The Case for
Synthetic Underwear

    Wearing white pants?
    You're gonna want to wear light colored or grey boxer briefs.

Outdoor enthusiasts will tell you that cotton kills in the wintertime, and in the summer, it just gets noticeably wet, weighed down and uncomfortable. While you can easily throw on a fresh T-shirt, you can't always do the same for underwear. That's why you may want to switch to synthetic boxer briefs. With moisture-wicking capabilities, this nylon pair from ExOfficio has been treated with Aegis' Microbe Shield to fight odor and bacteria. The tagless design and breathable fabric mean they're super comfortable too. Plus, they're easily washable in the laundry or even a sink because they dry so quickly. (The brand touts you can travel the world with just two pairs.) Why boxer briefs? Because boxers bunch up under slim, well-fitting pants, and while there's nothing wrong with trunk-style briefs, we think these are the best of both worlds.
