Who needs sleep with a midnight sun? Take Active Briefs along on glacier treks, fishing trips and canoeing expeditions past chiseled shorelines in Sweden's Lofoten Islands. These lightweight briefs are made from a stretchy, moisture-wicking fabric with Polygiene(R) permanent odor control. The seamless waistband lies flat and won't roll or bind, and fits easily below layers, and the low-profile, single-sided leg binding stays put without any chafe potential.
