Kleen Kanteen just released their line of colored water bottles. These bottles are the same great design and still made of stainless steel as the original bottles. They are coated with a durable enamel in a variety of color choices.

Our order for Kolor bottles has been placed, and we expect them to arrive in the middle of August. Contact Rachel to be placed on a no-obligation waiting list for these great bottles!

We expect the Kleen Kanteen stainless bottles (plain) to be available bu July 1. We have a large waiting list already for these bottles, but you can still email Rachel now to be added. We’ll be selling these on a first-come/first-serve basis. We’re really excited about this product line as it will give customers another BPA free water bottle choice.

Hi, I’m Rachel and I love wool underwear. There, I said it. This review has been long in the making mostly because I have had to overcome my fear of writing about “unmentionables”. But the time has come because Ibex merino wool underwear are too fantastic to keep covered any longer.

Over a decade ago I purchase my first pair of Smartwool merino wool socks, my first forray into wool underthings. They felt so soft, cushioned perfectly, and never allowed a blister on my feet. Slowly over the years I acquired more pairs so that now I never wear cotton. Remarkably I have only worn through one pair of these socks.

When it came time to decide which items of Ibex merino wool clothing to test for Baying Hound, I was intrigued by wool underwear. I tried on a pair and my feelings resembled those after my first experience with smartwool socks: I never want to wear cotton again. Wool does the same thing for my bottom that it does for my feet: it breathes, never rubs or irritates and stays comfy even when wet.

Ibex briefs and thongs have a comfortably snug waistband of superfine merino wool. Shaping and stretch is provided by specially designed knit patterns so that only a single flat-stiched seam is found toward the back of the crotch. There are no tags to irritate the skin. These features combine to make a pair of underwear that doesn’t bunch or sag, staying put exactly where you want them. The measurements in the Ibex size chart are true to fit.

The material is an exclusive 17.5 Merino Wool blend of 85% Wool/10%Nylon/5% Spandex. The predominating wool draws moisture away from the skin so that even during vigorous hiking there’s no buildup of sweat. On a recent trip to the New England coast, I hand washed my briefs and hung them to dry. In less than two hours they were ready to wear again. Even if you don’t have time to wash, merino wool has antibacterial properties that will keep body odor at bay.

Most people are attracted to wool underwear for the performance specifications. Ibex goes the next step further by ensuring the design is eye catching as well. The inside hem of the women’s styles reads: “I am sick of four walls and a ceiling, I have a need for the sky and business with the grass”. Both men’s and women’s are cut to be flattering in appearance and feature the Ibex logo on the outside hem.

They come in burnt red, black, and warm green regularly for $21.38. Men’s briefs are available for $26.60 in black and kelp brown.

These underwear are current specials available for only $19.99 and come with a free trial of Guyot Designs Microbites utensils through July 1!
