LD Comfort and..........WTF??

How do I put this discreetly?? Well I can't so does anyone besides me experience a bad case of crotch rot, stinky crotch, bad sweaty balls and rash after a few days in these things?? I love them but.......... It takes a few days, copius baby powder and a good dose of Tinactin to make things right after a tour of more than three days. I am not affected by any other undergarments.

Insert jokes here, but hopefully some insight as well.

Do you wash them everyday? Mine will stink after riding in them all day, but I hand wash them in a motel at the end of the day whenever I can and they haven't bothered me yet.

Nope,do not have that issue with my LD gear,this includes many 90-100 plus degree days.

You are not supposed to use any powder while using the LDComfort gear,it ruins the breathability/function per the website and per Mario's postings on this site.
I think you say you are only putting on the powders afterwards,correct?

How breathable is your outer layer?,maybe a change to get more airflow to the area will help.

Like Hikertrash,I at least rinse out,if not sink launder mine when I motel it.

Could the "bad case of crotch rot, stinky crotch, bad sweaty balls and rash" be at least in part a preexisting condition? Afterall, a healthy crotch is a happy crotch, and an unhealthy crotch is not something you want to sit on for several days.

Just sayin'

Other than sweating my balls off in them, I'm not affected by what you describe at all. Glad I'm not the only one that drank the KoolAid and didn't have a great experience with them. I love them in the cold, but in warm weather, I sweat just as much as with anything else.

He's certainly not the only one. I can't stand them. In warm weather they are completely unbearable. The silicone in the legs irritates my skin, the material feels really cheap and unnatural, they are incredibly uncomfortable for me.

I use Icebreaker underwear pretty much exclusively for riding.

Edit: "feels cheap" is the wrong wording. It's good for non-natural material, but I dislike it anyways. It just feels like I pull on a piece of plastic.

I would usually put on some talcum powder, then wear inner coolmax tights and then only the hot waterproof pants. Hot tropical country. But have never stretched beyond a full day's ride though.

They wick very nicely if your gear provides a bit of air flow. Last summer (108F in Missouri) and 8800 miles VT to OR and back this summer (103F in Idaho) wearing moistened LDC tights and a mock turtleneck under my gear let me travel in total comfort. The only time I have comfort issues is in extremely high humuggity.

$45 underwear I've had success with cheap very lightweight runner shorts, mesh or light nylon built in underwear, very breathable

Best thing LD Comfort does is seam placement imho. I haven't found anything with seams in all the wrong places. Have you?

Do the LD shorts dry overnight in the hotel room? They look pretty thick.
