While the origins of the phrase going commando are up for debate, TAD firmly settled on a favorite rumor. Nicknamed after members of elite units, this term was coined during the Vietnam War when soldiers were reputed to wear no underwear to increase ventilation and reduce moisture during combat in the humid, jungle terrain. This shift was adopted to offset the poorly performing cotton drawers that were standard issue.
When designing their Commando Base Layer Pant, TAD evaluated the constraints those in the field had to endure with inferior daily essentials and opted to design a low-profile silhouette built with the natural antimicrobial properties of Merino. Constructed to accommodate an active lifestyle, these base layer pants are lightweight and cut for mobility. With flatlock seams and double panel construction, these pants feature a close, comfortable fit that moves with you and retains its shape during use. It’s safe to say that despite the fact that you’ll clearly be wearing a base layer, it will feel as though you’re comfortably going commando.
