Works wonders This product works exactly they way we were hoping it would, draws moisture away from the skin and for you ladies out there there are no seams in the wrong places so it's smooth riding all the way. August 4, 2014
Keeps you cool These "boxer" type shorts do the same as the shirt, keeps you cool. Added benefit? Helps keep "everything" in place. February 11, 2014
Awesome sorts Probably the most comfortable piece of underwear I've ever worn. It's awesome that you can rinse these out and they're fresh to wear the next day. July 29, 2013
Good base layer I've only worn them a few times so I can't speak to durability. They are comfortable even in warmer weather. As good as under armour and a bit cheaper too. June 10, 2013
Very nice Gonna Be nice on long hot days. Fit is good and snug. I'll see how durable they are. Seem good at this point. October 21, 2012
Base layer shorts Very comfortable. As good as Under Armor at a much better price. They stay put, do not ride up and flow a good amount of air, even under jeans. I'll buy again. July 16, 2012
Moisture-wicking underwear that works I've worn these a few times now, one time in 100+ F weather. I have to say that these shorts work pretty well. Do I think these are so much better than X other brand? No, I'm sure under armour, alpinestars, and others all make base-wear that is just as good. These do cost half the price of some of the others though. Sizing is the same as boxer briefs. No issues with them so far. Sorry, no pictures for you. July 9, 2012
Does what it advertises I have been trying to find a solution to Summertime Hot Butt for months. I tried my old bicycle riding shorts with chamois pad, regular cotton briefs, no underwear with nylon summer weight pants, and finally in desperation tried a pair of these. They Worked!!! I have now ridden up to 8 hours in temps to 90 degrees with them, under nylon summerweight pants. They transport most of the moisture out of the seat area, don't get sticky, and the seams are unnoticeable. The only drawback is that they make going to the bathroom a bit awkward since they have no fly, but with all the other fussing I have to do with chaps, kidney belt, pants, etc., that isn't a big deal. Going from a maximum of 2 hours to 8 hours with comfort is worth it. I'm getting two more pairs! July 19, 2011
