Pros Durable, soft, good odor controlLoose comfort, durable, soft fabric, respectable odor controlGood fit, soft fabric, breathableInexpensive, breathable, layers wellInexpensive, supportive, breathable
Cons Heavy, extra thick waistbandLoose fit not for active use, bunches up under tight-fitting clothingPiping is annoying, lots of seams at crotch, not incredibly durablethin waisband, legs roll upDoesn't block odor well, less refined fit
Bottom Line It works and stands the test of time, whether on a plane or in the backcountryThe Vapor is comfy and durable for casual use and travelComfy, light, breathable, and handsome, but we question some of the design choices and longevityAn inexpensive but high quality pair of boxer briefsIf the price of most travel skivvies is a bridge too far, this pair is worth a hard look
