Boy Shorts That Are Perfect for the Outdoors

One of the newer Merino wool companies on the market is Ridge Merino, started by a husband-and-wife team in 2014 to provide premium wool products at a lower price by selling straight to the consumer.

 

The company has crafted products that range from base layers for your next outdoor adventure to clothing you can wear to a bar or restaurant or party with friends.

 

The women’s Ridge Merino boy shorts are a great addition to the small but growing line.
At just less than $25, they’re a great price point for a superior product crafted by a small company that shows attention to detail. The underwear feel great on your skin, breathe well, are naturally odor-resistant and wick moisture. That means they’re also quick-drying, an ideal property if you’re hoping for a great pair of underwear to wear on a long trip.

 

The only downside is these boy shorts tend to sit fairly high on the hips, so if you’re looking for low-rise underwear (i.e. a pair that won’t rise above your pants waist if you’re into low-slung pants), you’re better off buying elsewhere.

 

In addition to offering great products, the company gives 1 percent of every purchase to the environment through a partnership with 1% for the Planet, so you can feel even better about supporting a small business as well as an ethical one when you buy from Ridge Merino.

 

Ridge Merino also offers free shipping on orders more than $100.
