Review: New Balance Total Fit Lifestyle Trunk 3
The New Balance Total Fit Lifestyle Trunk 3 is the perfect trunk for guys who jog or run a lot, or who have a job that requires a great deal of heat and sweating to complete. They are made from a soft 87% polyester and 13% Elasthane blend, and are lightweight and maneuverable. Built with a contoured Total-Fit closed fly (no fly, no pouch), these trunks have Lightning Dry moisture control, which means you can stay dry and feel cool. The trunks include multi-panel construction for an advanced, comfortable fit and breathability. In addition to the previous features, these trunks also have anti-odor and anti-microbial features.

I decided that with all the features that these trunks have, I would wear them to the gym and see what happened. After a few miles on the elliptical machine, I checked for moisture on my body and was surprised to find none. Apparently, these trunks do what they are said to do. I found this to be the best feature of these trunks and, as with most trunks, I experienced zero chafing and things stayed in place during my workout. I do not mind the lack of a pouch because I like tight underwear while working out, but some guys might not like this particular feature.
Overall, the fit was great and true to size: large before and after washing and drying. The fabric was soft and conforming, but not stretchy. The style was fairly average, but I did like the steel gray color. Although I really enjoyed this pair of trunks, there were a couple of negatives associated with them. First, the price is $28 for the one pair of trunks. After a few web searches, I was able to find them for $16.99 +shipping from a website. Second, some guys will not like the lack of a pouch.
