Buffalo is freeee-zing 4 months out of the year, and for a pedestrian like myself, a good pair of long johns can help cut the chill. There's a wee bit of a problem though: for whatever reason, unless you wear tighties underneath, your boys can stick like cling film to the side of your leg.
Saxx Apparel, an innovative underwear company from Canada, said they could solve my problem...
Designed with a thin breathable mesh, Saxx Comfort Side Panels are a design innovation in men's underwear - providing men with contact free comfort, support and a great feel.
The (2) parallel side panels are made of a breathable Nylon/Spandex mesh which contours to the natural shape of men and is entirely flexible. Never restrictive or tight, they offer support when needed and keep men cool and dry.
The Saxx Comfort Side Panels create an unduplicated environment of comfort.
I told Ryan from Saxx that I'd put them through my daily rigors, and he sent me a pair of performance long johns to try out. The twin mesh panels are a bit to get used to, but I soon realized that's the feeling of testicular freedom. I'm somewhat of a hairy guy from the waist down, and the athletic grade moisture wicking material does an excellent job of keeping my undercarriage dry.
Saxx Apparel make the gamut of skivvies, from trunks to boxer briefs to shirts, and in three different styles: everyday, bamboo, and performance. The most popular style is Bamboo, made from its namesake, and are as moisture-wicking as they are eco-friendly. Each style comes with the unique mesh panels for a comfortable no-cling day.
Saxx cost about the $25-$35 range for trunks and boxer briefs, and the long johns are about $50-$70.
