The Best Underwear for Travel (Yes, Really)

Let’s face it, travelling requires comfort.

Long journeys require both comfort and style and whether you’re driving, flying or otherwise, you want to be in clothes that don’t pinch, pull or add extra pressure to your trip.

Here at Poolside we’ve dug below the surface to find the best underwear for travel (yes, really). Because ahead of Europe summer or your next getaway, comfort starts from the very first layer.

Step One SmoothFit Full Brief ($27)

Step One was created after founder, Greg Taylor, experienced unbearable chafing on a multi-day hike. Unable to find a solution to make hiking more comfortable, he created Step One. Famous for their “Ultraglyde” panels which sit between your thighs to reduce friction, choose your travel underwear in three styles - trunk, bikini or SmoothFit. Last year, Step One became the first clothing company in Australia to achieve end-to-end FSC™ certification.
