Back by popular demand: Endura Hummvee 3/4 Baggy Shorts

A few years ago, we stocked the then-new Hummvee 3/4 baggy cycling shorts made by Endura, an innovative company based in Scotland. They were designed to meet the rigors of mountain biking, but their practical and comfortable style proved to be very popular with commuters, messengers, Towpath riders, long-distance touring cyclists, and even law enforcement.

We decided to bring the Humvee shorts back, and now in the new, improved Endura Hummvee 3/4 Lite version!

The 3/4-length shorts go just below the knees, for a modest look that helps keep the sunlight and thorns off of your skin. The new lightweight nylon outer material is considerably cooler than the original Hummvee, and mesh rear panels were added for more cooling. The material is doubled in the seat area for extra durability where you need it most. The shorts are coated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to keep the splash from puddles and unexpected rain showers at bay.

More features from the original Hummvee shorts included are front hip pockets, side cargo zipped pockets, integrated stretch belt, seam-free inseam panel, and a removable padded liner short.

We decided to go with a new Stone (light gray) color, rather than black, for even more cooling comfort.

Now in stock in all three Century Cycles stores, Endura Hummvee Lite 3/4 Shorts in Men's Medium, Large, X-Large, and XX-Large, and Women's-Specific Endura Hummvee Lite 3/4 Shorts in Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large.
