Underwear for Hikers/Backpackers stay tune for the BIG reveal!


senior hiker 77 I’m here with a another
short video that I thought might interest some of my viewers and
backpackers and hikers it has to do with underwear I was searching YouTube trying
to find some videos on underwear specifically directed towards
hikers and backpackers now I did find a lot of videos but there was mostly of
young men in just their skivvies and I didn’t see a lot on backpacking or
hiking I do think I can save you some money because I found two pair two
different manufacturers that made underwear that seemed to be specifically
for hikers backpackers and outdoors people now one of them the name is
ex-officio and I’m gonna spell it for you because the first time I heard that
name I couldn’t get my mind around ex-officio but it’s spelled Exofficio
and they make on undergarments a quite nice company and let me step
back and demonstrate what i’m talking about it i have to step back so you can
see the whole display now I’ve got my leggins on
because I gonna save you from the scene of my spindly snow-white legs that
hadn’t seen a ray of Sun in at least fifty years so I’ve got my leggings on
but on top of the leggings I do have a pair of ex-officio underwear now these
are became became my go-to underwear for hiking now I prefer this particular
style which is boxer briefs with a nine inch inseam now I like the 9 inch
inseam because it just it just feels like an extra layer of skin and if you
have any issues with chafing down into crotch area then this seems to reduce the
friction anyway it works fine for me but now what’s so good about him I looked at
their website they said it was 45% cotton and then there was infused with
something Jade and they in some spandex but anyway it doesn’t feel like cotton
and it actually feels nice against your skin and it’s it’s stretchable and moves
with you when you hike and walk but the big thing that I think is most important
is you you know even the through hikers they don’t need the two pair of these
underwear because you can take them off they’re not transparent but you hold
them up to the light you can see through them they thin but you can hand wash them shake them out and put them back on or worst case scenario you can
put them in your pack towel and twist and twist dry and put them back on
that’s the great thing about them now the only the only negative thing and
it’s a big one and that’s the cost of them these this is a solid color they
start at $20 a pair if you want the fancy ones with prints and designs they
go up to $35 a pair which is a deal-breaker for a lot of people it was
for me for a long long time to finally I managed to get two pair and that’s
mainly what I use when I hike until recently now the way you’re gonna save
money as I’m gonna take these down looks funny but I’m gonna introduce you to
these which is Fruit of the Loom they sold at Walmart and everything I
said all accolades about the ex officios this fruited alone loom it’s a micro
stretch and I’ll put a link down in the description box in case you want to go
to it but they come in a five pack and a three pack I’ve got two five packs which
gives me ten underwear but it’s it’s a polyester / spandex blend and it feels
good in fact all the accolades for the ex-officio would apply to this you can
now this has the long the long legs also which I really like and the friction is
everything is now here’s the best part about it the
five pack is $17.50 for five which if my division is right that’s three dollars
and fifty cents a pair now it’s getting down to where we can afford them right
but anyway I just wanted to introduce you to something case the ex-officio was
a little bit out of range but I’ve got to where now I bought two packs of these
this has become my everyday underwear not just for hiking now I guess that’s
all I had to reveal today but I guess I have a I have a I have a big reveal and
I’m not so big reveal should have said small reveal I was
hoping it’d be a little cooler so I could blame it on the weather but that’s
the way it is thanks for watching you
