- 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!

Still have an older Denali Jacket ~5yrs old or so.
Recently bought the newer hooded version. Same styling but add a hood and the quality/feel of the fleece was also updated.

Still very pricey!! Buy it when it's on sale ONLY!!

It's "adequate" in that is warm but NOT when it's windy! The wind will cut through the jacket and you'll literally freeze!

The purpose of the jacket is insulation so it's best when used with either a shell jacket or under an insulated jacket!

Fleece is very bulky when compared other 300-weight fleece jackets.
It's not "as warm" as other jackets that are made with Windpro or Windblocker fleece materials as those jackets use thinner fleece with a laminating layer to block out the wind, which makes those jackets WARMER!!

The NTF Denali jacket has become too "stylish" esp. amongst teens and college kids! The company is now owned by Vanity Fair!!

There are other jackets available for less that'll block out the wind and keep your warm.

Overall, it's still a good fleece jacket but not when the temps drop below freezing and/or when it's windy!

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)!
