Gear Review: Stoic Merino Boy Boxer

A little bit of spandex helps these boy boxers (for her) stay in place.

For her
Get the Stoic Merino Boy Boxer for superior comfort on longer treks, says our tester. She donned these skivvies during a multiday hut trip in Colorado—and stayed stink-free throughout. A touch of spandex (seven  percent) helps this brief hold its shape better than all-wool models, and whether testers were hiking or scrambling or sitting for lunch, it never, ever rode up. $35; 2.5 oz.; stoicgear.com
