These are expensive but worth it. They are made of 95% merino wool and 5% lycra. Unlike cotton, these boxers do not stretch or bunch up. No wedgies. Wool is naturally odor resistant so these boxers don't stink after you've worn them a few times. They are great for traveling because you can wear them for several days in a row no problem. Even a week straight is no problem. I have worn the icebreaker boxer briefs "beast" for months and months. Those are only 150 g/cm^3. Then I bought a pair of these which are 200 g/cm^3 (thicker wool) and I much prefer these. They don't itch at all. I have only had them for about a month so I can't speak to their longevity. But I'm extremely satisfied and will buy more pairs. For my money they are literally the best underwear on the market.

i ordered the x-large thinking it may shrink, but it did not. fits well, but not snug. i wanted a snug fit so that it would keep my thighs from rubbing, but i still enjoy these briefs. wore and ran in them for one week straight, without washing, and they didn't stink at all. i let them dry out after each run though. (run average per day is around 4 miles)
