Why We Built The Merino Performance Boxer Brief

From snowshoe trails to fresh groomers, the Merino Performance Boxer Brief stops the chill from biting and the moisture from collecting. We built these action-ready skivvies with odor-fighting, quick-drying wool to keep us feeling fresh throughout our long arduous journeys across powdery mountains.

  • Performance boxer brief for all your athletic pursuits
  • Itch-free wool blend delivers warmth and moisture-management
  • Stretch construction provides freedom of movement
  • 6-inch inseam for easy layering and chafe-free movement

Tight leg opening

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: M

Logged in to echo similar comments. I am 6' 195 lbs with a 32 waist. I bought the medium and the waist fits fine, but the leg opening only stretches so much until the stitching reaches its limit. Do not buy these if you have somewhat muscley thighs.

I wore these for 4 days backpacking, wearing them only when actually hiking. From that limited (but sweaty) use, the fabric on the waistband of the lower back is permanently stained now.

Hi David! I am sorry these did not work out and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us if you'd like to set up a return and/or need recommendations for a different pair.

Still good, but a design change to note

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

I have bought these briefs for many years. They last a long time but will eventually develop holes at the waistband (after YEARS) and an upgrade is required. To be clear, I get my money out of them. They last a long time and I am not disappointed with the longevity.

My recent order (9/2021) was different than all previous versions, though. I usually get a size Large (6'2" 180) and the large fits like a true brief, snug, but still loose. The new design fits snug. I think that is the trend for men's underwear lately so is probably intentional. The leg openings are particularly tight though. That is new...

It must be that there was an overall fabric material change and the new material is not as stretchy, so when it is doubled over at the leg opening seam it comes across tighter. That, or they use a non stretchy thread which binds the fabric into a fixed opening.

Anyway, it's not the same. I think the description should have at least noted a re-design. If they put these on close-out pending a new design, though, I'll still buy a bunch while awaiting the more comfortable design tweak. :)

Still great underwear, just notably different than prior versions.

Paul nailed it

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Usually love Stoic Merino but had a similar experience to what Paul noted below.

"The new design is markedly different, particularly around the bottom of the leg openings. For some reason, the material is inflexible and so constricting that it feels like there is a string tied around my thighs."

changed fit

  • Size Bought: L

I've purchased a couple dozen of these in the past, and they were outstanding in fit and comfort. The new design is markedly different, particularly around the bottom of the leg openings. For some reason, the material is inflexible and so constricting that it feels like there is a string tied around my thighs.

The rest of the construction and comfort seems to be similar to the last design, but current design is uncomfortable to a degree that I would not purchase these again.

Hey Paul! Thank you for your feedback on this. I have let product team know of the fit issue, so hopefully they can get that straightened out moving forward. We do have a lot of other great merino boxers too. These 3 being our top rated:

Cut change

  • Fit: Runs small

This is my third pair of merino boxers from Stioc. The first two were awesome. The best underwear ever!

This time they changed the cut on the legs. I have larger thighs and they are uncomfortably tight now.

Probably fine for guys with skinny legs.
