Bought a pair for my hubby as he had worn out all his old wool underwear. He's a 33 waist. Got the Medium and they are absolutely huge on him! Am going to return for the Small, which shows a 28-30 inch waist. Hope they fit!
I owned a pair of First Lite merino boxers for three years and absolutely loved them. When the crotch finally ripped out (after 30-45 days in the field each season), I didn't hesitate to replace them. Unfortunately, the new pair is three inches shorter in the leg than the previous version. (Yes, I ordered the Long version.) I always loved the old ones because they came all the way to my knee, and the added length meant I could run them with tall socks and get away without full long underwear when the weather was chilly but not cold. These new ones are only mid-thigh on me, meaning they are no different than any of the other wool boxers in my drawer. The feel and finish is still great. Just wish they hadn't changed the fit.
I’m a full time Firefighter/EMT in the star of Georgia. Summers last 6-7 months and I need boxers that can handle that abuse and keep me dry and cool. These do the trick! I honestly forget I have them on. I’m glad I have found a pair of boxers that I don’t have to worry about ridding up or blowing the crouch out, which 90% of my other boxers have done as casualties from firefighting. Would recommend for work and hunting!
Just got back after a 7 day backcountry elk hunt and I wore these things for the entire duration. We had weather from the low 70s and some the nights were in the upper 20s with sun, rain and snow. The underwear dry rapidly, have zero man stank, and I had zero chaffing. These are deffinetly a must have!
Ok, I thought the idea of wool underwear was ridiculous. The potential problems (itching on your nether regions, shrinking, etc.) are far too many, right?
NOPE. I was wrong. My go-to for boxer-briefs prior to this was Under Armour; I still wear and love those. So I compare that as my baseline. I bought these Wick long boxer-briefs alongside a Smartwool set. The biggest thing about these is that the fit is a little unique... I find that these have really nice tight legs that hold to my legs, which prevents chafing. These, however, have more roomy seats such that they feel more like boxers in the seat. So it's almost a hybrid of boxers and boxer-briefs. For info, the SW set fits more traditionally. I personally like having the benefit of no chafing and the roominess .
As for itching - there's just none. They pill ever-so-slightly after the wash and some wear. Enough that it might look very slightly off in an outer garment, but these are underwear and I don't care!
But the real question: how to they manage sweat? So I've worn these in 30 degree F weather in the woods without any complaint, as well as 97 degree weather in the desert. What impressed me most was that, after a 15-hour operation in 92 degree ambient, running up hills and stairs then back in the vehicle for a long, hot, poorly-ventilated ride - I felt no swamp-a**. I felt strangely fresh and didn't feel like I needed to strip them off. That astonished me. I sure can't say that about my UA or any cotton underwear. So I'll continue to wear them, and bought a few more pairs.
