Editors Prefer Buck Naked Underwear

After the Flex Fire Hose Pants Test, Dan and Frank Went a Layer Down for an Underwear Trial.

Now that we have your attention: Frank Holdmeyer, my cohort in crime as Executive Editors with Farm Progress Cos., and I have to agree we like the "Buck Naked" boxers from Duluth Trading Co. the best -- when compared with the firm's "Free Range" boxers.

Briefly, (GROAN!!!!) here's Frank's take on the matter:

"Comparing the Buck Naked and Free Range underwear was a bit of a challenge for me – as underwear is a sort of new concept for me. But I took on the task with "an open mind".

If you must wear underwear, both are fine pairs of skivvies.

"Free Range" boxers from Duluth Trading Co., provide wicking for cool running in hot weather and stand up to many wearings and washings.

However, I like the Buck Naked Boxer style best. I feel I have more "freedom" with these than the Free Range, despite the name.

Naturally, perspiration (I won't say, sweat, that sounds so "red neck"), is a concern this time of year, especially this year. Again, both styles do a good job of wicking which means more comfort.

Speaking of comfort, that's one of the big pluses for the Buck Naked boxers. I sit at a desk a lot and they don't "ride up" and are quite comfy all day long. The Free Range boxers have a bit more snug fit in the crotch, which isn't needed for desk work. I can see that being an advantage to someone who is more active.

"Buck Naked" underwear from Duluth Trading Co., were the winners in a recent customer survey between the the more form-fitting boxers and their "Free Range" counterparts.
