Best Male Underwear?
by Behold Scotland » Tue Jul 30, 2019 7:58 pm
A little bit of a personal subject and I'm sure it'll raise some great answers. As my trusty thin cycling shorts have finally given up the ghost, after years of hard wearing, I am on the lookout for a replacement pair.
What I found towards the end was that they were fine for hillwalking but on long trails they caused some, well, lets just say chaffing
Does anyone have any recommendations for good, all round, hillwalking / hiking under-crackers?

100% Merino wool boxers are available for just over £20, I've been meaning to get a pair.

Merino wool boxers are probably the most comfortable & great for multi day hikes, however I've found in my experience they don't last very long, so not worth the price tag.

Perfect for walking.

ATM I prefer my ExOfficio give & go boxers, they are ideal and I might just get a couple more pairs, but these days there's a lot more choice about.
I also have two pairs of paramo (cambia I think they're called) one short leg and one longer, they were great for a start but i think the elastic has gone in both pairs, they seem fine, but when on with breeks and walking they start working there way down and quickly become very uncomfortable, not to impressed as they havent had a lot of use tbh, so I need to replace them both.
I like Merino tops and socks, but there's not a chance I'm having warm itchy wool round my nether regions plus it's not the best for drying and quite delicate for wild washing.

They have lasted well and been really comfortable. Tried Alpkit ones but they didn’t last 200 miles.
Also carry a tube of Sudocrem for chafing etc

I also like separatec, which uses a similar fabric but has a "pouch" to stop skin to skin contact.

Wash well and are comfy to wear without any real problems
