30 day unlimited warranties are useless

SWAV is the best example of why the 30-day “unlimited” return policy is bullshit. It took me actually going to the paypal order screen to find the policy.

No Joke, this is the waistband after two wears.

SWAV — The company that doesn’t allow second chances.

I did contact SWAV to see if they would be able to let me at least exchange the performance boxer briefs with possibly the luxury boxer briefs, and haven’t heard anything back from them. In comparison, if you send Mack Weldon a tweet they will usually reply within a couple hours.

Wear and comfort

When I put these on the first thing I noticed is how loud they were. These are the loudest underwear to date. You can check out the sound here.

They got really hot, and they itched, but they didn’t chafe.

Moisture and odor

They do wick away moisture quite well. They have the same “pee-pants” effect as all the other good performance boxer briefs.

The light green is when taking them off. The orange is at times when you get a whiff of that ball sack smell while sitting.

Verdict

I wouldn’t advise anyone to buy these out of principle. Their waistband quality is extremely lacking. The vast majority of other options. That are in many cases 50% the cost of these, do a better job.

Why are they great?

  • These things are awesome at chafe control.

Who would want to stay clear?

  • Anyone who likes having money.
  • Anyone who likes using companies with good customer service.
  • Anyone who has issues with feeling ripped off.
