- Recommend me some waterproof shorts for 50 quid-ish
Yes my Attack shorts fitted pads under fine and if you shop around you will find them at a bargain price- I also recommend getting the braces with them so no faffage with them sliding down over lycra bib shorts!Posted 6 years ago
I managed to get some Attack 3/4’s for ridiculous cheap price and they too will take knee pads with ease.chakapingSubscriber
Are the attacks good? Xx L too big for me will they go over pads ok?
They go over Fox Launch kneepads for me, which are on the bulky side.
After killing a series of waterproof shorts – which all failed at the seams – I’m trying not to use them on saddles with raised stitching any more.
Attacks are about the best compromise on price/quality IMO, got my current pair for £35 I think.Posted 6 years agoTurnerGuyMember

I have some Altura semi-dry 3/4s, which are good and which I can get my pads under, but I have had some knee pain both times I wore them with pads so think they may be holding to pads down on my knees and causing problems.
The pads are only lightweight TL KG5400s.Posted 6 years agorudedogMember

The sizing is unpredictable and they are poorly made.
I’ve sent 2 pairs back under warranty – never again.
I’m just about to send a 4 month old pair back because the attachment point of the braces has started to rip – its reinforced horizontally, not vertically as you’d expect and therefore seems to be a bit of a design flaw.Posted 6 years agoMacavityMember

I’m a big fan of the Attacks, got 3 pairs (plus some 3/4s for commuting). One’s worn out- they’re ancient. Another I just put a hole in while crashing, that’s OK. But they’re waterproof (apart from the holes in the end, dur), they’re tough, and they’re… well, just like shorts really. Also, this is really important, they don’t need careful care- just standard machine washing. Shorts that you can’t chuck in the wash are good for nothing.
I’ll be buying another pair to replace the worn out set.Posted 6 years ago
