I use the black REI synthetics. I'm not sure how it works, but the black color completely eliminates ugly skid marks, even after a week or two.

It's like magic.

I’ve had pretty good luck with the Black Ovis boxer briefs.

Ok, I ordered a pair of the airism and a pair of the mesh. Which style of skinny jeans do you like best?

Wait'll you try them. You'll thank me. Skinny jeans? Not yet; however, I do admit to owning both a 6.5 Creedmoor and a 270.

For years I’ve been using Icebreaker merino wool underwear. I also use a light weight long Merino layer as well. The under wear are comfortable and odor control is good.

I use the Duluth buck naked. Clean myself with either hand sanitizer soaked baby wipes or Lysol wipes. No idea if I am giving myself cancer with the Lysol wipes but they do a good job.

"good wicking, boxer brief to cover upper thighs, and odor control" that pretty much defines merino wool. I only use Merino wool undergarments any more on extended wilderness trips.

I like Ex Officio. The stretch waist band breathes and dries quicker than any other that I have tried. UA are OK but the waist band will stay damp from sweat much longer than the Ex Os. Merino takes forever to dry on your body if you sweat much.

for longer trips, my beloved Ibex lightweight merino boxers- my last pair and they are out of business frown

for shorter trips- Outdoor Research Echo boxers (these are also my daily choice as well)- microgrid syn really breathes well and they dry uber fast, they are holding up well too

You guys can laugh at me all you want, but the first lite Marino underroos are a game changer for me. They have the comfort of the under-armor type compression shorts, but they keep the stink down on the longer backpack style hunts.

I will note that the ball bag area in the older models were made of a mesh and have a tendency to wear out early. If you keep wearing them long enough, because they're so dam comfy, your wife will get tired of seeing your sack hanging out. I can confirm that it'll drive her to buy you a few new pairs for your birthday.

I've been wearing REI synthetics this week elk hunting. So far so good.

An update.

I ended up with 2 pr REI synthetics and 2 pr Meriwool boxer briefs. I wore the Meriwool 2 days in a row on 2 Smoky Mtn hikes. No odor despite sweating for most of 19.6 and 16.1 miles respectively. My only complaints with the Meriwool is they did seem to stretch a bit more than I like. Other than that, they are very comfortable and a solid choice.

I wore the REI for a couple day stints this year in elk season. No odor, didn't stretch, and another solid choice. I'd lean toward the REI due to the stretch factor.

I'm about to start whitetail hunting and will be wearing these 2 for multiple days in a row. I'll report back in December some time after I kill a few deer. grin

Not laughing here. Love my first lite aero wool boxers. Keeps the swamp a$$ away. Comfortable.
