It is my understanding that MyPakage is a brand that started as a Kickstarter campaign which flourished into a brand that now stands alone. The concept was inventive and something I see a market for too. I’m glad I decided to invest in a set and plan to purchase more in the future
I’m a decently active guy, I do a lot of stuff in the outdoors that makes me sweat. While it might be an uncomfortable subject for some, whats going on with your junk during all of this can be a real pain, literally. While playing airsoft during a 24 hour consecutive games I chaffed so badly I still carry permanent scars from that instance. Now it happens more and more frequently because of that scarring and really hinders my activities that I do for fun. Enter MyPakage Underwear. The garment moves your junk into its own separate pocket eliminating possibility of chaffing (plus other benefits.)
I ordered my set of MyPakage Underwear off of their web-store. Specialized underwear isn’t exactly something you go to eBay for. There are several different types of MyPakage that are broken down via fabric type. After some research and recommendations from people on the TADjunkies Facebook group I decided to go with the Weekend as it appeared to be a healthy balance between an everyday wear underwear and the Under Armor Compression short style.
Item shipped quick and was in my hands within a week and a half. The packaging was very professional and you’d never believe this all started as a Kickstarter
PRICE: 30.00 W/O SHIPPING
Upon the arrival of the MyPakage underwear I snapped the above shot of the packaging and decided to hold off on wearing it until I was going to be out on an adventure of some kind. Truthfully the initial impression of this product wasn’t great. The stitching looked good and it was apparent that the garment would hold together. My lack of faith was in the way the ‘Keyhole’ was stitched together.
Now, in case you can’t figure it out the ‘Keyhole Technology’ in MyPakage underwear is the pouch where your junk goes and the hole looks like a keyhole…and your dick is the key…its all very subtle imagery really.
Despite my lack of faith I decided to wear these fine briefs during our hike up Mt Monadnock several weeks ago. I was initially worried, but once we got moving I realized that these were probably the greatest leap forward in gender specific underwear since the thong.
The plus was noticeable almost immediately, once you are all ‘situated’ inside of the underwear the ‘keyhole’ effectively creates a soft synthetic membrane between skin that frequently chafes for me thus making for the most comfortable hike I've had in a very long time.
I then went on to wear this product for a GoRuck Light event and after sweating for hours, carrying a telephone pole down Newbury Street in the rain, and even taking a swim in the Charles River I experienced no chaffing effect what so ever. It served as a great way to validate the results of my Monadnock Hike.
(Testing the capacity of the ‘Keyhole’, Yes that’s a banana)
I will be buying more of the MyPakage Underwear and starting to phase out as much of the Hanes pairs I have in my life. The product is expensive but it is built better than ratty Hanes underwear and is better thought out than the Underarmor Boxer Jock.
When I bought MyPakage Underwear I was promised “An Underwear that makes my balls feel like they’re being cradled by the daughter of a wealthy brewery owner.” I can solidly say, they do not disappoint.
I will also be ordering a pair of the more 'sport oriented' MyPakage Action Brief to review as well.
