Half-Naked Gear Review | ExOfficio Boxers.

By Posted in - Budget Travel & Featured Post & Travel Gear on January 3rd, 2011

Caught at the 1st Annual Plymouth Rock Polar Bear Plunge without a bathing suit, Randy chose to take the swim in his ExOfficio boxers. In our third installment of the Half-Naked Gear Review (previously the 90 Second Gear Review), Randy reviews his ExOfficio underwear before running valiantly into the 38 degree Cape Cod Bay.

The Good: Treated with Aegis Microbe Shield, The Give-N-Go Boxer helps keep odor-causing bacteria in check . Couple that with its quick drying, moisture wicking material as well as no tag, and it makes you wonder why Michael Jordan still wears Hanes.

The Bad: At $25 a pair, ExOfficio’s Give-N-Go underwear many not seem like the most budget friendly option; however, when you consider the benefits of having only 2-3 pair of underwear in your bag that are quick drying and perfect for any climate, the ExOfficios are hard not to recommend. After three countries, and more than a year of use, my three pair (now the only underwear I own) show no signs of wear or elastic and stitching breakdown. If you are on a tight budget, Magellans.com carries ExOfficio underwear for a few dollars cheaper.

The Ugly: Beth says me in my green (deep palm) Give-N-Go Briefs. But hey, what guy doesn’t need a little support now and then?

Bonus Tip: We recycled the sleeve the ExOfficio underwear came in by using it as a place to store our travel receipts.
