I don't know if they are any good or not but the commercials crack me up every time.

Keeping the bait and tackle in its respective place and not promoting fungus is a must have.

I bought some of those 6 months back. Absolutely love them. Duluth are the best. They are a little pricey but worth it IMO.

Switched over to Duluth, after years of Jockeys, whose quality had deteriorated greatly over the last 3 years.

Fast-drying, no creep, don't get the 'basement sweat' like with other brands. No blowouts of seams so far, either.

One less thing to think about as you go through the day. Expensive, but seem much more durable, so I guess the cost over time factor is a big positive.

What material are they made of that prevents or wicks sweat and is Duluth the only importer of underwear using this material?

I don't know how proprietary the specific material is, but it's 97% 3% spandex. Nothing groundbreaking. The weave of the material is specific to them, and may be the exclusive part of the Duluth Trading design. In my opinion they are far superior to traditional underwear, but I have yet to try other premium brands to compare.

It looks like there are a lot of choices using nylon and spandex so I suspect there is a lower cost alternative out there.

Looks like Amazon has so many choices it's gonna take me a while to sort through and pick some to try.

After doing some research I find a lot of fabric choices out there with considerable variations in price. There's no easy way to compare the fabric of online offers but nylon/spandex is not limited to the high priced brands. I also see design variation including a two pouch design to solve moisture problems.

I am experimenting with a simple fix that would resolve dampness with regular as well as moisture wicking fabric briefs. I won't go into detail other than saying it involves vertical carry and a loop.

Fruit of the Loom makes a knock off of them. Way less expensive and very comfortable.

Tried out a pair last year. Immediately bought a few more. Will replace more over time, but they are expensive.

Thanks to the OP and all who contributed. For years I have been wearing Hanes cotton mid-rise briefs thinking cotton was best for wicking. In warm weather I experience sweat rash or whatever on tender upper inner thigh area and the hem of the leg opening made it worse. I settled on the following, five pair for $25 from Amazon and made of the right material (93%poly, 7% elastane). Super comfortable, time will tell how they will hold up.
