Every pair of SAXX Underwear comes equipped with our patented BallPark Pouch™ technology. Designed to reduce skin-on-skin friction, this 3D hammock-shaped pouch keeps everything in place. Constructed to accommodate the male anatomy, the BallPark Pouch™ allows for natural support and movement. Thanks to breathable mesh panels and no exposed stitching, this piece of internal tech provides the separation and space guys need to go about their day distraction-free. All styles start with an ergonomic nine-panel construction to create 3D support around glutes, thighs, quads and hamstrings. The seams that connect each panel are strategically placed to eliminate chafing at potential friction points, flipping the script on traditional flatseam construction. Counter to conventional methods, they reverse the stitching, placing the flatter, softer side against the skin. This eliminates all unwanted chafe, itch and friction.
