Not as good as the Tribord style they replaced

I went to Decathlon to replace the half dozen pairs of Tribord undershorts I bought from them several years ago. I could not find Tribord so, when I enquired, I was told Tribord had been replaced by Olaian brand. I've now worn them a few times. They are comfortable but the material isn't quite as soft as in Tribord. The Olaian shorts tend to slip down when I run due to friction with anything else I wear on my bottom half. I'd prefer Tribord but as I can no longer get them Olaian will have to suffice.

More colours please

I've worn these Kola pants for years. Working in hot countries they really can eliminate chafe. However they used to be available in green, blue and purple. It seems now that the elastic in the waistband parts at the seam. Not as good as they were.

Come up small

Had to exchange

Better than I thought.

Felt & fitted like a 2nd skin . We're great under shorts I had cut the net out of , for being uncomfortable . They had a lot of use over two weeks and I can't fault them.

Good product

I wear these boxers under my wetsuit similar to wearing a rash vest. The only negative is that in my opinion the size of the boxers is not aligned with normal clothing garments. I.e I had to buy 2 sizes bigger than normal boxers

What is the olaian brand?

OLAIAN, DECATHLON'S SURFING BRAND Based in Hendaye, in South West France, OLAIAN is Decathlon's surfing and bodyboarding brand. In our offices at the water's edge, we can design a pair of boardshorts and then on the same day go surfing and test them to check that they stay in place in the waves, are comfortable and durable.

Sandproof component

The component of these boxers allows the evacuation of grains of sand, thanks to its special mesh. This contributes to the non-irritant effect of these under-shorts.

Color choice

Available in 1 color: Black

This product must be worn under a pair of shorts or boardshorts. It must not be used on its own in the water as there is a chance it may come off in the waves. Sandproof with a slim fit
