My Favorite Travel Underwear

Today is a first for me! For the first time in my life, I am writing about underwear! As many of you know, my partners over at Travelsmith have some of the best travel gear around. The same can be said for their underwear selection. It may seem weird that I would write about underwear but so many people have no idea what to get and why when it comes to underwear. It’s such a crucial part of a hike, climb or really just any long active travels, especially in hot weather. Here is my favorite travel underwear and don’t forget to check the bottom of this post for a discount code that could save you 20%!

The ExOfficio Active Boxer Shorts are my favorite travel underwear because they just work. They do everything you want, need and expect in activewear for intense physical travel or climbing and it keeps the surprises and guess work out of it.

I learned a long time ago when I first climbed Mount Kilimanjaro how important underwear was and I was not thoroughly outfitted properly. You can and likely will wear the same underwear multiple days if not multiple days in a row. That’s what quality active underwear like the ExOfficio Active Boxer Shorts are designed for. I look forward to wearing them to climb Mount Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe, in August!

The ExOfficio Active Boxer Shorts are tailored from light compression fabric. They provide extra support for active days, but won’t ride up, chafe or bind which is so key-trust me. The comfortable, stretchy nylon-Lycra blend wicks moisture, breathes easily and resists odor-causing bacteria-again very important! They also drip-dry overnight so they’re ready when you are. I literally hang mine outside each night and they’re ready to go in the morning on a mountain! The contrast stitching also makes them stylish, if you’re into that kind of thing! Note I didn’t include a picture of myself in them and I am sure that broke some of your hearts-others not so much!

The ExOfficio Active Boxer Shorts are also great for playing basketball or working out as I’ve been using them for the last few weeks. So basically you can use them for everyday activities or the most extreme of travel. I’m glad I discovered them and look forward to really putting them to the test come August on the 7 summit of Europe!
