I want to talk about my underwear

I want to talk about my underwear

This gear review has been a long time coming, for the past 4 years I've trusted ExOfficio GIVE-N-GO boxer briefs on every adventure I've been on. It honestly doesn't matter what type of adventure it is, I always make sure to pack my GIVE-N-GO boxer briefs. From camel rides in the Sahara to sleeping in snow dens in the backcountry of Montana, I know I've got a solid pair of underwear that will keep me dry and warm when it matters. More importantly, for the last half dozen international trips I have only packed 2-3 pairs of ExOfficio boxers for my entire trip. The beauty of these boxers is they are extremely quick drying, I am able to wash them at night in the shower and have a fresh pair of boxers in the morning. Plus, they are odor resistant with Aegis® Microbe Shield™ to eliminate odor-causing bacteria in fabric so I stay extra fresh on those long days. It really cuts down my pack size and weight when I can bring 7.5 oz (2.5 oz each) of underwear for a 3 week trip.  

As of this week, I just bought 4 more pairs of the new GIVE-N-GO sport mesh! Now my entire underwear drawer is filled with ExOfficio boxers. I already loved their GIVE-N-GO boxers briefs, but their newest breed of sport mesh are next level in my eyes. They are the first pair of boxers that I put on and thought "damn this is a nice pair of boxers". Before I had a pair I thought underwear was just underwear, but these feel like I'm wearing something designed for an astronaut. Seriously, they fit so well and the material is so comfortable I do feel like I'm wearing something from the future.
