Are Bamboo Boxers Good? | The Truth About Bamboo Underwear
Long story short, yes, Bamboo Boxers are good. In fact, they are quite possibly the best option for a boxer/underwear. Bamboo processed the correct way has the potential to block sweat and smell, while feeling silky soft all at once. Let us go more in depth to find out what really makes Nikos Bamboo Boxers the best bang for your buck.
If you’ve stumbled upon this article, chances are you are having issues with your current pair of boxers. Everybody knows the feeling of wet boxers after a long day at work, or after a hard workout- and it’s the worst, there’s no doubt about that. Unfortunately, this is due to many companies using cheaper cotton, polyester and other fabrics that have a very hard time fighting the issues down there where it’s needed most.
For a brief history lesson- In the early days, the most common item made from bamboo was paper, and this bamboo paper-making process was invented in China. Bamboo was popular for many other products besides paper, including the construction of houses, and most products we make from wood today. Thanks to modern manufacturing, bamboo pulp is now capable of creating bamboo fiber, which we here at Nikos use to make amazing yarns and fabric for our boxers. Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of the bamboo grass.
Bamboo was born to become the boxer brief fabric of today. A Bamboo Prophecy, it was called. All of its unique properties combined with its ease to grow, well… It was destiny.
Bamboo, naturally, has antibacterial properties, and if done properly, will retain those same properties in its fabric form. This is the most important factor when deciding a boxer. Why, you ask? Well, did you know sweat has no scent? The gross odor from sweat comes from the buildup of bacteria in wet, warm areas. So, essentially, the challenge was to not just target sweat, but to go for the source; total annihilation of the bacteria. Bamboo fabric tackles this with a combination of hits. It wicks away the majority of moisture to keep you dry, and Nikos Bamboo will keep you dry, with our Micro-Hole Technology, which aerates your twigs and berries. Mixed with the antibacterial properties previously mentioned, it is the perfect equation for the most ideal feel.
Bamboo was the answer, it was always the answer. We have been blinded by the popularity of cotton for hundreds of years due to one measly invention. Thanks a lot, Eli Whitney.
Bamboo outperforms all other fabrics when it comes to creating the perfect boxer. Another big win for bamboo is its thermodynamic abilities. These briefs will keep you dry, cool and crisp during the hot summer months, and they will also keep you warm and cozy during the winter time.
The softness of our Bamboo fabric is no joke either. If you want to get technical, it all starts with the individual bamboo fibers, and the roundness and smoothness of them. This is due to our mechanical breakdown process, rather than a chemical wash. If you have sensitive skin, this should be music to your ears.
The comfort level of Nikos Bamboo Boxers is also unmatched. The waistband is made of a soft, stretchy material that stays in place without digging in, and the boxers have a snug but not tight fit that allows for maximum movement and comfort.
There is also an environmental factor when using Bamboo, which is a big deal, especially in these times where factories, and other manmade structures that may be harmful to our ecosystem, are at an all time high. Bamboo is naturally an “invasive” species, which basically means this thing can grow anywhere, anytime, and usually pretty fast. Although this may not sound ideal for your front yard, logically, it is essential when you need to supply a mass amount of something. Bamboo also requires no pesticides, insecticides, and very little water to grow, something most fabrics used today can not say.
While taking all of this information in can seem a bit overwhelming, Bamboo for boxers really starts to make sense when you think of all of its wonderful capabilities, not just for you, but for your world as well. Let’s take a look at just how harmful a very common fabric we know all too well, cotton, actually is. Last year, the global water usage for cotton production was around 250 billion tons of water. That is 66 trillion gallons of water. To put all of this in perspective, Lake Erie, one of the Five Great Lakes, is approximately 127 trillion gallons of water. Over half of that went to cotton production… in one year. It can take more that 5,000 gallons of water to make just two pounds of cotton.
On a brighter note, bamboo requires only 130 gallons of water to produce over 3 pounds of soft, fresh, bamboo viscose fabric. Bamboo is pretty incredible, isn’t it? What is just as cool to us is that bamboo can grow up to twenty feet in one week! So do not go planting this stuff just anywhere!
Back to boxer talk… we would say the Top 3 biggest issues men face today when wearing boxer briefs are:
- Moist/Swamp Feeling where it is not wanted
- Proper aeration from the bamboo fabric solves this issue.
- Fit becoming loose over time
- While the bamboo will ensure a good, flexible fit, having a quality bamboo fabric will ensure it stays this way for a long, long time.
- Strong odor from the briefs
- Antibacterial properties in the bamboo fabric will prevent any bacteria from forming to create the smell we all know and hate.
