Let’s begin by saying that these are not your dad’s tighty-whities. Those of us that have traveled internationally or have been on extended backcountry trips have faced the dilemma of how many days can we wear the same pair of underwear. The modern era of undies has created a technical piece of apparel that can sustain multiple days of wear and help fight the stench. Here are some of our favorite pairs of travel underwear for keeping your business happy — and healthy — during the long haul. (If you need to stay warm, you might want to check out our roundup of the best thermal underwear).

Saxx Kinetic Long Leg, $40

The name says it all. The patented BallPark Pouch (pouched underwear is important) keeps everything in place while a semi-compressed fit provides all-day comfort. The moisture-wicking Nylon, paired with anti-microbial technology, fights odors for long-lasting use.

Patagonia Capilene Daily Boxers, $35

Think of this pair as environmentally-friendly undies. These boxers are made of lightweight, 100-percent recycled polyester jersey and feature Polygiene permanent odor control, so you can wear them more (and wash them less).

MyPakage Action Series, $35

The three-dimensional pouch supports your package, while the 100-percent hydrophobic MyDry fabric keeps you dry by pulling moisture away from the body. Bonus: The Action Series from My Pakage (a brand we know and love) comes in some seriously cool patterns.

MeUndies Boxer Brief, $20-$24

The natural and sustainably sourced micromodal fabric used in these undies is softer than cotton and doesn’t impose the same after-effects of wearing the latter for prolonged sessions. Find the pair that suits your personality by choosing from classic, bold, and adventurous colors and prints.

Icebreaker Anatomica Boxers, $40

Icebreaker Anatomica Boxers

Made of 83-percent Merino wool, these boxers feature the company’s core-spun fabric, in which the wool fibers are wrapped around a nylon core, giving them increased durability and next-to-skin softness. Additionally, the flat lock seams eliminate chafing while the wool provides natural odor resistance.

Smartwool Merino 150 Boxer Brief, $45

Smartwool Merino 150 Boxer Brief

These ultra-comfy boxer briefs are made from 87-percent Merino wool, which helps regulate body temperature and resist odors — key components to let you get away with long periods between changing (as needed). You can find additional colors here.

ExOfficio Give-N-Go Sport Mesh 6” Boxer, $30

ExOfficio Give-N-Go Sport Mesh Boxer

ExOfficio knows a thing or two about adventure travel necessities, and the brand’s underwear is no exception. The ultralight synthetic mesh is breathable and dries quickly, keeping you cool and comfortable on the go. The fabric is treated to reduce odor, so you can wear one and take a spare pair on any length of trip.
