BawBags Underwear – Apparel Review

BawBags Underwear – Apparel Review

If you value your crown jewels or your tuppence, then BawBags are probably the best people to look after those little (or big) treasures.

We discovered BawBags last year and have become big fans ever since and are over the moon to be reviewing some of their latest designs. They have now become the pants (underwear) we grab when we hit the trails, either hiking or biking but we even use them for normal daily use too, they are just so damn comfortable!

BawBags have always made bright, vibrant and fun designs because as they say life is too short for boring boxers! and we totally agree!

They have a great sense of humour and you can see this with their creative acronyms such as their TWAT (Technical Wicking Active Technology) fabrics. What?! It makes total sense to us.

Look and Feel

BawBags have a huge range of funky designs and colours for men and women, which was the big appeal for us. They’re a fun brand and this really comes out in their designs.

“In 2013 we added our first base layers using the TWAT fabric, to the Bawbags range.”

Be it socks, gloves, jerseys or underwear. If you can have a bit of fun with clothing, especially in the outdoor lifestyle range…then why the hell not.

OK, you could say nobody is going to see them under your clothing so what’s the point? But who cares! You know you’ve got them on and we know how sexy underwear makes us feel…that’s right…damn sexy!

Fit and Quality

The majority of the ones we tested were from their humorously imaginative titled, TWAT range. Which stands for Technical Wicking Active Technology, of course! Funny? We think so.

The TWAT fabric is used in their Cool De Sacs range which have a silky cool, light feel to them. When you hoist them up you will notice there’s plenty of elasticity in the waist band and the main fabric sections, so they hug your butt and upper thighs very nicely.

We’ve got one pair at least 12 months old, so consider these as our long-term test pair and they’re not showing any signs of slacking off. Still toight like a toiger!

Who Are They?

Bawbags Underwear was established in 2007 like so many other great ideas, in a pub. The idea was “a mission to keep the nation’s baws tidy” and in the process, raise money for cancer charities at the same time. Well, that sounds like a great idea to us. We always knew beer produced the best ideas.

Since that time, BawBags have raised well over £25,000 for charity and continue to support Orchid and more recently Medical Detection Dogs as well.

“Each year we continue to work hard to come up with some exciting designs so your baws are kept tidy in the finest style!”

Over the years the Bawbags Pro Team has grown to include some of the world’s best skiers, snowboarders, BMXers, skaters and other action sports athletes plus top rugby professionals and even Olympians and Commonwealth Gold medallists wearing their gear!

Conclusions:

If you’re in the market for some new undies, then why not check BawBags out. They ship from the UK but are well worth the relatively short wait. With a large range of mens and womens underwear and base layers in mind boggingly fun designs, there’s something for everyone.

They have a very, very nice hugging fit and the Cool De Sacs range with their TWAT fabric has an impressive cooling sensation. So perfect for active pursuits.

 Price: From £7.99 – £12.50

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I'm also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them. So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.

  • They’re baccccckkkkk... The Loam Grips are back and fully stocked (just like questionable 90s fashion, but better!)
  • Whether you're going for a day trip or a week of adventures, The North Face Base Camp duffles are roomy enough inside for all your gear. Just keep on cramming kit in there and you'll be surprised how much you can get into this is the iconic, super tough expedition duffel. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • How do you carry your junk? @allmountainstyle seem to have it all wrapped up with their OS Strap. 👍🏼 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • Threading our way through to the weekend with the @monsroyale MTB gear.🤘🏼 📸 @richardmcgibbon

  • The @granite_design ROCKnROLL is a perfect companion to take on those longer rides where a trailside fix is crucial to getting you home. The whole package weighs only 136g, so adding it to your pack or hip belt is low-cost in terms of weight, considering the ROCKnROLL has all the bits that you'll need to do your trailside fix. Now you can live the ROCKnROLL lifestyle you've always dreamed about!
  • Wow! Pretty much sums up what we thought of the @hentydesigns Enduro Backpack. If you're intrigued by these new age bum bags then have a read of our review on our website. | Photo credit: @richardmcgibbon
  • WHISTLER PERFORMANCE LUBES

There is a concern that eco-friendly products are not as effective as non-eco products. We have to call bullshit on this. The WPL range of lubricants is as good, if not better, than any non-eco friendly product on the market. best of all it doesn't harm the environment or you! | 📸@richardmcgibbon | #lube #lubedup #silkysmooth
  • With so many hydration gels, tabs and powders out there, it can be a little bewildering which ones to choose. We all have our favourites and over the years we tend to stick with what we know, so when we discover a new brand, we’re a little reluctant at first to go and spend our hard earned money on something that we don’t know will work for us, but after reading about @hdxmix story and the founder behind it, we must admit, we got very interested, indeed. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
