Which brief is the best when you are out their for those hot humid days chasing Elk and you don’t want the rash? I see Sitka and others make briefs for that purpose. Any recommendations on which one is proven to work?

From: Elkoholic

Any. Use monkey butt powder. They sell it at sportsmen’s.

Go free gun or exifcio! Merino wool should be good.

Exifcio are good undies. Wear well and easy wash & dry fast. Packs well & durable.

Here is a tip I use....my back sweats like a mother especially with a pack on. It`s like a creek running into my crack down the trough where my spine is. I take a small towel or even a hanky, fold it a couple of times. Put half of it in your underwear right above you crack and fold the other part over your underwear band on the outside. Then put your pants on. It stays in place and stops the "river".

Those Duluth underwear suck! I got a pair as a gift and I tried to like them but they were horrible for me. I like First Lite and Kuiu

Saxx are the best so far.

Sitka has a label imprinted on theirs that sticks to your skin, unless they have changed that aspect. That makes them drive you crazy!

Keeping clean and as dry as possible is the way to go. Saxx have worked well for me. So well that I wear them every day.

Compression shorts, no matter the brand and be sure you get the correct size. Coupled with Body Glide, you will never chaff again. In fact, glide works so well I could probably wear my regular boxer briefs but I always ere on the side of caution.

From: Buskill

Russell is right . Go merino wool . I suppose you may need powders at some point but that’s true regardless of what you are wearing . Using baby type wipes in camp , occasional powder and merino each day is a good combo

I 2nd Castle Oak. I wear adidas climacool which is 90#poly with 10# spandex and bring bodyglide for the more sensitive to chafe areas. I actually don't leave my house without compression shorts on, it's a recipe for disaster. Works like a charm for marathon training as well. If you really want to spit out your coffee you should see the method I use to put it on so I can see what's going on lol

Midwest- It just a good early morning conversation piece. Very thought provoking like “thought for the day” material. It definitely not “pillow talk” material !!

Baby wipes... then you can wear any underwear you like.

It ain’t the underwear that causes the problem.... hot undies just make it worse.

Don’t get me wrong......I’m not advocating hot underwear.... except for our wives and that’s a different “ hot”

I wear the DT Buck Naked boxers in daily life and it is among the best money I've ever spent on any piece of clothing. However, you could not pay me to wear them elk hunting, at least on a backpacking hunt away from the truck. Synthetic material gets so much stench that it's difficult to clean out unless I pack in soap and plan for laundry time. Cotton just remains wet so the crotch rot is inevitable. Merino or commando with a little Monkey Butt Powder or similar is the only way to go for me. I carry wipes, but sweat so much that I'd need to stop too often to stay on top of it. I'm trying Sitka this year due to getting a 50% off price. I tried the First Lite Red Desert's once and they did not hold up to the hiking demands. They developed holes easily and simply failed to meet expectations.

Banana hammock .... sounds like they would be too big.

Do they have a sweet gherkin model?

I've tried First Lite twice and they failed miserably. Fell apart at the seams in several places. For the price of those damn things, they should've lasted more than one season.

Most merino wool UW and the duluth nekeds lack support terribly. I don't know how you guys tromp the mountains w/ your junk flopping around. I'd be chaffed and in tears within a day..... ya'll must have a thigh gap

From: JTV

just wear a damn jock strap and use the baby wipes and scentless powder, when it is hot in early deer season, thats the way to go for me.... would work well for you elk chasers also .....

Personally I prefer the ounce of prevention over the pound of cure, which is why I wear merino undies in the mountains. The whole baby wipe thing seems that it wouldn't do me much good unless I was grabbing one out of my pocket every 10 minutes to wipe the crease. Having something that breathes a little is nice. Now, there's still nothing wrong with a little extra cleaning from a baby wipe on occasion, but it's not something I want to be constantly doing.

Someone noted it above, but Duluth Trading's "Buck Naked Boxer Briefs" are frigging amazing. I've used em for hiking, running, xc skiing, snow shoeing, playing with the kids etc etc... It's like not wearing underwear.

But taking a bath in a local stream OR bringing some baby wipes to help "clean" the area is the best option. Not to be done all day, but just a "wipe down" 1 X day. Helps prevent the ubber rot stench if you catch what I'm saying...

I go cammando and use gold bonds to stay fresh. No broefs in the world is more refreshing and comfortable as that.

I was at a ASA tournament about six years ago that was the hottest, most humid, miserable place aI have ever been. And I lived near Houston for 6 years. I couldn't take it anymore and went and bought some Starter boxer briefs that were made of a wicking material. They were pretty cheap and I loved them so much I bought a 12 pack of them when I got back home. I am still wearing the same ones. They are comfortable, don't stink, and last forever.

I know once I found the "right" set of wears I don't know how I hunted w/o them. I went 20 years in wool outers, poly long johns but always had a hot, then a cold and clammy butt. Since its hot start trying different athletic wears right now. Cut the lawn and then go sit down the basement and have a beer and see how you feel. They all fit different so it takes some experimenting.

Buck Naked extra long boxer briefs, from Duluth Trading.

Comfortable, and they don’t bind.

I tried KUIU underwear thinking I would not like them. Ended up loving them. They have a band on the leg that keeps them from riding up. Probably would not work as well for a different leg size but for me fits perfect.

LOL! Sucks to hear the FL doesn't hold up well, got some to try this season, but I won't be hiking the mountains so maybe I'll have better luck. This humidity is hell with cotton boxers and I don't wanna go all "Bad Grampa" when I rock some shorts, so thanks for the thread and suggestions, gentlemen.
