Frequent Questions

What is the U-CORD?

Typical men’s underwear completely ignores the male anatomy, opting instead to just mash everything together and throw a cheap layer of cotton over it in an attempt to forget the problem. We’ve taken a fundamentally different approach and completely redesigned men’s underwear for the most comfortable experience possible.

Our patent-pending U-CORD is a simple idea. Attaching a slim, elastic cord that moves with you in a U-shaped loop to the waistband adds an additional piece of critical structure to men’s boxers where there was none. Containing your manhood in a separate Cockpit made of silky soft fabric that doesn’t slack or bunch up becomes possible and the friction-eliminating and sweat controlling benefits are immediately apparent the first try-on. 


What is your return policy?

Don’t worry! If you are unsatisfied with our product, we offer a full refund within 60 days after your order. Just email us at with your order number to start processing a return. Unopened products will have their return postage paid for. So that we can keep improving our products, we may politely ask you to fill out a small survey in order to process a return.


What material are Cockpit Boxer Briefs made from?

We use an incredible blend of 94% MicroModal / 6% Lycra for our Cockpit Boxer Briefs.

MicroModal is a premium fabric, the product of the modern textile industry. Fibers are made from sustainably grown beechwood trees and high-tech chemistry. You’d typically find MicroModal in high end light, stretchy clothing and we found out through testing that it had incredible softness and breathability, and the rare ability to retain these properties even when wet or damp. If you’ve never experienced it, it’s a game changer – think of the thinnest, softest cotton shirt you’ve ever felt, but doesn’t pill as easily, doesn’t get heavy and worthless when wet, and will stretch like spandex.
