5/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $69.99


Product Description

  • The first and only baggy MTB shorts tethered to a bib-type undershort. Made in SoCal, USA.
  • Large mesh panels deliver unmatched ventilation. The non-mesh panels are also highly air permeable for breathability, rip-stop for durability, 4-way stretch for comfort, DWR treated for splash repellency and to prevent the fabric from ‘wetting-out’ which would slow vapor transfer.
  • Ultra light at only 160g (some baggies are >350g).
  • 3M Scotchlite retro-reflective logo patches that help with road safety if you're out on the road at night.
  • Buy the same size as you wear dress pants.
  • Available in Stone and Black colors and sizes 28", 30", 32", 34", 36", 38", 40", 42".

DirtBaggies Shorts Pro Review

There is a gap between looking cool in baggies and going fast in Lycra. A lot of cyclists go both ways and make the clothing call depending on the type of ride they’re doing and the crowd that’s going to be there. Temperature plays a role too as the hottest weather usually calls for the thinnest roadie Lycra available. That’s where DirtBaggies has come to offer a solution. They offer a very lightweight short system, that includes a bib designed to be worn as a liner only and a shell that mates with the bib by hooking on each side with snap-on tethers.

Strengths:    Super light, they disappear when worn with the matching bib liner, i.e. they are comfortable. Good length, usable pockets.

Weaknesses:    Mostly stuff that looks like it is not durable, but I only rode these once, so they may hold up better than they look. The button fly, tiny snaps and zipper, and light material are all there for good reason and function. I hope they go forever. Pricey, but these are made in the USA, and you get what you pay for. You really have to use these with the bib liner.

Bottom Line:   
See my review of the bib liner separately. These are super lightweight but they work great in combination with the bib liner. I like that these are light - the lightweight snaps, zipper, fabric, etc. make these disappear on the trail. The length is perfect, the combo fly works, and they don't bind or snag. On one ride I accidentally left my wallet and keys in the pocket (something I never do) and I did not even realize it until hours into the ride. No extra pockets, adjustments, loops, hooks, rubber armor, etc. that you never use anyway.
