    Default Uncomfortable Skivvies - Need Advice on Good Boxer Briefs

    Mine ride up the thigh on active hunts and drive me nuts. Can anyone recommend a brand of boxer briefs that doesn't ride and is good for hunting (wicking/antimicrobial)?

    I like Minus33 merino chonies with a daily dousing of powder to keep the boys happy.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    I'd imagine anything that wicks moisture will work well. As for them riding up, maybe a tighter fit would keep them in place. Too bad they aren't like boots where you can try a few pairs on and walk around in them to see if you like them...

    So you leave your boys at home for safe keeping? Lol

    I like merino wool but am not convinced that minus 33 is the best. I have two pairs and the waist band bunches up. I still prefer them over my underarmour and ex-oficio boxers but hope to try some smart wool or first lite boxers with a different waist band design.

    Agreed on the waistband. My belly folds the band in half when I bend over, then kinda snaps when I stand up. Constant reminder I'm chubby.

    Wow... now I think you've actually hit on a new thread topic for once!

    Not sure about all those fancy-dancy brands, but my personal choice is good ol' Fruit of the Loom boxer briefs. Can't stand them "bikini" style briefs and hate the loose boxers. The FTL's are the best of both worlds. The 100% cotton construction has never presented a problem. And you can get a 10-pack of them at Wally's and get change back from a 20-dollar bill.

    The core4 merinos seem nice, haven't had them in the backcountry yet. Going to take some exofficio too, although they still ride up....not as bad as my under armor, which I hated..they also get super wet too. Wet crotch that won't dry is no fun.

    Talk to some Iron Doggers. They have to have special skivvies that have few seams and don't ride. All those long miles with all that vibration means a little seam or riding up can cause some serious damage.

    The same thing would happen to me during PT runs, I hated to keep having to adjust them on a 2-4 mile run so I bought a pair of spandex boxer briefs, nice snug fit, supports the bag and they dont ride up at all. Not sure of the brand though.
