I noticed these are not 100 percent Merlino wool, can anyone compare them with the more expensive stuff that is 100 percent. Is it worth it to pay the extra?

I am using a pair of the c4e boxers now, and they are shorter in length than the first lite boxer and tend to ride up as I hike. Maybe it is just me because I have thick thighs, but I always have to pull them down on my legs. One size up may work better for me, but in the future I will probably be going with first lite's. I can definately go a few days wearing them without them stinking so in that regard they are good.

I wonder if they ride up because it is a 50-50 blend.

Mine don't ride up too bad when standing or walking, but sitting makes them ride. All in all I like them for the price and would probably buy again when needed.

I wear my core 4's more than my first lites. They dont feel quite as thick and aren't as long, which i like better.
They will wear out with some use, but for the price and comfort well worth it. I have only worn my first lite's a couple of times when its colder. Overkill for archery season for me.

I like the core 4 but I should have gotten the large instead of the med - waist fits fine but way too tight around the thighs (my fault for playing hockey all those years).

If I had to pick only 1 - it would be the FL because they just feel more comfortable and seem to wear better. Although I really wish they would make a shorter (normal) length legs. I appreciate the longer length when in the hills but it feels a bit goofy around town.
