Quest 2.0 Long Leg, by Saxx
Hiking up n’ down one of Colorado’s famed fourteeners. Working up a stinky sweat while playing ice hockey. Rollerblading 20 miles. Crushing H.I.I.T at the gym. Or sitting on an airplane for 11 hours. These are just a few of the times when I’m thankful to be sporting the Quest 2.0 Long Leg, by Saxx. Because this thing is highly breathable, moisture-wicking, anti-bunching, stretchy and soft to the touch. And once you wear ‘em for the first time, you’ll shun all of your other undies.
That’s right, I’m enjoying the Quest 2.0 so much that I’ve accumulated multiple pairs and I’m looking all McKayla Maroney-like when regarding my old, inferior underwear.
This garment is constructed of ultra-lightweight, anti-microbial, pin-dot mesh fabric (77% nylon, 14% spandex, 9% polyester). Beyond boasting all of the aforementioned qualities (moisture-wicking, etc.) I’ve found the material to be resistant to wear and tear; it holds up to regular abuse and frequent washing.
An ergonomic shape provides excellent support, a mighty-snug fit around the thighs and glutes, and no bunching. Additionally, the seams on the Quest 2.0 are strategically positioned to eliminate chafing at common friction points, and the flat, soft side of the seams face inwards—unlike some other undies where the raised seams rub against the body—for further defense against the onslaught of potential chafe. There’s also Saxx’s “BallPark Pouch,” which keeps everything in place and boosts the overall awesomeness factor considerably, IMO.
Saxx offers a 30-day comfort guarantee so that if you don’t come to agree 100% with what I’ve outlined, above, you can send ‘em right back and request a refund.
