Helly Hansen XCool Boxer review: Technical sport underwear

This review of the Helly Hansen XCool Boxer was carried out on an action sports trip to Les Gets, France.  When participating in various action activities, decent technical sport underwear is essential so I was eager to try them out.

I got the opportunity to see how good these sport boxers were when I went rock climbing on a blazing hot summers day at Saint-Jean-d’Aulps.  Also know as Elephants Head.

Technical underwear for sport is getting more and more popular.  It is easy to understand why as the more comfortable you are, the better you will perform.

The Helly Hansen XCool Boxer fitted really well.  Snug and comfortable without being restrictive.

The band at the top looks good with the Helly Hansen branding in big bold letters.  The band was not too tight as I have experienced with other technical sport underwear.

The rock climbing was difficult and it was a sweltering hot day.  The Helly Hansen XCool Boxer helped with it’s ventilation and moisture management properties. Not once did they rub against my skin or seem sweaty and I was comfortable throughout.

Since, I have also worn these boxers while mountain biking as well as playing other sports.  They have been comfortable throughout and seem durable.

The Helly Hansen XCool boxer may not have the same support and comfort as the superb Saxx Vibe which I reviewed, but for technical sports underwear they do the job, and do it well.

Suitable for any sports and at a very reasonable price of £17.50, there is a lot to like about the XCool boxer.

I was wearing the Helly Hansen XCool Boxer in blue, but you can also purchase them in black.
