Jim, I think a lot of people don't wear it because they prefer the shorts
with mesh briefs attached.  I wore coolmax (or whatever the fabric is)
underpants and carried a spare; same with bra.  FWIW, I really notice the
difference between the synthetic & cotton when hiking.  At home I wouldn't
wear anything but cotton, but not on the trail.

If I ever decide to really go ultralight I might leave the spare set at home,
but it only weighs 1.5 oz for the two items, which certainly isn't a factor
in my heavy pack!
