Baggy shorts are great. They let you wear a chamois without feeling goofy. They also protect you (a little) in the event of a crash. We wear them for short rides, long rides and everything in between.
In the world of baggy shorts, there are many players. And let me tell you what, we have worn a large number of them. The winner, by a landslide is Fox.
We love them for making sure we don’t rip our tighter shorts. We love them because they are extra hip protection. And during the summer, they are super ventilated to allow you to ride in the hottest parts of the day (with lots of water and food).
They come in plain old tough to super techy (crazy ventilated) all day shorts. As soon as you try these, you will be hooked.
