Here's what other sites are saying:
No, it's not some throwback form of medieval torture. The merino wool in the Ortovox Men's Competition Boxer is ultra-soft, breathable, and comfortable, unlike the itchy, scratchy stuff of yore. In addition to performing as well or better than newfangled synthetics, the wool regulates your skin temperature like a champ and prevents odors from taking over. The Competition Boxer is make from lightweight 190g wool, but Ortovox inserted mesh in the hot spots for ventilation and 240g merino in cold-sensitive zones for comfort.
