Good for active pursuits

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I wear these when I work out or do other aerobic activities like XC skiing or running. Fit well, breathe well, and simply work well. I really like the blue color, too!

Great for activities.

These are great for active days skiing, biking or just lounging around the house. Super comfortable and stretchy!

What is this magic??

These briefs have made my day every day I've worn them. The nylon is such a durable yet comfortable material. I've worn these while climbing, snowboarding, and on regular every-day, days. In every facet, they've performed! They keep me well ventilated, hardly bunch up, and honestly sometimes I forget that I'm even wearing them! I think everyone needs at least one or five pairs in their life.

Perfect for Travel

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

If you're looking for the ultimate travel underwear, look no further. Because these are 92% Nylon, these prove to be super easy to wash on the go and quick to dry. That means you can pack less and get more out of your briefs.

The only issue that i've come across is with sizing. While I'm a medium in all underwear, it seems that the waist on these are a tad bigger than others.

Do as Advertised

  • Fit: True to size

Some quality boxers that do as advertised. They're comfortable, breathable, dry fast, and fit well. Nothing crazy, simple and effective, like boxers should be.

Great Adventure Underwear!

Super comfy, and feels like I'm wearing silk underwear! It's awesome that it's anti-microbial and it's not merino wool!

Famous Travel Underwear

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Breathable, quick drying, and moisture-wicking. These are the ultimate travel underwear for long days with a backpack. I'd also highly recommend them for day to day use.
Bottom line, these underwear are worth the price tag and wish I could replace all my underwear with them.

Super light and comfy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Small

Great undewear, super light weight and comfy, and they wick away sweat really well. Awesome for multiple day camping excursions and similar activities. They do run a bit big, so if you like a snugger boxer brief fit, go down a size from what you would normally wear. I am a 31-32 waist and went with a small and they fit great.

Love at first wear

I adore these. I wear a different pair of these every day to work and to the gym, and they are, by far, the best underwear I have worn. I've had Hanes, Saxx, Under Armor, Nike, ODR, and many other brands but ExOfficio takes the cake.

Any activity for any duration, you will be happy, comfortable, and odorless in these underwear.

too loose

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

I dont like these boxers. I have only worn them once or twice and they give me the feeling that I am wearing nothing ... which for me is not a good thing. I like my boxers to feel snug enough [without being too tight] and to prevent my junk from hanging and these dont do that

If you like the feeling of

Light weight, comfy

Beats cotton underwear by a long shot. I'm a 30-31" waist and got the small, legs seem a bit small for me and they ride up a bit. Can feel weird climbing or whatnot. Recommend going up a size if your in-between sizes and trying to decide like I was.

Decent briefs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

These briefs fit great and do a good job of wicking away moisture. However, they became really pilly after their first wear and tend to ride up a little. I haven't had much of a problem with them pilling up after the first few wears so I think its just a material flaw. Overall, decent athletic briefs.

Second Skin

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

These boxers are awesome for all day wearing, they adapt nice to the skin and have zero issues. The fabric is soft and they handle hot days with ease

Son's seal of approval

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

Bought these for my son, and he loved them. He wore them on a long hike and they were still comfortable well into the evening.

Repeat buyer

I own multiple pairs of the Give-N-Go boxers, they have been my primary undergarment for day-to-day wear and outdoor activities for several years.
Originally bought a pair for ultra trail running to replace running shorts with liners, which always caused chaffing during long runs. Combining the give-n-go with a liner-less short solved this issue.

In my experience they are very durable, comfortable and manage moisture and odor as well as anything comparable. All around great piece of apparel.

Trashed in 24 hours...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Took me a while to finally pull the trigger on some tech underwear, as the price point is generally pretty high. Reading tons of reviews and seeing these on sale at around $15/pair, I committed. After 24 hours of wearing my first pair, which included 10ish miles of cycling, 2 hours of climbing, and a full day of physical activity at my job, these boxers looked like they've seen years of abuse. They almost immediately start pilling, and the deteriorating/exposed fibers catch on each other like velcro. They look terrible, as if they're starting to fall apart, after only one day of use. The quality is just not there for $15/pair, nevermind at full price. I've heard such great things about this brand, and it's unfortunate that these just don't live up to the hype.

Thanks again to the Backcountry staff for all the help with the return/refund. Off to try out the slightly more expensive SAXX underwear. Fingers crossed.

Go-To Athletic Boxer

I have a couple pair of these now and they are great! Other reviews say they run up but i don't have that issue myself. I only wear them while being active and they perform as they should. Comfy, soft, sleek, and breathable. Look no further if you are looking for a boxer like this!

Comfortable Underwear

These are comfortable. I use these for both daily wear and for running. They work great and are very comfortable. They regulate temperature well.

Boxers

Great boxer briefs. Nice and snug without a smell. Great backpacking briefs.

Soooooo comfortable!

These puppies fit so well and are incredibly soft & breathable. Great for an afternoon hike, night at the bar, or day in the office. Anti-Odor is pretty aweseome as well if it's day 4 on your trip and you haven't been able to wash your clothes yet!
