Anybody ever try the Patagonia or the Ex Officio boxers/underwear? Curious how they are if so.

ARE YOU SERIOUS? Actually I have had a pair of each. No jokes. Both were ridiculously comfortable and lasted a pretty good time. I think I liked the material of the ExOfficios a bit better, not really sure why but the inside felt a bit more plush. I have not ridden in them but I hiked in them extensively and really liked how the held up, prevented chafing and could be washed and air dried very easily for the next day.

bcrider, do we need to have you create a socks and underwear forum? I thought all hard core boarders went commando and I was the only one worried about wearing underpants.

Bigdood, neither will hold up to any bigdoo, so don't do the doo!

Thx for the feedback. Saw them and was wondering how good they were, figured they've got to be better than packing a bunch of heavy cotton boxers into the BC.

My friends, you need to check into Shart Shorts (tm), the latest innovation in functional backcountry apparel. Now, when you're strapping in at the top of that steep chute, or contemplating that rock drop, you can Fart Without Fear (tm)!

Yet another use that we hadn't thought of! They are very absorbent, so I don't see why not.

jimw, you gotta market your Shat Short (tm) to fly fishermen worldwide, hell any fishermen who stand for countless hours in rain, snow, sleet, baking sunlight or somewhere in between refusing to leave a spot until they piss or shit themselves loading their waders with warm and/or gooey nastiness from their stubborness. I wonder what it is like washing out your waders after you soil them.

I know I could have used a pair twice this week because I was too stupid to leave the middle of a lake in a downpour. I'm thinking you market them like depends undergarments only for the athletically focused ignoring bodily function rather than the aging incontenent crowd.

Yeah, the pattagucci boxers are fine... I, however, learned long ago that I like a little, ahem, support, when out all day with the hiking and the skinning and the carrying gear and stuff. If it's not cold enough for polypro or wool tights under my pants, I usually go with the tighty-whiteys made with technical fabrics. I usually save the technical boxers for long planes rides, car trips, or other situations where I'm not going to be moving that much, but the wicking is still handy.

I'm with you on the support, I usually wear an iPod and listen to a track of people yelling "go Justin! c'mon Justin! You can do it!". Oh wait....

I prefer the boxer briefs. Enough support for me to keep my uglies snugglie but not too restrictive and no boxer bunching. I hate it when I get my underpants in a wad.

Have to bump this and throw my .02 in.
Patagucci makes two different inseam lengths on their boxers. I ordered a few and chose the longer ones. A bit too much sag for good mobility. Returned them for the shorter inseam version, which I have been happy with for the last couple of years.
