Jockstrap Junkie recommendation: I’ll bet you’re surprised to see the Jockstrap Junkie write a review for a boxer brief; however, being an avid underwear collector, I do have styles other than jockstraps in my collection. Under Armour (UA) is my go-to when it comes to boxer briefs. Although I don’t wear them for working out as I get too hot in them and I get better airflow from a jock (which is why I marked them low, many of you guys will love them for working out), I do wear them quite a bit for daily wear. If you’re a guy with more of an athletic build, the UA BoxerJock scores the best in my book.

UA has been in my underwear drawers for years. I have quite a few pairs of the ‘Original Series’ of the BoxerJock and UA introduced the ‘Tech’ series to the BoxerJock lineup about a year ago. I purchased three of the BoxerJocks online from UA as the sporting goods and department stores don’t stock a variety of UA and I do like a lot of prints. The Tech BoxerJocks have a six-inch leg, logoed waistband; fly front, no seams running along the glutes creating a smooth look, and the synthetic blend. The seamless butt feature is the noticeable difference between the ‘Original’ and ‘Tech’ series. UA does have a lot of different colors and prints to choose from online which makes them quite a bit of fun or classy depending on the mood. Red, White, and Blue patriotic theme was the mood I was in when I ordered these boxer briefs.

As stated in previous reviews, I’m an avid jockstrap wearer; however, there are instances where boxer briefs are more appropriate and/or fit the need better than a jock. If I’m going to be doing a lot of desk work and wearing jeans or slacks, there’s a good chance I’m wearing boxer briefs; otherwise, it’s boxers (gasp!) or jocks. Two of the best qualities of the UA BoxerJock is the fly and the non rolling legs which make them great for wearing under jeans and for sitting all day. Since I usually wear them while sitting a lot at work, the pouch is awesome as the pouch keeps you from squashing the nads.

I prefer the synthetic blend over the cotton blends as the poly/Spandex fabric has a more stretch; which is perfect for those of us who have larger thighs. One of my pet peeves regarding other brands of boxer briefs is that the legs either strangle the thighs or don’t stay in place on the thighs. UA has done well in this construction. The fly and pouch are also awesome features. For those of you who like to have a little lift for the boys; BoxerJocks are going to make you proud. I’m a guy who uses the fly of my boxers and boxer briefs, and UA has hit a home run with an easy access fly that stays closed when it’s supposed to so Willie doesn’t go wandering about. Waistband rolling is almost non existent which is another plus as I do have some love handles that other brands couldn’t handle. 

Large is my normal sizing and UA matched this as UA is very consistent in their sizing. Another feature when looking at UA’s size chart is the aspect they also show the waist and hip sizing. This is a plus for guys who struggle with not being able to find underwear that fits well; kudos to UA for including these measurements. UA also has a wide range of sizing from Small to 3XL which is great for both the big guys as well as the more trim dudes.

For all the boxer brief wearers, UA BoxerJock Tech boxer briefs are a definite win in my books. Although boxer briefs wouldn’t be my first pick for a night on the town, I wouldn’t be ashamed to show them off either. And, for those of you who aren’t into the other styles of underwear as I am, I believe you’ll be impressed with these for working out, daily wear, and even on a date. Definitely add to your gym bag and your undie drawer.

Jockstrap Junkie recommendation: Jack Adams created a nice all-around jockstrap that is both function and fashion. Very few jockstraps I’ve tried over the years hit all of the requirements I have for a jock, and the Nano Jockstrap knocked it out of the park.

This is my second round trying Jack Adams jockstraps. Several years ago, I tried one of their jocks and found out that I didn’t have enough ass to fill it up. Fast forward to today, I’ve done enough squats to justify owning multiple Jack Adams jockstraps. The Nano Jockstrap is a great all-around jockstrap, especially during the hot & humid summer months. The micro-mesh pouch provides excellent support while allowing the bat & balls to breathe. Another great feature of the micro-mesh is that you don’t feel like the boys are getting pushed through a strainer as with other mesh pouch jockstraps.

I wore the Nano Jockstrap while doing everything over the summer, and this jock has been in my normal rotation of jocks, and it gets worn about once a week. Whether you’re working out, mowing the lawn, hanging out & being lazy, or out on the town, Jack Adams hit a home run because you’ll be comfortable in all aspects. The breathability is the biggest asset of this jockstrap.

Micro-mesh is fantastic, being constructed from 67% Lyocell/33% Cotton, you get great support and no swamp nuts. The pouch is single-layered with a center seam as well as an accent stripe in one of the pouch corners along with contrasting piping pouch edge for a nice look. A 1-7/8″ waistband and 1-1/8″ leg straps construct this classic silhouette with the leg straps attaching under the waistband, creating a nice eye-line around the waist. On the waistband, the ‘jack adams’ name is prominently displayed on the front of the jockstrap.

Jack Adams offers the Nano Jockstrap in sizes ranging from Small to X-Large. I purchased a large and the fit is perfect. For those of us with larger glutes, the Nano Jockstrap is awesome because the leg straps don’t dig into your butt cheeks. When wearing all day outside, active, and sweating, the pouch maintains its shape and support. A word of caution for those who don’t have much junk in the trunk, this jockstrap may not be a good fit as the leg straps may sag on you.

The Jack Adams Nano Jockstrap is a nice addition to the underwear drawer. Whether you wear it in the bedroom, the boardroom, or the gym, you won’t be disappointed.

Pros: Great novelty & fun branding, classic cut, comfortable

Jockstrap Junkie recommendation: If you like meat, add some “prime beef” to your underwear drawer. All puns intended.

As a junkie of underwear, especially jockstraps, and also have a bit of humor in my personality, I purchased the Meat Classic Jockstraps purely for the novelty value. The waistband has “Meat” on the front and “Prime Beef” on the back of the waistband. The writing makes for a fun conversation jockstrap. I did take a gamble with sizing on this jockstrap, which I will discuss a bit later in this review; otherwise, this jock didn’t disappoint on the novelty factors.

Per my usual routine, I give a jockstrap an all-around wearing. I’m not a fan for wearing the Meat Classic Jockstrap for working out. My beef is that the pouch doesn’t breathe well due to the double lining. One of my main reasons for wearing a jock is for breathability. However, the pouch is very comfortable, has ample support, keeps form, and I would wear for a night out, lounging around, or every day.

For a novelty brand, I was expecting the quality to be “choice” however, Meat Underwear came thru, and “prime” is what I got. This was a pleasant surprise. The nylon/Spandex blend makes for a nice smooth finish on the pouch, the waistband is a soft material, and the leg straps don’t cut into the rump or hammies. I would describe the silhouette of this jock as a classic cut where the leg straps connect to the waistband at the hip, and the pouch covers the sausage & meatballs. Pouch support is pretty standard, no extra lift features, and the double finish seam creates a nice finish both inside and outside of the pouch.

Jockstrap Stats
Waistband 1-3/4″
Leg straps 1.”
Material 86% Nylon
14% Spandex
Silhouette Classic
Pouch Double Lined
Center Seam
Sizes S/M 28″ – 34″
L/XL 36″ – 42″

Here’s where I gambled and lost on the first try. With the sizing of S/M is 28″ – 34″, I thought I’d try the S/M as I have a 34″ waist. I was wrong as the sizing is close to the lower end of the range; therefore, my second order was the L/XL, and they do fit like I would expect a large waist jockstrap to fit. Guys on the XL spectrum, you will probably have problems with these jockstraps running too small.

If you like a bit of fun in your underwear drawer, get you some Meat! Whether your lean or a bit more marbled, these will definitely be a fun conversation piece. Life is meant to be fun, so go for it!

Pros: Silky smooth finish, the pouch is form fitting but has ample stretch, simple color scheme

Cons: Overpriced, double lined pouch doesn’t let jewels breathe well, website claims made in Italy but jockstrap tag shows the country of manufacture to be Bosnia Erzegovina (minor factoid; however, if you’re going to taut something on the website, make sure it’s accurate)

Recommendation: No regrets on this purchase, although the pocketbook squealed a bit. The Charlie Fitness Microfiber Jockstrap is a jock that will be worn regularly from my collection and has a great fit and feel. If you have the extra cash, splurge.

One of the things I’m changing up in my underwear drawer is to try some new brands in 2019. Charlie by MZ is a brand that I”m brand new to and thought Charlie would be a brand to start broadening my underwear horizons. I purchased the Fitness Jockstrap Black Microfiber, and was a bit anxious about the purchase as $38 is the most I’ve ever paid for a jockstrap but also really wanting to try something new.

To give the Charlie jockstrap a proper review, I did put this jockstrap into the weekly rotation for the past eight weeks. The Charlie jockstrap experienced sleep, cardio, lifting, daily wear, and just lounging around. Microfiber/Spandex construction has a fantastic feel as it’s very smooth and the pouch has a nice snug feel, but the spandex gives some nice stretch when necessary. Double layered microfiber pouches don’t breathe well, which is why I don’t recommend wearing it for cardio; unless, you want the jewels to be soggy from sweat. However, I did like this jock for lifting, making sure it was worn on at least one leg day. One of the nice attributes to the microfiber pouch is that the jewels don’t flop around, but don’t feel constrained either.

As mentioned before, this Charlie jockstrap has a double lined, center seam, microfiber pouch with a composition of 90% nylon and 10% spandex. The waistband is 1-5/8” wide, and the leg straps are 3/4” wide. The leg straps and waistband don’t roll, which is always a positive and the leg straps don’t dig into your ass. I would classify this as a traditional cut where the leg straps on the side of the hips. The construction is excellent, and I put it on par with C-IN2, aussieBum, and Pump.

I purchased a Large which corresponds accurately in Charlie’s size chart, and it fits perfect. Since this is my first Charlie purchase, I don’t have any basis for consistency in their sizing like I do in other brands. Over the two months of wear, no stretching or deforming, and that’s a positive.

Although I rated the Charlie jockstrap with a 9.8 rating, I’m mixed on a full recommendation for this jockstrap. Purely on the quality aspects, it performs as advertised; however, the price is too high when compared to other brands. So, if you have $38 to spend, by all means, get the Charlie by MZ Microfiber Jockstrap; if your budget doesn’t allow for the splurge, catch some sales of several of the other mainline brands, and you’ll be equally satisfied.

Pros: Pouch lift, athletic styling, colors

Cons: Not a problem for me, but well endowed guys will find the pouch is a bit small and may have a challenging stuffing the sausage & meatballs in them; also, with a double lined cotton pouch, you will have sweaty balls after a workout.

Recommendation: the aussieBum WonderJock Pro (WJ Pro) is a great add to anyone’s collection for price, style, fit, and function. It says a lot when I ‘the Jockstrap Junkie’ goes back for repeat purchase instead of just moving on to the next brand/style. Hopefully, aussieBum never retires the WJ Pro!

I purchased my first WJ Pro in February of 2016 and still wear them today. The elastic is finally wearing out on the legstraps, so I just bought a coupler more of the WJ Pro to replenish. I’ve been an aussieBum customer for several years and have thoroughly enjoyed aussieBum’s products with only a few misses (I’ll review the Tonka Jockstrap another time). To say I have a history with aussieBum is an understatement as my collection includes aussieBum’s WJ Air, Lasher, Flashr, Samurai, Enlarge It, and Hunk jockstraps. I was a bit skeptical on the enhancement feature; however it’s proven to be a functional asset for me.

Because I’ve been wearing the WJ Pro for several years, I’ve had the opportunity to wear these jockstraps for sleeping, daily wear, lifting, throwing, cardio, and lounging around. The aussieBum WJ Pro is a great all around jockstrap. One of the great benefits of the ‘Pouch Enhancing Technology’ is when I’m on the rowing machine as it keeps the sausage & meatballs out of the way of my thighs. Nobody likes flattened meatballs, or they would have ordered a hamburger.

A composition of 90% cotton and 10% spandex make the WJ Pro. The waistband has a nice width of 1-1/2” and the legstraps have a width of 1-1/4”. The legstraps attach to the waistband in the traditional positions and I would consider this to be a low rise on the hips and front. The pouch’s ‘Pouch Enhancing Technology’ & ‘Free Swing Boost’ make for an interesting fit as everything is contained snugly, but also pronounced out front. For those not familiar with ‘Pouch Enhancing Technology, it’s simply a fabric gusset going horizontally in the interior of the pouch where one places his sausage & meatballs over the gusset into the pouch for a lifting effect. The construction quality is also top notch with the pouch being double stitched and the center seam in the pouch is smooth.

Large is the size I purchased and is the norm for me in aussieBum jockstraps which I find their size chart runs on point for their jockstraps. Other styles in aussieBum I switch it up between large and extra-large and that’s due to thigh size, not waist.  

aussieBum is a staple in my jockstrap drawer and I highly recommend trying out aussieBum, especially their WJ Pro jockstraps. The WJ Pro and its cousin the WJ Air are worth the add to your collection. They’re fun, stylish, but still have that athletic look & feel. Plus, they make my sausage look a little plumper!
