Hike in tropical areas? You’ll need it!
November 11, 2011

Bought these underwear for long hikes in tropical areas. I usually carry a large and heavy backpack and one gets soaked with sweat very quickly in such conditions. These underwear are outstanding: comfortable, durable, and sweat evaporates quickly. Not a minor thing when you’re out there for many hours.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Perfect Backcountry Companion
June 28, 2011

The Capilene 2 Boxer Briefs are a great Backcountry Companion. When being active outdoors it is very helpful to have a piece of gear and base layer that can adapt to the different types and changes in climate. These Boxer Briefs are a great high activity companion on the trail or a friend just sitting by the campfire. They are very similar to the other Capilene 2 products and provide the warmth and necessity of a base layer but also the breathability and adaptability of light-ware. When planning an expedition underwear is an essential base layer and this product has the adaptability and build quality that is necessary for many outdoor activities.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, adaptability, Cons: Cost

great briefs!
June 12, 2011

These briefs are awesome! I purchased them for 2 weeks of climbing in the alaska range, and they were extremely breathable yet also kept me very warm...almost as if they had a built in climate control that adjusted flawlessly! I have since purchased a few more pairs, as they are by far the most comfortable briefs I have owned for outdoor purposes. I am a size 33 waste and a medium fit perfectly.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value

no title for an underwear review

I have used ex-officio boxer-briefs all of the time. The capilene is just as good, a little heavier but just as comfortable. It washes well, and dries quickly.

Warm and Look Great
January 31, 2012

I like the look of these and they are very warm. They are much better than the Capilene 1 boxer briefs as there is no odor. I like the fabric also. The fabric is kind of like a cotton mesh but feels good. Also they are stretch and fit great. They can bunch up a bit in bed though.

Pros: Great design, warm, look great, comfortable
