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 5 out of 5 by from my go to underwear Do not hesitate on buying these. They are comfortable, stay in place, and they last forever! Even after wearing them routinely for a couple years, they still look as nice as they did when I first got them. I literally can't say enough good things about these. Adios wedgies!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Miss the OLD Hipster Design - Bring it back! I've bought Patagonia underwear for over a decade. I didn't realize the old hipster design had been replaced with a thin waistband. The old wide band hipster was the best underwear I've ever had! This new pair is a disappointment in both design and quality. Every year the fabric of Patagonia gets thinner and the rear is practically sheer now it's SO thin. I recognize the recycle program, but the Patagonia underwear from 10 years back were virtually forever lasting AND the fabric was tough -- they could even work as a spontaneous bikini bottom they were so well made.... BUT NOT the new Patagonia underwear. They are still comfortable, just not the amazing wide band old hipster design. That I miss, and the cheap quality makes me realize, I don't have to have the Patagonia underwear because they just aren't what they used to be.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Go back to the old design!!! I have probably a dozen pairs of these from at least 10-12 years ago and all are in pristine condition even though I mostly only wear these underwear. All of the newer pairs I have purchased in the past few years are failing, the waistband is coming un- sewn and the fabric is thinner. The old ones were amazing, listen to the reviews and go back to the old fabric and design, please!!! More plain and neutral colors would be great too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best underwear ever ruined by a tag I have searched high and low for the perfect underwear, and I finally found it! Fits great, STAYS PUT, wicks moisture/sweat. One problem...what's with the stupid sewn-in tag? Who does that, Patagonia?? Put on your readers and pick out the thread, or it will irritate you to death!

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.
