These are my first foray into a wind boxer vs. a wind brief. Works great under loose pants or tights.


  • Form fitting
  • Wide wind panel
  • Comfortable waist


  • They ride up a bit, but all boxers do that.

If you run in the winter, and let's face it, you do, or you wouldn't be reading this, and you are a man, you need wind protection upfront.  I have worn wind briefs for as many years as I have been running outside. 

Lately, I have noticed uncomfortable chafing (not that there is another kind) from the briefs I was wearing under tights and loose fit running pants. A boxer seemed to be the solution.  I got these recently and have done a run of 9 miles and one of 6 miles in these in temps of 15°F with a strong wind.  The wind protection did its job perfectly.  The shorts fit like a bike short without the chamois, so very snug at the legs, but not on the order of compression shorts.  They have been perfect with no chafing.

They do ride up a bit, but not more than other boxers.

Moisture management isn't ideal, but balancing heat/sweat and cold is always a challenge.

If you are looking for a wind boxer, this is a great choice.

Congrats to you for running outside in the winter.  You are awesome.

Never worry about the wind blowing up your pant legs and freezing you out again while you're ice-fishing in Minnesota or duck-hunting in Washington now that you've found SportHill's Northwind Unders for men. The 3SP polypropylene fabric blocks chilly winds up to 35 mph so you won't have winter's fury chilling you to the core. The brushed elastic waistband and flat-locked seams ensure you won't be chafing under all those layers, either.
