Fuse Boxer in Night Ski, $31.95

With a suggestive moniker and a novel approach to … er … handling guys’ merchandise, Vancouver, B.C.–based Saxx Underwear is decidedly unconventional. Unlike most underclothing, the company’s entire line of boxers, briefs, and long johns ($30–$80) features a compartment—call it a banana hammock—that separates your privates from your thighs to reduce chafing, whether you’re skiing the bumps or hiking up Buttermilk. The result is a pair of skivvies that may feel a little weird at first but will soon earn a spot in your conventional rotation.
