The Bad

  • Tended to ride up
THE VERDICT

An all day comfortable fit positioned these boxers into our weekly rotation, whether we were planning a workout or not. They did a good job of managing sweat for lower paced activities, but when we upped the sweat factor they became overwhelmed. They also lacked enough support to prevent some unwanted jingling of the jewels.

FULL REVIEW

Wicking
The combo of polyester and a hint of merino wool did a descent job of pulling moisture hiking, camping and light running, but when we upped the output—CrossFit, uphill running—they were quickly overwhelmed, feeling soggy.

Dry Time
After cutting off the supply of sweat the boxers quickly caught up. The merino fibers helped disperse the moisture for fast drying. 

Active Performance
The Sequence fit a little loose. We found them sliding up under a waist belt, not quite into wedgie territory, but creeping that way. And they didn’t offer much restraint in rough conditions—the bits were flip-flopping too much. The flat seams never irritated or rubbed.

Wearing Comfort
These wear like cotton boxers: soft, breathable and loose without being baggy. It also has a well-engineered fly that could easily be used one handed.

Temperature Management
The combo of the merino and poly helped keep these comfortable in a range of temperatures. They felt warm in the cold and breathed well in all conditions. After sweaty work outs we could get a bit chilled waiting for them to dry, but it was never too long.
