While I work in an office building and not outside farming, herding cattle, or engaging in other strenuous outdoor work, I do hike and spend time outdoors recreationally. I have never, ever had the problem you describe. I suspect those are exaggerated accounts.

    In my opinion, the Ex Officios ARE better than the Airisms, but not so much better that they are worth the additional cost (especially at full retail price). If you can find them at a decent discount and can afford them, I would recommend the Ex Officios. If you cannot, then the Airism boxer briefs should work well.
    I, too, live in Houston. I, too, wear airism all summer. They're fantastic for the price, zero issues.

    Random plug - BR sells boxer briefs that fit like the airism and have the same stretch, but are thicker. They're perfect for winter. They're pricier than airism, but do actually seem worth the cost.

    Ditto. I own several pairs of each. The ExOfficio's are way better imo, but pricier. I have boxer briefs as well as regular briefs from Ex and I love them both. If you have issues with excess stink, I would look into something with merino wool, like Smartwool 150 boxer briefs (although these are even pricier at $30 and they don't have a lot in stock, may have to go through rei or something).
