Pure higgsinos are among the simplest and best-motivated candidates for a weakly-interacting thermal relic. However they are rather elusive, evading easy constraint by experiment due to their weak interactions with ordinary matter and small inter-state splittings. I will review the current experimental constraints on pure higgsinos, and present ways in which we can improve the sensitivity to such compressed weak states at current and future hadron colliders.
