We’ve received some remarkable tester feedback over the years, but this sets a new standard: “It feels like there’s an angel in my briefs, offering gentle support.” That exceptional assistance comes from the articulated “front pouch” and the vertical mesh panels that flank either side. The vents also promote side-to-side airflow.
The pinhole mesh throughout is ultra-breathable, the 1.5-inch-thick waistband doesn’t bunch up under pack hipbelts, and the 85/15 nylon/spandex blend received high marks for retaining its shape after five nonstop days in Utah’s Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Bonus: They don’t stink after extended use.
