To start, yes, these do have a fly. Differences between these boxers and the under armour boxers: 1) UA has a button on the fly, these do not, 2) the while both use a quick dry material, the UA material feels much silkier and thinner than the material on the ex Officio.

There are many differences between the Under Armour Boxer Jock and the Under Armour compression short. 1. Material: The boxer jock's material is thinner and stretchier than the compression short. 2. Fit: The boxer jock is meant to be fit tight against the skin, but the compression short is much tighter in the thighs (because that is what compression shorts do). 3. Functional Fly: The boxer jock has one, the compression short does not. 4. Length: A normal length pair of the compression shorts are 2-3 inches longer in the leg than the normal length boxer jock.

As for the Nike compression short, I have no clue.

I wanted to like these boxers, I really did. The material is very soft and stretchy and warm. But, due to the cut, and the design of the fly, things tend to pop out. I read wgtech's review and thought that maybe his problem was due to the fact that he has a 34" waist and bought a small. Well, I have a 33" waist and I got a medium, but I had the same problem. In other ways, these fit fine, but as soon as I my pace moves beyond a leisurely walk, the fly hole opens right up and things start needing constant adjusting. I cannot recommend these at all.

Over all: This zip up is great. It is very soft and light weight. It is not at all wind-proof, but it is nice for layering and pretty stylish. It is super duper comfortable, the hood is a good size (not one of those massive hoods that some hoodys have), and the internal thumbholes on the sleeves are a great addition.

Color: Some reviewers said that the Denim Color was purple, but the one I got was similar to the pictured color. Maybe a bit more grayish blue. Also the Graphite is basically black. Or at least the darkest gray ever.

Fit: I am one of those people who is always in-between sizes (5'8" 155) so I ordered a medium and a large. The medium fit well, but only if I was wearing a t-shirt underneath. Anything else and it is too snug. The large was more like a jacket, and a bit longer. I kept the medium because I plan to wear it as a light jacket with only a T underneath. But they do seem to run a bit small, so if you are in between sizes and you don't like your stuff to be tight, go a size up.

This bag is great. I compared it with many others, and it truly seems to be the best designed, the most durable, and the most inline with my style tastes of all the laptop messenger bags. The corduroy laptop pocket is great, and there is still ample room for a few text books and a binder.

Some people complain that there are no exterior pockets, but I think that is a good thing, because there is less to snag if you are wearing the bag while on a bike. Also, there is ample room to toss a water bottle inside the bag, so an exterior pocket is unnecessary.

Note: Everything written above is in reference to the Medium size.



Cons: The Velcro is annoying. If you are at a library try to keep opening and closing the bag to a minimum.
Size. The large is waaay too big. See my review of the Northface Ruckus (same exact size as a Large Timbuk2 Laptop Messenger) for a description of what I mean.

Meh. The bag is fine. Comparable in size to the Large size Timbuk2, and cheaper, and sans Velcro (which is nice). But as the other reviews imply, this bag is very large. Too large I would say. I'm 5'8 160lbs, and the bag was wider than me when on my back. If I were walking down the aisle of an airplane, and I had this thing loaded up and over my shoulder, it would probably hit people on both sides as I walked past them.

In conclusion: The construction of the Timbuk2 seems to be a bit nicer and better thought out, but, not $100 better thought out. So, if you need a huge bag (I fit my 15inch laptop, 3 law school text books, a 3 inch binder, and still had room to toss in a pair of sneakers and gym clothes), and you don't have the money to burn on the Timbuk2, then this bag will do you fine. Although, I would imagine that actually carrying this thing around while it is fully loaded would be quite cruel to your shoulder.

I agree with the review right below this one. Poor fit, too low riding, and the seams don't give enough. The material itself is fine, but the fit is just no good. ExOfficios, under armour, smartwool, and mountain hardware all make boxer briefs that perform just as well but fit much more comfortably.
