The Rain Shorts are part of the All-Mountain/Action Team line-up and are a useful addition to anyone’s riding wardrobe. Small and light enough to pack tightly down into their own stuff-sack, they are a rainproof outer shell for the lower half of your body. They’ve got an adjustable waistband that is elasticated at the back, but have a zip and popper fly front so they keep the sleek look of a baggy riding short rather than a shapeless pair of waterproof bloomers. There are Velcro tabs on the legs should you want to narrow them further, or are riding through particularly deep rivers!

Taped seams, and a reinforced seating area complete the package and create a well-made over-short for those unexpected drenching rides where you want to keep going, but without feeling like you’re wearing a we nappy!
