Big Men Can Wear These
I usually order XL (38-40) for all my shorts, so it was no different when ordering these. When they arrived, I was surprised to find they were voluminous. They would easily fit a guy 42-44. Once I got the correct size, I found the pouch is not as roomy as on the Sport Pro Midway (which also runs a bit large by about a half inch to an inch). I had to send the first order of Activemicro Midways back and downsize to a Large. The large are a bit more snug than I like, but that's what I'd expect for having to order down one size from something that's too large. The Large size fits a guy 38-40. The colors are neat, they would make a good swimsuit liner. In fact, I wouldn't mind if Jockey made a swimsuit in this design with the green or in a red, or navy blue. I think it's time for guys to lose the boardshorts look (unless that's just your style). But the colors are vibrant and the material is microfiber, so they stay dry and cool all day. I don't particularly care for the double-lined pouch since it's already a bit too snug. If these had the pouch of the Sport Pro Midway, or the Pro Sport Midway had the length of the Activemicro Midway, the resulting hybrid of the two would be nice. I do like the mesh of the Sport Pro, and the Acticemicro Midway does move with your body, just the same. The fabric doesn't have a cotton feel, nor should it, cotton is bulky and holds moisture, which is what makes you itch and stink. I think these are some of the best that Jockey has made to date, if they get the sizing under control. In the meantime, husky guys can wear the XL Activemicro Midway just fine.

Excellent and Awesome!!!
Jockey has finally stepped it up with the ActiveMicro Boxer Briefs and Midway Briefs. The material is extremely comfortable and the no-roll waistband stays in place all day. These have to be the most comfortable underwear I have ever worn and they also look great! The colors available should appeal to both young and mature. I appreciate the medium size being true-to-size and fitting the 32-34 waist perfectly. They are very competitive to other popular brands with similar colors available, except they are much more comfortable. Hopefully Jockey will be added more "bolder" colors in the future such as red, orange, lime green, etc. Way to go, Jockey!

Love 'em
Perfect fit, material breathes where previous cotton did not. Important for me is for briefs to fit up between leg and testicle and stay there. Your design for that works well, very important for sanitation reasons. P Hoyt

Bought a a 3 pack and these are by far the most perfect fitting and comfortable underwear I have eve worn!! Without advertising it, these have the most comfortable crotch you could ask for. I would go so far as to say it's actually a pouch! Lightweight and durable! I now own 12 pair and with the new colors available will be purchasing more!

Great product reasonable price
Once I use to wear tommyjohn but I found that the jockey microfiber were just as comfortable and at a fraction of the cost. I'm a working man so value and quality are important to me. Thank you jockey

Didn't you used to offer specific waist sizes rather than just S, M, L etc?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for your inquiry. For the last several years, we have been moving into "alpha-sized" products, meaning those sized S, M, L, XL, rather than numerically sized (30, 32, 34, etc.). Many consumers prefer this because it offers them more flexibility in the sizing. Thank you and have a good day.

I have been wearing Jockey Sport Mesh Midway but as my legs have gotten bigger I need some that are longer. At the same time I want the no-fly design. What are my options? Are the Microfiber Midways any longer? Thanks

Jockey Sport® Cooling Mesh Performance Boxer Brief
BEST ANSWER: We don't have a lot of men's midway briefs that don't have a fly that have an exceptionally long leg. Your best bet is the Microfiber midway 3-pack style# 9022. The other suggestion I have if you are looking for a truly long leg on the item is the Microfiber Performance Quad short style3 8043. This item does have an H fly design, however the fabrication with the fly design gives ample support.
Do these shorts have an inner pouch?
bernard m on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, but if you like them snug, like I do, they contour and support really well. Keeps things separated and supported. They are my favorites by far.
What is the difference between the microfiber midway and the microfiber performance midway brief? I always purchase the Midway performance briefs. On my last purchase, some of them had shorter leg lengths and I cant wear them die to chaffing.
keith o on May 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The performance series seems to be more generously cut and have mesh panels, the midways shown in your question are a more basic cut and don't have as many complex seams or mesh. Both series feature Jockey's flat seam sewing technique. The performance series breath just as well as the regular midways, but the performance have better give in the fly area as well in all directions of the bias. The regular midways seem restrictive to me. The colors are extremely bright in this 3 pack. It's more like the colors you'd expect from swimsuits. Although, I think a swim suit, similarly made and from this fabric would be ideal for dry time in hot/humid climates like Cozumel.
Do these come in a pack of all white? My son only wears white. Want to buy several packs but need the white!
Judith G on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Although we don't offer our Microfiber Midway in an all white pack offering right now, I am making a note of it in our database for our merchandisers. They've been looking for consumer insights to help them in their color selection, and so we really appreciate you taking the time to contact us. You never know -- your feedback may just change our underwear (at least in terms of color offerings). Thank you for your feedback!
A shopper on Apr 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have to disagree with everyone, I love the regular Midway briefs, the new microfiber rubs in the crotch area. I walk alot in my job and the new ones make me sweat more and rub the inside of my crotch. The original Midway brief is the best for me.
