Unbelievable function, great comfort.
on July 24, 2016
These underwear are simply amazing. (Note: The rest of this paragraph has details that might not appeal to everyone; if you're easily grossed out, the summary is that these underwear stay incredibly clean and fresh far longer than anything else I've ever owned.) I've now worn them on two (wilderness) backpacking trips now, and I can't believe what I experienced. I would normally never consider wearing the same pair of underwear for two days, especially on a backpacking trip. However, on my first trip, at the end of the first day, I noticed that things weren't too bad, so I decided to give them one more day. Even at the end of the second day, they were shockingly un-nasty. I then wore my second pair for two more days, one of which involved an 11-mile, 4000-ft climb in 80-degree weather. Same thing. And the same thing on the second trip again. I'd estimate that these underwear stay clean 3-4x longer than a normal pair of cotton or cotton-spandex boxer briefs (which is what I usually wear).
To make these even more amazing, they are extremely comfortable. They have a nice stretch, they offer great support, and they're not too tight around the thighs.
My only complaint is that they're significantly "high rise" - if I pulled them up they'd go above my belly button. I'd much prefer it if they were medium-rise. But, I can't complain, because functionally, these underwear are simply from the year 2100.
