Pros Inexpensive, supportive, breathableDurable, soft, good odor controlLoose comfort, durable, soft fabric, respectable odor controlGood fit, soft fabric, breathableInexpensive, breathable, layers well
Cons Doesn't block odor well, less refined fitHeavy, 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 up
Bottom Line If the price of most travel skivvies is a bridge too far, this pair is worth a hard lookIt 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 briefs
