richardsiewert Washed and dried in a day. Great for adventure travel.

jfnomad Summary:These briefs are one of my favorite pieces of clothing. They're incredibly comfortable and will last forever.Intro:I bought four pairs of these briefs in 2008 for my 2 1/2 month hiking tour of the UK. I wanted some travel underwear that would dry quickly so I only had to carry a couple of pairs. I used two pairs for the entire 2 1/2 months, rotating them as I needed to wash them. I have used them almost exclusively, everyday, for the last 3 1/2 years.Durability:They are nylon which wears like nothing else. After three years my original four pairs look like new. In fact, I've bought new pairs since then and once they get mixed in I can't even tell which pairs are three years old and which are brand new. I hope to be buried in these... also, I hope to live many more years so that's mostly a commentary on my faith in the longevity of my underwear. Effeciency:Ironically, my ardent praise of these underwear have nothing to do with my original reason for purchasing them. I wanted underwear that were light and dried quickly. However, they're slightly heavier (by grams) than my light cotton briefs and actually take a little longer to dry. Still, they do dry fairly quickly and pack down as well as I could have expected. As with most base layer clothing, the question of odor management is significant. Nylon is NOT polyester. Polyester stinks but I've found that in general nylon does fairly well with odor. These briefs are no exception. I haven't had any problems with odors in the backcountry, and that's not because I can't smell in the mountains. For example, my poly shirts reak, these don't. I would go so far as to say that these nylon briefs are noticably superior to cotton at odor management and comparable to wool. Comfort:They are far and away the most comfortable underwear I've ever worn. I'll try not to be too graphic: they fit... well. These are for brief wearers who wear briefs for reasons of support. ExOfficio also makes regular briefs and boxer briefs. Their Sport Briefs are a little larger than cotton low-rise briefs but smaller than standard cotton briefs. They keep their fit pretty well with only a little stretch even during a multi-day backpacking trip. I've worn them on two 40 mile day hikes in the Tetons. With a hike like that comes the serious risk of chaffing. I had absolutely no problem the entire hike, despite the fact that my feet felt like bloody stumps and I probably caused irreperable damage to my knees.Value: You'll get use to me saying this about the items of gear that I really love: these are not cheap. They run [$] per pair. The fact that I won't buy any more underwear for the next 20 or 40 years is what justifies the expense. It's hard for me to buy a new pair now (I bought the first four pairs on prodeal). I've found them on [@] for [$], which is not cheap but better than full price. I rarely say it, but these briefs over-exceeded my expectations.Bottom line: These are a great pair of underwear and I highly recommend them to anyone who wears briefs. They'll last me a lifetime.

TheUglyBoot I bought four of these for a trek in BC this summer and found that I only needed to take two as I wear one while the other is drying. Because they are so comfortable, I decided to stress test them to see how well they last compared to a normal cotton briefs. I have been wearing the same two pair for the past four months 3.5 times a week each. (Yeah, my wife finds it a little odd that I wash one pair while showering every morning.) My old underwear got worn about 1.5 times ever two weeks and started looking their age after about a year or ~40 wear and wash cycles. The two briefs in my experiment have ~56 wash cycles each on them or more than a years worth of wear on my old undies. They have a pull or two where something snagged them, but they are still comfy, cool, and dry. Plus my wife thinks I look sexy in them. So, while they aren't cheap, it is money well spent.

Saami Girl I am a size 14 woman who chooses to wear the medium briefs. They are a must for my hot weather hiking gear. Easy to wash out and dries quickly. They never ride up. They are so comfortable and move with you. They are a summer favorite but they are also warm and dry on winter hikes as well. I stole a pair from my husband who works outside in all weather. He said they are the best to work in and I agree.

Stu in Co I got tired of Cotton stretching out by the end of the day. Gave two of these a try and three with the fly. They feel great all day, even after trudging through snow banks. Have a stylish appearance and after several washes still look like out of the package. Try getting all that from cotton.

Teacher Chris Was hesitant to spend so much on a pair of skiviez but I am a believer now. These briefs hug your body, they are light-weight, and they breath so well. There is no extra fabric and they never bunch up or ride up. They are easy to clean and dry on a line in a few hours. I intend to take these with me to the rainforests of Costa Rica this summer to put them to the test. I liked the first pair I bought so much I got four more.

J Killa The other exofficio boxer briefs I own are a size medium, but I usually wear a size large in other brands. Those fit great. The mediums in this style are a bit too tight in the crotch. If i wasn't so lazy i would send them back for the large.

Utah Big Mike Excellent fit, great workmanship, cool, non-chafing and quick drying. An excellent choice for the trail. Also great for everyday use. Keeps a man cool when and where needed. Moisture wicking material is a great benefit. Flexable material allows full movement without binding or pinching.

Joshua The material these are made from is very comfortable- way better than cotton. They're very breathable, which did make a noticeable difference comfort-wise.

The manufacturer's claims about quick drying times are not overstated either. I washed them and instead of putting them in the dryer, I used their roll-up-in-a-towel trick and they were completely dry after about two and a half hours.



I haven't worn them for a long enough period yet to say if the really do reduce odor, but I'm sure the extra breathability won't hurt.



The only negative I can think of is that the elastic on the legs isn't super tight, so if you have skinny thighs they might fit a little loose.
