No really: best ever in the cool, comfortable no bunching stakes. I bought them for under motorbike kit, when the ever-present threat of monkey-butt can make undressing at the end of the day a less than fabulous experience. I now wear them as the underwear of choice. I know: your day is much improved by knowing these details: you're welcome.

Read a lot about these before buying, I sometimes chaff between my thighs on long walks, but not with these, they are long enough to cover the area that rubs. They also let the sweat disperse and I have noticeably drier nads! One slight disadvantage that I noticed was, that because they don't have much substance to them, if you fart there is no resistance at all, so rather than a gradual change in ambience, that you would get with cotton scads, with these it's instant! If you drop one, there is no escape, you can forget about nonchalantly wandering off and letting someone else take the blame, you won't be able to move a muscle before all eyes are on you!

What am I reviewing : Under Armour Original Boxerjock (Boxer Brief) 6 Inch
Order Date: 25th March 2015
How much did it cost: £11 (FREE POSTAGE)
Who did i buy it from: Amazon Uk
How long did it take to arrive: 3 Days
What are the pro's: Tight fitting but not tight around your important bits and bobs, Very supportive around your bits and bobs while exercising, Nice quality, Non fading colour even after numerous washes, Comfortable waistband, Faultless design and construction. Looks just as good (maybe better) as any other premium quality underwear. Garment is practical and still looks very masculine, fashionable and also anatomically enhancing around the changing rooms, available in many colours and sizes, not too expensive, maintains its look after numerous washes, keeps you dry and non-sweaty where it matters.
What are the con's: None
Would I recommend this to others: YES
Will I buy this again: YES
Sum up the review: These briefs are perfect and do when you need them to do very well indeed. They are not too expensive and come in numerous leg lengths. What is best about these is the feel of them against your skin, they are very lightweight but performs extraordinarily well keeping you dry and fresh throughout the day. I wear mine on most days even when i am not working out. They are awesome all day boxers. The best part is the amount of support you get. It keeps those (you know) bits secure and non-bouncing around, this maintains all round comfort no matter what the level of exercising you do, plus the supportive pouch fits snugg but not too tight just like the rest of the garment. I am currently in the process of replacing all my underwear with under-armour. I am more than happy with them. If your a dude who struggles to find proper fitting, comfortable underwear that performs well when exercising and also when just wearing them as everyday under wear then you cannot go wrong with these. I have washed mine now numerous times and the garment is just as it was when first opening. Calvin Klein could learn a thing or two in my opinion.

Recently redesigned- these underwear used to be great for people who lift weights because of the extra room around the glutes and thighs, but this seems to have been removed.
Still a relatively high quality product, as someone with a 36" waist, the size Large is uncomfortably tight, buy larger than you think you need.

These Under Armour "The Original" 6" Boxer Shorts are really comfortable and practical for everyday wear. They really only seem to have one issue - the waistband. If you are borderline between one size and another, you may find the waistband digs in - and it digs in with mighty power. It also, because of its width, has a tendency to roll over on itself. Otherwise, these boxers have nice light material, supportive, stretchy, good quality, and no issues with riding up. As good as these 6" shorts are, I actually prefer the 9" version, so for anybody dithering between the two, I would say to try the 9" version.
So, with the exception of the waistband, these are great (although I prefer the 9" version). The waistband could do with some redesign - including, hopefully, toning down the bright red advertisement for Under Armour.

After reading reviews about how comfortable these were, i decided to give a pair a go. At first they feel nice and snug, but after a while, the way the fabric clings to you begins to feel tight and doing everyday activities feel irritating. i'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned but If you also happen to be particularly hairy around the backside and thighs, the fabric seems to cling to hair like Velcro and makes squats or even sitting uncomfortable. For short runs, they don't seem to do this and work fine as compression boxers, but for every day activity they can become annoying.

I've got a one or two things by UA and I'm very impressed by the quality. It's definitely a step up from Nike and Addidas.
I wear these under running tights and they're extremely comfortable and wick away the sweat very quickly. I've worn them for 2-3 hour runs without any problems at all.
Even though they're technical boxer shorts they don't feel very synthetic like some technical boxers I have, so you could easily wear these as everyday boxer shorts in hot weather.

These are probably the most comfortable boxers I have ever worn.
I use them when playing football, at the gym for running and weights, and general day to day use.
They feel silky smooth on your skin and are very supportive without being too tight.
The material is great and allows air to circulate. They never ride up no matter if I am playing sports or not.
They don't retain moisture like cotton and I will 100% be buying more!

I needed a boxer that was close fitting, breathable and stylish. These have a neat fly in the front and have been excellent in every way. Will get some more soon.

These just aren't as 'revolutionary' as every one seems to say.
I bought these specifically with a view to wearing them on leg training day for support and comfort. With every squat, lunge or jump the leg rides up and collects around the groin. Very uncomfortable and not very supportive. On the other hand, when I am just walking around they seem to hold my thighs in a vice like grip.
I am sure its sizing related, but they are already quite loose round the waist so I can't go up a size.
It would seem the message then is they are OK, as long as you don't have large(ish) thighs and a small waist.
