Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while, know that I have a little bit of a “thing” for men’s underwear. There are now 8 posts solely dedicated to men’s briefs on Run Oregon.
Yes, an underwear company by the name of SAXX is…interesting for sure. If it were my first time hearing about the company, I may believe that they weren’t for me. However, I have been wearing (and we have been reviewing) items from SAXX for a while now – and have always been quite impressed. And it seems that they have been expanding as well, as Tung reviewed a pair of running shorts and tights that were quite nice.
If you are looking to upgrade your underwear game (or perhaps update the game of someone who is in need of it), the new SAXX Vibe Holiday 2-Pack is a good place to start to add a pair of festive holiday prints along side a standard pair. These run as a slimmer fit (if that’s a thing in underwear), and is nicely constructed with an “anti-roll waistband” and flat seams for less irritation, ans moisture-wicking. I have a pair that has been in my drawer for a few years now, and, aside from some expected mild color fading, it is still going strong with no issues whatsoever. It’s a reason these are a best-selling pair.
I won’t go into too many details, but their “BallPark Pouch” is their real bread and butter. You can read more about it at your leisure, but it’s essentially:
A 3D hammock-shaped pouch designed to keep everything in place. Thanks to mesh panels and Flat Out Seams™, the BallPark Pouch™ prevents skin-against-skin friction and ensures chafe-free support.
I haven’t been disappointed in a pair of SAXX yet, as they provide a really comfortable option…down there. Consider these for a great stocking stuffer or even a “surprise” for yourself. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
- SAXX Vibe Holiday 2-Pack ($57)
- Moisture-wicking viscose fabric (95%); Spandex (5%)
More about SAXX:
Originality often times means being first and SAXX’s heritage of revolutionizing underwear goes back 10 years. In 2006, Trent Kitsch was on a fishing expedition and after spending hours in a cold, clammy ocean suit he knew there had to be a better way to protect his package from chafing. A former baseball player, he imagined a catcher’s mitt hammock design and turned it upside down in his mind. After the fishing trip, and with the hammock idea still percolating, he worked with a seamstress and designer — and himself as the fit model — to create a paneled fabric hammock that separated his balls from his legs. Fourteen prototypes later, the BallPark Pouch™ and SAXX Underwear were ready for action.
Thank you to SAXX for providing us with a sample pair. Please read our transparency page for info on how we do our reviews.
