The Endura Hummvee 3/4 Length Shorts take all the features of their Hummvee Shorts and add on an articulated knee for those who want extra protection. They use the same materials in the same places, with the same pockets and vents.
To recap the features, it goes like this: there are three different grades of nylon in the outer shorts. All are Teflon treated for serious water repellence. The front, sides, and rear pockets are made from ripstop nylon. The rear panels are from a tougher, heavier Cordura-style nylon. The inside legs are made from a rugged, smooth stretch nylon. These various panels are joined via triple-stitching to withstand prodigious abuse. And helping hold everything in place is a heavy, spandex yoke across the back at the waist.
There are two front hip pockets that are sealed with zippers so you won't have to worry about important stuff as you bounce down the trail. There are two lower-leg pockets as well. The left one is protected with a flap, the right one a zipper. In the back, there are two deep back pockets that Endura sees as map pockets. They're side-accessible, held together with Velcro tabs, and have stitched-on pulls to make opening them easier. The bottom cuffs of the legs can be narrowed via Velcro straps, and each leg has a ventilation port covered by a zipper -- unzip on hot days, keep zipped on cool days -- adjust as necessary.
Being a Hummvee, these 3/4 shorts have some fail-safe devices built in as well. The two-inch wide waistband is elastic and is secured in front with a zipper fly and a snap. They also have several belt loops and an included nylon belt that fastens with an adjustable quick-release buckle. Endura has done smart things in the legs to make these super comfortable. The front has darts to make the knee articulated when it's hanging straight -- great for pedaling. Also, behind the knees, there are mesh panels for great ventilation.
The Hummvee shorts also include Endura's 6-Panel Clickfast liner. It's a pair of cycling shorts with a stretch chamois, and gripper elastic at the bottom hem. The liner can be unclicked and washed separately while a spare liner is clicked in place.
The Endura Hummvee 3/4 Length Shorts come in Black, Camoflauge, and Olive and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large.

1st of all they do run 1 size too small, so be sure to buy a size bigger; I had to return the 1st pair due to size.... Once I got the right size, I realized how great 3/4 pants are for trail riding... I definitely like that I can take off the lining and use them while hitting the tavern for a victory beer... :)
On a less promising not the front clip button doesn't seem to stay locked in and does unbutton from time to time... This has not hinder the shorts although I wish it would stay buttoned.
don't try & use the liner snap-in system as it will un-snap during ride depending on how much you move around on your bike. there's really no need for the liner to coordinate w/ the shell anyway, as both stay put.
the plastic belt is a bit cheap, but isn't a game changer either.
the knee articulations are well designed as is the overall shape & all fabrics, per panel.
Bought these shorts for cooler riding weather to protect my knees. Worked great. Ride started out in the low fifties and had no problems with the chill..Rode for over three hours with no discomfort at all. Plenty of pockets for carring what you need. Loved the opening for air which helped with cooling as the temp climbed. These shorts have now become my favorite to ride in and would recommend to anyone!
Great price, great product. The fit does run a little snug but not overly so. I generally wear a medium bike short or a 33 inch waist pant so I purchased the medium Hummvees and they fit like a glove. I don't like my clothes too loose and these fit the bill perfectly. I really like the abundance of pockets. The detachable liner is top of the line.
I wore through a pair of Zoic knickers (can't find them anymore) and Cutter knickerbockers (very pricey if not on sale) and these so far are my favorite of the three.
I've just discovered Endura products and they're awesome. The 3/4 shorts are comfortable, made well and very warm. Last Sun. I rode in 35 degree temps and they kept me perfectly comfortable, even with my bare legs sticking out. I love pockets and these pants have lots. The only problem is the liner is a little on the tight side, maybe I need to lose some weight, but the shorts themselves fit fine. Overall, great product!
Good quality materials, and appears to be put together to last. Quite a bit of thought went into the design as well, all pockets, zippers, and adjusters are where you'd expect them, and function easily with gloves on. The pants are shaped with biking in mind, and are very comfortable in the saddle. Not too sure how functional that "cell phone" pocket would be, but it's useful for smaller items (chapstick, trail map, bandaids) I haven't used the inner liner yet, I'm wearing them over long tights this winter, but they also appear to be well made with a nice thick chamios that's correctly shaped. One thing to note, these seem to run a bit small. I have a 34" waist (really) and I bearly fit in a large.
I really like these 3/4 shorts - quality stitching, looks like it will last awhile.
one thing - i'm 6'1 and 210, got an XL and they fit well but are a little tight. so if you're looking for more traditional 'loose fitting' knickers, these may not be what you're looking for ... prolly why they don't call them knickers, they are accurately described as '3/4 cycling shorts' and spot on!
I love these knicks. I commute in them almost every day and rock them on cooler singletrack rides. I can't say enough about how great they are. The legs are on the narrow side--these aren't very baggy--but I like that about them. I think they're true to size.
Great buy at 70 bucks, too. Endura makes great stuff.
Everything about these shorts is great except the liner. I like the vent zippers. (always open). Cell phone pocket which I use all the time. Never knew where to put my phone till now. The liner is useless! I bought the Medium as I am a 34 waist and I could hardly get my leg into the liner insert. After I squezzed into the liner I felt like I was going to throw up they were sooooo tight. I don't use them and were my biking shorts under them, I was really disapointed about that as they snaped in nicely and the ones I have to use don't. I don't know who to call to complain about that. Its like they are a size small liner in a med pants.
I like these shorts and the detachable taint pad. The style is definitely gonna take awhile to get used to. One day my wife said "Hey hunny, we have the same pants on!". After the aciditic taste left my mouth, I rode my bike for a few hours in them. At the first opportunity I changed into some other shorts and enjoyed the rest of my day. Endura is a top of the line brand and these manprees are awesome for riding and venting those areas that need venting, other than that they stay in my drawer, ready for the next ride.
As we age or gain weight, just who should be wearing lycra garb? I'm very happy to see baggy cycling apparel and Endura's build quality is amazing. I wear Assos cycling lycra and I would compare Endura to Assos. They look nice, the liner is a quality product in itself, there are a ton of pockets well situated for stuffing gear and not hindering one's riding. I wear a 35" waist and the XL has more than ample room.
However, the riding experience lags far behind the appearance of these knickers. I prefer a thin pad for anything less than 100 miles and the liner pad of these knickers is too dang thick and stiff. The back of these knickers is cut too short for a comfortable riding position on my road, mountain and cyclo-cross bikes.
My experience with these knickers and spring time riding has been decent, they've kept me fairly warm and dry. Unfortunately, the inadequate cut of the garment will not allow me to recommend them or purchase another pair.
After 400 miles of spring and early summer riding with this garment, I have to they are awful. The fabric has pilled even though I've followed carefully the care instructions.
If you leave the liner snapped into the waist band of the shorts, soon that liner is hanging around your mid-thighs when standing or bunching up in your crotch while riding. The back of these shorts is cut too damn short!
I wish I could like this garment, but it plain sucks.
