Lots of colourful Saxx boxer shorts

With advertising slogans like "Home of the BallPark Pouch", "Ball chafe? We’ve never heard of it", and our particular favourite "Give your balls and legs some time apart", Saxx isn't shy about getting straight to the root of the benefits their boxers offer over and above (and more importantly, under) other boxer shorts.

Ball care

Whether you're on a hiking adventure, travelling the globe, hitting the trails, or simply going about your everyday life, the truth is gents (apologies ladies, but this really isn't for you) we should be paying more attention to our balls. And not just in a 'checking for lumps in the shower' way (although that is hugely important).

Whether we choose to admit it or not, balls get in the way. Taking a little bit more care over them can increase levels of comfort dramatically, whether hiking up Helvellyn, hitting the trails for a 10k run, or just kicking back at home or at work.

The BallPark Pouch

This is where Saxx comes in. Their range of boxers offers something a little special, and it all starts with the BallPark Pouch. This mesh sided hammock which sits at the front of Saxx’s boxer shorts provides two huge benefits. Firstly, it holds your balls gently but supportively. We could come up with a way of describing how this feels, but Jamie Oliver (even the Naked Chef wears pants sometimes) probably summed it up best: “It’s like having your balls cradled by angels”. Yes, Jamie, indeed it is.

Secondly, the mesh sides of the BallPark Pouch keep your balls and your legs separated. This means they won’t stick, rub, or chafe, regardless of how hot and sticky things get down there.

Chafe-free comfort

The BallPark Pouch is just one element of the Saxx package. Their Flat Out Seams ensure supreme comfort with zero chaffing in all areas of the boxers, while the 3D fit technology ensures every pair holds everything where it should. The fabric the Saxx boxers are made off also plays a part. Regardless of which pair you pick up, you’ll find the material highly wicking, breathable, fast drying, and – as much as we’d like to pretend this isn’t a benefit, we all know it is – odour resistant.

Saxx for all

There are Saxx for sports, Saxx for adventure, and Saxx for every day. Within these ranges there are slim fit, relaxed fit, and even compression fit options. There are also more bizarre, outlandish, and unique designs than you could ever imagine. When it comes to choosing the perfect pair, Saxx have made it simple by colour-coding the packaging of their ranges: dark blue for ‘Everyday’, light blue for ‘Adventure’, and red for ‘Sport’. And for the 1-in-12 men who suffer colour blindness, the range is written on the box too.

So, what are you waiting for? Head over to a Saxx retailer (we’d recommend Cotswold Outdoor) and begin your journey into the wonderfully supportive world of Saxx. Honestly, you’ll thank us for it, and your balls will thank you.
