Briefs and boxers from Patagonia's Capilene line.|
U is for underwear ... for him
When it comes to underwear -- especially in the tropics -- lightweight and breathable is best. Travel and active-wear undies from Magellan's and Patagonia are excellent choices for the world traveler in your life.
Wash them in your hotel sink in the evening, and they'll be dry by morning, and they even offer extended odor control for those horrid overnight flights or days when you can't change clothes. They're especially efficient in dissipating perspiration in warm weather.
Magellan's product uses a material called VisaEndurance, described by the company as smart-fabric technology. Jockeys and boxers are available in gray or white at $14.95 and $16.95, respectively. Order via the Web site www.magellans.com, or call 800-962-4943.
Patagonia's Capilene LW Boxer Briefs and Capilene LW Briefs, $25 and $17 respectively, are made of soft moisture-wicking Capilene fabric. Both are ideal for rigorous aerobic activity and come in several colors.
Visit the Patagonia store in Haleiwa, 637-1245, or Powder Edge at Ward Village Shops, 593-2267.
