Fit Our testers have never filled their feedback forms with as many euphemisms as they did for these tights. Why? The MyPakage First Layer’s signature feature is a “keyhole” pouch built to cradle a man’s, er, package, preventing overheating, reducing chafing, and eliminating the need for constant adjustments. “Super-comfortable, and kept things from getting too muggy down there,” reports one tester. A seamless panel in the crotch eliminates rubbing, and four-way stretch ensures the pants moved with testers for everything from ski-touring to fatbiking. Only downside: no front flap for peeing.
Wicking As we expect with synthetics, the 100-percent polyester fabric wicked moisture quickly and dried in a flash. And a Polygiene antimicrobial treatment kept stink mostly at bay for up to four days.
Warmth These lightweight pants worked best for high-output activities in mild conditions. Testers didn’t find them insulating enough for resort skiing or other moderate pursuits when the mercury dropped into the 20s.
Options Also comes in ¾-length ($40) and boxer brief ($30). XS-XXL
