I am sort of a connoisseur of high-end performance boxers. I feel its one of the things you should really spend a little extra money on (great quality of life improvement). Between these, my Ex-Officios, and my Under Armours... I think these are my favorite. They are the lightest and the most comfy. They are packaged like an apple product. I don't think I've ever got boxers that were in a nice, full-color box (not that it matters). Wore them to work, worked out after, grabbed them the next morning (after a quick smell test), and wore them again - no odor at all. The only bad things; have a little bit of a bunching issue on only one of my legs (not sure why) and there is no fly on these (which I thought was very weird). Made for an interesting first trip to the urinal.
