    Moisture wicking underwear

    Here is my situation. I need underwear that will breathe, that is moisture wicking and that isn't 100% polyester. It's not a good idea wear the Under Armor stuff because if you get blown up and are burned because of it, it will melt to your skin. I'd like to have a 50% polyester/50% cotton mixture, if that exists.

    Most girls I talk to need the same thing when they see me. I haven't been able to help them either. Sorry.

    I also cut out the crotch in my pants in order to let the boys breathe.

    I can't go within 500 ft of a school, but its the price you pay for comfort I guess

    Seriously, I have some Aeropostale undies that are the best. They are light and they seem to breathe well.

    You know they have a smartwool brand blend that, while its wool, is also wicking, not itchy, machine washable, and not necessarily too toasty.

    Re: Moisture wicking underwear

    Have you tried looking at a sportsman's store? No idea if it would exist, but could see them having something at Scheels or Bass Pro for the hunter-types.

    I assume this is for your deployment later this year? Any way you can write off the expense on your taxes as a "business expense" or something? I would think there'd be some way to at least get something back from it. Any CPAs on here to prove me right or wrong?
