I am not the best person on Twitter. I have a few accounts I have to keep up with so I”m not always on, I’m trying to be better for UNB! I ran across Helux Gear on Twitter. I looked at their site and they are doing something new in the world of mens underwear. They have a pouch that is made like a double helix. Yup the pouch sort of wraps around to form a fly in the pouch
When I first saw this on their site it looked like it could be really cool or come off bad. So when they offered to send me some I jumped at the chance. I got to give these a test run and was super excited. The package came and it has three pairs in it! The first pair I will review is Brief.
I will say I loved the light blue color. It’s almost a sky blue in color. The pair put me in a really good mood! I slid it on and at first I was like. HUH? Its not a pouch I was accustomed too. It seemed to be a little lower. But with that said, when i talked to them they said the first batch didn’t have the exact pouch they wanted. So I kept that in mind when I put them on.
After a second I figured out to adjust myself in them and they fit pretty well. Granted I still felt a bit wonky in them, but I made me wonder if the day went on would it hold up.
The pouch, as many of you know is the most important factor for me. It can make a or break a far for me. So when you create a new pouch I am instantly interested and hope it lives up. After I got positioned in them and noticed it was a bit lower than i normally like. It didn’t constrict or bind me like I thought it may but felt like a normal pouch. As the day went on, I didn’t notice it was any different.
The pouch also is very functional. I know we have many readers who hate a fly in underwear. So when I got home I had to see how it worked. The fly is held in place by elastic. It’s not binding or cut off any circulation. I pulled the elastic on the pouch to the side and it was easier than most fly to use. I put it back in place and hoped it would go back in place. A little adjustment was needed but it held everything in place. I really like the new innovative design.
The sizing was pretty good. I wear a size 38 was it right now and the large in the brand run 36-38. It’s pretty standard sizing as you would expect. The fit was pretty good to me so I doubt you will have issues with sizing if you get a pair. The waistband fit great and other than the pouch feeling wonky to begin with, it was a great pair that held up pretty well throughout the day.
