Because it can get hot and sweaty down under.

I bought a pair of Under Armour boxer jocks. Now that is all I will wear Nuff Said.
Perfect for outdoor work.
I do a lot of outdoor work that involved 12-17 miles of walking per day in the Florida heat and humidity. The last few weeks is the first time I've gone chaffing free, and its all thanks to these undies. Cotton can kiss my ass.
Keeps one cool and comfortable
These boxers work really well and keep me cool, dry and comfortable during my workouts. I use them for my daily inline skates of 17 miles each morning. The fabric, which is very light, soft and elastic, really does wick moisture away from your body very well. Not only does it keep you dry, but it is fast drying itself so it does not become a heavy, wet rag during prolonged activity. These features, combined with a snug (not compression) fit, so there are no jumbles of chaffing wet fabric anywhere, make the Heat Gear Short Boxers indispensable for comfort. The jock cut is also great for comfort. These things are excellent!
I have a 32" waist and find the Medium size very comfortable. It is tight too the skin, so it supports well and doesn't bunch up. Definitely follow the sizing chart, and don't order too large.
These are great for athletic activities, they will keep you cool and comfortable. I have used these mainly for cross-country skiing and running in cold weather. In hot weather I use running shorts with built in liner since it keeps you cooler than underwear, but I use these anytime I'm working out in something that doesn't have a liner.
Under armor boxer jock
I gotta say, I go huntin' and ATV ridin', and I's a big boy, and these are bar none the best under britches a big fella could need. Y'all could kiss the old wedgie monster buh bye! Keeps ya dry, and no more chafing from a hard days a ridin'. God blessed ya under armor folks. I love yer britches!
Good stuff be be careful ordering.
After reading most of the reviews, I ordered 5 of these boxer jocks cause they were on sale. I am a size 33 waist so problem 1 came when I order them on the smaller side and got a medium figuring they would be stretchy. After trying them on I would have to go with the large instead of the medium.
Problem 2, they still crawl up even though some of the reviews say they don't. I have tried both the short boxer jocks and the longer ones but they both tend to ride up.
Problem 3 is that Backcountry was amenable to my returning the merchandise however, since it was an error in sizing, I would have to cover the cost. So most of my savings would have been eaten up on returning the merchandise. For that, I could have just bought them off the shelves of my local Academy or sports store.
Moral of the story...make sure you know what your buying before you buy it because returning them might cost more than what you actually save!
Ever tried the boxer jocks?
If not you should, I bought both kinds at the same time. These and cold gear type. Just for the nike fans out there, the mesh crotch in these give your balls a cool constant breeze while just chillen, bar hoppin, and doin some common rompin on your turf. Honestly, I dont buy cotton anymore.Dont buy immitation, buy it dude.
Under Armour Short Boxer Jock
The UA Short Boxer Jock is very comfortable and also gives you enough support if you find yourself running from the law or something. The mesh panel helps keep your junk cool as well as in place and the short version helps avoid the boxers bunching up on your legs. Pick up a pair and you won't be disappointed.
I seldom make time to write reviews - AND I have NEVER felt the need to wax poetic about underwear; BUT these things are fantastic. True to size, great support, cool and light-weight. I through away my "tighty-whities" 25 years ago for boxers; And now I'm giving up my boxers for these.
Good for cold weather
Only downfall is that these are pretty warm. I wouldn't reccomend them for hot summer days, or anytime when you need ventilation. They are very comfortable and durable.
why wear anything else
These are the most comfortable underwear I have ever owned. The biggest bonus is I wear them for everything. I previously had boxers for everyday, and an assortment of Patagonia type briefs for skiing or outdoors activities. These work better than anything I have ever had...for all conditions. They are not too tight in the junk for everyday wear like most briefs. I am in the process of getting rid of all my other underwear. So far the durability has been great but I got my first couple of pairs about 6 months ago so its a little early to tell yet on that front.
Like these less than the older model.
I got a couple pairs of these several years ago and loved em. I decided to get a few new pair about a month ago, so I got the 3" inseam boxerjock - thinking that was what I had bought before. Apparently, UA changed the design. What they call a 3" inseam is really about 1.25". With that short of an inseam, I find these underwear bunch up between my legs. The older pairs had just enough leg (about 3") to not ride up. These are acceptable, but I like them less than the older pairs I owned. I'll probably try the 5.75" shorts next time.
These are the best, wether your running down that trail you just found or walking to the store for milk, these are a great all around underwear.
Great Athletic Brief
These boxer jocks are a great play for anything from working out at the gym to hiking your favorite trail. Initially I only bought one pair because I was skeptical about the length. After wearing them on a half-day hike I realized I had not stopped to "adjust" once - I was sold. Now I pack these along for every athletic/outdoor activity.
Good service, fast shipping, boys love them.
Personally, I've never worn them but my husband and stepson swear by them! They are leaving for a tour of duty in Afghanistan and they were both so happy to get them! Since they have to wear ACU's for long periods of time, they tell me they don't ride or crunch (if you know what I mean) and when the men in my life are comfortable, I'm happy! I HIGHLY recommend!
I bought some of these a couple months ago, wore them and immediately had to buy a bunch more. They are the most comfy boxer briefs i've ever worn. The short length ones don't ride on me but the longer length ones did. I have a 31" waste and the mediums fit well.
They are definitely comfy. They seem like they are well made to hold up in the long run. They breathe nicely and look good. They do ride up just a little like the other review mentioned but not in a troubling way like other underwear I have owned. If they were made with organic products they would have received a 5 stars.
Wick well and keep you cool in warmer weather. I've found that they can have the tendency to ride up a little, but nothing too distracting. Quite slick; if you are going to working out or wearing basketball shorts, draw-string will be a must.
Great Boxers .You will hardly know you have them on but at the same time keep everything were it should be, true to size (I bought a small and I am 5'10" and 70kg )
