how do the cup the "boys"? I have about 4 pairs of the under armor boxer briefs.. i wear them when I know it will be a few days before the next shower, and they work ok at keeping me dry in the desert but they are tight on my "boys". I was thinking about trying ScottieVest's travel boxers.
On a related note, I have a few of the REI brand underwear. I still prefer the Ex Officio, but like the REI ones too. One or two of those had the waistband loosen, but not as prevalent as with the EOs. REI ones are several dollars cheaper too.

Interestingly though, Scott Brady, who initially recommended to me, has now been vocal about Sax. http://www.saxxunderwear.com/
Any by the way, this is one thread where photos are really not necessary :-)

Even though I have many pairs of the Duluth Trading "Buck Naked Boxers", I saw the Give-n-go ones on Amazon, so I ordered up four pair of the black ones this morning to try out compared to the others.
Amazon has them on sale for $16.98, way cheaper than Ex's site.
I'm anxiously awaiting your report Corey. I've got the old fabric Buck Naked's (which performed superbly in the desert) and wasn't a fan of the new fabric/elastic/cut. My old one's elastic is now merely a suggestion...
The only thing I do not like is the small button on the fly.
Why have a button at all, they should make them with an elastic panel like briefs that fold over.
I hope the Ex ones coming Friday have no buttons.
You mention, "Why have a button at all, they should make them with an elastic panel like briefs that fold over." You just described boxer-briefs - maybe you should look into those.
The Ex-Officio's appear sans button from the photos I've seen and the narrative product description generally provides those details, so hopefully, no button.
