Kit Focus — Runderwear Sports Underwear

April 1st has long past—this is not a joke. It is a genuine kit focus, on the great running and hiking underwear from Runderwear. The seamless boxers and briefs have been my chosen option on events such as the Original Mountain Marathon, and #WildWight Hike. No more chafing.

Cyclists soon learn that 'going commando' is by far the best option with bib shorts. The chafing from the seams of traditional boxer shorts does not bear thinking about. What about running and hiking though?

Admittedly when you are cycling you are sitting directly on any seams, but when running or hiking you are still put at a pretty elevated risk of chafing from the repetitive motion of the exercise. You could go commando, but that poses a whole host of other potential problems. The seamless underwear from Runderwear has become my solution—the security and warmth of underwear, but without the discomfort.

I have tested the briefs and the boxers and found them incredibly comfortable. The seamless technology means there is no uncomfortable rubbing, and the fabric is also far more breathable and moisture wicking than normal cotton boxers.

Also, helpful, is that they stay put. There is no riding-up thanks to the gel grippers on the legs of the boxer shorts and the articulated cut of the briefs.

This is underwear, optimised for the runners and hikers (female versions are also available).
