Pros: Amazing Fabric, good boxer brief pouch design, and great for an active guy.

Cons: Looser fit, only in 5 colors .

UNB Tim recommendation: I would definitely recommend these. If you are a boxer brief fan and are an active guy. These are for you. The fabric and pouch will give you breathability and support. Even if you aren’t a boxer brief guy. I say try something new. I see a big future for Krakatoa and think we are going to see amazing things from them .

Krakatoa Underwear is one of the new kids on the block. I originally found them on Instagram. We reached out and started a relationship with them. They are two passionate guys about making the best underwear they can! They have a cool pouch design. The two pouch guys, Salvatore and myself, decided to give them a go.

Let me preface this by saying if you’re a long time reader you know this. I am not a fan of boxer briefs. It’s the fit I don’t like.Salvatore and I  split up the collection. Which is a brief, trunk and boxer brief. We both will be reviewing the boxer brief. I drew the short straw and got the boxer brief. Little did I know what would happen.

The first thing you notice when you take Krakatoa Underwear out of the package is the fabric. The fabric is a 92 percent Micro-Modal + 8 percent Spandex. Modal is my favorite fabric for underwear. The first reason is it’s super soft. Next, it breathes throughout the day. Third, it’s just so darn comfy.

I put these on and headed out for a day in the Georgia heat and humidity. This was going to give them a workout. Working my part time job is a lot of driving and moving. The one thing I noticed was the legs weren’t super tight. Which is my preference. This is because I hate when the legs ride up during the day. Usually, pairs that are looser in the fit will do this. However, these never rode up or bunched. I was super impressed.

The pouch is a new design, for a boxer brief is pretty good. I had no issues of things getting out place during the day. Again, I was surprised. Having a looser cut to me usually, spells disaster for a full days wear. It’s a good design for a boxer brief pouch. We need more brands to do that!

How was the sizing? I hear some of you asking. Well, this is one of the few times I may suggest getting a size smaller. The boxer briefs were loose in the leg and I had more than enough room in the waist. I like my undies a bit tighter. If you are a fan of looser cut undies get your size in inches. If, however, you want this tighter, go a size smaller. It’s not often I tell you guys to go smaller!

Find these at the Krakatoa Underwear site. Which happens to have free shipping in the US!
