WHAT MAKES GHUnders™ DIFFERENT FROM OTHER UNDERGARMENTS?
GHUnders™ is the first undergarments made specifically for the people who live and work in the inclimate weather of Grays Harbor. This same weather is fairly consistent in the whole of the Pacific Northwest. Wet, windy, couldy, and grey. These undergarments are made with a fabric that transports moisture from the inner layer to the outer layer. This means that you have dry skin EVEN UNDER LAYERS OF CLOTHES. They are specifically designed to protect your skin, serving as a chaffing buffer from mid and outer layers. They also help to regulate your body temperature and prevent tenderness and raw skin.

Unlike most underwear, GHUnders™ Shorts have no seams in the seating area and the seams that are in the shorts are flat seams. The shorts should fit with a gentle hug to avoid folds of fabric for when you are sitting. The men’s version also comes equipped with a convenient Roo-Fly™. The women's version has a gusset.


A major difference is our fabric. Most single layer garments (polypropylene, single layer nylon) are made as outer wear and will not keep the moisture off your skin under the layers of clothing often required for harsher outdoor jobs or activities. We use a unique, dual layer material (two materials woven together to create a two sided fabric) in the making of our Shorts, Tops and Tights. The special moisture transfer properties of this material help keep skin dryer and the outer layer creates the cooling effect of evaporation. The material offers a four way stretch that stays with you when you move and prevents chaffing.

Do I use GHUnders™ to replace my underwear?
YES. GHUnders™ garments are underwear! If you put on something underneath your GHUnders™ garments you would defeat the intended purpose.

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I GET?

Shorts and Tights: All of our garments are made to the tape measure (inches). With a tape measure, measure your waist above your belt line. Women should measure at their natural waistline. Find that measurement on the chart and it will tell you what size to order. If you are between sizes we suggest that you stick with the smaller size. So if you have a 33 1/2” waist, you would order the size medium. Even if you are a returning customer it is best to check your size.

Tops: Our tops are made to fit comfortably. You may choose your size by your normal t-shirt size or you can measure your chest with a tape measure (women measure above your bust) and find your size on the chart below. When measuring for the shirts, take a deep breath and puff out your chest to get your correct size.
All of our tops are considered unisex sizes with the exception of the Combo Tops.

Are GHUnders™ products good in cold weather?
With the special fabric that keeps you dry, you will stay warmer in the cold. We do not suggest that you rely on our shorts in extreme cold for the kind of warmth you require, but they make for a dry, non bulky and non abrasive base layer. For colder weather and full leg coverage try our full length tights made with the same fabric as our shorts.

What is a Roo-Fly™? or What is this pocket in front?
Due to the 4-way stretch of the fabric, we had to design something that would be convenient for pit stops without being embarrassing. A traditional vertical fly would prove to be more trouble than no fly at all so we invented the Roo-Fly™. The Roo-Fly™ is an easy to use fly that looks like a long horizontal buttonhole with a patch pocket sewn over the top for support.

Do they dry overnight?
GHUnders™ garments will dry overnight. Like many things they also need air to help them dry. There are a few ways that might help in this situation. Hang your garments over the air conditioner/fan/heater in the hotel room. Usually there is a curtain above the shower unit you can clip them to using some of the pant hangers provided.
The best way to quickly dry any GHUnders™ garment is to do the following:
After washing your garments and wringing them out, lay them flat on a towel. Roll them up in the towel and wring the towel. A lot of moisture will be wicked into the towel because it is far more absorbent. If you roll the garments up again with the dry side of the towel your shorts can actually be put back on. The garment will feel cool but your body heat will quickly help dispel any extra moisture. For the shorts and tights, the waistband will dry with your body heat in about a half hour.

Are they similar to compression shorts?
GHUnders™ shorts are NOT compression shorts. When you wear tight clothes all day it can be very bad for you. Compression shorts are usually worn short term for exercise and can restrict proper blood flow when you are inactive. You do not want anything being restricted as it can cause long term medical problems. That is why our shorts should be a gentle hug and not a tight fit. For proper fit please make sure you measure for correct sizing when ordering.

Are GHUnders™ Garments Fireproof?
No. GHUnders™ garments contain nylon and polyester. Nylon and polyester are man-made thermoplastic materials. They will melt to a liquid when high heat is applied. If you plan to engage in a sport where there is a risk of fire, proper protective gear should be your first consideration.

What's the best way to use the Long Sleeve Top for a wide range of temperatures?
This question about how to use our top comes up often.

Controlling your exposure to the elements is most important when concentration is mandatory. The GHUnders™ long sleeve top can provide you with everything you need for helping you work or play in 100 degrees to 40 degrees. Simply put on the GHUnders™ top underneath your other layers. Temps down to 40 degrees are not a problem depending on the wind proofing of your outer garment. You can work and play in freezing weather with little to no trouble when properly outfitted.

Temps reaching 100 degrees are also not a problem when handled correctly. The high heat is where many people make mistakes and place themselves in danger. The GHUnders™ long sleeve top can be used as a cooling garment to help you work and play in temps up to 120 degrees - 49 Celsius (Tested). Pour water down the sleeves and into the neck of the GHUnders™ top. By wettting the garment you are using an outside water source to keep you cool. This helps keep you more hydrated as you are not using your sweat to keep you cool.
