MyPakage Weekday Boxer Brief


MyPakage is an underwear company that uses “Keyhole Comfort Technology.” These are internal pouches, akin to Saxx and 2undr, and offer an handful of other features as selling points. While the features MyPakage offers aren’t awful, I was disappointed by my experiences with this item. There are much better alternatives on the market.

 
Materials and construction: The material is 95% modal and 5% spandex, which is a common blend among higher-end men’s underwear. The Weekday Boxer Brief’s thin, stretchy material is fitted around the legs and back, and a little looser on the outside of the pouch. The “Keyhole Comfort Technology” of  the pouch itself is a horseshoe-shaped layer of fabric that supports the genitals, very similar to what was found on the 2undr Swingshift Boxers, but without the extra space between the pouch and waistband. It’s also significantly smaller, in comparison, and substantially less accommodating than the internal pouches used in Saxx underwear. The “No-Rub Tag” on the side of the waistband, is a feature touted on the company’s website, is an unimpressive feature.  The waistband itself is comfortable but loose, and has a cheap feel to it. The Weekday Boxer Brief has held up well after getting washed a number of times. 5/10

Comfort and usability: Like the 2undr Swingshift Boxers, This takes a lot of adjustment to fit into place properly, but unlike that pair, once you’re in place, you can move around a fair amount without falling out of the pouch, although the pouch can’t accommodate certain movements like deep squats. The “No-Rub Tag” the website boasts of is indeed more comfortable than a traditional tag sewn below waistband in the back, although it’s no better than many of the other alternatives that are found in high-quality men’s underwear. The best thing I can really say about this is that the thin material is fairly comfortable in warmer weather. Most of the features here aren’t bad, they’re just superfluous in a market that offers comparable features with better execution. 4/10

Aesthetics: These look like diapers. Not a good look at all. 2/10



Overall rating: 4/10

Big enough? Not really, but it’s not too bad.
