Merino Boxers

Regular readers will know I love merino, it’s a great fabric for active wear. It’s breathable, sweat wicking, hygienic, odourless and super soft, so I’m baffled as to why there aren’t more merino boxers on the market. I’ve selected the best that I can find here, featuring garments that combine style with all the functionality of merino. These boxers are great for everyday wear, activewear and even more so for training; ultralight, supportive, sweat-wicking and quick drying. Add in flat lock seams and/or seamless design plus supportive detailing to prevent skin on skin contact, eliminating any further risk of chafing and discomfort and they are basically the perfect pair of pants.
