Yep, the time has come. It’s time to get down to the nitty gritty and review something that you truly, without a doubt, need. Underwear. But here at Pack Hacker, we’re not going to settle for just any underwear...are these the best boxer briefs for travel? Let’s find out.
We’ve been testing out “The Dailys” from Woolx, and they are not your average pair of boxer briefs. They're made from merino wool—along with just about everything else made by Woolx. Why would anyone want a pair of wool boxer briefs? Well, if you’ve followed some of our older reviews you’ll know this is not your average fabric—it’s actually sort of a “magical” material.
We’re not going to get into the science behind it, but the most important thing is that it keeps you warm when it’s cold, and cool when it’s hot—and it does this better than pretty much any material out there. One feature we really love is that merino wool seems to be immune to odors (it’s antimicrobial). You can go for a while without washing these, which is great for traveling—or if you just hate doing laundry. Oh, and it’s also really comfortable.
As for these boxer briefs, they are made of really thin merino wool. They feel like the softest boxer briefs you’ve ever worn, and we’ve also found that they don’t bunch up a lot when you’re wearing them. Bunching up is often a problem with wool undergarments—more so than their cotton counterparts—so we were pleasantly surprised by this.
They’ve got a nice “structure” when you wear them, if that makes sense. The Elastic waistband on the top is pretty solid and they kind of conform to your body, giving a great fit. They come in a bunch of different colors, too—you can really add some flair to your underwear drawer.
We’re happy to report that they are definitely not scratchy. Again, most people assume wool = scratchy. With merino wool, that really isn’t the case—especially because these are pretty thin. Did we mention how soft they are? They’re really soft.
Now, all this comfort does apparently come at a price—literally, these things are $33 a pop. That wouldn’t be so bad if they lasted forever, but unfortunately, that is not the case. They’ll last for about 6-9 months of decently heavy wear, which is a little disappointing. We’ve traveled with four pairs of these and used them exclusively for about 1.5 years. They were all basically shredded after nine months—arguably still wearable, but your mom would have a fit if she knew. All in all, they’ve broken completely after about 75 wears. That's a cost-per-wear of about 44 cents, which is pretty darn high.

In this Woolx Dailys review, we cover the good, and the not so good of this tech wear underwear. The great news? These boxer briefs are super comfortable. The not so great news? They tend to degrade quicker than the price tag calls for. This isn’t great if you’re really trying to be a long duration minimalist traveler.
