stoic boy shorts as many of us women did. When I saw these in I immediately had to check them out. First, they are much thinner and they seem to feel like they fit a bit loose compared to the originals, I am tempted to size down. Still they are much better than anything else I have ever tried. So.. Still loyal.
