The Best Smelling Quick Dry Travel Underwear

Travel Underwear? Yes. Even travel briefs exist today. What makes travel undies different from a normal pair is that they are adaptable to even the most adventurous traveler. I am specifically talking about the following attributes:

  • Quick-drying
  • Treated to control odor-causing bacteria
  • Stain resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Sweat-defying
  • Bacteria resistant

These claims are all nice but are they really true?

I recently tested ExOfficio’s Men’s Give-N-Go Boxer Briefs

for five days straight. ExOfficio says you can actually wear them without issue for over one month. I did not feel the need to verify that claim because I do have regular access to a washer, dryer, and a dozen more pairs of underwear in my bedroom closet. I look at it like the poop burger phenomenon. While now proved to be a hoax, there was a story that poop could be turned into edible burgers packed full of protein and solve the world’s hunger problem. If this were true I would still prefer to starve. The same goes for this underwear. While I can realistically wear the same pair for over one month without it smelling or passing along any diseases I would not want to do that.

They did not smell. Besides no odor the pair of underwear was more comfortable than just about any other I have worn. The exception would be UnderArmor’s undies which are at about the same comfort level as ExOfficio’s. What I mean is that as a traveler in my own city I was able to comfortably walk for eight hours without sweating down there. I did not need to pick any wedgies either! In the past while traveling in Bangkok I clearly remember returning to my hostel early each day because walking in any other underwear was painful. When I compare what I wear now to what I wore then ExOfficio is light years ahead.

ExOfficio Travel Underwear

In just one week of testing this has easily become my go to pair of underwear. So much that I actually do my laundry more often than before, just so that I can wear the ExOfficio quickdry underwear more often.

Disclosure: ExOfficio

provided me with this pair of underwear. Will they provide me with socks now too? I hope so!
