I really want to like these boxers except for one thing. First, I'll start by saying that mine are form fitting and longer than most boxers. These are two traits that I look for in boxer briefs, especially for active endeavors in cool to cold conditions - like hunting - where I want support and warmth. There are plenty of other wool boxer briefs out there. If you want underwear that rides up your thighs like the mid length boxers then you have lots of options. These boxers are almost perfect, except the one thing I wish was different about these is the fly - it is impossible to use because it is very tight. I won't go into too much detail, but basically, it's hard to get your junk out through the fly. I'm not going to undo my pack and belt and drop my pants every time I need to take a leak. Until something changes with this one design flaw, I'll hold off on purchasing a second (or third) pair.

I thought I'd put a couple of years behind me before I would put in a review. I hunted about 50 days over the last 2 years and these are the best. I tried them against other Merino Boxers (e.g.First Lite) and these outperformed them all. Extremely comfortable and don't break down like others.

I purchased these chones exclusively for hunting, but they have 365 comfort. I am really impressed with quality and construction, but thats what to expect from Sitka! The benefits of merino (anti-microbial and sweat wicking) make these the best boxer briefs on the market. I am really considering getting enough boxer briefs for each day of the week.

Hey Nick - Thanks for reaching out and addressing your concerns. Sounds like our Merino Boxers are not the right fit, in the literal sense as well as our intent. The fit; I have experienced the same in terms of bagginess in certain areas. I tried the next size down and was a perfect fit. Design intent: They are designed to be long, longer than normal boxers. The idea is for more support around the thighs and to help dissipate more moisture. Please understand they are designed to be worn with pants. Have you looked at our Core Boxer? Knowing it's not Merino it may not be your answer but works great at wicking and is a traditional length. Give us a call to discuss a few options - 877.748.5247

I am a huge fan of merino wool and love all the properties it offers for scent control and moisture wick. These boxers are really nice, but unfortunately there are some major flaws I have found that make me not want to buy more. To start, I don't know who designed the legs to these, but when I put them on they go all the way down to my knees. This is inconvenient for me because if you wear shorts, you have to ride them up. While the legs will be taught, other parts of the boxers will be baggy, so sweat accumulates more in these regions. Also, after I ride them higher than usual to get them about mid-thigh level, they start to fall down and go back to my knees. This is really a bother to me because when I walk around I find myself pulling them up more than enjoying what I'm doing at the moment. These are quality boxers don't get me wrong, but the legs are about 5" too long, and they sag really badly for me. So if you don't mind pulling up the legs every 30 seconds these are for you.
