best underwear for chafing

Post by BigJesse »

Man, that title looks like something a spam bot would put.
In all seriousness I have found the greatest underwear ever, period.
The ExOfficio Give-n-go Sport 2.0 9" Boxer-Briefs.
I chafe easily as a big guy and it'll make an enjoyable trip miserable really fast so I've been on the search for the right pair and finally found them.

Pros:
• Long 9" inseam
• Super lightweight
• Very breathable
• Comfortable
• Quick drying

Cons:
• Synthetic material
• Not the most durable
• Expensive (if you don't catch them at the right time, Amazon constantly changes the price from $16 to $35, who knows why)

Anyway, here's a link if anyone is interested. Make sure to keep an eye on the price it fluctuates a ton. I was able to snag 3 at $16 each. Not an affiliate link.

I use "lady Ainti-Monkey butt" powder from Tractor Supply to curb chafing.
Use to I would suffer constantly (big guy as well), but no more.

A little gold bond powder is all I need, but I'm an average/tall build.

I've tried powders, not for me. I took some BodyGlide with me to Colorado just in case but didn't need it luckily. These undies and being diligent on cleanliness have been best so far.
