    Underwear for Fatbiking??

    Ok guys, hear me out. With all these recent threads "winter pants?" and "what kind of boots" popping up left and right. I just want to make sure I'm wearing the right kind of underwear for fatbiking, I mean, I used the search function for "unicorn fur man thong" but came up empty handed. Any suggestions? I need something that is soft like chamois, breathable (so the boys don't sweat), warm down to at least -60 f, and some thing that doesn't bunch up in the back. Also it would help if they could double as a tent in case of an emergency situation. thanx for the help.

    this looks promising, although I'm not sure i want to be associated with road bikers.

    The mankini works in all temps, is breathable, and provides great range of motion!!!

    i always go commando. just cause your riding in the snow is no reason for more than a long sleeved t-shirt and jeans. birkenstocks with wool socks too

    My boys were sweating just looking at that!
    Not really. I find the wool Ibex El Fito knickers to do the job pretty well. I notice a big difference when I don't wear them, such as cold(er) cheeks, thighs and knees.
    I do have to admit they have a seam in a rather lousy place for really long rides-right down the middle in front. Ask me about the bloody carnage in the ITI sometime. Not pretty at all. I still wear them though, as that's a different amount of riding than normal.

    I prefer the G string version actually, when I raise my arms I typically get a 20% increase in wattage.
