Not as good as the previous generation.

Posted18 April 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality, Uncomfortable, "rides up leg", poor fitting
Having come from using the "Helly Hansen Dry Stripe Boxer Shorts" I am bitterly disappointed in these. I reiterate what the other reviewers have said in that these "ride up" when you are active, this makes them extremely uncomfortable. They ride up from the leg for me and while this is perhaps a more personal issue, due to the lack of leg coverage it causes chafing.
The reason for this problem seems pretty obvious to me having come from the previous generation of HH Boxers, these are significantly and inadequately (in my opinion) too short in length on the leg, when they ride up it's essentially like you're wearing Y-fronts and I found myself having to constantly adjust them, this was never an issue with the previous version.
The material is certainly lighter than the previous Dry Stripe Boxers and it is comfortable on the skin when inactive, the moisture and temperature control of this fabric is also great but, once you get active all of that supposed comfort evaporates.

Light weight comfort

Posted22 March 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
These boxer shorts are light-weight, wicking and very stretchy making them comfortable. They do tend to get drawn into crevices, if you know what I mean, but the other features means that this is barely noticeable and not uncomfortable like heavy cotton would be. Their light-weight nature may mean that durability will suffer, but have no evidence of that so far.

Light fabric

Posted21 February 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
Very light fabric, good fit and very comfortable.
I don´t rate it 5 stars because they intend to crawl up you legs when you exercise hard.
