J&G Touring Shorts


These loose-fitting shorts with a moisture-wicking polypropylene chamois insert are a big hit with Adventure Cycling staff. Great off and on the bike, the flat stitching in these bike shorts makes the pad almost unnoticeable when you’re off the bike. Created from durable, fast-drying taslan nylon with two large zippered cargo pockets and a waist drawstring. Touring Shorts are perfect for the cyclist that doesn’t like the look or feel of the traditional form-fitting stretchy Lycra bike shorts, and wants a bike shorts one can feel comfortable wearing in public.

Best shorts for hot weather

If you prefer loose fit to lycra, these shorts are a throwback to before gel shorts with a sewn in liner took over the market. The thin fleece chamois works on the bike but is not like a wet pamper when walking. If the fleece is too thin, get a gel saddle and leave the weight on the bike. The shorts are even comfortable when wet. They are not super baggy unless you order oversized. Super light and well ventilated if worn with no skivvies. Best shorts ever if you don't mind the 1979 Bikecology catalog styling.

Too large

I wear a large in women's cycling shorts, or ordered a large in these. They are too baggy. Should have ordered a medium, but didn't want to pay for return postage and reorder postage.

Super comfortable and durable

and better yet, they're made in Oregon! I bought two pair in 2012, they survived a cross-country trip and many shorter trips since then.
