I usually don't like boxer-jocks because I have huge quads and they're all skin tight and the legs ride up. Ex-Offico boxers are Ok, but need a little stretching after the dryer to fit me correctly. I saw these at the grand opening sale of a local sporting goods store, and decided to try out a pair of XXL. Loved 'em, and went back to get more a few days later. The fabric is thin but tough, and easily stretches to fit larger legs without that compression short feeling, and still lets the boys get some air without riding up or feeling like a speedo. There is a flap in front, but the thin fabric keeps it from feeling like a cod-piece. For me the waistband is just where I like it at the top of my hips. UA's plain boxers have a 4" inseam and seem like they're made to sit in your arm-pits, so these are a definite improvement. I also bought a pair of the M series mesh shorts, and those fit more like compression shorts since they don't have as much give to them.

I'm 6'5" and usually brush 270lbs. This was one of the few hammocks I could find that had a weight rating over 250lbs, and didn't have horrible reviews. I was skeptical at first, but after I took mine camping I went back online and bought the whole "One-Link" system. This hammock not only held my big 'ol butt up in the air (after some creaks and groans from the suspension system settling), but was more than long enough for me to relax comfortably with a camp pillow. I stayed in it for over 4 hours, rocking and reading, and never felt like I was going to get dropped. The only downfall to this hammock is that the fabric isn't wind-proof, so for a cool windy day you might want to lay a blanket between you and the hammock. Customer service at Backcountry and ENO's website are both fantastic as well.
