Dont know if this has been covered already but what underwear does everyone recommend for running in. I've tried skin tight boxers and briefs etc.. but they all seem to have their own problems and Ive not found that 'perfect' one yet.

 Ive been thinking about giving these all in one tyoe things a go - what do you all think?:

I've never bothered - I just use shorts with a liner and they do the job just fine.  When it gets cold, I just put Ronhill Tracksters over the top of the shorts.  Less to think about, fort out for and wash - job done.

Keeping it simple us usually the best way I guess!

Works for me

Commando style and shorts with a lining for me.

In the winter I'll wear a pair of cycling shorts and then non lined shorts over the top... keeps you in place and snug.

Don't.. and I repeat DON'T wear just cycling shorts for running, it does look like a divided sign... and no-one, not even the wife, wants to see that!

SHorts with lining, or somethign like these if I am weraing long tights.

These are actually VERY comfy, dont chaf etc

...you would just be disappointed though when removed. Bit like false advertising really

when i used to wear compression shorts under my running shorts (not any more) it was for chafing reasons, i liked the M&S sports shorts. mid thigh length, very soft and comfortable

M&S briefs / slips or whatever they are called are great. Never had any problems with them

Even keep my boys in the barracks. Must be good

Yeah I'd agree with M&S ultra sport underwear - the long leg ones for me helps keep chaffing to a min.

Also I have salomon lined shorts which have a inner liner so don't wear other underwear on that

I'd second the M&S sport underwear. I preferred the longer leg ones as I found the slips did chafe on anything more than a short run.

FGL Active range from www.figleaves.com

I normally wear the briefs under SKINS half-tights

FGL Active 2 Pack Briefs

I find that more comfortable than wearing just the long trunk version from the same range

FGL Active 2 Pack Long Trunks

Personally I never got on with the M&S Ultrafit range because, like everything else at M&S, the sizing was too large for me.

I wear Nike pro compression type shorts. They are quite cheap, and have lasted me years. Wick sweat, no chaffing, and keeps the little fella cosy.

I'd like to recommend calvin klein underwear on http://www.hotcalvinklein.com/ I wear , very good cotton can protect our thighs, let me move freely

Would recommend Odlo as a very good brand, tried quite a few and these are the best for keeping cool but also being supportive

Have been using Nike Pro Core but they are expensive and a bit fragile in my opinion. HI have recently tried Kalenji from Decathlon and both the briefs and shorts have been great. They are cheap too.
