The Full Story+

These classic 6” leg boxer shorts make a superbly comfortable base layer for whatever life has in store for you, be it a long day in the office or something altogether more adventurous.

With flatlocked displaced seams and anatomical panelling these technical boxers ensure all day comfort whether you’re at the office or out hillwalking.

The blended technical fibres are highly absorbent, high-wicking and crease resistant. Combined with elastane for stretch, these boxers are soft to the touch and allow plenty freedom of movement. They're also extremely durable so they won’t fade or lose their shape and are easy to care for, simply wash in the machine or by hand and they’ll be dry in no time ready to go again.

With the Aether Boxers there’s no need to compromise on comfort for high-performance technology.

We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.

Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.

All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.

They fit, they are comfy. Thats it !


Great fit as others have reported, I think some of the support maybe comes from the fact that theres no gaping hole in the seam to allow easy access for the urinal stop, I know there are some reviews stating that there is no access to the twig and berries but i cant honestly remember wearing some with that feature? So i'm used to the over the counter option and the fit is great, leg length fine, waist band fit is good and they dont ride up your leg so the trade off is you dont have to push them back down your thighs but you do have to unfurl the waistband to allow access.

Oh dear. A design faux pas!


A massive supporter, and wearer of Rohan, I was surprised to put on these extra long boxers and find no “front access”.

Comfortable - yes. Practical - NO!!

Thank you for your review. Please be assured we have passed your feedback on to our Design Team.

A design conundrum


I usually wear Rohan Cool Silver trunks, but whilst buying some Rohan clothing for me, for Christmas, my wife decided to buy me 2 pairs of Aether Boxer shorts.

I wore a pair yesterday and I have to agree with other reviewers that they are extremely comfortable. However, imagine my consternation when visiting the loo when at first I thought I must have put them on back to front, but further investigation confirmed that I was wearing them correctly and that these boxers do not have a front opening. The longer leg in this boxer design, compared with the leg length of the cool silver shorts presents a logistical problem, as the close fit on the leg presents is difficult to pull up and I was, pardon the pun, relieved that I made this discovery in the comfort of the downstairs loo, rather than when stood at a public urinal ...

The ones I have used, after laundry, will probably reside at the bottom of my underwear drawer, the other pair, still unopened, will be going back to the Rohan shop.

I have built up a large wardrobe of Rohan clothing over 35 years and have always considered that each garment offered good design, form, function and practicability. These Aether Boxers fall short of the mark

I prefer boxers to briefs .. less chafing .. and these ones are great. Very comfortable and lightweight.

I have no idea why the website says they weight 140g per pair. The ones I have weight nearly half that, 79g.

Thanks for the feedback regarding the product weight. I can confirm the website is now showing the correct weight.

Aether boxers the best I have tried


A couple of years ago I changed from briefs to boxers. Different brands of boxers give a varying degree of support and containment but Rohan's Aether Boxers are outstanding in this respect. This is partly achieved by not having a front opening. This might be inconvenient for those who need to urinate frequently but for me the thrice-daily inconvenience is more than balanced by the continuous support. The promised odour-inhibition seems valid so far but I am skeptical about the claimed 3-hour drying time. This item is very high quality but rather expensive so I cannot rate it as "great value".

Review of Men’s Aether Boxers


Despite being a Rohan fan for over 30 years I have for some time resisted buying Rohan underwear as I perceived it as not being of good value for this type of garment. Having recently purchased two pairs of Aether Boxers my opinion has completely changed, I have never worn such comfortable underwear. Once again well done Rohan a genuine success..
