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. Pairs with our Active Mesh Bra.

Whether you're enjoying an afternoon at your favorite local sport crag or are on a multi-day thru-hike, the Patagonia Women's Active Brief is up to the adventure. Its lightweight, seamless fabric wicks away moisture and provides plenty of stretch to keep you moving comfortably. A wide waistband lies flat against your skin and won't roll or bind, while the soft, single-sided binding at the leg openings won't chafe or creep.

If you want guaranteed comfort from the skin-out, start with the Patagonia Active Briefs for women. These polyester underwear have a touch of spandex for a body-hugging fit that wicks moisture, dries out quickly and feels soft and breathable during long rides in the car, long hikes on the trail and long runs on snow-drenched mountains. The recycled polyester content comes from used soda bottles, unusable fabric scraps and recycled garments to keep your impact on the earth minimal. The flat elastic waistband wont bind or roll, the single-sided binding at the leg openings wont chafe and the min-rib crotch breathes for maximum comfort. Patagonia panties are built to last through washings in camp to sink laundry in hotel rooms to third world laundry ladies, the Patagonia Women's Active Briefs will ride comfortably and always have your back side.
