Certain pieces of clothing can make or break your hunt. One of those key pieces of clothing items that are often overlooked by a lot of hunters is what underwear you use.
The GOHUNT "Underwear King" Chris Porter, gives some quick tips in the video below on how to stop chafing while hunting by selecting the perfect underwear for your adventure. Chris has tried out pretty much every pair of underwear options for hunting and a few years ago, he finally found the perfect pair, SAXX underwear. When you watch the video you'll instantly see how passionate he is about this underwear line-up.
In Chris' words, the SAXX Quest boxer briefs are the absolute hands-down best underwear for hunting. Porter prefers the Quest long over the Quest short version, as he feels the short version kinda rides up, so he suggests anyone over 6 foot tall to run the long version. These breathe extremely well and will be as comfortable on day one as day seven of a grueling backcountry hunt. Note: these do have a fly.
The SAXX Kinetic boxer brief lineup is best for training. They don't breathe as well as the Quest, so you might want to reserve these for working out or training for hunts. They could work for just day hunts if you are heading back to a hotel and changing boxers each day. Note: these are a semi-compression fit and do not have a fly.
The four main features that set SAXX apart from other underwear are their BallPark Pouch, Flat Out Seams, 3D Fit, and moisture-wicking properties.
A 3D hammock-shaped pouch designed to keep everything in place. Thanks to mesh panels and Flat Out Seams, the BallPark Pouch prevents skin-against-skin friction and ensures chafe-free support.
This is what SAXX are known for! Their BallPark pouch keeps your "neighbors" in the right place and in Porter's own words, "absolute revolutionary science."
Counter to conventional methods, SAXX reverses the stitching, placing the flatter, softer side against the body (a.k.a. an itch-free experience).
All styles start with an ergonomic nine-panel construction to create 3D support around glutes, thighs, quads and hamstrings.
Each pair comes with qualities designed to combat clamminess and allow moisture to dissipate away from the skin.
Don't let your hunt be uncomfortable due to the wrong choice of underwear. This might all seem a little minor in the big scheme of things, but trust Porter... SAXX underwear are game-changers and more hunters need to know about these underwear options. Plus, they are odor-resistant!
