- Singletrack or Hummvee 3/4?
Singletracks are slightly more water resistant and much harder wearing. Humvees are, IMHO, more comfy, better to wear in warmer weather, and have a slightly better pocket configuration. Hope this helps.
While we're on 3/4's, Altura Summits are quite comfortable and suprisingly water resistant. However, they have less pockets and balloon out a little like they were made for Tudor times or something.Posted 8 years agojojoA1Member
If they are the same fabric as the ladies ones, the Humvees are lighter weight/gauge fabric and more 'nylonish' in feel. They dry quicker but are less insulating. The Singletracks are more like a canvas feel and a bit more heavy duty with less vented fabric behind the knee. They are also more fitted through the thigh than the Humvees. Your choice…Posted 8 years agoruddyMember
Had both and were great while working however, the stitching on the underside goes very quickly and Endura seem to wash their hands of them. Really disappointing as I have bought quite a lot of Endura clothing over the years.Posted 8 years ago
Preferred the singletrack short out of the two as harder wearing and muck repellant.jackthedogMember
They come up small, do Humvees.
I have a 30" waist – my Fox 3/4s are small and they hang off me, can actually fall down without a belt, while my medium Humvees are a little snug on the waist if anything.
How the scottish medium is about half the size of a yankee small, I've no idea.
PS I find the endura liners good too. Don't know why they get so hammered.Posted 8 years agonicko74Member
nickc – the Humvees get VERY heavy and saggy when wet and dirty (to the extent that I ripped mine on the cable routing on the frame. Still wear them tho). The Singletracks not so much, as they shed water more, rather than soaking it up. Also, they're cut slightly more fittedly than the Humvees.Posted 8 years agoSlogoMember
Ive got the singletrack shorts and there great. wearing really well after 2 years there is small signs of wear under the waist at the back, its stretchy fabric probably me pulling them up. and they are not very water proof after a few to many washes in the washing machine!Posted 8 years agoBagstardMember
I have both and prefer the singletrack, they just feel tougher and better quality. As previously mentioned the inner short in the humvees is a little snug compared to the outer short. Both are pretty good though. I actually like the inner shorts, but the leg grippers are a tad tight on my big legs.Posted 8 years ago
