Where can you get Dri-cool

The Dri-cool jocks are very good, you used to be able to get them from Kmart - Anyone know where you can get them now?

have to write this quick before my mrs sees and wonders what the hell website im on.....

you want definate 'cuppage', holding everything steady so you dont pinch a ball getting on and off. very painful. and no fly in the front for poking out of, bike trousers have very viscious zips.

hipsters from M&S are my weapon of choice, but not the grey ones they look horrible when things get a bit sweaty, black or navy only.
they wash real good with showergel in formule1 basins too so you only need take a few pairs

Come on, you don't expect anyone to believe you had a need for a condom, once you're intended victi..., err, I mean your date saw your skidded Y-fronts. This is a serious discussion you know.

BTW, Aldi in the UK had a special on last week on 2-pc snowboarding underwear for under £10. Bought some a couple of days ago so may still have some stock left if you're quick.

Black Silk Boxers - you wont even know your wearing them, really comfortable. Wash with your normal clothes, it takes some life out of them, my last purchases lasted about 6 months on the road.

I must admit icebreakers have been the way to go for me. They are quick drying and take some time before they start to smell, although i haven't tried shitting in them yet.

The only negative is that they are quite expensive.

While riding, I have always used Under Armour Heat Gear Compression top and bottom. Have been very satisfied with it.

I go to Wal-Mart and get the microfiber ones. I believe the name LIFE is on the package somewhere. I prefer the ones that have about a two inch inseam. No seams in the, uh, delicate areas.

The hiking and climbing sector have lots of new tech fabrics that wick, dry fast, have anti bacterial coatings and stay warm/cool features. If you are carrying limited stock of gear, they are worth investigating. Most are also very light and pack small(s)
