So these are woollen boxer shorts, how unusual.



Merino is pitched as anti-bacterial, so useful for multi-day hikes.
Also they are warm, so good for cool weather where full length thermals would be too warm.

Nah....It's actually normal...The man made made material ones are the unusual type but are so common people believe they are the norm.....Cotton ones hold sweat...man made ones cause the sweat to dribble all over your groin creating moist warn air & a higher risk of infection....Wool is soft, warn & breathable so no sweaty groin.
HOT deal btw.

It also great in the warm as it's breathable.

Wool is not as tightly woven as man made, and feels looser. However after a few days these still keep their shape. I'm 34in and got some medium and they work ok, but I'm getting another small to check out. Bear in mind that return are free in store (not sure about underwear)

Edit: Tried the small, and they are a little too restrictive.

I love 100% merino stuff as it really keeps the body temperature even in cold and hot conditions but not sure what it'd be like if mixed with polyester.

70% Wool (Merino), 30% Polyester
Useful for parking buses and making walls.
