Description

When a thong just won’t cut it, don the Stoic Merino Boy Boxer.

There's nothing manly about the Stoic Women's Merino Boy Boxer, except maybe the inspiration behind the cut. This short is designed to provide full coverage and the comfort you need to hit the skin trail or single-track in spring. Flat stitching and stretch fabric are ideal for high-output activities, while the stylish side panels add a feminine touch. Merino wool resists odor and transfers moisture vapor away from your skin, making the Stoic Merino Boy Boxer ideal for active women.

Ditto: Poor Waistband Design

I've owned 5 pairs of these shorts and I love them, but after one washing, the elastic in the waistband rolls and folds. Such a disappointing flaw in an otherwise perfect wool boy short. PLEASE REDESIGN!

Poor Waistband design

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Theses wool boy shorts have a real problem with the waist band twisting making them very uncomfortable. I won't wear them on a hike. I am going to try and see if I can do something with my sewing skills to fix them. I would not recommend these to anyone who wants seamless active comfort on the trail.

Wanted in Every Color

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I purchased these with the thought that maybe, just maybe I could find some comfy shorts for those long hikes that make you want to take your pants off after you've been on a solid incline for the better part of your day. These are that, and so much more.

I read the issues people were having with the waist band before I washed these, so I went ahead and sewed a few stitches here and there throughout the band and have not experienced the twist.

Lookin Good

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I have tried these as a wool upgrade from the Patagonia active boy short. I am pleased with them so far. I was hoping that the leg of the boxer would be a little longer, but still far better then the run of the mill underwear. I really enjoy how light weight these feel and how soft. Also the seams are placed really well so that they don't chafe. I am looking forward to putting these through the ringer!

Seem to be good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Nothing negative to say. Don't get them too small, the leg holes are a bit tight on me, but not to the point of discomfort.

Great base layer.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I use these boy shorts as a base layer under tights while winter running or skiing. They really help keep the buns warmer. I can't make it through the winter without them! I found the fit to run true to size. I am 5'2" and 107 pounds and bought the XS.

did you ever fix the waist band issue? I bought several pairs of these on sale a few years back and at the time all of the reviews were complaining about the waste band elastic getting twisted...all but one of mind did twist up and fold in all of the most annoying ways...considering rebuying now that mine have worn out--but won't if the waste band is still an issue!

Best Answer Responded on

I don't think they fixed it as i just washed mine yesterday and sure enough it twisted. The really bad part is you simply can not untwist it. I suppose you could if you cut it open but it might ruin them

Very soft and comfy!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

The material of these is really soft, and the cut is perfect! They're not too tight on my hips, but they don't seem to move, either. I wear them to bed, since they are so comfortable and lightweight. Waistband does twist, but it's easy to correct and not a problem.

most amazing!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

please make more of these and more colors, forever, please. i have walked, run, cycled, climbed and they are virtually wedgie free. i alternated between two pairs and they dry in a day after hand washing. so comfortable. and cute to boot.

Buy These!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I absolutely love these underwear. I bought two pairs and only one of them has ever had a problem with the waistband turning (the grey pair twists but the black pair doesn't). No big deal to untwist and the burden is nothing compared to the awesomeness of wearing these all day. I've used them on multi-day backpacking trips and never had odor issues. They've been tossed in the dryer a few times on accident and no major shrinkage--maybe a little smaller but are still comfortable. Seriously, these are the best.

Responded on

I have noticed that the waistband on my grey pair twists, too. Thinking about buying another pair, since they're great otherwise. What is different about the black that they don't twist? Or do you think it's just a fluke? Thanks.

Responded on

They appear identical! Possibly just a fluke but it would be interesting to see if others have noticed the same...

The BEST underwear invented!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

5'9" 150 and under. I tried M and S, M was the best fit. I have looked for the perfect boxer/boyshort for years with no luck unitl now! The best underwear ever invented!! Here's the low down.
If you sleep in them they will be slightly streched by morning. Merino yes, sweaty no. The waist band did twist in mine during the first wash but has been fine since. My thought on fixing the twist was to throw them under the sewing machine for a couple zips on each and walla. No more twisting. They don't bunch, they don't ride up but the waist band does have a bit of material and I find that under certain pants (where the wiast rise is the same) it does get kinda bulky. Would never bother me enough to not by them. Getting them onsale is wonderful but I would pay full price all day long.... they are worth it.

Fits Well, Nice Material

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

The fabric seems like really nice merino on these and the fit is great -- true to size. The only bummer is that the waistband gets turned around in the wash and is annoying to correct afterward.

Super Comfy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shorts are so comfortable and perfect under your ski pants on a nice warm spring day! I've had these for four years and they are still in great shape!

Love Wool!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I love my Stoic Merino Boy boxers! They are the first boy boxers I have owned. Super comfy, great to run around the house in...have yet to take them on a weekend backpack trip, but I am sure they will be wonderful, like all the wool I own, natures best! The twisty waist band is easily adjusted when wet and hanging out to dry.

Don't hesitate

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Don't hesitate in purchasing one or more pairs of these boy boxers! Extremely comfortable. & definitely purchasing more come payday.

Great underwear

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

My wife ordered a pair of these and after the first wear, she turned around and 3 more pairs. "Best boy shorts ever!" They stay in place, fit well, and they're not bad to look at. We live in high humidity even in the cold of winter and they keep her comfortable. They keep their shape while wearing them (no baggy butt or stretched out legs) Even when wet. She gets a little crabby when she has to resort to her "old" underwear when they're all in the laundry.

She does have a couple points:

1. Hang to dry only -They dry fast even in high humidity and the 1 pair that somehow found it's way into the dryer twisted at the elastic waist band (not a big deal, it can be fixed).

2. Nikkiwax wool wash is awesome (keeps them soft)

3. On her, they would be considered mid to high-waisted, so they don't work under some of her jeans.

4. Pay attention to the "Recommended Use" -They are not meant for intense exercise during hot and humid (sub-tropical) summer days(learned the hard way). Intense exercise during any other weather, they are great.

Dear Stoic, please design skin tone colors so they can be worn under whites. -a fan

What you said about not wearing them in hot weather is interesting, I am a wildland firefighter and continually in search of undies that are longer than most to prevent thigh chaffing and such, but obviously my job involves a lot of sweat, hardwork, and grudge in very hot conditions. Could you elaborate a little on why it isn't a good idea for intense exercise?

Best underwear I have ever had.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I've been looking for merino wool underwear that is long enough to not ride up into my bits, and this pair is the one! The fabric is so soft, it doesn't irritate my skin like other underwears do. I bought an XS and S and they both seem to work fine, I haven't noticed any stretching out yet. I want to buy a million more! I wear them every day. My boyfriend said to me "you never wear regular underwear anymore" whoops? good job stoic! (yes the waistband twists, minor issues though)

Comfortable with some waistband trouble.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I found these really comfortable. No riding up. The only problem I had was after washing it, the waistband twisted up. It is easily fixes, but still somewhat annoying.

5 5

Perfect!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I work on a farm and wear mine almost everyday! They are perfectly comfortable to work in high heat for long hours, sleep in or even swim in when I jet from the farm down to the ocean at day's end. Definitely true to size.

These boxers give me the feel-goods

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Bought a pair on a whim when buying a wool base layer top to wear under my hockey gear. Instantly fell in love and bought another pair! I have the worst time finding undies that don't trigger my texture issues, cover everything, and stay put. I think synthetic material undies feel horrible, and haven't found any cotton boyshorts that fit well for an active lifestyle and a big muscled bum, so these wool boxers are an answered prayer. They fit well and look invisible under EVERYTHING, never feel wet even when I'm super sweaty, never stink, and don't pinch anywhere. My only gripe is the same as everyone else: that twisty elastic in the waistband. Still, 5 stars. Adore!

TMI: These feel like workout shorts to me, and I've even worn them sans pants for quick trips to the store when I can't be buggered to get properly dressed.
