Endura baggies – which ones do you recommend?
I’ve got humvees and zymes. Both have needed a bit of stitching work think that’s due to catching a bolt on my bike tho, zymes are proper tough material, should last ages, shrug off a bit of splash from rear wheel, bit warm in summer but ok rest of the time. humvees are cooler, vents, useful pockets, nice and comfy. Few years old now and getting a bit thin on the derriere. Clickfast inner short system is ok, not tried others to compare against tho, works ok with standard lycra shorts aswell. Wierd sizing tho, iirc I’m XL humvees and inner shorts but M zymes.Posted 4 years agojimiMember
I used the Humvees for the last couple of years,
Had two pairs which i wore alternating days for a year riding 3-5hrs a day and both are still going strong. The liners with them are comfy as well but the new ones dont seem as durable as the less comfy older ones.
If you can get a good deal on them i’d go for it.Posted 4 years agocbmotorsportMember
I have a set of HumVees and a set of Singeltracks. Both have been brilliant.
I picked up a new pair of HumVees in a shop the other day and didn’t think the quality was as good as the pair I bought a couple of years ago though. The pair I have has thick canvas type material in the wear areas and are unkillable, the new pair felt a bit flimsy in comparison.Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Always worn lycra on the MTB, but have recently bought some nice bibs and don’t want to ruin them in the gritty autumn and winter mud.
Mrs S has just got some Hummvee Lite baggies and loves ’em to bits.
Got a good deal from our friendly, Endura stocking LBS, so I might just try a pair.
The Endura website lists so many similar models that I’m not sure which to go for.
Which ones are best for what?
What do you use and which would you recommend?
Thanks in advance.Posted 4 years agospawnofyorkshireSubscriber
I’ve got standard Hummvees i did need to size up for the inner, but i find the outer comfy enough for wearing out and about or for hikingPosted 4 years ago
It’s got a stupid popper instead of a button so i can’t wear them without a belt or i can have a few awkward momentsnicko74Member
I had Humvees and really liked them as versatile ‘all round’ shorts. When it’s really chucking it down they do tend to soak up water and get really flappy and a bit cold. They’re cut quite loose, too.
I switched to Singletracks. Different material, tighter cut round the legs (it’s like they’re a size smaller than the Humvees), more water-resistant, but IMHO not quite as versatile.
Both great shorts IMEPosted 4 years ago
