My Patagonia bottoms get stretched out with the COVID 19 and now that we can hike and bike again they are falling off my butt. When I looked for replacement they all seem to be missing a necessary orifice. What gives, is this some plot?

Maybe you're putting them on backwards?

These are my current favorite hiking underwear, Marmot Performance Boxer-Briefs. It is actually easy to get the snake out of his lair and back again with these, if you know what I mean. Very comfortable and I have no complaints.

I don't know about underwear with fly but I fly with underwear.
Or I take a plane.
(my IceBreaker longs do have a fly. Not sure if they still sell them like that now...)

I have a pair of Smartwool long underwear that have a fly. I have no idea if the current itteration of then still have the fly.

EDIT: Also just noticed that my 32 Degree light weight long unders have a fly as well. I get those at Costco whenever they have them. Probably will show up soon as Fall approaches.

Just noticed tonight that the 32* Heat tops and bottoms were at Costco again. I think the price was $14.99 for a two pack.

Ya'll don't just pull it out over the top? That was a game-changing technique I learned in my teens… to each their own though.

Interesting. I just was thinking how the new underwear I purchased do not have a fly and it seemed strange. But then I realized I never use it anyway.

By the way, it's going to be hard to find the style of long johns that had the backdoor that you could unbutton as well.

While tromping around on local trails today, I was just wondering why they don't have women's pants that could be unzipped far enough for more discreet relief stops. I was a little afraid to google it, but actually got a link straight to some pants designed for just that! It has a silly video, too, in case you need a laugh.

It was pure luck I stumbled on this relevant post today, while responding to Google's notification that I needed to change my nwhikers password.

I saw this she pee pants ad few weeks ago.

Seems like a good idea until you realize your underwear doesn't have that same split.

I saw that they do address that somewhere; perhaps in the video (I didn't watch it again, so not sure).

You have to stretch one of the leg holes of your underwear aside.

Because I usually wait until it's too late to do anything efficiently and gracefully, I can see myself peeing on the leghole-pulling hand; or peeing on my underwear. Or on the hiking pants because of the extra fumbling required.

The cost of the SheFly pants is beyond my means anyway ($168), and the fit seems designed to be super tight. I wish the website had more information on why these pants are superior (if) beyond just that they have an extra zipper.

Maybe I'll talk to a seamstress.

P.S. I'll bet the guys never guessed where the original post would go.
