September 26, 2023

Best boxers ever made?!!

I am seriously in love with these boxers. No chafe, easily forgettable. Never have I ever had this good of an experience with other brands! Ive tried other Patagonia underwear and these seriously blow those out of the water. Worth every penny!

September 23, 2023

More colors and shades please!

Give us something different here.. hues, patterns. Please!

Hey Jay, thank you for the feedback. We typically change colors or add patterns seasonally, during our Fall/Winter or Spring/Summer releases. We recommend checking back around March when we start to release our Spring items.

Exceptional improvement over previous design: Better waistband,Great wicking ability ,6" inseam helps with fit/comfort.

September 4, 2023

Good Fit

Like these a lot. Would buy again but like the Essential 6" better because it has a fly

August 27, 2023

Comfortable but questionable design choices

Comfortable and light weight. Great for warm weather. Just do not understand why there is not a quick access front pocket for taking care of business. If this was an intentional design choice, the reason is lost on me. Would have been 5 stars otherwise.

Good brief mostly

These briefs are soft and comfortable. They are expensive, though, especially when you add in shipping (my REI no longer carries them.) My one complaint is that the stitch between the waist band and fabric is fragile. My left thumb is hooked from a climbing injury years ago, and if I run that thumb along the seam, it soon separates. Most people won... Read Moret have this issue.

Awesome Underwear

These are the best boxer briefs I've ever had. They are the base layer to my base layers in the winter, and the foundation layer for summer. Moisture management is fantastic, they fit correctly and are super comfortable. Dry super quick so if I'm wet wading or just go over my waders everything dries fast.

Perfect wool boxers

So I have gone thru MANY different boxers trying to find the perfect ones to keep me secure! I gotta say that these feel really nice against my skin. Not to give out too much information but I have a spinal cord injury, which means among many things that I have urinary incontinence and I "leak" sometimes. These boxers do an amazing job at...

Holes in 2 weeks.

The underwear was the most comfortable I have ever worn, but after 2 weeks the material was coming apart at the seams. Not from the sewing that held the material together but because the material has small holes in it and was not strong enough to hold the material to the seams. Then a hole started. I returned all three pairs in fear that it would h... Read Moreappen to the other ones. Thanks.

Quiver killer underwear

Best underwear I have found. Everyday, sports, travel, etc. Waist band is comfortable and fabric is stretchy, breathable, very light and comfy. They just stay put and you forget about them.

Good for high output

30-31 waist and small is right on. Needed something for long summer runs and recovery activities after. These are great. Lightweight but plenty of support, and didnt sweat during longer runs. Cant speak to longevity but if you care for them I bet they last. Hard to tell in pictures but the material almost reminds me a very light capilene Midweight ...

July 10, 2023

Not worth it

Bought 6 pair, one in each color. Got in the mail and washed Immediately then dried. Got out dryer and the Elastic waistband was stretched out hasn't been worn once. After a few wears in washes; 6 washes, the crotch started to tear, other brands for way less last way way way longer dont waste your money.

Hi Manny! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear how quickly the briefs have worn out. This isn't the quality we expect out of our clothing so we'd encourage you to [return](

July 1, 2023

Comfortable, caressing and cool

Worth the cost because of the excellent fit, breathability and comfort. These are awesome. They dont roll up or get icky. I wait for sales at REI or Patagonia to buy them and they last forever.

June 26, 2023

so good i bought 3 more pair

sender briefs have a great fit. airy mesh for breathability and good support. waist band has been durable. although they are pretty much new to me, i expect that they will last a long time. great product.

June 20, 2023

great product

i've been looking to upgrade my underwear game and i think that the Sender Brief is going to do the trick. quality waist band, breathable fabric and plenty of support. really great.

June 15, 2023

Comfortable, Durable, and Great for a Hike

I wore these during a 230 mile hike across Ohio on the Buckeye Trail. They were fantastic and I'm ordering a second pair.

May 18, 2023

Super Comfortable

Most comfortable underwear ever. No chaffing whatsoever. So much better than typical cotton underwear most people wear. My only complaint is that it has been hit or miss with durability. I have 9 pairs of these (6 of the previous version) and 2 of them failed in just a few months/outings. (1 new and 1 old.) I was able to return one of them. Both... Read More failed at the waistband and simply separated at the seam. The older version was thinner and developed a random hole in the fabric. So, not sure why some fail and others don't. I do like this version better that is all mesh, which is stronger. If they could figure out the stitching on the waistband they'd be good to go. Otherwise, I love these things. I will never go back to cotton underwear. IMO, the sizing is larger than usual. I normally wear a size Large, but wear a size Medium for these. I'm 6'1" and 220 lbs, so bigger than average...was surprised I needed the Medium. Guess I like them tighter than most, ha.

May 3, 2023

Great fitting design and material

Im 170 lbs and of medium build. The medium size is a better fit than the large. Fabric is wonderful: light, strong, smooth, and quick drying.

April 26, 2023

Comfortable for multi-day adventures, not the most durable

I took a fresh set of sender boxer briefs on a thru hike of the Colorado Trail. No chafing, ample support, and quick drying. Not having a fly isn't bad when backpacking, but a nuisance when donning a harness. I used them for 29 days straight on the CT, then a few times a week since at work, winter hikes, day hikes, and general travel. I'v... Read Moree had them since August 2022. They have now developed large enough holes in the rear that they aren't acceptable to wear any more. Comfortable and do the thing, but I've had other synthetic underwear last ~2 years of serious outdoor use. Only got about 8 months of regular use with these. Not bad, but a little delicate.

April 15, 2023

Super comfortable

These are among the most comfortable underwear I have ever worn. They strike a perfect balance between feeling barely there and providing great support. I agree with other reviewers who have expressed the wish that these be available in different colors or even patterns.

April 14, 2023

Junk undies

Just normal underwear. Not worth the price. They were uncomfortable definitely not recommended for running. Did a 6 mile run and couldn't wait to change out of them. The tag was super uncomfortable and removed it. The Patagonia guarantee does not apply to under layers either. Threw them away

Hi Shawn, we're sorry to hear these briefs didn't work for you, and that you've thrown them away. Actually, our warranty does apply to under layers as well.

Very comfortable

My husband really liked the boxers. He felt they were very comfortable and attractive.

April 2, 2023

Bum hole

These are the only underwear I buy and so I have a dozen pairs I rotate. I like them, but unfortunately they all develop a sheer bum which then turns into a hole. It has taken about 2 years for this to happen wearing once every couple of weeks -- maybe my standards are too high, but for a Patagonia product I'd hope they'd last longer.

Response from Patagonia
April 4, 2023

We're so sorry to hear these briefs haven't held up better for you! This would be considered a warranty issue, so you are welcome to [return]( them if you wish. Please let us know if we can be of further help, Jamie!

March 13, 2023

Love the briefs, really dislike the tag

These briefs are great. They are the only briefs I purchase these days. The only downside is the enormous product tag that is irritating to the skin. I cut the tags off but it's a delicate surgery because leaving just a little is still really abrasive.

March 10, 2023

Great everyday, comfortable.

Own several pair. Please Patagonia, a change of color would be nice, patterns even. Please consider. Thanks.

February 3, 2023

Super comfy

It fits, it's comfortable, and it's durable

January 22, 2023

Great for everyday use

Haven't had these long but they feel great so I already bought some more. Wish you guys were as committed to the American labor force as you are to the environment - people needs jobs in the USA too.

January 11, 2023

Been looking for these for a while!

Ive been trying to find a great boxer brief for while. These have been great and I definitely will be purchasing more.

January 9, 2023

Great product/wish it was 3 longer.

These are almost perfect, with length being the only exception - I much prefer a 9-inch inseam over 6-inch. That said, the fabric is breathable and soft, with good elastic in the waistband and good fit. A typically great product. Hopefully the designers will consider making longer options in the future.

January 2, 2023

horrible elastic waist band

I got 1 in each color, prior to wearing the new underwear I put them to wash. On the first wash before trying them on, the waist bands became uneven and stretched out. Ive had cheaper sports wear that never did this. After a couple months; maybe 3, the crouch began to rip. I love all my Patagonia gear except the underwear, its complete trash I will...

Hey Justin, thank you for the review. We recommend always checking out the "Specs & Features" tab underneath the product description on the product page to get a preview of what to expect in terms of features on an item. These briefs show "No-fly, contoured pouch provides friction-free support". If you find they're not working out for you, and they're still in new condition, you're welcome to [send them back](

Great in every way.

Everything about this item is great. Material and craftsmanship are spot on. Great fit. No rolling on waist band. Love the no-fly zone, who needs it.

October 23, 2022

Not the 9-trails liner

I got these with the hope they would be similar to the 9-trails liner, but they are not. Much thinner and stretchy by comparison, so they don't support the junk as well and the legs readily ride up the thigh and tend to bunch up in the growing area.

August 30, 2022

The best

No fly? That took a little getting used to. But now I mostly wear these. When I want a fly, I wear other boxers, including Patagonia's essential boxers. But these are my go-to favorite. They're more snug, comfortable, durable, and breathable than anything else I've tried, and they do not quickly stretch out. I will keep buying them.

July 22, 2022

Very snug!

Great feeling underwear. Better for more extreme applications. If I were using these to MTB they'd be perfect. I use them mainly for daily wear and the occasional hike / snowboard. I would buy again for daily use other than that it's a bit snug in the crotch area.

June 15, 2022

Breathable and comfortable

These are a solid pair of base layer style underwear. These fit well and are a great upgrade to some of the older styles I have. Very happy with the fit and feel of these.

May 31, 2022

Nice but not durable

These I totally were a great pair of underwear. They arent as comfortable as some other brands but overall a really good pair of underwear. But I quickly developed a hole in the but of them. I would not recommend them based on how fragile the fabric seems.

Response from Patagonia
June 3, 2022

Hi Ben! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that a hole has developed in the material. This is something we'd consider a warranty issue so you're welcome to return. We've reached out to you directly with further assistance.

May 18, 2022


They don't have a fly. I didn't notice that until after I had put them on and had to pee. And to do that, I had to undo my harness and belt, unzip, and pull my underpants down. What sort of idiot would design men's underpants without a fly?

Response from Patagonia
May 19, 2022

Thank you for taking the time to submit this review, Chuck. Because they're constructed with a no-fly contoured pouch, flyless styles tend to offer more support than those with a fly, making them an ideal choice to wear during physical activity, and many customers prefer this style for certain undertakings. We're sorry this feature wasn't what you were looking for. If you haven't done so already, we'll be happy to help you [return]( them.

May 12, 2022

My favorite underwear

I love this underwear. I have like 5 of them and they are very comfortable all day long whether at work, at home, at the gym, or travelling. Highly recommended.

May 11, 2022

Feel Great; Bad Quality

Bought a pair of these from REI. I've worn them 3 times and washed 3 times. They are very comfortable but the stitching around the thigh at bottom of the leg is already coming apart. About 3" has lost the threads. It looks like it should be a strong stitch given the design but something is off! I wouldn't recommend these.

May 7, 2022

I dont like these

They are tight and small and uncomfortable. This is a new design. I did like the previous design.

Great fit, needs a front opening

Love how these fit and stay true after a whole day of wear. They are comfy, light-weight, and very breathable. Would love a front opening, though!

A Reliable Favorite

The Sender Boxer Briefs are a solid performer. The waist-band is well-behaved and not inclined to roll, and the seam is scarcely detectable in the back. Unlike looser Patagonia boxers styles, the legs don't tend to ride up on my lanky frame when active. They are relatively quick drying in camp settings. At home, I machine wash and air dry and ...

brief on briefs

Size is spot on for me. Good but not over compression although it might be good to design a more compressive pair to wear for running, surfing etc. The "new" odor control is very good; that said, it's still nowhere near merino for odor control. The material and construction is very good; these shorts are great for wear; I tried the e... Read Moressential brief to compare a couple months ago and was really disappointed in those. The leg seam blew out, separated after a month of use.

February 12, 2022

A bit snug.

These dont have a front door which makes using the restroom a bit tricky. They are a bit snug, which in winter weather seems ok. They might not be comfortable in summer when outside and active.

February 1, 2022

Comfortable cut and light weight.

Soft material. Comfortable cut. Flexibke and non binding during sport. Light weight and also seems very breathable.

February 1, 2022

Very Comfortable

Love the material and is very comfortable. After 2 washes they hold up very good.

January 5, 2022


I like these boxers a lot. They fit a tiny bit small, but other then that, they're breathable, great for active lifestyle, and comfortable.

January 3, 2022


When I put these on, it seemed like sliding into a zip-loc baggie. Very plastic feel, and when worn under patagonia running shorts, with each step taken, there is quite a bit of friction and noise. Great fit, great design, just not the best material.

Response from Patagonia
January 13, 2022

Hey Dan, we appreciate the feedback. It sounds like the moisture-wicking 89% recycled nylon/11% spandex stretch micromesh fabric didn't work well for your needs. You might be more inclined to use a boxer brief with more natural materials, so we'd recommend checking out the [Men's Essential A/C Boxer Briefs - 6"]( which are made from 95% TENCEL lyocel.

December 28, 2021

Comfy briefs

Love these boxer briefs! They keep you warm, but they also breath well and let your parts air out. One are for improvement would be the fly - or the lack of. Should be a split to let you take a pee without hauling your drawers down!

Very Light and Kinda Tight

Super lightweight boxers with awesome breath-ability. I am 510 and weigh 155. My waist is 32. By the size chart, it says I should be a medium.

Whoa, why no fly?

These are great boxers. So comfy. But man, why no fly? If you use these to climb in the cold with multiple layers on top of them, it's a real pain to fish your way in there to take a pee!

November 23, 2021

Snug as a bug in a rug

In brief, the briefs fit.

November 18, 2021

Great stuff

Great piece of under wear. It took me a day or two to adjust from cotton polyester briefs. Only complaint I can make is the label did at times irritate me, seemed to disappear after first washing. As for some of the complaints of not having a fly, Ive always found a fly them to be a pita, never have used that feature past and present. Cheers!

November 9, 2021

Holds Everything In Place!

I ordered all three boxer brief options that Patagonia offers and these are by far my favorite. The fit is spot on for an athletic build and do a great job with ventilation when I'm using them for mountain biking, hiking or just day-to-day use. Durability seems to be great, as well!

November 6, 2021

Great Fit

I've been buying Patagonia underwear for years for my husband - he loves them, very comfy and true to size.

November 4, 2021

I dig 'em

I primarily bought these to run in. They feel amazing, but did leave me with some mild chaffing. I would totally buy another pair, though.

October 26, 2021

Buy the Essentials instead

These were recommended to me by a staff member who had just worn them while hiking around Europe for a month. Personally if I were packing for a month long trip I would exclusively bring merinos but I figured their sign off was worth the try. They're fine at best, definitely not replacing my patagonia essentials boxers in the rotation.

Best underwear ever

Best underwear ever for daily use and all outdoor adventures!!

October 17, 2021

Great Product, Universal Use

Excellent product, use it for daily wear, back backing, and a board short liner for surfing. Has held up really well with the use, and remains a great fit!

Great underwear!

Patagonia underwear are awesome! Every Christmas, every birthday, and then twice a year. I have about 7 pair. On my way to having only Patagonia underwear.

I have been wearing Patagonia underwear for the last 16 years. Im a wildland firefighter and choose these because they dry so quickly. I love these newer styles and my only complaint is that they all have worn in the crotch within a few months. But I am pretty hard on them.

Perfect Boxer Brief

Exactly as the description says on the website. Size is true. Very comfortable and supportive. Mesh material keeps me cool on the warm summer days and while working out. Waistband does not roll, legs do not hike up. For me close to the perfect pair of boxer briefs.

Comfortable, Nice Design, Needs a Fly

The material is very comfortable and dries quickly. The "colored rings" waistband looks nice; much nicer than one with "PATAGONIA" written around it in big, tacky letters.

Super breathability and comfort

Boxers are so extremely breathable and comfortable. Fit is really tight what lets sweat coming really quickly out of your body. Also, some people complain about durability, but I didn't have any issues so far (I don't dry them in the machine). The only thing is that I had to go with the size small instead of medium (usually I have medium ... Read Morein Patagonia shorts).

Perfect feel

Best underwear ever ,perfect fit

April 20, 2021


Bought these for mountain biking. They are so light and breathable making the ride breezy and comfortable. Very form fit as well.

No Fly

Bought this in a rush and didn't notice they have NO FLY. TBH I didn't know men's underwear existed without a fly. Material is standard synthetic stuff. Rides up ones thighs, as most boxer briefs do.

Hey Bruce, we're sorry these briefs weren't what you expected. Please feel free to check out the [Men's Essential Boxer Briefs 3"]( which do have a fly included. Thank you very much for your feedback!

Great fit, great performance

These are my go-to boxers for rock climbing. They are light weight, moisture wicking, and they stay in place well when taking a harness on and off.

April 5, 2021


Exactly what you would expect out of a performance boxer. Great length, great fit.

March 28, 2021

Mega comfy

Please keep making these just as is! My favorite synthetic active wear boxers; used for hundreds of miles of thru hiking, trail running, and whenever I need boxers that aren't cotton. Honestly like the lack of fly for extra comfort with no seams down there. Will continue to buy as long as they exist.

March 28, 2021


I have 6 pair of Sender Boxer Briefs and they're the only underwear I own or have worn the past three years. Very comfortable fit, no stink, dry quickly, no-roll waist band (!), no annoying seams and they breathe very well. The best athletic-type underwear Ive owned.

March 17, 2021


Feel like Im wearing nothing.

March 15, 2021

Trial underwear

Fits well and comfortable but I do prefer a fly opening

February 26, 2021


These are really great underwear. They do run large though so they are sliding down my butt. The ones I bought a year before were a bit tighter.

February 16, 2021

Not quite right

Ordered this underwear to replace the essential boxer brief that I had and it didnt fit the same. A weird combination of not of enough stretch for an athletic pair of underwear and too short in the inseam and the junction with the body of the underwear. Wouldnt recommend for something to hike in. Went back to the essential pair of boxer briefs and ... Read Morethey fit just right.

January 21, 2021

super comfortable, but falls apart

I'm a huge patagonia fan. On a normal day ¾ of my clothes are patagonia. In 2019 I purchased several pairs and worked them into my rotation with other options from ice breakers and smart wool. By mid-2020 the patagonia ones were mostly destroyed. The stitching is perfect, the elastic is perfect. The fabric disintegrated in the lower crotch an... Read Mored and top bottom of my leg area. Do not expect these to last more than 30 wear / wash cycles. The value is not there compared to other patagonia products.

Amazing - glad they make these again!

I own 9 pair of these and they fit great! They stopped making these for awhile and Im glad theyre back!

January 11, 2021

Still looking for the one

I own these as well as the essential boxer briefs. The legs in these are a liiitle long and the lack of P hole is a dealbreaker. Probably good for running but quite inconvenient otherwise. Hey Patagonia, how about making a Goldilocks boxer so I dont have to buy anything else? Essential boxer briefs with ventilation, in a length between the two pres...

Super Breathable

These are some of the most comfortable, breathable, and overall great boxer briefs I have ever worn. The material is very durable and has shown little wear over the year that I have used them. Would recommend to anyone!

December 26, 2020

Perfect fit

Great fit & comfort

December 6, 2020

Stretch comfort

I took away one star because while the fit and comfort is incredible, they pick up quite a bit of fabric lint after a handful of wears/washes, despite line drying. So, if you're the only one looking at them and use them to work out or hike, they're the best.

December 4, 2020

Needs a Fly

They are mens boxers, they need a fly.

December 2, 2020

Great for running, under shorts or tights

I use these for cool to cold weather running. So far no chafing although my longest run in them is probably about 10 miles. The fit is great, the fabric is really nice and soft with good stretch and they ride up less than any other boxer brief I've tried. Still need to pull them down occasionally but I haven't ever found a boxer brief tha... Read Moret really stays put when high stepping, squatting stretching, etc. Maybe it's the way my legs are shaped? Anyway these are the best technical fabric boxer briefs I've found and they have become my go-to running underwear for colder weather.

No flap!

Fits great, feels great. Lack of fly flap is always shocking when I need to go. Makes full unbelting/buttoning necessary; tough to do in some sporting applications.

Hole after first run.

I've been a long time fan of my Patagonia Capilene Lightweight Boxers and hoped that these would have a similar feel and durability... Sadly, they do not. After my first wear/run a dime-sized hole appeared in the crotch seam. Definitely disappointed in the durability for the price.

Response from Patagonia
December 1, 2020

Hello Mike, we are so sorry to hear these developed a hole after your very first run. Please don't hesitate to [return]( them under warranty if you were looking to do so but haven't already.

Awesome Quality, Inconvenient as Hell

Love these undies. The material is awesome, they are supportive and don't get funky after a week of wear, but...why did you decide that not having a pee flap was a good idea? I dropped them two stars because I have to revert to being 5 years-old again, unbuckle, and drop the tops of these just to pee. These are higher quality than my Ex-Offi... Read Morecios, probably more comfortable, but they are my backups on the fire line because I look like I'm back in elementary school when I have to step away from my co-workers. Seriously, I have to hide in the woods because its a whole production, just to pee. My 7 year-old made fun of me on a hike because he asked, "dad, why did you make me learn how to use the pee flap, but you don't?" Seriously, Patagonia....step it up. Easy fix. Until then, Ex-Officios it is!

September 3, 2020

Breast brief , bad band

These boxers feel great, but after the first time putting them on the waistband remains stretched out. I wish the band had more elasticity.

September 1, 2020

Material is okay

They fit well and look good, but the material feels a little sweaty/like plastic. If I weren't struggling to find fair trade men's clothing, I'd return them.

August 5, 2020

Great for hiking!

I bought two pairs of these boxer briefs to wear as I hiked the Camino de Santiago last year, and intended to alternate them with different underwear on the trail. I ended up re-washing these every other day, because no other "performance underwear" or "hiking-friendly" underwear was as good! I walked 15-20 miles of hard trails... Read More each day in these, and had no chafing, no discomfort, no "sweaty parts" afterwards - these did the job well, held up to abuse on the road, and were even comfortable enough to re-wash for my 15 hour flight home from Spain! Highly recommend these for hiking! The price may be a little steep, but you won't need (or want!) any other kind of underwear after these!

Another 'Tweener

Fine Patagonia quality product BUT the sizing bugaboo holds it back. I am right on a 34 waist and the large is fine in the butt and thighs for athletic folks, but the waistline barely fits. I don't understand the 31-33 and 34-36 split, especially with so many people clustered right at 34. Should be imo a 30-32/33-35/36-38 split. The size small... Read More would probably be too snug in the waist and the thighs, so if there was ever a product that needed a size M/L, this would be it. Btw, as a long-time Patagonia customer, I find that I am almost ALWAYS in between sizes for tops and bottoms. At 5'8 and 170 I don't think my build is that freaky.

July 23, 2020

Quick-dry and Scent-Free

Awesome active wear undies. Good for general use, too. The bits stay cool. The drawers dry quickly. Scent-free for multiple uses before the need to wash. Highly recommended.

July 13, 2020

Fits and performs as advertised!

I usually wear compress shorts when I'm working out. Though I'd give these a try when I'm hiking. They're breathable and don't chafe!

June 21, 2020

Nice and simple

Lightweight, breathable, good fit and last a long time.

June 21, 2020

good underwear for active endeavors but they need a fly

Stays put, lightweight, moisture wicking and not stinky. But please add a fly!

June 17, 2020


I enjoy the fit and feel of the product. The one item causing my low score is a feature missing on the underwear. There is no opening on the front of the shorts, to facilitate bathroom use requires removing the pants.

June 17, 2020

Husband Approves

These are the only boxers/briefs my husband wears when doing physical activity - working out or hiking.

Best ever

Best brief ever, and Ive got a lot! Part of the daily wardrobe for all situations. I even use them in lieu of shorts on backpack trips. Quick dry, form fitting, and comfortable as hell!

April 24, 2020

Doesnt ride up, no friction

Ive had other 6 boxer briefs that eventually ride up the leg, but these stayed put while running, hiking, and during workouts. These fit snuggly but not constricting like compression shorts. I have larger than average thighs and really enjoy these.

April 8, 2020

Its great!

I cut the liner of my old Strider Pro Shorts and swap it with this one. It becomes an even better shorts now! no discomfort at all

January 15, 2020

Great "performance" underwear

Love these as my "technical" underwear. Very breathable and supportive. No chafing when I use them for soccer, biking, running. Also have the hydrocross which I like more for water/surfing/etc, but these are cooler and more breathable. Great all around if you like boxer briefs... Men's medium is super comfortable fit for me, I'm... Read More a 31-32 waist for shorts and pants.

Medium sizing is a smaller

Medium sizing is a smaller medium as compared to a similar Duluth brief.

December 19, 2019

Best ever

Let me say that again. Best ever. These things just disappear when you're wearing them. I bought them for running (I usually hate wearing underwear on runs but wanted to try to whole jogger pant thing...) and for gym sessions. My god, your loins will thank you. I bought 2 pairs and will probably buy 2 more, then will probably buy 2 more again.... Read More

December 11, 2019

Greatest set of undergarment I've ever owned

These fit and function like a second skin. The lack of crotch hole/access is actually a bonus, since there's less fabric to fold over and chafe in that area. World's greatest underwear for any/all activity.

December 2, 2019

Favorite boxers

Light, breathable and comfortable... work at the office and on the trail. Definitely recommend. Only drawback is that they don’t seem to hold up as long as my capilene daily boxers have.

November 22, 2019

They still ride up when

They still ride up when i cycle. Not all the way, but still riding up. Little loose at the waist, good fit on the thighs but not falling off, good feel. I feel like id be to big for a small but I could be wrong. Defentially not going back to hanes, will order more. Hopefully ill gain some weight in the mean time

November 22, 2019

New favorite

These boxers have been great to me. I also have the Essential boxer briefs and the HydroCross, but this is a special pair. Very breathable for running and when they never got too saturated even after a full day of activities.

November 20, 2019

Best ever!

My favorite boxer briefs i've ever owned, please don't ever change a thing on them or discontinue.

November 18, 2019

New and Improved

Purchased 3 pairs to replace older Capilene version. Big improvement in fit and comfort. Lack of a fly is not that big a deal to me.

November 15, 2019

Like wearing nothing

Best boxer briefs I’ve gotten in a long time. Super comfortable! I love how comfortable the waistband is. I literally forget I’m wearing them and they give great support to the package.

November 14, 2019

Solid underwear

More comfortable and durable than their previous active boxer briefs. Once you remove the label you forget you are wearing them. I buy the green (I like the material better than the black... even though you would think its identical material, I think the black is slightly thicker).

November 11, 2019

Great underwear

I wore Tommy John underwear prior to trying these. I have to say these are much better in form, fit and quality. My only complaint is the very long care instructions tag. I wish the tag wasn’t there and the care instructions were printed on the underwear. That being said, be careful cutting the tag off. I slipped and cut a hole in one of the four p...

Made for Machines, Not Humans

I didn't notice the wording in the product description that these briefs have no fly until after I received them and went back to review the details. How does one function without a fly?
