I haven’t worn men’s underwear from any of the big three brands in the United States – Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, and Jockey – since I was a kid. However, in 2022, I purchased a bunch of men’s underwear from Jockey as they were having a blowout sale, and I wanted to try them. I was very pleasantly surprised!

I previously wrote about my experience with Jockey’s modal boxer briefs. Then, I wrote about my experience with Jockey tanga briefs. But today, I want to review Jockey Microfiber Boxer Briefs.

Why I Bought My Jockey Microfiber Boxer Briefs

I bought these specific Jockey microfiber boxer briefs for two reasons: I love microfiber and because of the color.

The “Tulipa” color is unique, although sadly, Jockey doesn’t make this color anymore. I want to expand my underwear collection with bolder colors and patterns, and these striking reddish-pinkish boxer briefs qualify. I also like the black “racing stripes” on the front near the pouch, which are the air vents; all colors have this design.

Jockey also makes several other colors, including some cool patterns, so these Jockey boxer briefs are also a great way to add color to your underwear collection. But in addition to the color, I also chose these boxer briefs because they are microfiber.

What is microfiber underwear?

Microfiber – usually made from polyester, polyamide, or nylon blended with Spandex/elastane – is a smooth material that is soft against the skin. Microfiber underwear is made to be “moisture-wicking.” In other words, because microfiber repels water, microfiber underwear keeps you dry when you sweat. Cotton is the opposite because cotton retains moisture; hence, why towels are made from cotton.

While I don’t wear microfiber underwear every day anymore – I believe bamboo and modal are far better everyday underwear – I love to put on microfiber underwear now and then. It is especially good when you intend to sweat a lot, such as playing sports, hiking, or working out at the gym.



While not talked about as much, I also believe microfiber is a great material to wear for date night. Its silky smooth material is a great fabric to feel and touch. Microfiber underwear also looks sexier because microfiber has a sheen to it and thus looks more luxurious. Just don’t wear the same microfiber boxer briefs you just wore to the gym – shower and change first!

Speaking of which, I recommend changing your microfiber underwear after sweating because microfiber doesn’t breathe as easily as other materials. Humidity and bacteria can build up and be uncomfortable and potentially cause odors. Cheap and low-quality microfiber underwear can also have an odor because it is a manufactured material. Stay away from cheap polyester underwear, especially 100% polyester underwear.

The mesh vents around the pouch are a nice touch to promote airflow.

Did I Like My Jockey Microfiber Boxer Briefs?

Yes! These Jockeys are a solid pair of microfiber boxer briefs. I really like the color and the material. They felt great and on par with my Calvin Klein microfiber boxer briefs. The pouch was nice, although I couldn’t test the “chafe-proof” part of the pouch since I don’t have chafing problems. But I didn’t get any chafing from these boxer briefs, so that’s good. 🙂

My husband also tested these boxer briefs, and he likes them. He may like them even more than I do! My only real complaint is the price of $18/pair. Although they are nice, they also aren’t anything that special. I prefer these boxer briefs to be around $10/pair, on par with my Puma Performance Boxer Briefs. At $18/pair, I’d compare these Jockeys to my Calvin Klein microfiber boxer briefs – and probably get the Calvin Klein boxer briefs.

Fortunately, Amazon has sales throughout the year on these Jockey microfiber boxer briefs. Thus, if you can snag some under $10/pair, then I’d buy them. But at $18/pair, consider either the Puma or Calvin Klein microfiber boxer briefs I mentioned above or New Balance athletic boxer briefs, where one three-pack costs the same as one pair of these Jockey microfiber boxer briefs.

The Details of Jockey Microfiber Boxer Briefs

As usual, I use the following nine criteria to judge every pair of men’s underwear.

  • Length: Jockey makes 3″ trunks and 6″ and 8.5″ microfiber boxer briefs with the specific “chafe-proof” pouch. The 6″ version is a regular set of boxer briefs, and the ones I am wearing in this blog post. The 8.5″ long-leg boxer briefs are ideal if you have larger thighs and want to prevent your boxer briefs riding up or if your legs get irritated easily from your shorts and pants (chafing). The 3″ trunks are ideal if you want something sexier or prefer less material covering your legs for greater air circulation.

  • Price: Each of these Jockey microfiber boxer briefs costs $18/pair at full price. That is a bit steep compared to other similar contenders, such as the Puma Performance Boxer Briefs. And at $18/pair, you would want to comparison shop with Calvin Klein microfiber boxer briefs. However, Amazon often has certain colors on sale throughout the year. If you can snag some for less than $10/pair, that is a much better deal, and I would stock up.
  • Colors and Patterns: As I mentioned earlier, I loved Jockey’s different colors and patterns. I think it is fun to mix and match the colors. Of course, Jockey also has the standard black, blue, and gray boxer briefs if that is more your style.
  • Material and Fabric: These Jockey Microfiber Boxer Briefs are made from 90% recycled polyester and 10% Spandex/elastane. Very cool that Jockey uses recycled polyester – I love it! Also, my requirement for all polyester underwear is that they contain at least 10% Spandex/elastane, so these boxer briefs meet my criteria.
  • Flys: Because of the “chafe-proof” pouch, these specific boxer briefs do not have a fly. However, you can buy Jockey microfiber boxer briefs with a fly, but they aren’t labeled with a “chafe-free” pouch. I wouldn’t worry about it unless you do have chafing problems in your pouch area.

  • Ball pouch: These Jockeys have a standard, non-separated ball pouch. However, Jockey specifically advertises these ball pouches as “chafe-proof,” meaning they aren’t supposed to irritate the skin around your penis and balls. I don’t suffer from chafing, so judging whether it makes a difference is hard. But I do appreciate the mesh vents that are a part of the “chafe-proof” pouch for added air circulation.
  • Branded Waistband: Yes, Jockey brands its microfiber waistbands with the Jockey logo around the waistband.
  • Multipacks: Amazon doesn’t sell multipacks of these specific microfiber boxer briefs with the “chafe-proof” pouch.
  • Design Country: United States.

I recommend these Jockey microfiber boxer briefs to men who are looking for classic boxer briefs for sweaty situations and love the mixture of patterns and colors you can get. If you suffer from skin irritation around your penis or balls, you may want to try these “chafe-proof” pouch underwear to reduce chafing. Or simply guys who like the fact that these boxer briefs are made from 90% recycled polyester. 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

What is microfiber underwear?

Microfiber – usually made from polyester, polyamide, or nylon blended with Spandex/elastane – is a smooth material that is soft against the skin. Microfiber underwear is made to be “moisture-wicking.” In other words, because microfiber repels water, microfiber underwear keeps you dry when you sweat. Cotton is the opposite because cotton retains moisture; hence, why towels are made from cotton.

Does the “chafe-proof” pouch prevent chafing?

Jockey claims its microfiber pouch won’t cause chafing around your groin. However, since I don’t have problems with chafing, I could not truly test this out. Nonetheless, the pouch was quite comfortable, and I had no problems.

Which length of the Jockey Microfiber Boxer Briefs should I get? 3 inches, 6 inches, or 8.5 inches?

I would get the 3-inch version if you like trunks and shorter legs. If you have chafing and skin irritation problems on your legs and thighs, or if you have thicker thighs and suffer from underwear riding up, buy the 8.5-inch version. For everyone else, get the standard 6-inch boxer brief version.

What is a good price for these boxer briefs?

Under $10/pair is ideal. I would *not* pay full price – $18/pair – for these boxer briefs. At full price, you should consider a very high-quality brand like Mack Weldon’s AIRKNITx boxer briefs.
