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).

Tommy John Second Skin Boxer Brief

  • Tommy John boxer briefs are longer and feature a fly that is located on top, making it more accessible.
  • They’re the most comfortable to sleep in and wear because they’re soft and stay in place.
  • They have cool branding and offer discounts as you purchase more. The packaging is amazing.
  • They’re not the best with sweat, but a “360 Sport” model that is made for sweat. (Although, I prefer ExOfficio’s for working out.)
  • $34 is steep, but I think it’s worth owning a few.
2

Saxx Vibe Boxer Brief

  • The Vibe Boxer is Saxx’s best. It’s made of 95% viscose, which is soft, moisture wicking, and comfortable. (Stay away from the 24-Sevens.)
  • Their biggest advantage is their “Ballpark Pouch” that helps prevent chafing.
  • They have over 70 different color options and a ton of different styles.
  • A pair offers the perfect amount of tightness and they’re the best looking.
  • You’ll get a couple years out of your Saxx and if you don’t like the quality, email them and they’ll hook you up.

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 looser than Saxx, but still keep everything in place.
  • Color options are limited.
  • The waistband isn’t the most attractive.
  • They’re $16 only Amazon, making them an incredible value.

Under Armour 6″ Boxerjock

  • Boxerjocks 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’re on the tighter side, but they stay in place.
  • They are durable and very comfortable.
9

MeUndies Boxer Brief

  • MeUndies are made of MicroModal, which is the softest material on earth.
  • 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.
10

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).
11

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.
12

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.

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.
