- It's basically the boxer jock which is more of a brief!- Be careful as the size is Form fitting!- This means that skinny people order their true size while "average" males order 1 size UP (i.e. size 36 is large but you better order size XL)!- It fits comfortable mostly when it fits correctly and you don't feel it.- It's relatively EXPENSIVE considering that other makers' Cotton versions sell for at least HALF the price!- Remember: boxer shorts do NOT provide support during strenuous conditions like running! Briefs (i.e. boxer briefs) DO!- Some people online already complain that the longer versions DO have the lengths run up!

- Bought these by accident and won't buy another pair since I prefer briefs over boxer shorts!
- It's nice and is true to fit unlike the boxer jock which I had to size UP one size!
- Because it's more of a shorts, it should NOT be worn under strenuous conditions that REQUIRE SUPPORT (i.e. running or martial arts); those types of activities are meant for briefs (i.e. boxer jocks).
- It's good for casual wearing but really do NOT see the need to wear boxer shorts!
- It's relatively EXPENSIVE for performance boxers when regular Cotton boxers are at least HALF the price!
- REMEMBER: boxer shorts do NOT offer support so why use them for sports?!
- Lastly, NO, despite what backcountry.com states, it is NOT a relaxed fit as even Under Armour states that it's Form Fitting but not as much as the compression type!!

- These boxer jocks are a hybrid between briefs and boxer shorts!
- They are comfortable but... the sizing is a MAJOR problem as you can NOT try them on beforehand!
- I wear a mens large (36) but had to return mine for an XL because the boxer jocks are "fitted" which means that it's somewhat close to the skin, but not as tight as the compression versions!
- IF you're skinny, then it's true to fit; If you're the "average" male, then you "should" size UP one size!
- It's lightweight and comfortable once it fits; doesn't run up (3" version) and feels more like briefs and adds support where you need it!
- YES, it's relatively EXPENSIVE but ALL Under Armour clothing IS EXPENSIVE!
- If you work out much, then you should consider upgrading your underwear like me!
- Personally, I prefer briefs as boxer shorts do NOT provide support when you're active (i.e. running or performing martial arts).
- 3 of 5 stars because of its relatively high price and lousy sizing!

Very warm jacket though it could've been better with a slightly insulated stowaway hood and a fleece-lined neck warmer.

The hand-warmer pockets aren't lined but it behind an insulated section so hands do keep warm, to an extent. Wear gloves!

It has a stow-away pocket on the inner left size and would have been better with a second pocket on the inner right side!

It's still PRICEY, but that' typical of ALL TNF clothing!

Very few other jackets come close (i.e. Patagonia's down jackets)!
