>> So for non-swimming activities, I wear non-cotton,
briefs (Duofold brand made of Coolmax, purchased from Campmor) under my
nylon hiking shorts or zip-off pants. And I always use anti-fungal
powder to help keep things dry and comfy and keep jock itch at bay. <<
I've had pretty much the same experience as you have had. I like
boxer shorts, and I use Gold Bond medicated powder. When
I sometimes leave the powder at home since it adds more weight. What type
powder do you use?
A friend of mine recommended using olive oil between the thighs to combat
chaffing when wearing shorts with mesh liners. It works pretty well, but
I prefer the boxer shorts.
