For Your Viewing Pleasure… A Funny Video Review of My Travel Undies

Pinterest

A couple of months ago, I released the first Female Travel Underground newsletter on the topic of Travel Undies. In it, I did a brief write-up on the ever-so-famous Ex-Officio underwear since I am the proud owner of several pairs.

Since then, I have decided to make my blog more lively with *hopefully* weekly video posts running on Wednesdays. (Please don’t hold me to this – this is just a loose goal.) It just so happens that this week’s video, originally for the intention of benefiting FTU, is a closer look at… well… my panties…

…my travel ones at that!

Am I as funny as I think I am?

Do you own Ex-Officio underwear and feel the same? Do you absolutely hate them? Let us all know by leaving a lovely comment below. Peace!

    hahaha! So I definitely feel the need to make a guys version of this video… there are a lot of boxer-brief options out there, you know.

    You remind me of Isla Fisher.

    • Brooke April 22, 2010 at 4:06 pm #

      I totally had to google that name, but thanks! It must be the hair ;)

      • Steve April 23, 2010 at 1:08 am #

        It’s partly the hair, but you have similar mannerisms, too. I’m surprised nobody has ever told you that. She was the crazy sister in Wedding Crashers, if you’ve ever seen that.

        Oh, and she’s married to Borat. That’s not really relevant, but I thought I’d mention it.

    good review… I’ve wondered the same things about these underwear – whether or not they are worth the investment!

  6. Jason of Two Backpackers April 22, 2010 at 7:38 am #

    They are our favorite underwear! Well, those specific ones are Aracely’s favorite, I prefer the man underwear.

    • Brooke April 22, 2010 at 7:53 am #

      Haha, nice of you to correct yourself there ;)

    Love it Brooke and totally as funny as you think you are.

  8. Shannon OD April 22, 2010 at 10:07 am #

    That was great Brooke – I love that you just reviewed underwear, heh heh heh :-) You may have actually convinced me to pick up a pair, I’ve been pondering for quite some time!

    • Brooke April 22, 2010 at 4:08 pm #

      Ex-O should pay me for this! :)

  9. Cailin April 22, 2010 at 11:13 am #

    Great video Brooke! I’ve never heard of these underwear before! I enjoyed the music you added to the vid it really kept the whole thing rolling! maybe the people who make the underwear will see this video and give you a free pair now! :)

    • Brooke April 22, 2010 at 4:09 pm #

      Well thank you Miss Video-Maker! I have a hard time picking out music for this kind of stuff.

    cute ad. You are clever. Have a nice day. What will be next? LOL.

    Alec the twitter pest !

  11. Stephanie April 22, 2010 at 1:14 pm #

    Haha I’ve got a couple pairs of these and they ARE sturdy but they are just ugly as hell! When my parents got them for me (along with other backpacking gear) I was sure it’s because they wanted to ensure my chastity.

    Way to go Brooke, you are a brave lady!

    • Brooke April 22, 2010 at 4:12 pm #

      Hilarious! It could be a new marketing approach for them… If your partner is traveling without you – make sure they only take the ugly Ex-O undies with ‘em.

    Brooke and I wear the same underwear! RT @brookeschoenman: my latest video! http://bit.ly/9X2oeu

    Something tells me you knew this post would get a lot of traffic. I have a couple pairs of the men’s Ex-Officio boxers and they’re nice for most of the same reasons you mentioned in the video. I’ve been impressed with how quickly they dry though they tend to pick up lint quite easily. Cost is a huge negative – very expensive.

    • Brooke April 22, 2010 at 4:14 pm #

      I had wondered about the guys’ version and if the material was the same or not… the women’s is quite hardcore feeling – same for guys? From a view on another video it looked more like slick material?

  14. Candice April 22, 2010 at 11:54 pm #

    Do they cost like 438493493 dollars?

  15. whereishawkins April 23, 2010 at 9:24 pm #

    They are good underwear. RT @brookeschoenman Considered Ex-O #travel underwear? http://su.pr/4JbHPM #lp #matadorn http://myloc.me/6iP37

    Finally got to see this video! Been wondering whether or not I should buy a pair…will still ponder a bit.

    And yes, you are funny :-)

  18. Erica at ExOfficio April 27, 2010 at 4:58 am #

    Brooke,

    At ExOfficio, we love your underwear video. Fantastic & fun.

    To answer a couple of questions/comments about the underwear:

    Yes, the men’s and women’s underwear is made of the exact same material.

    Second, you’ll be happy to know that this Spring, we did a bit of revamping to the women’s underwear, which included making the waistband elastic less thick. Hopefully, that will eliminate all the problems of lines on your skin from the string bikini’s band.

    Also, this Summer — exclusively starting at REI — we’re launching a new line of women’s underwear, made from the same fabric, but with a sexier twist.

    So the people from ExOfficio left a comment on my video review post! — http://su.pr/4JbHPM #travel #lp

    I’m going to have to get me a pair of those, I think. But I have to say, I do like a pair of fresh undies every morning so I don’t know how long I could go wearing them!

  28. Chichi November 9, 2010 at 6:24 am #

    I immensely enjoyed your Travel Undies article, the video was even more entertaining. We also featured an undies article with the positive results too. We took an anti-VPL (visible panty lines) statement while traveling
