Revolutionary removable underwear for people who can't do knots would be more accurate description. For persons gifted with opposable thumbs an alternative has been on the market for a very long time ;-)

Agreed - but much more importantly for the experts on UKC what is the most appropriate knot for this critical application.

I suggest double fisherman's.

In reply to UKC Articles:

I need to know more. But i don't know why :0)

I can see how they will be easy to get off but how do you easily get a pair back on ? You will have to shove your hands down your pants and feed the material through to the back end and then shove your hands down the back of your pants to pull it through. A bit like trying to feed a sling through an awkward thread.

I would prefer to be caught in the act of changing my thunderpants than be caught with a hand down the front and back of my pants crouching down and gurning.

Pop and go, if we don't get it please explain ?

Ha ha ! I was wondering how long it would take someone to pick up on that. It wasn't done on purpose but when i re-read it i saw it and thought it was a contender for punnage.
In reply to UKC Articles: I think I get it if you are say a shy woman sharing in a mixed bunkhouse needs to change - this could be an option to help avoid quedge shots.

I think this is actually practical for some women.

Simple, clip the new pair to the old pair & as you remove one you are installing the other.

Oddly thats not how the sellers are saying to do it.
In reply to biscuit: Nothing, but there is much more security with the pop and go knickers.

Bon effort for the peeps that have brought these to market. I wish them every success.

But surely there is an easier solution. Try a google image search for "tie sided thong" if you don't believe me, they even do them for men.*

Burberry have been making waterproof coats for a long time.

Why did North Face, Berghaus etc bother as a product existed already?

Semi-serious suggestion: have you thought about marketing them to bondage enthusiasts? I imagine nice knickers that can be taken off someone after they're all tied up could turn out to be quite popular.

Fair point. Towel option not withstanding.

But it does seem a bit like life imitating Zoolander:

They look like the level of fumbling required would be... somewhat awkward though, particularly in 'public'. I can see where you're coming from, but i was in the situation you described at the weekend and just got changed in the loo - much easier.

Absolutely bang on; im female and I dont get the point in these... I feel like im missing something... Isnt this what panty liners are for?
(Sorry to destroy the magic, guys.)
freerangecat - on 18 Oct 2012
In reply to Jamming Dodger:

I just had a thought, after writing my last post and going for a shower, that if you'd just had a shower ir been swimming then they might be handy, particularly with wet grotty feet from campsite showers, but that's the only time I would consider using them, and I wouldnt be putting them on after my trousers.
Jamming Dodger on 18 Oct 2012
In reply to freerangecat: How would that be different from wearing normal knickers?
freerangecat - on 18 Oct 2012
In reply to Jamming Dodger:

Just slightly easier/more pleasant than putting wet possibly muddy feet through the holes of normal undies.I've already put 2 or 3 posts on here saying tthat I dpn't see the point of these, and I still don't, it just occured to me that they could potentially have a slight benefit in that situation! I felt slightly bad for slating them so much too...

•Long-haul flights - Id not site on a flight and stuff my hands down my trousers.
•Long bus and train journeys- see above

•Camping- where youd probably want to change your muddy pants before getting in a tent anyway.
•Muddy Festivals- see above
•After sports- same trousers but clean knickers? Really?
•Dance classes- see above
•Gym- ever had deja vu?
•Heading straight from the office to a night out- where most people would change their outfit anyway.
•Sandy Beaches (and sandy feet!)- See point 1 and 2

Yes, quite! If I got caught in the middle of one of the club hut dormitories fumbling around with my hands down my trousers, the mickey-taking would never stop!
(As opposed to being spotted with my trousers off, which is fairly normal in that normal sleeping attire is t-shirt and keks.)
freerangecat - on 18 Oct 2012
In reply to Wingnut:

Exactly!

I'm going to enter this now though, as it would be interesting to win them and see if they were actually any use, given how sceptical we are (I wonder if they want a review! :-) )

In reply to Jamming Dodger: Panty liners do half the job of Pop&Go Knickers. You can only change "part" of the knicker so if you have been trekking for hours and you feel sweaty, changing panty liner won't help.

Also panty liners aren't comfy and aren't hygienic (especially if you spend long hours outdoor, exercising...etc...).

In reply to PopandGoKnickers: Aren't hygeinic? they are designed to eb hygeinic? :-) I think the product looks interesting but the suggestion they are more hygeinic is baffling.
PopandGoKnickers on 23 Oct 2012 - 188-221-244-155.zone12.bethere.co.uk
In reply to Jamming Dodger:
The idea is more to change in a toilet cubicle, not in public. In moving transport, without Pop&Go Knickers, you would have to get fully undressed, dropping trousers on dirty floors and trying to balance, standing on your shoes to avoid stepping on the floor. Awkward. Especially if it's hot (India...) and maybe there is no lock on the cubicle...

These are common situations when travelling/backpacking....
PopandGoKnickers on 23 Oct 2012 - 188-221-244-155.zone12.bethere.co.uk
In reply to puppythedog: unhygienic is not the correct word indeed. Frequent use of panty liners isn't advised though, increases risk of infections...

"Wearing tight-fitting clothing, such as tights, or using panty-liners, may increase your risk of developing thrush. However, the evidence to support this is still uncertain."
http://www.channel4embarrassingillnesses.com/men-in-white-coats/thrush/causes/

+ if the underwear is sweaty (exercising...) then changing the panty liner won't turn the knickers fully dry, only part of it

;)
Tall Clare - on 23 Oct 2012
In reply to PopandGoKnickers:

If you're that sweaty from exercise then surely whatever you've worn over the knickers, and your top half, will also be sweaty.

They do seem like an intriguing concept but I think they'd be more usefully targeted at people who struggle to put on normal underwear, for instance people who've broken legs, have mobility issues that require use of a wheelchair, etc.
Jamming Dodger on 28 Oct 2012
In reply to PopandGoKnickers: Im really sorry to keep p*ssing on your parade but im still not convinced. Panty liners are designed (as mentioned) to be hygienic and be changed during the day. To suggest they cause thrush based loosely on insubstantiated evidence as a selling point for knickers is just silly.
I personally wouldnt want to be toting around dirty knickers in my handbag (even if they do come in a nice little purse). The very idea of this is... grim.
In addition, cotton knickers are more likely to cause thrush if used for exercise cause they dont wick moisture and therefore chafe. Just saying...
Good luck with your sales though.
martinph78 on 28 Oct 2012
In reply to UKC Articles: Having travelled with females in India and Peru I was amazed how often they felt the need to change their underwear. I can definiately see how these would be helpful for them. Trying to change on sleeper trains etc is a nighmare for a woman.

Whilst I don't see all of the suggested uses as practical I do think that they will have their uses for sure.

Makes me glad I'm a guy though :)

Precisely; why is she putting them in her chalk bag?
And stages 1, 2, 4 and 5 don't exactly seeem to be preserving her modesty. Anyone doing that in public could pull quite a crowd.

Heading straight from the office to a night out

I once walked into the bathroom in our office to find one of the guys sitting in the sink washing his balls before a night out with his new girlfriend. If a male version of these are out there I'll fill his draw to make sure I never see that again.

peas65 - on 29 Oct 2012
In reply to UKC Articles:

I am not convinced either, being female and travelling quite a bit. Surely you just get changed when in a suitable situation and otherwise wait till the next suitable situation to change again. Even on a 26hr bus ride i have never felt the need for this product. At £17.99 it is extremely expensive and i can imagine that the attachment is uncomfortable when seated.

If you want to send me some i will trial them and then maybe i will see the virtue of them. Otherwise i could buy 20 pairs of pants for the same amount of money.

Design some ladies winter trousers for climbing with a inconspicuous drop seat and then i really will be interested.

Good luck though i think you may need it.

Surely if you're in that much of a state that underwear must be changed immediately, then an undercarriage wash is also required? In which case you're not really solving the problem by simply changing your undies.

So rather than enter the competition to win a pair and if you don't then nothing is lost you suggest they send you a pack of them instead?
