REVIEW OF PRODUCT – RUNDERWEAR™ BRIEF – A SEAMLESS TRANSITION

Back in the day men wore the ubiquitous jock strap for virtually all physical activity. They were basically a pouch supported by a broad elastic strap. ‘Jocks’ came in S, M or L (small, medium or liar). Temperature regulation was achieved by the lack of material and support depended on the age of the garment as elastic and sweat were not an ideal combination.


Finally, after many false dawns with inferior products, we have Runderwear™ for men. This breakthrough in comfort owes much to the experience of the distaff side of the gender divide – and that is no bad thing. At last we have sport specific underwear for men, designed and even guaranteed not to chafe. 

So how did the Runderwear™ men’s brief perform? This 60-something athlete and coach put his pants to the test in warm conditions on roads, trails and running track and in air conditioned gym sessions and core strength classes. The result – the Runderwear™ easily out-performed the runner!

First impressions are that the waist is a little higher than usual (think more Simon Cowell or Bridget Jones than Tom Daley) and the material feels soft, stretchy and warm. However, once in place they stay put and do a decent job of support where needed. Strategically placed perforations and excellent wicking properties deal with heat and sweat and there are, indeed, no seams to rub.

Overall, these are a useful addition to the kit bag and can be worn under tights or unlined shorts. In fact, this Runderwear™ convert has removed the ‘cheese grater’ mesh lining of a previously uncomfortable pair of shorts that can now be worn again without risking a visit to A&E.

At last... chaff free running.

Had just about given up with the belief there were running shorts out there that don’t chaff. Purchased the long shorts, and have to say they are wonderful. They are stable, breathable, comfortable and total chaff free.
I would like to highlight I was under the impression that these were “proper” shorts, however they could possibly be described as a base layer shorts. Some form of lightweight run shorts are recommended to wear over them to cover your modesty. Wearing my lightweight run shorts over the top of them didn’t detract from the long shorts benefits.
I typically run up to 21km.

Comfortable, well made, get some !

So breathable and awesome

What an amazing pair of shorts. So incredible you actually feel like wearing your own skin. What a feeling to run in these. And thanks for nice handwritten message that came through as well. I just love these shorts.

Great company, great service!

Runderwear delivers Excellent Customer Service!! Thank you Rianca

Different versions of exactly the same item I ordered

I ordered 5 pairs in two batches. The first batch was perfect 👌 the second is a mix of different versions and qualities. Not happy with that 😓

Hi Stefanie, thank you for your review and so sorry you weren't happy with the second batch you received. Its possible you received an older design the second time around of which we have a few left. The quality of the anti blister function should be the same though, but I will give you a call, Rianca
