Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Fabric Makes a Difference I always valued the cut and comfort of Rapha's wool boxers. It dawned on me more than a few times that there was likely a better material for warmer months. And shortly after I saw advertisements for other companies with a less warm/more cool fabric, Rapha introduced these. The polyester and elastane blend is considerably cooler and more comfortable in warmer months. They run a touch smaller than the wool ones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm wearing a pair now They're cut exactly like the merino boxers, which is a very good thing. The fabric has a synthetic feeling, which may or may not be to your liking. I don't mind it so much now as when they were new, as they soften up after a couple washings and are much less plasticky feeling than when new. As usual for Rapha, the detailing and construction are top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and comfortable Having worn the merino boxers for the last couple of years I was keen to give these a go for warmer months. They are a great length and fit, and perform superbly to leave you feeling cool. I will now be stocking up on several more pairs.
