Pump! is an underwear company headquartered in Montreal, Canada. Pump! Underwear combines sports, fun fashion trends and daring ideas into underwear. Pump! loves to keep their demographic open so that they can appeal to all audiences with their underwear. They don’t acknowledge one particular demographic for their underwear, they do generally display a look revolving around youth, fitness and sports.
Pump! does make boxer briefs, briefs and jockstrap styles and they typically have very stylish designs with a lot of contrasting colors so that you can stand out in the crowd. I recently reviewed 2 different pairs of underwear from Pump! and liked the Cooldown boxer briefs and didn’t like the Touchdown Panther Boxer Briefs/Trunks because it was very tight. Since it was 50/50, I decided to try Pump again for another set of underwear. If you enjoy reading my reviews, please look forward to a few more Pump! underwear – there will be a pair of Jockstraps.
As a straight guy, I was a bit worried reviewing Pump! at first, since some would think that Pump! was not meant for straight guys. If you are a long time reader of my reviews, you can see how open I am in describing my feelings with underwear. I also have no concerns exposing myself to any men with any sexual orientation. We all have the same parts and there is nothing to be shy about. Big or small, we all protect our crown jewels. My bottom line is that nobody abuses me or takes advantage of this mindset. I will continue writing with this and expressing my feelings of the clothing I review.
Based on the research, I found some people asking the same question and in short, Pump! could be worn by men of any sexual orientation. Also based on Pump! description in their About Us section, they specifically say that their underwear is for any demographic and really targeting youth, fitness and sports.
Enough said about demographics and the debate if Pump! is designed for a particular group of men. At the end, I purchased 2 pairs and I will wear them until it’s time for them to go. If you agree or disagree, please leave comments below – I would love to hear your feedback.
This pair of boxer briefs has some nice style to them. The orange color is definitely something that will attract your eyes if you were just wearing them. The contrast color of the navy blue helps show off your package and also the line that surrounds the back of your butt also helps add some details to the back. Overall I would say that the styling shows you well with a sex appeal.
They do offer these in black/white, red/navy/white, red/white, navy/white and military green/black colors. Some colors are good for the guys who want to show off your package like the red/navy/white, red, and the pair we are reviewing today. The other colors are darker and hide your package a bit more. So I do see that it has styles for every guy – the conservative you or the show-off you.
So the Touchdown Panther was overall tight and where the Cooldown Boxers were well fitted. I would say that these Varsity Free-Fit Boxers fit in between. Right after a nice hot shower, I put these on – the first thing I felt was the tight thighs. I personally don’t have big thighs and especially with this pandemic-less workout period, my thighs aren’t well built. So if you have well built thighs, you may consider these to be tighter than expected. More with our views in the Our Views section.
I took some photos for pointing my boys up and down, so you can reference how it will fit on you. You can read my flaccid size so you can reference it yourself. I will say these are a bit larger than the Touchdown series. Pointing up does have a little room to move until it pasts the pouch area.
Like the other Pump! underwear I review, the construction is decent. These are made with 78% Nylon, 22% Elastane. I am not sure if they provided the material for the inner pouch layer. The white fabric feels like it is white cotton like the Cooldown boxer briefs. The exterior material is totally meshed The exterior material is totally mesh. The navy piping pouch is sort of flat (it still has a bit of bulge in the stitch) and the legging area is much better than the thick waistband style of the touchdown boxers.
As noted above, the first thing I felt was the tightness in the legs, but overall it didn’t feel bad or any discomfort.
The full orange micro-mesh fabric is breathable, but my package was a bit wet when working in front of the computer all day. The room is a bit warm, and I think the white fabric is what makes it less breathable in the pouch area. I understand why the white fabric is needed so that it can:
- reduce exposure of your boys with a single layer of fabric
- extra fabric to protect your boys from zippers
- to absorb any remaining drips of fluids
however, I think they can use different fabrics that can help make the pouch more breathable. I did say that I feel that the fabric is too much, but some of the hair does stick out. It could mean that it’s time to do some man-scaping or the fabric is good enough and the problem is with my sweaty package. I did use a piece of tissue to wipe around the pouch area and it did catch a some sweat, but it didn’t soak the tissue at all. When I went to pee, my penis and sack was a bit sticky and I had to separate them before going. Apologies for being so graphic in the paragraph.
The fabric is smooth and high quality which makes it feel premium. The pouch area doesn’t have any separation between your sack and thighs, but the stronger piping does help create the boundaries.
The legs do roll up a little, but does not cause any discomfort. You’ll just need to adjust and pull them down if it gets to that point. You can see that in one of the photos.
The Pump! waistband does make a strong statement on the branding. The contrast stitch which they call the navy divider line from the lower pouch around the back is not flat at all. You can feel the line around your butt. It didn’t annoy me at all until I was focusing on comfort when reviewing these boxers. During day-to-day wear, you wouldn’t feel it much, unless you are wearing tight jeans and you feel the line around your butt.
As you can see, there is no fly so that you will have to go over the gate – which most readers according to our survey don’t go through the gate anyways.
Overall, I like the design and look of these boxers. Definitely they will catch people’s eyes when you are in the change room or anywhere you will be just wearing underwear.
It’s possible that it’s the first time wearing these boxers and the tight thighs will go away after a few more wears. I will update this review as I continue wearing them and see if they improve over time.
Will I buy another one? Yes
