When I was in Las Vegas I got a sample pair of Saxx which I then put in my bag, brought home and promptly forgot about them until I finally unpacked a more than a month later.  I know many people think when you go to Magic and Curve, you get tons of underwear to bring back home, but the opposite is true.  Shows like these are designed for buyers and very few companies actually give out samples.  Saxx is the only company I got a pair from this year.

The first thing I noticed is Saxx’s continued design innovation.  This new design is made for guys who are active in sports, hiking and other vigorous activities where chafing is a concern and comfort is a must.  However, when you first see it you will be going “HUH?” and will think there is no way this is going to work.  But yet, it does work and works quite well.  The pair has a lining that is perfect for an active guy.

Not all underwear is made alike, especially for the activities listed above.  Not only does the design help prevent chaffing but it also wicks moisture away.  If you are like me and are active, the last thing you want is wet underwear.

I didn’t wear these doing anything active—just normal daily activities.  It still amazes me how well they fit.  I love a pouch in my underwear and while this pair doesn’t have a traditional pouch, everything is still held together nicely .The construction is top notch and I had no issues with the qaulity.  I have a friend who’s an HVAC technician and he got some of this same pair and loves them for working. So if you are in an active job or do a lot of activities, check out Saxx.

What I liked:

  • It’s a really innovative design for men’s underwear
  • They make a really great pair of underwear

What I didn’t Like:

  • Could have been a bit tighter, I prefer boxer briefs that are tight
  • Just available in black and white right now. I am looking forward to more colors
