ENDURA MEN'S SHORTS - MOUNTAIN
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 butt 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.
