Jason, my resident Underwear aficionado, just got his hands on a pair of AIRKNITX from Mack Weldon. So he decided to write-up this underwear product review.

AIRKNITX Men’s Boxer Briefs Review
“The Goldilocks of Underwear”
That’s what I realized when I finally wore the new AIRKNITX boxer briefs from Mack Weldon.
I recently had a chance to try these out.
Honestly, I was a little apprehensive before trying them on, as I just hadn’t had good luck with the way that MW fit me personally (on the shorter side, with a weightlifter’s build and slight love handles, if we’re being honest).
However, I was pleasantly surprised the minute I tried these on. They are ridiculously comfortable.
The AIRKNITX underwear are made of a lightweight, knit microfiber blend (56% Polymide / 29% Polyester / 15% Elasten), which was extremely soft and comfortable.
My best description would be that they seem like a slimmer fitting version of the Ex Officio “Give-N-Go” boxer briefs, i.e. my current favorites.
For something they advertise as being focused on wearing to the gym, I did enjoy wearing these all day long (which did include the gym).
They have a good color selection. A variety of heathered colors (no black or white though).
They didn’t ride up much, and the legs are a good length to keep from feeling like trunks, but aren’t too long and end up showing under your regular shorts.
Their waistband was surprisingly soft too.
They don’t have a fly, so depending on your personal preference, that could be good or bad. I didn’t have an opinion there, but wanted to pass the info along.
I like the label on the back leg too, as an interesting alternative to the annoying tag in the waistband.
All in all, these are just some damn fine underwear.
- Soft, lightweight materials
- Good stretch & wicking
- Room where you need it
- That I don’t have more pairs in my drawer at home to wear!
As much as I looked, I couldn’t find many complaints about the new AIRKNITX boxer briefs from Mack Weldon.
As the title says, they weren’t too snug (like the Jersey), they weren’t too loose (like the Silver)…they were just right!
They are the Goldilocks of underwear.
And, as always, if you don’t love your first pair, let them know, and they’ll send a different size, style or issue a refund – you can even keep the pair you tried on.
