Endura MT500 Spray. The 3/4s are particularly good

Been using Endura Superlite 3/4 lengths for about a year now.

One of the best purchases I've made. No more soggy crotch!

I can recommend Altura Attack shorts.

Had a 3/4 length pair for a couple of years now and they're still going strong.

Hi All

Here is my cheap skate way of stopping getting a wet bum, pair of Gore Tex army leggings chop them off into shorts, hem them and away you go, had them around 12months and spot on.

The Mavic ones (Stratos H20) are properly waterproof and not just water-resistant, like the Enduras. They also are breathable which I don't think any of the others are?

Expensive maybe but everyone I know who has a pair (or two!) says that they are simply the best and really change wet rides for the better.
