User Review: ExOfficio Give-N-Go Boxer Brief
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $19
Sorry folks, no pictures on this one; now for the rest of the story. Great material, outstanding support and comfort, and lasts for days on the trail with minimal care. Recommended for daily wear and any trip were you may only get to wash them out in a creek every couple of days.
- Comfortable material
- Breathes well and transfers moisture
- Not as tight as athletic nylon underwear
- Helps stop chaffing
- Expensive (but good investment)
- Legs tend to ride up over the miles
I'm not the commando type, so I have to choose between lined shorts/pants or unlined ones with synthetic underwear. The mediums fit me well without being uncomfortably tight or restrictive like athletic spandex. The inner waistband has a fleecy material that adds to the comfort, with the balance of the material being a stretchy 94% nylon 6% spandex mix that does not pinch at the leg opening like bike shorts tend to do. I'm happy with the "support" and the fly works as intended.
Moisture is wicked away on all but the hottest, most humid days. On those days I typically switch to mesh lined shorts anyway. Care is pretty easy, wash them out at the end of the day with some camp suds and they will dry overnight. They will go for weeks this way. Just airing them out at the end of the day will get you several days. Constant wear is limited to a couple of days. The material and seams have proven durable
Overall very happy with them. I didn't pay full price for mine, and you can often find them on sale through all the usual locations. Even at full price, they are a good investment, just like any good gear.
