i ordered a year or so ago & the newer newer ones are not the same... material is different & size is also different.... Really like the original style....full cut is not full cut...

I bought five pair on sale. When I received them, I liked them so much I bought another five pair in the next size larger, just in case. I have never in my life worn such comfortable underwear. For a woman who has never met any underwear she likes, that's a 10-star compliment. They fit close to the body, but there's no clinging or binding. They've taken quite a few beatings in hotel laundries, and being literally scrubbed on a rock, and they still look like new after seven months. I will never wear anything else. They're worth every penny! I may try the Magellan's Everywear, but these will be really hard to top.

I thought when I ordered these panties that they were the same ones ordered a few years ago. Alas, they are not, first, they have ExOfficio on the elastic, there is a tag, not an imprint. These have more nylonm, the original had none. What happened to the original Magellan Full Cut Briefs?

I bought several pairs of these briefs and really like the way they feel - they don't bunch or ride up. I use them primarily when I travel, since they don't take up a lot of room in the suitcase. However, I was disappointed that the elastic on several of the pairs came away from the material. The first two pairs had just been washed and began to fall apart right away. Magellan's was quick about replacing them with new pairs. Now, I have noticed that the material on a couple of other pairs is starting to do the same. As these are rather expensive items, I had hoped that they would have been more lasting.

The only thing I care about is whether they keep ME dry -- and they do. Very comfortable fit, especially around the legs. They sit just a teensy bit low at the waistline, so I ordered another 5 pair in the next size up. Goodbye forever, cotton underwear!

While the fit of these underpants is great they did not perform for the reason I bought them which was to dry quickly. It took a day and a half for them to dry which was quite disappointing as I did not bring along a lot of undies. I would not recommend these for travel if you only had one night in places.

This past Christmas, I found that I had gone on a 3-week vacation without packing any underwear at all. I took a deep breath, and calmly ordered TEN new pair of Ex-Officio's! My own present to myself. Magellan's is the only store that had them in stock: Thank you! Now, what has happened to the great camisole, my other life's companion?

While the fabric is the same as the first several I ordered, the sizing is smaller. Very disaponted that a these are not as comfortable. I'm still wearing the first ones I had ordered last year and there is no comparison with the sizing.

They are very comfortable, wash and dry great, whisk away moisture and odor! I am looking forward to taking them on a16 day vacation.

the fabric feels good and is cool, but the brief is skimpy and does not cover my wife's butt, making it uncomfortable.

I've been buying Ex Officio underwear for years and they continue to be the best-wearing underwear EVER. They are quick to wash and fast to dry. If you're traveling, they should be the number one item in your suitcase.

I ordered these briefs because they are advertised as " full cut briefs ". I found the rise to be very short and I'm 5.5 in height with a regular torso. I loved the material. I think I would love them if only they didn't fit me like a low rise brief. I had to return them.

Bought two of these to pack for my upcoming trip. It happened to be well over 90 degrees and very humid the day I tried one. I was cool and comfortable all day. After washing them they were dry in four hours. Great product.

These underwear are terrific: light weight, comfortable, fast-drying. They are wonderful for traveling, drying overnight so you need only pack two or three pairs. I have ordered both the regular waistband and the lacy style, but I prefer the regular even though they are not as "pretty". The elastic on the lacy style ripped after several wearings.

These are nice but don't dry as quickly as stated. I cannot help but think that ordinary nylon panties would do as well at a lower pricwe.

Fit fine, feel comfortable.

I love Ex Officio underwear. I just replaced my good old standard travel and comfort wear pairs bought in 1999 because they are wearing out. So, I know they are durable. I always choose them for comfort, for the gym and for travel. They breathe well and dry quickly when it is hot.

This is comfortable for 8 - 24 hours of continuous travel in planes and airports. These briefs are not constricting, and they breath, especially, when sitting in the tight coach seats for 14 hours of airports and planes on a trip to Fairbanks, Alaska from Florida.

true to size; holding up well (4 wks) in washer; I do not put in dryer; dry quickly in hot, damp Florida weather

Terrific, go for these instead of the throw-away kind. These even dry when washed out at night in humid conditions. As long as you can hang them up; they'll dry. And they're comfortable all day. I'll take three pr. of these on any vacation, no matter how long I'll be gone.

Yes, these dry overnight. They are supremely comfortable. Wonderful in every way except one: if you are sensitive to scented feminine products or colored or scented toilet tissue, try these out BEFORE you leave for the trip. The antimicrobial "finish" may not work well for you. I spent a fairly miserable two week vacation wondering what in the world? I know all the triggers to avoid--and did so during travel. When I returned home, the travel underwear went into storage and so did my discomfort. 'Nuff said.

Perfect fit; dry in no time at all. And I know this brand is durable as my last Ex Officios lasted six years.

Service was super and product is great for traveling.

It's very difficult to find underwear that fits perfectly, are comfortable and don't roll. These are wonderful. They are so comfortable, light, they stay put and wash well. I love them so much I bought 15 pair. They come individually wrapped in a drawstring mesh bag so packing them is easy and neat. Great product, I highly recommend you try them.

I have several pair and love them for travel. They wash easily and dry overnight. We travel for a least a month at a time and 5 pair is plenty. Less would be fine but I prefer to do less laundry! I plan to buy more each time they are sale to have as everyday wear.

I went on a fast trip last week and forgot my underwear! My husband put 2 pair in a envelope and I got them 3 days later. Well, they were fabulous! I washed them out every night and they were dry in a few hours. Also they were absorbant and comfortable. I have colitas so I know how safe you will feel with these underwear. Thank You !

Fit great. Wash and dry nicely for travel. I like these so well I use them all the time now. When I called Magellan's with a size problem they quickly sent what I needed. Very good customer service. No problem with pads sticking to fabric.
(Posted on 3/14/11)
Undies were very comfy and dried easily overnight in the hotel. Even more comfy than the previous undies I bought approximately 10 years ago from Magellan's

I have had these for some time and wear them every day. The fit is great and they are comfortable. My only concern is that I need to use adhesive pads which do not adhere that well because of the nature of the fabric.

My granddaughter calls these granny panties. They are very comfortable and travel well. Just returned from a 7 day trip. Only took 4 pairs panties. Hand washed 2 nights and they dried as promised in 3 to 4 hours. They also wicked away moisture as promised. Would recommend to everyone. My husband has the men's version.

great not only for travel but for everyday wear. I have replaced my daily briefs with ex officio
(Posted on 10/10/10)
Bought these for travel but use for everyday wear. They're cooler and wick moisture better than other nylon or cotton briefs. I took three pair on a trip; wore one and washed one daily and had an extra pair in case I needed them. They wash and dry very quickly. I'd like to have more!

I was surprised to find a pair of briefs online that would fit and be just what the y are advertised to be, i ordered 3 pair and that is all i will take on my 3 week trip to Israel and i am going to order more when i return to wear daily, they are great, in fact i have bought several travel things also to use and i have not found one thing that i could live without......very impressed with magellan, thankyou for your great assortment and quality things, and quick shipping.
(Posted on 9/23/10)
These are awesome and worth the crazy high cost for panties. I would recommend ordering up a size as they run a bit small. Also, the black pairs shrank more than the nude. I mean like 2 inches more. Weird, right? Anyway, order up and you won't have worry.

Nice feel and fit, but panty liners don't adhere to this material.
(Posted on 9/23/10)
Great for extended trips----light weight, quick wash & dry. No fuss no muss.
(Posted on 9/23/10)
These briefs are wonderful to take on trips because they always dry overnight when washed in the sink, but I wear them everyday as they breathe and are very comfortable. They also wear a very long time, I have some I purchased at least 5 years ago and they are still in great shape.
(Posted on 9/23/10)
Several friends have recommended these. I didn't think I would like them - more of a cotton kind of woman. I love these and will be ordering more. The material feels so great! And they will take up less room in my suitcase as well as they will dry faster! I'm a believer!
(Posted on 9/22/10)
I have worn this brand before, but this version has a more comfortable elastic at the waist and the material seems lighter. This is not just for travel, it is for daily wear!
(Posted on 8/31/10)
I ordered one pair to try and have just ordered 3 more. These are very comfy, cooler on hot days, and they really do stay fresher. They have become a travel necessity.
(Posted on 8/23/10)
These have become my favorite undies. They washed great and were incredibly comfortable in a very, very hot Rome in July. I will purchase more for everyday use Stateside.
(Posted on 8/4/10)
I prefer these for strenuous out door activities like hiking, back packing, cross country skiing. They wick well and keep one cool. They are really effective when it's hot out side. These are great for travel as well.
(Posted on 7/23/10)
Comfortable; dry quickly after washing. Love them!
(Posted on 7/15/10)
Travel undies that are very comfortable to wear and oh so easy to wash in the evening and ready to wear again in the morning. They breathe and wick away moisture so stay cool against the skin. I was so impressed with the quality I ordered three colours so have all clothing issues covered.
