Rated 5 out of 5 by from Merino Boxers I'm totally a boxer guy and have been for years. I've a few pairs of "active" undies that I wear when I'm on the motorcycle riding aggressively in the mountains or at the racetrack. I recently took a job that requires wearing safety protective equipment on a daily basis. The equipment smothers my nether regions with my own body heat making it quite uncomfortable. I ordered a pair of these to see if they would be an improvement over the cotton broadcloth undershorts I normally wear. Well, I swear by them now. I ordered 4 more pair so I can always have a pair available. Quality and fit is typical of Rapha, much higher than what you're probably used to. Great product, highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best merino boxers! For some reason, every other boxer manufacturer thinks people still wear their pants up to their belly buttons like Cary Grant! These Rapha merino boxers are lightweight, have a nice low cut waist, and are super comfortable. The seamless crotch design is ideal for cycle commuting, and the merino dries quickly. Waist 31", ordered Medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Climate control for your manhood... When looking to 'invest' financially and emotionally in a product that, lets be honest, not everyone is going to see... The form & function balance becomes much more of an equal equation. Not that style should ever rule, of course! These Rapha Merino boxers have the style, naturally and being merino, wrap things up like like you were looking after a couple of Fabergé egg's! With built in Air Con for good measure. No need to think about it anymore, you won't go back to cotton after wearing these!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange cut I am large in most Rapha but for some reason a medium in these. Even with the smaller size they are a pretty long cut in the legand slightly uncomfortable and restrictive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best wool undershorts you can buy First of all. Not for distance cycling. My skin isn't particularly sensitive, but these things are wool after all. Even Merino wool is no match for a cycling-short insert. I wear these things all day, EXCEPT when I'm on the bike. Wool is a great material for base layers -- It's cool when it's hot and warm when it's cool. It keeps your bits from getting sweaty. It doesn't hold body odor. These are the best wool undershorts I've found. The fact that they aren't 100% wool is a huge plus. I have 100% wool undershorts and they stretch and get droopy. Buy these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are pants! Bought my first pair about a year ago and wear and wash every week (change daily of course!). So that's heading on for 50 plus washes and they look and feel as good as new. I now have four pairs of these. More colours please, Rapha! Note, they are medium weight merino so not best suited to wearing under slim-fitting summer shorts or trousers. I don't wear them on the bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Comfy! Admittedly only used the once so far so can't comment on durability (often an issue with wool), but the Rapha Merino Boxers are super comfy! Includes the usual Rapha design features, fit and colours. Was nice to see the care label on the outside of the leg rather than the usual position. Will definitely be buying more, although not so sure about value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality underwear. I've recently added to my Rapha underwear collection to the extent that other brands now rarely get a look in. Fit is a personal choice but I like a snug fit and these boxers deliver. Yes, they are pricey but they are made to last and will still be in my undies drawer long after the cheaper ones from other brands have disintegrated!
