Swell Vision’s Bambo Fiber Boxers Review

When you wear something that feels so good you don’t even noticeĀ  you’re wearing it, life is officially GREAT, in my humble opinion. This is especially true when you’ve got a little something in the nether regions. My experience wearing Swell Vision’s Bambo Fiber Boxers reminded my of how Flanders felt in The Simpsons…

It’s simply crazy how soft these boxers feel. They’re made of 95% bamboo rayon and 5% spandex. So they stretch when needed, feel smooth and cool to the touch. I do think the biggest selling point for most guys will be that you won’t feel hot down there, but you never feel an uncomfortable cold. It’s just the right amount of coolness.

Since these boxers are made from bamboo they are several factors that stand out from typical fabric. Bamboo itself grows fast and uses little water. So this creates a fabric that is environmentally friendly to harvest. Bamboo fibers help fight odor on several fronts. They will wick moisture and allow it to escape as the fiber is very breathable.

If you’re one of those people that likes walking around in only your boxers then you’ll also like this next design feature. Swell Vision has created what they call a Smart Pocket. It’s large enough to put a couple items like cash, cards, and maybe even some keys. At first I was worried that with nothing in the pockets this extra piece would get in the way as I was walking around town, but I never even noticed it. It’s like it disappeared as I went about my life.

Of course that’s all great, but the design is where the party begins! There are six fun designs to choose from. I got campfire because I bring the heat to the party. There’s also shark, mountain, cannonball, moon and stars, and for those of you who want something more simple a solid black color is available as well.

By now you know that I love these boxers. If you like wearing boxers you’ve probably have never worn ones that felt like this. Try them out and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Swell Vision Atticus CR39 Sunglass Review

Does it make sense to put plastic on your ears? Most of us do it when we wear typical sunglasses. That idea sent me on a internet quest to find an alternative.

I stumbled upon Swell Vision, which is based out of South Carolina. Their frames are made out of bamboo. Of course this is far more sustainable than plastic! Exploring more about Swell Vision I discovered that they also put part of their sales towards supporting local Balinese children so that they can attend the Green School in Bali, Indonesia.

Within a week of placing the order I received the Atticus CR39 Polarized Bamboo Sunglasses. Immediately after I put them on I noticed multiple differences from my previously regular pair of shades. They are super light weight. Coming in at only 0.9oz you’ll barely feel them on your face or ears. That red pinched nose effect was greatly diminished even after wearing the sunglasses for several hours. The other noticeable difference to me was how breezy my face felt with the sunglasses. There was something to the design that allowed plenty of air flow helping me feel cool.

There’s lots to mention about the lenses as well. They’re CR-39 polycarbonate lenses that are impact resistant. Of course I’ve tried not to drop them to see how resistant they are. The lenses are UV400 which blocks 90-100% of UVA/UVB radiation. They’re polarized with an anti-reflective coating. What this all means is that you’ll see clearer on sunny days. You won’t get that awful glare. You’ll see deeper blacks, but not feel as if the frames make the world too dark. Maintaining the lenses is simple as they include a micro-fiber cloth and pouch.

Across the board these sunglasses hit every mark. They’re a cool design, have eco-friendly frames, are light weight, and have high quality lenses. If you want to be adventurous like me, take the plunge into the world of bamboo frames. They’re simply better than plastic frames.
