How to Buy Athletic Underwear for Men
It used to be super easy to buy athletic underwear for men. You could simply go to the nearest department store around Father’s Day or Christmas and the latest styles would be available in multi-packs and discount bins. Underwear was underwear, at least until men realized they were actually very unhappy with the options. Over the last 10 years, the athletic underwear market has completely shifted from cotton briefs, compression shorts and jockstraps to sleek, streamlined briefs and boxer briefs made from a blend of polyester and spandex. Over the last 10 years, the athletic underwear market has exploded with options.
We put together the following guide to help you find the perfect pair of men’s athletic underwear. If you have any questions, feel free to chat with us online.
Athletic Underwear for Low-Moderate Intensity Workouts
Low to medium intensity workouts are great for the joints. These activities include golf, hiking, walking, light jogging, yoga, and swimming.
Our newly released 4th Generation athletic underwear is designed to offer regular support making it perfect for low to moderate intensity workouts. Every pair of UFM athletic underwear includes our US patented and Intl patents pending drawstring pouch that isolates and supports to prevent chafing.
The 4th/5th Generation is available in briefs and boxer briefs with a 6” inseam, made with polyester spandex and viscose made from bamboo spandex. Golfers love the feel of our viscose made from bamboo. It feels like cotton, but unlike cotton, it wicks sweat. The Regular Support also has boxer briefs with a longer, 9” inseam made with our polyester spandex blend. These boxer briefs are perfect for men that like to lift weights or have muscular thighs.
Good for Hiking★★★★★
I bought a pair of 4th Gen Athletic Underwear for Men for a 10-day, 70-mile hike at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, NM. The breathable and moisture-wicking material kept me dry and due to the rugged-backcountry nature of Philmont, there were several days where I wore them for more than one day between opportunities to wash and they continued to feel great. The unique pouch is comfortable and kept me aligned through a variety of hiking, climbing and activity-related situations. Recommended highly for those going to Philmont or other hiking adventures.

Athletic Underwear for Moderate-High Intensity Workouts
Medium to high intensity workouts are great for getting fit and staying in shape. These activities include basketball, tennis, football and soccer, and they generally include a lot of bouncing and moving around.
Our Max Support is designed to offer maximum support making it perfect for moderate to high intensity workouts. Every pair of UFM athletic underwear includes our US patented and Intl patents pending drawstring pouch that isolates and supports to prevent chafing.
The 3rd Generation is available in briefs, boxer briefs with a 6” inseam, and boxer briefs with a longer, 9” inseam. All of the 3rd Generation styles are available in polyester spandex blends.
I have tried several pouch brands and none of them worked! None of them held my junk in place even in just normal use let alone in sport activity! That is until now! UFM got it right! I wore them during strenuous exercise and everything stayed snugly in place!! It was awesome!! Guys thanks for your hard work in developing this great product. From now on it's only UFM!

Built for Distance and Comfort★★★★★
As a long distance runner, I can say that the UFM delivered the support required for performance. Most compression shorts crush the manly parts. UFM is a surprising contrast. It cradles without any need for adjustment. And you know how embarrassing that is in mixed company. Whether you are dashing a quick 5k or settling in for 4 hour run, these shorts are a strong ally in getting the job done.
