I developed large thighs and flutes from decades of bicycle road racing. My thighs rub when running. Chaffing is an issue even with coconut oil applied.
Tell me what your ideal ultra distance shorts are
And why do you think your selection is ideal?

My thighs tend to rub together as well. And when you run trails, they're not getting any smaller due to building more muscle :) For awhile I just used BodyGlide, but it wears off after many hours of running.
So I tried various compression/athletic "under" wear. The trick for me was getting them long enough that they don't ride up the thigh as your legs move.
Personally, I like Champion "Tech Performance Long Boxer Brief":
They're very inexpensive but do a great job, just as good as expensive brands, in my opinion.
On ultras I use BOTH BodyGlide AND those briefs and have zero chafing since. And I've run multiple 50's and a 100 with that combination.
