They are extremely well constructed with the seams looking like a cross between heavy industry and the tread of a tyre. The material is very light and soft and once on easily forgotten about. As with the Cougar t-shirt I reviewed the first time I wore these was hill walking and was very impressed with how dry they kept me. These really are a marvel of wicking fabric. It was probably the most comfortable I have been while walking.
On exercise as well I had no rubbing or chafing which normally builds up over a week. In fact I can honestly say it was a pleasure to wear them. Armadillo Merino state that these shorts can be worn for longer without getting smelly. In true scientific tradition I decided to find out. I put these on at the same time as the Cougar t-shirt to see whether it was true. Now normally I would change underwear every day on ex and I must admit I was a little dubious about keeping them on for so long. Well it is true; they were remarkably odour free and still dry after some god awful rain and a lot of rolling about in muddy puddles. Like the cougar they dried extremely quickly and stayed comfortable throughout.
The sizing is very generous; I am normally a large and really could have done with a medium. Every time I stopped I had to retrieve what appeared to be about half a yard of material from the dark side of the moon, not easy in webbing and body armour, but it provides giggles for the rest of your section anyway. This is a minor niggle but one to bear in mind if ordering.
Caring for these is simple, a cool wash and all is good. Just leave to dry, which really doesn't take long and your good to go again.
All in all I was very impressed with the Rammy boxers; the only thing that lets them down in my view is the price. I could never pay what is really £40 for a pair of boxers and that is really sad as I think that these really are very good.
