This is a review of EDZ merino wool briefs. They were brand new and untested before my February to April 2019, 1200 mile wild camping LEJOG and 3 Peaks walk. I had planned on wearing them when it was cold and relying on my trusty Rohan synthetic pants most of the time. But I managed to leave the Rohan pants in the car on day 5, when I left my family in Perranporth. I found myself with these as my only pants during the rest of the walk.
I had intended on buying some more pants but I am a bit fussy, so by the time I passed a Rohan store, some weeks later and a long way up the country, I had fallen for the EDZ briefs. I was able to wash them, wring them out and, if I had to, put them straight back on wet. Being merino wool they felt comfortable and warm within minutes of putting them on. I would forget they were wet and before I knew it they were dry.
I never wore the pants at night as I had leggings to sleep in, but I wore them continuously for 57 days. They never smelt bad, changed shape or become uncomfortable in anyway, even when wet.
The 100% merino wool content is good for natural climate control in hot and cold conditions. Being 200gsm they might be a bit warm in really hot weather, but they were perfect for this trip between February and April in the UK. Unbelievably, after walking over 1000 miles in them, they show no signs of wear and I will happily be using them on my next long trip.
The sizing and fit of the EDZ briefs is as you would expect. I find all EDZ clothing is on the average sizing, neither compression tight or over loose.
They’ll be suitable for any long distance hiking, cycling, running, climbing, motorcycling, sailing, travelling, horse riding trips or as everyday wear, especially if you’re unable to wash them regularly.
