/ Wicking underwear
As I mentioned in another thread, I'm a huge fan of the Lowe Alpine 'dry flo' wicking pants. Since they were discontinued I've been trying to find an alternative to these.
Just wondered if anyone had any suggestions. I tried Paramo but the material is super thin and the fit isn't as good kind of loose. Tried Under Armour, again the material was very very thin and they don't have proper 'legs' so they have very poor ...um... containment shall we say. Tried Devold merino underwear, but since then have eliminated merio as a suitable material, it doesn't last long at all. I've ordered some Helly Hansen pants to try out but they've not arrive yet.
I'm looking for something that contains everything. I want the fabric to not be flimsy like most of the wicking underwear out there. I don't want huge leg lengths either.
Why did Lowe Alpine stop making these damn it!
Lowe-Alpine are just launching their new apparel range.
There are lots of great synthetic base layers out there, some that don't smell as well.
I also have merino base layers and despite lots of use and hot washes they are still going strong.
Got two pairs of Arcteryx boxers in the Outside sale for winter this year, very well cut, supportive and wicked well.
Merino boxers here, used to have HH ones and loved them.
Also have some old Patagonia ones that I would kill for a few more pairs of, but they are no longer made. Tempted by the RAB MeCo ones to see if they carry the mix of lack of smells from Merino and coconut for....erm...taste?
How disappointing. I thought that was wicked underwear for a moment :)
I like the ExOfficio stuff - range of briefs and boxers http://www.orvis.co.uk/store/product.aspx?pf_id=57K8

It could be worse Gordon; it might have been wicker underwear.
have you tried venting?
Wowzers that's great news!
I shall bide my time, hopefully they'll be good, then I can buy a truckload of them.
Definitely going to get another pair at some point: http://www.ultralightoutdoorgear.co.uk/rab_meco_120_boxer.html
Ditto. Used for day to day and active use. I use the 'hipsters', rather than the trunks.
Those longer "sport base layer ones" are awesome.
As a slightly larger chap (36" waist) I find them awesome to keep the old chaffing at bay when sweating my lardy arse off.
Does it suck it off?
