"The ExOfficio Give-n-Go boxer briefs are the best investment in clothing I have made in years. They support very well and keep down the heat because of the breathing material they are made of.  No crazy bulky seams to rub you raw.  During the full two rides I only wore the underwear under my riding pants. Never any issues of stretching or material failure.  By far the best pair of underwear I have ever worn."       --- Kevin Woody, NMBDR Expedition Member and BDR Ambassador

"'Functional' clothing with an acute sense of style is a rare thing. Several of the ExOfficio pieces have become my “go to” items for daily use - down to the socks. While one might not consider the look of socks as overly crucial, it’s nice to sport something unique when walking around shoeless on an airplane. The underwear has a cool look as well, I’ll leave it up to the reader to decide when that becomes important.

My favourite pieces?  Virtually every “adventure” photography job I do makes use of the BugsAway Adventure Hat and Storm Logic jacket.  The BugsAway Adventure Hat folds perfectly into most any camera bag (big plus for me), and effectively keeps bugs away from my face while I’m shooting.  The Storm Logic jacket’s ability to convert into an airplane pillow is a huge plus when flying between different climates, or even camping at different altitudes.  The Amphi Pants seem at home in a campsite or office building.  Most often put into daily use are the Trip’r and Air Strip shirts, Amphi pants, Give-n-Go briefs, and BugsAway Hiker Crew Socks. Extremely comfortable with a look that fits a variety of contexts."         --- Jon Beck, ADV Photographer, Journalist, Actor

"My favorite piece was the Women's Give-N-Go Sport Mesh Bikini Briefs.  I give the briefs 5 stars!  They are truly cool, fresh and comfortable.  I love the stretch to fit, active, ultralight mesh, and smooth fabric waistband.

I also liked the Women's Sol Cool Long Sleeve Shirt.  When you are out in the sunny elements of 80+ degree temperatures all day long, it's nice to know that you are being protected with Icefil® treated fabric. The shirt feels nice and cool against the body.  I liked knowing that it has the highest sun protection rating for a garment, with UPF 50+.        --- Shalmarie Wilson, BDR Ambassador.  (Shal is holding the record for the most consecutive BDR's ridden - 5 in one season!)
