Guys all know the feeling when it’s ungodly warm out and your private parts just can’t seem to stay cool enough, leading to all kinds of discomfort and extreme sweating down there. Cotton, while comfortable, isn’t always the best when it comes to your active lifestyle, which is where moisture-wicking technology comes into play. Underwear technology, combined with stellar support you expect from the top underwear brands, has made it easy for men to stay focused on their workouts and busy day, without having to sweat the small stuff. Below, our picks to the best and (most importantly) coolest pairs of moisture-wicking boxers and briefs on the market.

A trunk that’s designed to be worn working out, the Airknitx from Mack Weldon is a microfiber blend that includes a bunch of features (including stretch, mesh, and a non-roll waistband) that makes it a worthy option. Plus, if you’re not happy with your purchase, the brand will help you find a pair that fits your needs or issue a refund—you can’t lose with this one. 



We’ve already raved about this stellar athletic underwear for its crazy-comfortable Modal fabric and moisture-wicking technology that keeps you comfortable as possible on any given day. Just another reason for Lululemon to take all our money. 

Just like stellar HEATTECH technology that keeps you warm in the winter, AIRism has the cool touch technology to be your go-to for the hottest days this summer. The lightweight moisture-wicking fabric of these boxers almost makes you forget you have anything on down there, while ensuring you won’t feel seriously comfortable on sweltering days.

Settled somewhere between a compression short and a normal brief, these Climalite boxers can transition from the office to the gym in a flash.

Pair of Thieves describes the feel of their moisture-wicking boxers as basketball jersey-like, so I think it’s fair to say that wearing these is like being LeBron James. You heard it here first.

These fashionable Calvin Klein mesh briefs are just as trendy and form flattering as their traditional counterparts, but have the added value of the mesh construction at an affordable price.

A mid-weight bottom that’s a party up top and all business at the bottom. As with all Smartwool products, it’s 100% merino, which means the wool’s natural fibers will allow better temperature control than cotton.

140g 100%Polyester Flame Retardant Workwear

An all mesh, ventilated version of the brand’s compression shorts, the Under Armour Mesh Boxer is perfect for those brutally summer days where you need every advantage you can possibly get to keep cool.

These briefs from ExOfficio are neither whitey nor tighty, but do provide the same benefit of having a true brief: there’s not a lot of material to get caught in your pant leg which eliminates the issue of having boxers ride up on you throughout the day.

$34.00For many, Patagonia is the gold standard when it comes to their underwear and the A/C briefs continue that tradition. Made from a mixture of lyocell and spandex, these boxers will ensure breathability and comfort all day long.
