A lighter and stronger take on underwear, we created the fabric with plenty of nylon for strength, modal for softness, spandex for stretch, and SilverAir yarns for odor resistance. The knit structure of the fabric is open and breathable, and works very differently than our Merino Wool Underwear. Instead of pulling moisture into the core, it wicks it away. While the anti odor performance will not be as effective as our merino products, it dries faster and can be washed and ready to wear within a few hours. This product does not feature the SmartGrip System found in our Merino Wool underwear; otherwise, the construction and components are identical.
We offer offer free returns and exchanges within the U.S. on all concept products (except for underwear and socks which are not returnable once opened). However, because we make concept products in limited quantities, you have 14 days from the date of delivery to decide if you want to keep the product or initiate a return.
I've owned a number of premium underwear brands, including Y's own SilverAir Merino variety. The fit of these is pretty much the same, which is to say it's very good. Enough support for workouts and HIIT, but not too much so that it's still very comfortable to wear as a daily driver. In fact, they are one of the most comfy boxer briefs I've ever worn. Compared to the merino underwear, these are a lot lighter and airier. The merinos are great to wear as travel underwear, as well as for gym days. These new ones would be equally good for gym days, but I'd feel a lot better about running in them since they're so much lighter. I can't attest to the durability of these yet since they're brand new, but because they are so thin and light, I hope they hold up as well as some of my other premium activewear. We'll see! Otherwise, highly recommended.
Just saying. My new favorite
Nothing on the market is like it. Amazing.
I bought two more while I can.
These are hands down the best underwear I've ever owned without any exaggeration. They are light, super breathable, are very flexible, and stay in place well with the right size. They do seem to be tighter than the Merino Wool Underwear, so each do have their unique features. I typically side a bit more toward the light breathable fabric, so I do like these a bit better than the Merino Wool Underwear, but that said the previous best underwear I've ever owned were the (as you guessed) Merino Wool Underwear. I'd definitely give both of them a 5 out of 5. Now I just have to figure out what to do with all the non-Y Athletics pairs I have...
