LADIES backpacking clothing

#1

Post by ADVStrom14 » Sun Sep 18, 2016 11:14 am

Disclaimer: This thread is going to be a thread about pants and underwear. Men, you've been warned.

Ladies - I need some hiking pants and hiking underwear. My stipulations are:
Pants:
-No cotton
-Sturdy enough to wear a belt and carry a knife and probably a pistol
-Water resistant
-Not opposed to skirts and/or kilts
-Since it's getting to be fall I would like to get something that is suitable for cooler weather
-Budget friendly
-And (I know this sounds vain but...) doesn't look like high waters. I cannot figure out why all the women's pants I've looked at look like high water pants.

Underwear:
-No cotton
-Nothing girly that's a (literal) pain in the rear end
-I would like to have some boy shorts or like men's long briefs
-At the very least briefs
-Budget friendly

Thanks in advance.

Ex officio makes great Underwear. I like the Men's Boxer Brief and my wife likes Women's sports mesh bikini brief . I usually buy them on massdrop when i can get 3 pairs for around $25. I started wearing them for hiking but love them so much I bought tons more and wear them every day.

My wife wears icebreaker underwear and generally Magellan/Columbia capris or the convertible pants. She has a few hiking skirts as well, for when we do long hikes. Hope that helps maybe

Haven't checked in for quite a while. ExOfficio GivenGo underwear ROCKS. It really does dry fast, as is advertised, and is very light. I have some of the lacy topped ones. Yes, that sounds "girlie," but I find they lie really flat, so no panty lines or rubbing under other clothing and belts. You will find some of this line as boy shorts and mesh briefs, as well as thongs." I don't see the last ones as backpacking underwear, but they do exist. Hubby likes his GivenGo men's undershorts and T-shirts. Stock up if you can find a sale at Sierra Trading Post, ExOfficio's site, or other retailers. I get better prices at these sales than I see at MassDrop. I also like their pants and shorts, some of which are very light. Right now, a favorite is Columbia's line of pants and capris with a nylon/elastane blend, designated Omni-shield and Omni-shade. they have just a little stretch and breathe amazingly well. I liked my first pair so well that I searched out others in different colors and styles, on sale, of course.

Thanks for the info. I found some pants that I really like so I went back and bought a couple pairs off amazon when they went on sale. I got the prAna Halle in lined and unlined. They are water resistant and when do get wet they dry quickly. They also seem to wash well as I got some mud and tree junk on them cutting firewood after the hurricane and it washed completely out.

I'm still looking for same "drawers" though so I appreciate the info. I'm going to try out some of the exofficio's since that seems to be highly recommended.

^This.

My wife won't buy anything else now.

Hanes came out with a sport mesh line for ladies but they aren't even close to the comfort (according to my wife) and durability of exofficio.

Since we're talking about our wives underwear,...


here's another vote for the Exofficio. She likes her's and I like mine.

What brand did you end up selecting? Did it meet all your criteria? (I'm curious as I'm searching for a good pair)
