i used to wear boxers for many years, then one day in the summer, i was getting in my truck which is an f350 on 33's and before that it was dodge ram 2500 cummins diesel on 33's and lifted a leg up to get in my truck and my boxers were stuck to my leg from sweat, and i ripped every single pair of boxers i owned and said screw it, i'm not wearing anything, and i haven't had a problem since, much cooler in the summer, not much colder in the winter...and yes i wear pants every day i work, it sure beats, getting grass, on my legs and in my boots. commando is the way to go.

I can tell you this much, no boxers for me this summer. I'm gonna try some if the suggestions on here and if that doesn't work I'm going commando. Too many times I've fallen victim to the waddle and it messes your whole night up.

These are a little pricey, but they wick well and are quite comfortable and keep everything in place

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

Commando is the best option.

Learned this in basic training. First half of basic I spent chaffed, I wore boxers so that was what I had, changed to briefs, used Under Armor...always chaffed....went commando never chaffed again. That's with 20 to 30K ruck marches. Went commando in Iraq no chaffing even in the heat. We didn't march much, but there was constant walking around during the stops at schools, and walking around on FOBs.

Since that little lesson learned I have commando'd it up doing lawn care and no problems. Every once in a blue moon I'll get the start of chaffing, but that's usually in spring, but I use Gold Bond foot powder ( the blue bottle ) and it clears up in a couple hours. ( Yes foot powder on the jewels and inside of the legs. It works wonders, learned that in the the Army as well.)
