I thought I was ridiculous for buying underwear this expensive... I thought I was ridiculous for buying wool underwear in other-than-winter conditions. Then I wore them on a dive job in the tropics. Then I wore them on spring SWAT activations in the rain in the upper midwest. Then I wore them on a 90*-day. Then I wore them on a sandbox deployment. And you know what I found:
- The legs fit mine, and are neither constricting nor flopping off (I got the long boxer-brief style)
- There's enough room for the junk, so that they're not all balled up (pun intended)
- I sweated. Boy did I. But despite sweating, there was no swamp-ass. I've compared them to my SmartWool and Under Armour, and I think that these just edge out the SW, and are far better than the UA, although I may buy a few more of those 'cause they're so much cheaper.
But these... yeah, I'll but more of these. As soon as they're back in stock I'm buying 2 more for me.
To say these are just "e;comfy"e; is an understatement. To put it short, get ready to want to replace all of your boxers with these!
These actually do work to keep you dry on heavy working days. However, after they get damp it can feel itchy, like wearing wet swim shorts all day. This doesn't happen with cotton briefs. I still use them when appropriate, but I just have to be aware when planning. Most probably won't have this problem. As good as they fit, they failed to bring my girl into estrus.
I had previously bought (2) pairs of the previous style boxers in 2017 - to say I was disappointed would be an understatement. I spoke to First Lite about the issues and their customer service shined as usual. I was extremely impressed with the performance of the previous boxers but the durability was a huge issue. Along comes the Wick boxers in 2018 with promised performance and durability & this time it's all there and then some! I bought 2 pairs of the Wick boxers for a September, spot and stalk mule deer hunt in Colorado. I liked them so much that I wore them every single day of my fall hunts as well as the remainder of the construction season - a minimum of 4 days a week. I logged on today to buy a couple more pair so I can wear them every day of the week. They're that good. As long as they don't change, I don't see me every buying a different boxer ever again.
I have so far used these during multiple cardio sessions training as well as one Florida spot and stalk hog hunt. Overall I am more impressed than expected. I usually wear ExOfficio boxer briefs daily as well as in extended hiking and hunting trips. The firstlite wick boxer briefs are notably more comfortable and regulate moisture/temperature better. They are soft, warm, comfortable and do not ride up like other boxers. When doing 3 mike runs these do not turn into thongs by the end of the workout. These did a great job during a late December spot and stalk hog hunt in the Florida panhandle. Temperatures ranged from the low 40s (F) to low 70s (F). After a long day of hiking around these kept me warm in the cool morning and dry when the temperature rose later in the day. I own quite a few pieces of firstlite gear and always expect quality from them, but did not expect that these would make my top 3 favorite firstlite gear items to date list. Overall very happy.
