An often overlooked wardrobe piece, underwear can make or break your experience during training, nights out and at work. Boxer briefs have taken over as the de facto choice for men’s underwear and there a variety of types available from compression shorts to purely cotton to more spandex variations. What wins out on undergarments is soft yet not too loose or tight, no chafing, a sleek look, and durability. The HYLETE icon performance boxer brief delivers on comfort, style and functionality. For a boxer brief that can be worn during any situation, consider the Icon Performance your number one pick. 

The icon performance boxer briefs features HYLETE’s proprietary quad-blend fabrics. Rayon is a fiber that falls into a category between natural and synthetic since it’s made from the cellulose found in wood via a chemical process. Bamboo rayon is a fiber that is made from the cellulose from bamboo, one of the fastest growing woody plants in the world. Rayon material in boxer briefs is a rarity and it provides the Icon Performance with a silky feel. Cotton keeps things soft in this fabric blend, so you’re not wearing overly tight/stiff underwear. The spandex ensures enough stretch so no tears occur during tough workouts and lets the waistband move as you do.

Available in black, agean, and eclipse gray in sizes small-XXL, the icon performance boxer briefs provide breathing room when and where you need it. Wear the boxer briefs under gym shorts, jeans, dress pants, and yes, as the featured pick in any fitness modeling underwear shoot. The closed crotch is ideal for privacy and comfort while the inseam length is just right: long enough not to ride up and short enough to not show under training shorts. Find the perfect size for you in the HYLETE Sizing Guide and know that the stretchy waistband will conform to your body.

At the end of the day, the struggle against chafing is real for any guy that is physically active. Flat-lock stitching and an abrasion-resistant gusset prevent chafing during everything from work commutes to long ruck marches through vigorous outdoor terrain. Count on the Icon performance boxer briefs for maximum performance through whatever life throws your way.
