this might be a wierd question but what kind of underwear does the males on here wear when doing these long distance walks? When I did a 20 mile walk last year I wore normal boxer style shorts and after about 10 miles I was a bit sore on my inside top of thigh.

What do you all wear? tight pants? baggy pants? no pants!!?!!

Never had any problems in this area! Perhaps you need to check the "angle of the dangle" is not being inhibited by your underwear!

Rohan briefs - washed daily - wear a pair and wash a pair - quick drying - long lasting - comfortable

you've probably got a seam rubbing you sore - had a similar problem once walking round Kinder Scout - very uncomfortable by the end of the day - had to strip off and sit in a pool on the way down Grindsbrook

When I wake up, if I'm hanging to the left I wear boxers. To the right, y-fronts. The middle? When it's like that who wants to go walking!!!!

You may not have got your answer Lee, but you have certainly caused a chuckle in this household. Sorry I know that this could be a serious problem for you guys, we ladies have concerns about which bra to wear!!! Don't even go there you lot.

Oh God - now I am gonna be looking at any male walkers on the C2C in May and wonder what underwear they are wearing eek

Which Bra? - depends on how much hill decending there is!

Mmmm. I have seen many a well proportioned lady experiencing whiplash on a hill descent in the lake lands.

As to mens wear: if they are on tip toes they are wearing boxers.

By the the winter I have found it warmest to wear no under garments. It is best to let nature swing in the warm air currents...a bit like wearing a kilt.
