Q: How do I find the right size for me?
A: Our size chart (shown above) should give you a pretty good idea but we understand that some people are in between our sizes. For the best fit with SHEATH, it will depend on our build and if your weight fluctuates. If you're on the athletic slim body type, with thinner thighs and smaller butt, keeping to your usual size would be better. Especially if your weight stays pretty stagnant. If you're on the thicker side, with larger thighs and butt, a larger size might would work better. SHEATH should fit like a second skin. SHEATH should fit snug but not tight and that allows the dual pouch to work its supportive magic.

A: Well, our underwear is 95% Modal and 5% Elastane. Modal is a semi synthetic material made from the beech tree. It is an antimicrobial, moisture wicking, breathable, and very flexible material.

Q: Where are SHEATH made?
A: SHEATH Underwear are currently made in Zhongshan, a highly technical area of China best known historically for their role in the first Opium War (don't worry, they lost and are clean off the dope). The area later turned into the Qing Dynasty. It is near a rural area that is known for rice and other agriculture where nearby they have this state of the art production facility for garments where SHEATH as well as Sly, and other underwear brands are made. The workers rotate in and out from the factory to the farm and they do a fantastic job. They enjoy their roots of share cropping and are very professional and meticulous in all of their work. From what we can tell their society is improving from world trade. Their people seem to be extremely well taken care of with over a month off annually from any work in February, for celebration of the Chinese new year.  

Q: When were SHEATH invented?
A: It was 2008 in the midst of the Iraq war when an Army Sergeant Robert Patton serving his second tour in the desert had a vision for a new design of underwear that would eliminate future irritation resulting from the sticking of balls to the inner thigh under extreme circumstances such as in a war zone. Turns out they also work in less extreme conditions as well. After he had the idea and had some garments made for himself, years passed that included an honorable discharge from the Army, followed by over a year working with a professional tailor from Vietnam, and then in 2013, SHEATH launched a successful Kickstarter which crowdfunded the current SHEATH 2.0 version available for sale on this site. There was a great deal of effort being taken in perfecting the design.
