Why is moisture-wicking important in hiking underwear?
Moisture-wicking underwear is beneficial for hikers for many reasons. For starters, moisture-wicking underwear can help keep you dry down there. Additionally it can reduce irritation or friction that can lead to chafing. Our leakproof underwear can do all of this and more, as it’s designed to fight odor and protect from all kinds of leaks too. Featuring our patented Leak-Loc® technology, our underwear has multiple layers that draw in moisture and help lock in leaks. While our underwear is ideal for hiking, it can be worn for period protection, postpartum protection, workout protection, bladder leak protection, and more, or perhaps some combination of the above. That’s right, gone are the days of sitting out of your favorite hike or a new adventure because you’re on your period. Our period underwear can be worn as a backup or alternative to single-use menstrual products, depending on the absorbency level. All of our leakproof underwear product descriptions feature an absorbency level which will help you find your flow and get to hiking with adequate protection.
