Lowe Alpine Dryflo Mens Briefs

   Lowe Alpine Dryflo Mens Briefs Reviews

  Reviewed by Barry Hughes (Invergordon) on 2005-12-14:
General comments: Ever had a problem with chafing ? If so then forget these . I bought them thinking they would solve the old thigh chafing but alas they made it worse than before . The leg sections are too short for my chubby thighs and they would be a lot better if they had more length like a cycling short .Enough about chafing . Now I appreciate that a pair of pants are not worn around the most fragranced area of the body ,however after a long hot day on the hill (it does happen occasionally ) these boxers seem to soak up all the sweet aromas and amplify them a hundredfold . No wonder my wife makes me wash my hillwalking gear myself . I'm sorry I can't think of any more constructive comments about these boxers but they don't seem to perform any role particularly well .

Pros: They possibly wick sweat away .

Cons: They chafe and they smell..... bad .

Tim P responded : Barry, have you found any lightweight/cool boxers that do prevent chafing, as well as wicking well? I also suffer from the chafing problem. Have been using 5 pairs of Lowe Alpine briefs for the last 10 years or so. They're cool in baking hot weather, great for wicking/quick drying and the fabric is very comfortable next to the skin. But in recent years the chafing has been getting worse and worse - because of the seams, and also because they don't cover my sweaty inner thighs. I've spent ages looking for genuinely seamless technical boxers that are just long enough to cover the chafe points. If anyone has found the perfect pair, would definitely appreciate the tip...

General comments: I have had a pair of these Dryflo briefs for a couple of years and find them really good. I don't personally get the chafe issue described in the other review and don't find they smell much worse then any other boxers after a day in the hills. I was wearing them snowboarding recently and got soaked in a rain shower mid morning. Despite getting a wet bum at the time, after about 15/30 mins they had dried out, so I was pretty impressed. They are also excellent for hill walking as they wick moisture in a similar way to Lifa thermals. I had previously used just normal boxers but found these to be a significant improvement. I haven't tried any other high performance pants so can't say if they are better of worse than other brands but would recommend them over standard underwear for defo.

Pros: Comfortable, wick sweat, dry fast

Cons: Pricey for a pair of pants, but worth it for the improved comfort

General comments: I have used these for quite a few years now with no problems. I also have never had any chaffing despite having big thighs, as they dont ride up your legs when walking like some do. They are a very comfy fit and seem to last for ages so the extra cost is woth the extra dosh. Men tend to get quite sweaty in the "dangly bit's" area however i have always stayed very dry and comfortable thanks to their great wicking properties, so i have never suffered from the Betty Swallocks syndrome!!

Pros: Very comfy, great wicking properties, fast drying, long lasting and dont smell as bad as some after long days in the hills

Cons: Not cheap, legs could be 30mm longer

General comments: Have had a pair of these for three years and still going strong. Fine for day to day use but really prove their worth on holidays and especially trekking/walking. Not only are they comfortable with good wicking properties but dry very quickly after washing making them ideal for backpacking/trekking.

Pros: Comfort, wicking, quick dry after washing

Cons: Cost

General comments: Personally I'm with Barry on this. Thought 15 quid pants would be better than normal ones when it came to chafing and sweat control. However, they performed very poorly. After a couple of hours of sweaty, fast, hiking these became uncomfortable. Possibly the other people's experiences are due to a different shaped bodies, these are tight fitting and not made from a soft fiber, so a precise fit is crucial if comfort is to be achieved.

Pros: Other people seem to find them okay

Cons: Cost, chafing, lack of comfort

General comments: Bought first pair of Dryflo Briefs 4yrs ago and after much use are still going strong together with a second pair bought soon after. Having tried several different styles and makes of tech underwear over the years have found these the most comfortable and suitable for myself. Quick drying, comfy and have stood the test of time, these suit me.

Pros: Good wicking and fast drying, comfortable.

Cons: Pricey?

General comments: I've worn these for years now and have found them excellent. I've used them for long hikes and cycling and they have always proved very comfortable. They wick sweat away very quickly keeping you dry even after considerable exertion. They can be washed in the washbasin and left to dry overnight. Thus, a couple of pairs of these briefs will suffice for many days of continuous walking and they smell as sweet at the end of the walk as at the beginning.

Pros: Wick sweat away very effectively. Prevent chafing. Never smell bad aven after prolonged use.

Cons: Expensive.

General comments: On the whole comfortable, but not great for very hot conditions.

Pros: Comfy, supportive.

Cons: Price. Not great for hot temperatures and like Barry says above, they smell really bad!
