3.0 out of 5 stars Great for travel, could use a little more room up front, December 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ExOfficio Men's Give-N-Go Brief (Sports Apparel)
These are great for travel, particularly to warmer climates. In hot, humid areas I shower more often, and being able to change underwear each time is nice. I wash them when I shower, wear a different pair, then by the next shower the first pair has dried out. Hotel shampoo generally works really well to wash these since it lathers up well and rinses well. I've also used bar soap and shower gel, which take a little more work, but do just fine.

They dry very quickly and I will often just hang them in a closed closet so they're not in the way of housekeeping. They've always been dry when I check later even with no moving air. If put anywhere with moving air like in the flow of the AC or on a balcony, they really dry fast.

The one issue I have is they could use a little more room in the front, like others have mentioned. Wouldn't take much extra cloth to make them roomier since it's stretchy fabric. Not a deal breaker, but nice it they'd just make that small change for the future.

One thing on usage, they used to include instructions on how to dry them and I can't recall if they did with the recent pairs I just bought. To dry, squeeze/wring them out with your hands, then lay them flat on a towel and roll it all like a burrito and squeeze the roll. That extra step takes a lot of the remaining water out of them even if the towel is already damp.

Update May 2013: I've dropped these down a star. What I've found over time is they aren't as good for hot, humid environments as I thought. They really don't breathe as much as it seemed which I noticed after comparing to regular cotton just to compare. Taking frequent showers covered up for that. It could be partly due to them being generally too tight for the stated size, but if I buy another pair, it'll be the boxer style so there's ventilation in addition to through the fabric.
