Great looking but non-functional
October 22, 2011

I love the equivalent Patagonia boxers -- quick-drying, silk-like, good fit. But these have inadequate leg elastic. It's just too unsubstantial. I cannot imagine enjoying these in any active sport, as they offer inadequate support. I feel like an outfielder who hopes the camera is not on him when he adjusts. Sadly, CK, BVD even FOTL are superior in basic functionality, though those brands would not be good for traveling light or moisture wicking. Even designer-pricey CK underwear is not this expensive, though the idea is to carry just a few Capilene garments and wash them every night.

Pros: looks good, Cons: Bad design, Low performance
Comfort: 5 / 5

great active briefs

I bought this for my husband after a trip to Kauai where we hiked quite a bit. He's really noticed the difference wearing these playing sports in terms of wicking and comfort. In fact, he just asked me to order three more!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Great fitting
February 10, 2012

These are very comfortable with a great fit. They're very light, durable, and travel well. They're good for hiking or high endurance activities. I"ve been using Under Armour but these are much better.

Pros: Build quality, Performance
