Default Polyester Boxers vs. Cotton Boxers

Kind of an awkward question, but its actually a pretty logical idea, seeing as how people emit the most heat and moisture from the crotch region of the body. Cotton will soak all that up, but if you wear polyester it will wick that moisture away from your body. Ive always worn cotton. It was just the other day that I was wondering if polyester boxers would do the trick. What do you think?

you want awkward, wear a buttplug and a thong.

why are you not wearing a proper base layer? you need to look into the term "layering". never wear cotton next to your skin in cold conditions.

Polyesters melt. Cotton burns.

Underwear is not needed on the hill. You have base layers on so what's the point

What he means is that the material your boxers are made off shouldn't be much of an issue if you have layered up properly.

The shell should keep you DRY (from moisture outside and let moisture from within evaporate), the mid layer (if any) should keep you warm (and not hold any moisture). The base layer should wick sweat away from your skin.

You are correct that cotton will hold water (sweat) for longer than a synthetic boxer... but it should only be an issue if your boxers get really soaked.

UnderArmour and other companies do many non-cotton boxers, but I find cotton to be more comfy and a bit warmer to wear on the groinage area.

Besides, if you were a REAL man, you'd be boarding in a 15k kilt and wouldn't need underwear at all!
