Can underwear really be life-changing? It can be after you try on your first pair of SAXX.
Let’s face it, there are a lot of companies out there who claim that they have the most comfortable men’s underwear ever.
The reality is, a lot of them are uncomfortable to walk in, hot and sweaty, ride up, slide down, itch, fall apart, fail at odor control, refuse to dry, encourage chafing, and so on.
You really do get what you pay for, but truth be told, even some of the more “premium brands” have issues.
When I heard SAXX’s underwear was life changing I decided to overcome my skepticism, take a leap of faith, and finally review SAXX first hand. With a full week s worth of underwear in hand and a return guarantee to back up my decision, I was going to put SAXX to the ultimate test.
Man, am I glad I did!
If you want to know what it feels like to wear nothing at all without going commando, SAXX is as close as you’re going to get. The comfort, the breathability, the flexibility, the sack support, moisture wicking, and softness is out of this world.
If you’re still buying standard cotton men’s underwear, you know the ones that come in the packs, or if you’re sucked in by brands like CK’s marketing efforts, do yourself a favor and empty everything in your underwear drawer. Slide into a pair of SAXX and its game over.
What makes SAXX the most comfortable men’s underwear?
In 2006, Trent Kitsch, the founder of SAXX spent a day enjoying the wonders of chafing thanks to a cold, clammy ocean suit. He knew there was a better way, and so he went on a mission to discover it. Trent imagined a catcher’s mitt hammock design, only flipped upside down. He relayed the idea to a seamstress and designer and began to perfect the fit. The panel fabric hammock separated balls from the legs, and after 14 prototypes the perfection of the Ballpark Pouch came to life.
BallPark Pouch: It’s what gives you that contact-free support and keeps everything exactly where it belongs. Mesh panels mean no skin on skin friction, while zero exposed stitching mean chafe-free comfort.
Flat Out Seams: Raise-thread seam against the body sucks! That’s why SAXX reversed the conventional idea and put the softer and flatter seams inward for chafe-free comfort.
Three-D Fit: Nine panels of fabric create a 3D shaping around the quads, hamstrings, thighs, and flutes. The result is the perfect fit. One that’s snug, flexible and feels as natural as it’s ever going to get.
Quality technical fabrics: Moda, viscose, nylon, merino wool, cotton, spandex with polyester, etc. When it comes to pairing the right fabrics for the right activities, SAXX nails it.
My top 6 personal favorite SAXX products:
SAXX Blacksheep Tight Underwear
Full leg comfort with the warmth of premium Merino wool. From walks outdoors in just above freezing conditions to your typical indoor office temperatures, Blacksheep tights feel just right. With the addition of 5% spandex jersey, these tights offer plenty of flexibility and move along with your body. To make things even more comfortable, you’ll find an anti-roll moisture wicking jacquard waistband, patented ballpark pouch, and non-chafing flat out seams.
SAXX Blacksheep Boxer Brief Underwear
When you want added warmth but don’t want to go with a full leg tight, the Blacksheep Boxer Briefs are the answer. Spandex gives them plenty of flexibility while Merino wool offers great warmth for those colder days.
SAXX Kinetic Tight Underwear
For hard workouts and long endurance runs it doesn’t get much better than the semi-compression fit of SAXX’s kinetic tights. With ultra-fast drying performance, these tights handle moisture like a champ. The stretch micromesh fabric (90% nylon and 10% spandex) feels extremely natural and lightweight.
SAXX Kinetic Long Leg Underwear
If I had to choose a favorite pair of underwear for the gym, SAXX’s Kinetic long leg would easily be the winner. The moisture-wicking performance is extraordinary while the comfort is downright luxurious.
SAXX Thermoflyte Long Leg Underwear
When you put on the Thermoflyte long leg you’ll notice they are a considerably thicker than the other variations of underwear SAXX offers. The mid-weight performance thermal layer still retains plenty of comfort yet, delivers big on warmth in colder conditions. For fall camping and backpacking, it doesn’t get much better than these.
SAXX Vibe Underwear
I have to say, I was rather surprised by the SAXX Vibe Boxer Briefs. I was expecting them to just not as good as the rest of SAXX’s line given their lower price point. After trying them on, they quickly became my favorite SAXX pair. For everyday underwear, nothing else even comes close. The construction is extremely soft, think silky smooth soft. It’s as close to underwear heaven as you’re going to get.
In addition to the softness, you also get plenty of breathability and a snug yet, flexible fit.
Final words on my SAXX underwear review
Ultimately, you’re probably wondering is SAXX the most comfortable men’s underwear ever? Is it worth the premium price tag? Are you really getting the best of the best? Should you raid your underwear drawer and replace it all with SAXX?
My answer to all of those questions is yes!
But don’t just take my word for it, try on your first pair and I’m sure you’ll be just as impressed as I am.
