I have been wearing the Jockey pouch products for over twenty years. This is the first time I tried the mid way brief and I really like the fit. They are comfortable and I like the pouch style best of all.

Still satisfied after all these years
I just got my recent order and still feel great when I put them on! I have been wearing the midway brief for years...decades even and long before this style was popular.. and Jockey Midways are still the best long boxer brief style out there. While I have the shorter Jockey boxer briefs the midways feel natural and supportive and give me everything I want. They feel great at the office or lounging around in them and a sweatshirt at home. The length is not too long and the material continues to be of high quality...and I am on the lookout for bad seams from reading other reviews. The horizontal fly is perfect for the male anatomy and I find no "fishing around" when wearing either jeans or dress slacks. I highly recommend the Jockey Midway Pouch Brief, and I have yet to be disappointed in Jockey quality.

I actually am looking for something like this product that has compression in the leg portions. Does Jockey have such a product?
Patrick K on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The ones you are looking at (cotton) do NOT have compression in them. The other pouch Midway brief I like much much better (Microfiber) but while they offer some compression they are not true compression shorts. I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle and the surgeon wants me to wear compression shorts. I am having trouble finding them.
Why can you make a underwear that the elastic stay up for a person with big belly ? My husband, like your classic brand, but it roll down when he sits down. Maybe with better elastic .we like jockey we been buying them for a long time .
A shopper on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think the elastic band is the problem as you want both support and comfort. I think short of putting a belt on your underwear the band that is on these underwear are about as supportive and comfortable as you're going to find.

I only wear Jockey Midway briefs! I wish you made them in a low rise. I tried one of the low rise and thought it said midway but the legs were shorter. I have large calfs and the shorter ones ride up on me, it's very uncomfortable to say the least. I guess I am short waisted. Do you think they will ever make low-rise with the longer leg legth? Regardless Jockey is my brand!
John B on Sep 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thankyou for you inquiry. I will pass on your suggestion onto our merchandising and sales staff. If demand is high enough for a low rise with longer leg lengths they will definitely look into selling them. Thank you and have a good day.
