Normally, we look to merino wool to help us stay warm in the winter, but that same naturally amazing material is also just as effective at keeping you cool when the temperature begins to heat up. Icebreaker is taking advantage of the natural cooling properties of merino wool in its new line of underwear designed specifically for active lifestyles.
Available in a wide variety of styles and colors, the new Anatomica boxers are made from 83 percent merino wool that’s actually spun around nylon fibers to provide the softness that merino is known for with the durability and elasticity of nylon. The combination means that the boxers move with you without riding up in all those places they have no business being. And because the merino is still next to your skin, you get all the natural benefits of merino wool including its ability to wick moisture away and keep you cool. The best benefit, however, is the one that men everywhere have been dreaming about since the days of woolly mammoth underwear – skivvies that don’t stink!
The boxers are available for $40 at Icebreaker.com. And just in case you want to enjoy all those same benefits upstairs as well, Icebreaker has also released coordinating Anatomica Short Sleeve Crewe shirts for $70. So stay cool this summer. Your friends will most definitely thank you.
