Review – Zylas 2908
This is not my first pair of Zylas underwear but it is my first time reviewing them for UNB. As with my other pairs of Zylas, I am proud to report that the 2908 boxer brief does not disappoint. One thing that I love about Zylas as a brand is that their underwear is multipurpose. It functions great as everyday underwear but also holds up well at the gym and could even work as beachwear (a lot of Zylas styles come in great colors with unique designs that make it easy to show them off).
I wore this pair for a particularly busy Saturday that included some errands and shopping. The 2908 did a great job holding up to the activity of running all over town during a busy day and I have also since worn them around the house for a day loafing and also was pleased with how comfortable they were. This pair goes above and beyond however and was also very comfortable to wear to the gym. My routine on this day featured both weights and cardio which put the pair through their paces and I never had to adjust. Also, this pair wicks moisture like it’s its job… which I suppose it is.
The pair that was supplied for this review was a large (which the tag indicated is 36-38 inches) and fit true to size. The fabric is a nylon/polyester/elastic mix (83/10/7%) which gave great stretch which made the boxer both ideal for everyday wear and working out without any binding or bunching. Finally, though not specified to what level of protection, the tag indicates that the 2908 also provides UV protection (see previous mention of use as beachwear).
The 2908 comes in bright orange with gray, blue and black vertical stripes. The logo waistband features the same shade blue and provides a comfortable, snug fit. This pair also features vertical vents that are slightly more sheer than the body of the garment that run parallel with the stripes and provide breathability without revealing anything they shouldn’t.
The Zylas 2908 is definitely a great pair of boxer briefs for any guy in search of a great-looking, versatile pair that is as comfortable in the office as in the gym. If you don’t own any Zylas, I would definitely suggest trying on a pair for yourself.
