pirate.png Rumor has it that there is actually moisture-wicking underwear for us hard-core runners. Does anybody own a pair? Is is better to go with the technical underwear rather than cotton? Just wondering...... bug.png

I prefer commando for superior value, comfort and breathability.

The technical skivvies look like a fancier version of a running short liner; good for when the liner self-destructs and you still like the shell...

Yes Brooks makes runderwear.

For the boys, Foot Zone in Bend sells what I've heard referred to as "Peter Heaters."

They still MAKE cotton underwear? Are we talking about granny panties here?

Patagonia has a great line of technical underthings, as does Nike, but it's pretty tough to beat commando. Besides, all those running shorts (and skirts) have built-in liners for a reason.

I bought Kelly some Patagonia under garments....if it has a built in liner Clover...it's not a skirt....it's a skort...SKORT meaning a skirt with some serious access issues!!!

Ya gotta watch out though b/c sometimes those built-in short liners are too flimsy to keep a guy in check so to speak. blink.gif

I realized this one time while doing "high knees" warming up at the start of a XC race in high school and I didn't have time to fix the "problem" before the start. I think the elastic was stretched out. frantics.gif

brr.gif I was certainly well ventilated though...

Keep on truckin'! :yes:
