my new everyday under garment!
March 11, 2011
I initially bought this underwear to wear under my hiking pants. I wanted something comfortable that will not ride up and will wick away sweat. This underwear surprised me! It feels so comfortable that I forget I am wearing it. It is durable and washes well. I loved it so much that I bought a few more and now this is my favorite underwear under my suit pants for work! I know it is pricy, but it is worth it because it holds up so well wash after wash. I would highly recommend this underwear!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use
Lightweight and comfortable!
November 20, 2011
I have worn Patagonia Barely bras for years and was thrilled to find the hipsters to match. The material is lightweight, stays put throughout the day, and maintains its shape after numerous washings. They also dry quickly and are very comfortable, even during physical activity. These hipsters are well worth the money and are the perfect compliment to the Barely bra...combine the two and you'll forget you're even wearing underwear!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
Dry and breathable to wear
July 28, 2011
Really buy the right, this summer, particularly hot, very uncomfortable to wear trousers to go out, with this underwear will not be hot to wear pants, let me go more comfortablePros: Build quality, Performance, Great value
June 02, 2011
LOVE these hipsters. Super comfortable, wash great and dry fast. They run a little bigger than Patagonia's other hipsters but it could be b/c it's a softer material. I ordered more of these in different colors.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
comfy, durable, cute
October 13, 2011
incredibly comfortable--these never ride up or get bunchy. they are also great for travel because they dry quickly. they also have a nice pattern on them. true to size. oh, and i've washed these a lot because they're my first choice when the laundry is clean, and they still look brand new!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
underwear easy to forget about!!!
February 19, 2010
the most comfortable underpants i own! i actually forget i am wearing them which is the highest compliment i can offer to any garment. they are wonderfully light weight and stretchy. i wish they came in a prettier assortment of colors. i have washed these about 8 times and they seem to be holding up well too.
September 27, 2010
Nice coverage, no creeping. If you like the active hipster, this has the same shape. The fabric is lighter and more sheer, hence the "barely" hipster. Very breathable, dries quickly, good for warm weather activities.Pros: Great design, great coverage, flattering style
love them... will buy more... says it all
May 01, 2010
love them... will buy more... says it all... good for active and regular activities
So comfortable and lightweight
June 09, 2011
These are so comfortable and lightweight...hardly feels like you are wearing anything. Wicks moisture nicely. These and the active briefs are my new underwear of choice. As always, Patagonia has another good product.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
Love Patagonia's Barely Hipster
March 05, 2011
I didn't pack enough you know what for vacation and found these at a store. I loved them so much I bought more from altrec.com. They are very comfortable and great for working out.
i almost forgot...
January 28, 2011
so, these basically make me think "i almost forgot." they literally are the best thing since i started purchasing patagonia underwear a few years ago. i have always loved the patagonia active hipster and decided to try these and love them. i may not even go back to the regular version cause i like these so much. they are very thin and very comfortable to the point that i forget i am wearing them. please try for yourself.Pros: Great design, Performance
September 18, 2012
Completely worth the money. So comfortable and they last forever. The fit seems right on as well. I've worn these for years and will continue to buy them.Pros: Lasts forever, Performance
June 18, 2010
Just came back from two very hot and humid days backpacking. First time wearing these and they were great! Couldn't even tell I was wearing anything. No creeping, no binding, and very quick to dry. I highly recommend.
nice fit, nice feeling
January 16, 2011
Sports underwear per se is not the most sexy thing in the world, but this hipster is a pretty good combination of comfort and look. I like the optic and the fact that there are no tags but instead washing instructions printed inside. The material is very light and soft, the fit very comfortable. I bought three different Patagonia undies, this one, the boy's shorts and the bikini style. I'd say this one is the best looking though I think prefer the bikini style for more extreme activities. I just got these but already used the for some hiking and running, performance so far great. As for size: I'm 5'4'', 100lbs, normal curves. XS fits fine but next time I would opt for a S for the sake of better butt coverage. Can't say much about quality and durability yet but will hope for the best.Pros: Performance, Ease of use
Good fit, no lines, they stay put
January 17, 2012
At about $20 a pair, these undies are not cheap, but they are worth the money if you are looking for no-nonsense (plain), reliable (will not bunch or ride up) that wash easily and dry fast. I have a couple of pairs that are over a year old and they are wearing well, that is, the seams are intact and they are holding their shape well. I don't know if they will compare to my cotton undies (Jockey for Women) for wear, but the cotton undies get baggy as they get older.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

I have looked for underwear that didn't ride up and was comfortable for race walking and biking and finally I have found it! Love this underwear and plan to buy more!!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use
Wife loves them.
September 04, 2010
Purchased for my wife for extended hiking. She loves them and says they are very comfortable. Style is pretty sexy, too.
Love, love love these
January 29, 2012
I love these Patagonia hipsters. I automatically bought more because they fit so well. They don't bunch up, they don't move, and they don't show in the back. I am a slim 5'7" and 125 lbs. I bought the smalls and as you can read, am very happy! On sale, they are an awesome deal!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value, i don't know about washing yet., comfy, on sale!
Light, easy washing, great for travel.
May 27, 2011
I purchased these for travel, glad I did. They wash and dry quickly. Very airy and light yet covers it all and does not ride up. So light you could pack 5 pair and hardly notice they are in your bag...but you do need that many pairs because they wash so well. I plan on working more pairs into my regular wardrobe, it is worth the comfort. I purchased the the hipsters....the bikinis seem a bit flow for me. The small is true to size, good stretch and give, good leg openings.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Perfect for active endeavors!
August 08, 2010
I bought three pair for my upcoming trip around the world. I have been hiking and climbing in them nonstop --- totally wicks away, stays in place. Love them. Buying three more for a total of 6 pairs for my trip. Thank you Patagonia for the best gear.
Even better than the active hipster
April 22, 2012
I've been wearing patagonia's active hipster for a few years now and while I love them and bring them on all my trips, sometimes they tend to ride up. I got these in my usual size (xs) and found that they actually seemed to provide a bit more coverage and didn't ride up. I'll be ordering more.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use
comfortable, dries quickly
April 21, 2011
High quality, comfortable, doesn't ride or bunch up, dries quickly. After several washes, still looks brand new! I found that with snug or very drapey fabrics, the leg seams do show, but not under normal athletic-weight clothing. Very happy with this purchase.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use
Great fit and feel
February 01, 2012
Love these!! Great fit and great feel. Would buy again! Great under workout clothes. Good quality and design. Cost is high but worth it in the long run.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Cute and practical
June 07, 2010
Because they are seamless, these are extremely comfortable and do not stretch out of shape. They are well worth the somewhat higher price. I hope you will continue to carry these, and hope Patagonia will decide to make a lot more colors.
April 03, 2011
Just got these but love them! The fit is great and love the feel of the material. Got the smoke color and think they will be good to wear under any color pant or short.Pros: Great design
July 13, 2010
The Dusty Taupe color is a great neutral to wear under white pants/shorts. These are lighter and thinner than my Patagonia active hipsters yet they're just as comfy and breathable. Love to wear these under work clothes to avoid any panty lines
sizing is generous
December 15, 2011
always love patagonia underwear - however this style seems to fit a little bigger. i am a size 10 in pants and the large hipster is too big. a medium would be better.Pros: Great design
June 26, 2011
Love these quick drying, light weight underwear that provide all day comfort. The Small fits perfectly (my pant size is a 0-2). The Barely Hipsters provide greater coverage than the Barely Bikinis for those looking for a bit of a higher rise.Pros: Performance, comfort
Finally! Thanks, Patagonia!
March 31, 2010
The most comfortable underwear in my drawer! Super lightweight and they stay in place nicely. No panty lines! I've already ordered multiple pairs! Like the previous reviewer, I just wish they had a more fun selection of colors.
