Good material, resists odor, dries quick, too constrictive, needs redesign / refinement, overpriced
on May 15, 2015
The material feels great. It dries quickly. Obviously faster than cotton, but surprisingly slower than some of my non-cotton underwear that were not even advertising this benefit. I've hand washed these on a trip. No problem there. The biggest problem for me is the design in the front is way too conservative. I have an average size package, yet it feels like I am wearing something between men and women's underwear. It smushes your package, uncomfortably so. For the exorbitant price they charge, this should not be such an oversight. I would understand if I was a well-endowed outlier, but I am not. I can only imagine this design being comfortable for someone who is 3" or less or missing their balls perhaps. No disrespect to those who are, these will probably fit well. The material seems great quality, but not shaped properly. If you put this underwear on a girl mannequin it would probably just look like women's underwear as their is no real area reserved for the package. These are advertised as underwear for people who travel and/or are doing athletic activity. I've had these a few months now and have hiked a few times in them. They are odor resistant, much better than cotton (although almost anything is). But because they don't seem to be designed for men, it becomes quite uncomfortable in the front as it feels like I'm trying to hike in women's underwear. Maybe winter hiking would be okay with shrinkage. lol. Maybe they designed & tested these in a very cold environment. Maybe they would be okay if you were swimming in a very cold pool. Great prototype, but seriously back to the drawing board ExOfficio. Also, how about some more attractive designs. I don't want to pay $20-$30/ea to look like I'm wearing grandpas tighty whiteys. It's 2015, do people still wear those? Seriously, if your chiseled model doesn't look good in them, I'm surely not going to. How about some travel underwear that the ladies (or guys) can't resist. Good concept, needs refinement.
