Hi, I’m Cam and I have a confession..

I spent the first 22 years of my life buying the cheapest five-pack of boxer briefs available, the route most men take.

I mean, you never notice underwear and no one can see them so...

Why spend extra money on a fancy pair?

Two years ago, I found Saxx. ONE pair of boxer briefs was $30.

What!? My typical three pack was only $15!

I was curious how a company could charge $30 for a single pair.

It’s been two years, I have the same pair, and they’re in great condition.

Since Saxx isn’t the only premium company out there, I bought eleven pairs of the best boxer briefs to see if anyone could dethrone Saxx as the best.

A few things before we get to the reviews:

  • I’m 5’11”, 155 lbs, active, and a very sweaty human, so reviews are based on my body type.
  • I review each pair based on appearance, quality, fit, comfort, price, and activity.
  • I wore each brand at least ten times. (They were washed ten times to test the durability.)
  • I engaged in some form of physical activity and slept in each pair.
  • Only boxer briefs are reviewed (according to this study 53% of men prefer boxer briefs).

Diesel Helong Fresh Modal Boxer Brief

  • They’re two inches shorter than a typical boxer brief. They aren’t a brief, but it’s close.
  • The tags were itchy and the boxers were uncomfortable.
  • Came pre-ripped in the crotch area, and you can tell they were poorly made by looking at the stitching.
  • I don’t like that they have “only the brave” printed twice along the waistband; it looks stupid.

2(x)ist Pima Stretch Boxer Brief

  • 2(x)ist Pima Stretch boxer briefs are mostly cotton so sweat is an issue.
  • They look better and fit better than a typical pair of cheap underwear, but it’s not a drastic difference.
  • They look like a black pair of Hanes, and definitely don’t provide a premium vibe.
  • You’re paying a premium price for a mediocre product. It’s not the kind of comfort and experience I’m looking for when I pay $30.

Fruit of the Loom Breathable Boxer Brief

  • Fruit of the Loom is a classic and a staple of most top drawers.
  • The ads claim the briefs are moisture wicking but they’re mostly cotton and not.
  • They get worn down after a few washes and start pilling.
  • Hanes has a slight edge over these because they were more comfortable.

Hanes Ultimate X-Temp Boxer Brief

  • They’re made of 100% cotton and don’t breathe well so sweating is awful.
  • They don’t fit as well as the expensive brands.
  • You can get a three pack for $15 on Amazon. That’s $5 a pair!
  • If you don’t value the feeling of a nice pair of underwear, you can make the argument that Hanes is a great value.
  • They’ve gone tagless (sizing is print on the back).
9

MeUndies Boxer Brief

  • MeUndies are made of MicroModal, which is one of the softest materials I’ve ever felt.
  • They are tight and small, and still bunch up.
  • Shipping takes a long time, and you can’t order on Amazon.
  • Their biggest distinction is the subscription service, where you’ll get a new pair sent to you every month for $16.
  • There are lots of unique designs and create new ones every month. A lot of the designs are gimmicky but MeUndies isn’t trying to be “elite.” They’re selling fun and convenience.

Tommy John Second Skin Boxer Brief

  • Tommy John boxer briefs are long and feature a fly that is more accessible. Tommy John was one of the first to release a long legged version, now everyone seems to have one.
  • They stay in place and are made of Non-Pilling Micro Modal (unbelievably soft). They’re the most comfortable to wear and sleep in.
  • They have cool branding, and the packaging is amazing, but their customer support isn’t great. (You can’t order on Amazon.)
  • Second Skins aren’t great with sweat, and I don’t like the 360 Sport series for working out either. (Go Anywhere’s are solid for exercise.)
  • $34 is steep, but it’s worth owning a pair.
4

Duluth Trading Buck Naked Boxer Brief

  • Buck Nakeds feel identical to ExOfficio Give-N-Go boxer briefs. They’re mostly nylon and have the same moisture wicking technology. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re made in the same factory as ExOfficio.
  • The material and fit makes a pair feel like you’re not wearing anything.
  • They’re only available on the the Duluth Trading website (not Amazon) and they charge $10 for shipping (unless you buy more than two pairs).
  • ExOfficio has better color options.
  • If you want Buck Nakeds, go with ExOfficios for $10 cheaper.

ExOfficio Give-N-Go Boxer Brief

  • ExOfficio Give-N-Go boxer briefs are lightweight, thin, and mostly nylon. If you’re used to wearing cotton, this is a different experience.
  • They’re the most breathable, and when you sweat, the moisture dries quickly. ExOfficio is what you want if you’re an athlete.
  • They’re much looser than typical boxer briefs, and do OK keeping everything in place.
  • Color options are limited. The waistband isn’t the most attractive.
  • They do a great job of eliminating bad odor.
  • They’re $16 only Amazon, making them an incredible value.

Under Armour 6″ Boxerjock

  • The original Boxerjocks are mostly polyester, and feature a mesh fly panel (great for wicking sweat and staying dry). It’s lightweight yet a bit heavier than ExOfficio.
  • They look great and the color options are endless (new colors are always being released).
  • They are durable and very comfortable. They’re on the tighter side, but they stay in place.  (They fit my body well, but other people online complain of fitting small, so you might want to size-up.)
  • Favorite feature: you can get a 3-pack for $50 or buy them individually for $25 each.
  • The new 9″ inseam option that stays in place even better than the 6″.

Saxx Vibe Boxer Brief

  • Saxx’s “Vibe” series is the best. It’s made of 95% viscose, which is soft, moisture wicking, and comfortable. (Kinetic is best for working out, but stay away from the 24-Sevens.)
  • The “Ballpark Pouch” and the raised seam on the outside of the boxers are two huge advantages that help prevent chafing.
  • Saxx has over 70 different color options and a ton of different styles. They’re the perfect amount of tightness and best looking.
  • I prefer a 8-9″ inseam. Most Saxx boxer briefs have a 5″ inseam, but now there’s a long legged version that mimics Tommy John’s.
  • For $25, you’ll get a couple years out of your Saxx. If you don’t like the quality, email them and they’ll hook you up.
