Bombproof shorts

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Thick, super tough, nylon shell with a water resist PU coating. Double button fly. Roomy cut. Good amount of usable pockets. Waist cinches.

The Bad:

XS/Sm fits a bit large. No zip vents. Gets a bit warm if you're pedaling at all. Relatively short inseam. Short fly.

Overall Review:

These have no chamois/removable liner. They fit a bit loose, but I suspect they were meant to be worn with padded shorts like the Fox Launch or 661 Bomber undershort. The waist cinches sufficient to keep 'em from falling down. I usually dislike brown, but liked the brown color from last year; this black is rather bland looking. These are meant for bombing DH, saving your skin on falls; these will be too warm if you're riding AM and riding up. The inseam isn't long enough to cover all the skin between the short and knee/shin guards and the fly is a bit shorter than I'm used to.
