When you only want to pack one pair of underwear, ExOfficio’s Give-N-Go boxers are a good choice.
At a time when everyone is looking to save as much weight as possible, packing only one pair of performance underwear may sound a bit drastic. But aside from it sounding like a potentially smelly proposition, ExOfficio’s Give-N-Go boxers offer features that may allow you the ability to go light, but definitely not commando-style.
The first thing you need to know about the Give-N-Go boxers is that they are extremely comfortable. The boxers are made from stretchable 94 percent Nylon and 6 percent Lycra Spandex. The material is also treated with Ageis Microbe Shield which controls odor causing bacteria. But if you’ve worn the boxers for a couple of days, you can easily wash them in a sink or tub and they’ll dry in about two hours.
The wide elastic waist band is very comfortable, yet keeps the boxers in place. We also liked that the boxers worked well to wick away moisture and remained breathable during long hikes and trail runs. We only work the boxers for a few days, but even though they didn’t smell or seem gross to wear, we washed them in the sink with mild soap and water. Our boxers dried in about one hour and 45 minutes.
ExOfficio claims testers have worn the boxers for six weeks with occasional washings in sinks during various travel experiences. While this may be a bit extreme, the boxers did feel like they could hold up for an entire trip, but what do you do while they’re drying?
Fortunately ExOfficio offers the Give-N-Go underwear in a variety of styles and colors. For men, they’re available in a boxer-brief (as tested), but also in a boxer, brief and sport brief. For women, a full range and style of bottoms, tops and tanks are available. For more information, visit www.exofficio.com.
