Other reviews seem pretty accurate to me. This is my first foray in to this kind of underwear. Purchased particularly for a backpacking trip of 4 days and wanted something comfortable and fast dry. I just returned from an amazing trip in to the alpine lakes. I liked these the best of 3 different brands I purchased. They were sized well, breath well, comfortable, and I could wash them in a stream or lake and they dried out in no time. I would buy them and again.
Based on all of the reviews of these I've read I guess I expected a little more. These are pretty comfortable initially and my opinion is that they run a little big. I usually wear a Medium, but I feel like the Small fits better with Ex Officio. I hand washed these and hung dry. They dry fairly quickly.
Now the bad...They started pilling after only 4 or 5 wears, and they also began to cling together in the package like velcro. Basically the inner thigh section clung to the package area. The substantial amount of pilling makes them much less comfortable. They're ok, but at this price I expect more. I've come to prefer Calvin Klein trunks to these.
These are fantastic. I use them year-round for running and training. They are very lightweight, cool, and stay dry. They fit a bit longer than a sport trunk, but not as long as boxer briefs (someplace in between - a great length). They feel more breathable than many other athletic underwear brands. In the dead of winter, I may reach for something warmer though. I generally view these as 3-season underwear.
