I used to use polyester underwear on backpack hunts, but am thinking about switching to a Merino wool blend such as the Ice Breaker Anatomica. Polyester served me well, but after 10 days or so in the field, they tend to stink regardless of changing them out every other day. According to my research, the lanolin in the wool is supposed to not allow the microbes and bacteria to adhere to its fibers. Has anyone used Merino wool blend undies or have other thoughts about this subject? The one downside I see of the brand I mentioned above is the price. They are about 35.00 a pair! Thanks!
