I got these briefs for a trip to Hawaii. In the past I had used another brand, but I decided to try these. These briefs were much more comfortable than the other brand. I'll never go back to the other brand again. And, on the upside, these briefs were less expensive than the other brand, but the important thing to me was the comfort. These briefs didn't bind or chaff me like the other brand. I highly recommend these briefs to anyone, whether you're traveling or not, if you want underwear that you can wear once and then toss in the trash.
