Travel underwear is one of the last items we think about when packing for an adventure, but we sure know about it when it’s not working for us. Hiking underwear is designed to be fast-drying and highly breathable underwear that doesn’t distract from the adventure. Whether you’re multiple days into the wild, or seeing a new city, we stock a range of styles in travel underwear from merino wool underwear that is naturally antibacterial and can be worn for days at a time, to ultra fast-drying hiking underwear that you can wash-and-wear so easily you’ll only need to take one pair! Our range of super soft tank singlets and v neck undershirts keep you cool in warm weather and warm in cool weather, and can be paired with a merino wool underwear base layer for cold climates.
Which travel underwear is best for hot climates?
When travelling in hot weather and humid climates we do not want to wear more layers than necessary, and we certainly don’t want those layers working against us in the heat. Travel underwear needs to be highly breathable underwear. All the travel underwear at Paddy Pallin is both breathable underwear and fast-drying, making daily wash-and-wear super simple while traveling. TheExOfficio range is the fastest drying option, though all the models we stock will dry overnight, includingIcebreakermerino wool underwear which is naturally antibacterial and can comfortably be worn for days at a time between washes. Merino differs from traditional wool and the Icebreaker underwear range is perfect for keeping you cool in warm climates.
Which travel underwear is best for cold climates?
The key point for travel underwear in cold climates is that it should be fast-drying, as damp material causes us to chill quickly in cool weather. Beyond fast drying, if you are looking to optimise the performance of your layering for cold weather, merino wool underwear works hand in hand with a merino base layer to promote continuous insulation while maintaining effortless breathability between each layer of merino wool, ensuring you stay toasty warm while not overheating. All our travel underwear options have been selected to be both fast-drying and breathable, ensuring choosing travel underwear is a breeze.
What is the best type of multi-day hiking underwear?
Our whole range of travel underwear has been selected especially to ensure you’re not wasting valuable packing space on a pair of travel underwear for each day of the week. Both our Icebreakermerino wool underwear and our ExOfficiotravel underwear range are great options when choosing hiking underwear. The ExOfficio range is ultra-fast drying allowing almost immediate wash-and-wear. This breathable underwear range comes in boxer and brief styles with multiple leg lengths and fly or flyless options, plus is treated for odor resistance, making these a great option for multi-day hiking. Our merino wool underwear range is also naturally well suited for multi-day hiking trips. The merino fabric is naturally antibacterial allowing many days of use between washes. And also come in brief and boxer styles. All our hiking underwear have flatlock seams and wide elastic waist bands for all-day comfort.
What styles of men’s thermal underwear are there?

Our Icebreaker Anatomica range in tanks and short sleeve v necks all come in black and white options for seamless use between travel and day to day business.
The best way to care for travel underwear while travelling?
Often when travelling there is limited access to laundry facilities and limited interest in such a mundane chore when we could be exploring a new city, or if we’ve hiked all day and getting dinner prepped and our feet up is more of a priority. That’s why the brands and models of travel underwear we select to offer are not going to distract from your experience. Merino underwear is naturally antibacterial so can easily be worn for multiple days, and are also fast-drying. While ourExOfficio range is so fast-drying you could wash them, ring them out, pop them on and they would be almost dry while you finish brushing your teeth. All our travel underwear options are cold water washable, and no special wash liquids are required.
