Winter 2011 Comet: Wind Protection For Men's Unmentionables (Read 1068 times)

    For something "unmentionable", men sure seem to mention them a lot. Not specifically in RA....just in life.

     

    more than we should certainly.

     

    but probably less than women chat about boobs don't you think? 

     

    in this case, since freezing this area is relatively common and very uncomfortable I think it's excusable mentioning. 

     

    but yeah... all my running solutions seem to be very cheap, and quite a few involve socks.  they make decent gloves and they protect  the somewhat mentionables.

    In an infinite universe, the one thing sentient life cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion

    Needs more cowbell!

      more than we should certainly.

       

      but probably less than women chat about boobs don't you think? 

       

      And still less than men chat about boobs.

        Oh, I wasn't complaining about this thread. Just an observation I've made. Wink And Zoomy is right. Men chat about boobs. A lot.

           

           

          Nah.  By the time winter gets here in two and a half months he'll either have figured out how to get dressed or quit running.

           

          And anyway, I usually just use one of these:

           

           

          Just be careful zipping it up.

           

           

          Heh heh.

            Santa brought me some Sugoi Wind Boxers. Like 'em.

            I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...

              Collating all the suggestions here, apparently I should be looking for a wind sock.  I'll try the Sugoi stuff; in the interest of TMI, I won't report back.

              I went with the Asics ASX Wind Boxers.  Haven't run more than 6-8 miles in them yet, but I like 'em.

                    Pearl Izumi Men's Barrier Liner have a super snug fit; but they have held up for 2 winters.

                     

                    I purchased some Asis wind boxers last year and they formed a hole on the seams after 4 - 5 runs. After 6 runs the hole was to big to provide "support".

                     

                    Sugoi Men's MidZero Wind Boxer I just got these a few months ago. Very comfortable!

                      I have a pair of compression shorts with a pocket right in front where the fly should be.  On cold days, a sock goes in the pocket. 

                      The tangents are moot.

                          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                            I suspect not.

                            Beware, batbear...

                              I haven't been following the thread, but I will unabashedly say that the best thing I have found is...The "MANtyliner."  Seriously.  I live in a house full of chicas and I've found that the pantyliner, properly placed in the shorts, not only breaks the wind, but absorbs sweat and wicks it away from little Edward - Prince of Peniland.
