Recycled Polyester

In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.

Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.

Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent comfort, let's see how they last ... I have worn and loved this style for many, many years -- it is the most comfortable of Patagonia's offering for backpacking, hiking, and daily use. No rolling, rubbing, or chafing, with any movement or temperature. That said, I am hoping that these last better than the pairs that I purchased 18 months ago -- I've replaced them due to unraveling stitches and thinning fabric. Hopefully, those were just a poorer quality anomaly. I have hipsters from 5+ years ago that truly look brand new: the fabric and stitching are pristine despite 100s and 100s of miles of wear in mountain across the world. Truly an excellent value. I also note that another pair with a print design (like the flower on this year's version) from a couple years ago is bleeding/fading (despite cold water wash, plant-based detergent). No problems like that on solid or striped designs. Sizing has always been consistent. I'm 5'4", 125 lbs, athletic, and a small is perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Updating previous review "Almost Perfect" I love almost everything about this underwear, but... Fabric, fit, and colors are great for exercising, travel, and everyday wear. I own at least a dozen pairs, purchased over the past 3 years or so, and the waistband seam has come unraveled on nearly all of them. In some cases, this happened after only a few wearings. This is really not acceptable, especially at this price point. With regret, I am switching to "Not Recommended" until this quality issue is addressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Now with two tags to scratch you! I've ordered and worn these underwear for years - they are just the best fitting, most comfortable underwear I've ever found. The latest batch I ordered came with a surprise, though - instead of the size/wash info being printed on the inside of the underwear, there were two tags attached with the information. Problem 1. These are UNDERWEAR! Having scratchy tags against one's nether regions is bad! Problem 2. One of the tags is paper and tore off ok (except for the one pair where tearing it off ripped the hem out), but the other tag is cloth and sewn on. And I can feel it. GRRRR. 3. Once you rip off the blessed tags, you don't have the size/wash info anymore. People, these things were perfect - why screw them up?!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not hold up I bought 5 of these a year ago. Everyone of them had the seams tear out. I have had other styles that have lasted 5 years. I am very disappointed as these are somewhat pricey.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring Back Wider Waistband, more supportive fabric These are totally my go-to underwear, I LOVE THEM! But...the latest redesign has significantly narrowed the waistband. Also the last few iterations of design had issues with the band ripping and "unfolding." I have been wearing these since they first came out and initially they were the PERFECT active underwear with no binding and so incredibly breathable. I wish the designers would re-visit the old designs and consider looking at the waistband dimensions and product fabric and maybe going back to something along those lines. One other thing...for YEARS I have wished that Patagonia would create these in some nice, neutral subtle colors. Fun colors are great, but when you love these as much as I's better to have white, nude, gray. Just a few that can be worn under lighter clothing. I tell you, if these changes were made these would be my ONLY underwear! I have read a lot around the web where women have the same idea I do: wanting them in light neutral colors and wishing for the wider band/more supportive fabric. Please consider my suggestions--look at what happens with these on the web. Women literally buy them out in no time, the black is the first to go because it's kind of a sensible color and the minute older models go on for sale on ebay they are snapped up immediately. If you market the neutrals as go-to underwear not just for active sports but your active life: work/school/etc. people will go for it! And going with more subtle or no graphic at all would be awesome. I'm only checking "no" on recommending the product to a friend in its current design state. Previous designs...I would certainly recommend. They are the best! (except for the 2015 model's tendency for the waistband stitching to fail). Thanks for listening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from functional enough for a 24 hour work shift I bought a couple of these for work. As a fire fighter, I work 24 hour shifts. I need a pair of undies that will stay dry, comfortable, functional and withstand all kinds of heavy activity! These have passed the test in not just the heat but also during workouts, on water calls and mountain calls. I am a size 8/medium, 5'9" and athletic. Size Medium in these fits great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super comfy but they fall apart! LOVE the way they fit and feel, but super bummed that they fall apart pretty much immediately. I've purchased several pairs, and they unravel/fray at the leg seams. If they didn't fall apart, they would be my favorite article of clothing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kind of a bummer I've been wearing these underwear for years. Even my pairs that I bought back in 2009 are still going strong. I hadn't purchased any for a couple of years, so I decided to make an order. I read the reviews but thought I would give it a try, considering that Patagonia makes great quality products, and they couldn't possibly be that bad. When I tried the new undies on, I was definitely disappointed. What happened to the roomy, super flattering fit in the hips, with the extra wide waist band? I don't have a lot of fat on my body, but these undies highlighted pretty much all of it. Thank God we have these things called pants so that no one has to see what's underneath. Previous iterations of these underwear had given me extremely high expectations, and these were not up to par. With that said, this is still a solid pair of underwear, and I'll still wear them (Also, side note -- the tag issue mentioned in other reviews isn't a big deal. Super easy to remove). They fit okay, and they are still made out of the same great (albeit lighter and thinner) wicking material, so they are not a complete loss. Just not the first pair of undies I grab out of the drawer after laundry day. Patagonia, please let me know when you revert back to the old style -- I'll be first in line to buy every color!
