The Full Story+

Our Alpha Silver boxers have been designed to provide an ultra-technical, yet super-comfortable base layer for customers who want unrivalled comfort and performance whether they’re at work or doing high-intensity activity.

These anatomically shaped boxer shorts are the perfect start to an effective clothing system. They've got built-in stretch to allow freedom of movement and will retain their shape for years to come. We've treated them with Silvadur™, a technology which binds the fabric with tiny traces of silver helping to prevent unwanted microbes developing.

Designed for an active outdoor lifestyle these boxers have flatlocked seams, a double layer gusset and a low profile waistband to ensure maximum comfort.

The mesh fabric construction increases airflow and also helps to reduce drying time, very handy if you're travelling light with a busy itinerary.

Start your clothing layering system with the best in class base layer boxers for unbeatable comfort and performance.

Fabric: 95% polyamide, 5% elastane with Dynamic Moisture Control™ and with Silvadur™ odour control 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.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hours

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.

ANTI ODOUR SILVER

Garments treated with our Anti Odour Silver technology benefit from the natural antimicrobial properties of silver. Tiny traces of silver, distributed evenly throughout the garment, inhibit the growth of bacteria reducing mould and odour. This treatment is permanent – it will never wash or wear out.

DYNAMIC MOISTURE CONTROL™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

Uncomfortable & overpriced

★☆☆☆☆

I bought these as Rohan stopped supplying the best underwear ever made, the Men’s Cool Silver Trunks. They feel like a pair of cycling Lycra shorts, especially with the length - the best part was getting them off. I’ve bought Rohan products since the 80’s but rightly feel ripped off - a sub-standard product with an eye-watering price. Don’t bother buying these - you get better in packs of three on the high street.

Thank you for your review. The Alpha Silver Boxers are made from 95% polyamide, 5% elastane with Dynamic Moisture Control and with Silvadur odour control technology so they are both stretchy and durable. This style also has low bulk seams which reduces chafing and enhances comfort. Sorry you have been disappointed with this style, your feedback has been passed to our Design team.

Great fabric and comfort

★★★★★

I am a huge fan of Rohan gear and these boxers are no exception. Good support and seams that are moved to be out of the way when walking. They wash really well and dry quickly. If you are worried about using synthetic fibres then I suggest that you try a pair - These are in a totally different league than anything made of cotton, never clammy, always fresh. I travel a lot and these can be washed in a hotel sink and ready for the next day without any problem (I roll them in a towel before hanging to get them that bit dryer - another great addition to my travel wardrobe.

Review Alpha Silver Boxers

★★★★★

I have long been a fan of Rohan's merino wool products but I was surprised to find that these artificial fibre garments have the same anti-stinkiness. You can wear them several days without giving offense, or lightly sponge the critical part(s) and dry overnight. As boxers, they give you very good support and containment. There is no front opening which might be a problem for some people. If my washing machine breaks down during the Covid-19 lockdown, my cunning plan is to switch to Alpha Silver boxers for everyday wear and not just for travel and hillwalking.
