Packs are great. But sometimes you just don't want to lug one along regardless of how streamlined it is. And, by golly, you still want to be able to take everything but the kitchen sink on a ride. Enter the Endura Women's Hummvee 3/4 pants. And considering it comes with a removable liner, this is an incredible value for a trail-worthy short.
Just like the High Mobility Multi-Purpose Vehicle for which it's named, the Hummvee short is built for rugged durability. Ripstop nylon creates a tough but flexible exterior that moves with you on the bike. Lighter weight nylon is used on the front and leg panels while a denser version is used across the seat. The fit is decidedly more relaxed than the Endura Women's Singletrack 3/4 but not what we would typically call "baggy." Mid-rise elastic waist features an integrated belt and wicking internal waistband. Articulated knee uses a mesh panel on the rear for added ventilation. Velcro tabs adjust the fit around the leg.
To say the Women's Hummvee offers a lot of storage is a bit of an understatement. Two large zipped front pockets hold essentials. One thigh has a zipped cell phone pocket and the other leg has a cargo pocket with fold over top with Velcro closure. While other pants may offer the same number of pockets, the relaxed fit of the Hummvee makes the pocket interior more accessible and therefore more usable.
Inside the short is the Endura Clickfast 6-Panel liner. It's a cycling short with Endura's 200-series stretch chamois, and gripper elastic at the bottom hem. The liner can be unclicked and washed separately while a spare liner is clicked in place.
The Endura Women's Hummvee 3/4 pants comes in Black, sizes Small through Large.
This fits me like a pair of Lee jeans. I've got large thighs and a smallish waist. And these fit perfectly with allowing movement. And there is no gap at the waist. I tried on 12 pairs of bicycle shorts with the over shorts, and these were the first pair that truly fit. Order a few sizes, I noticed the sizing was not consistent between the regular hummvee shorts and the 3/4 hummvee shorts.
I wear a size 12 and I bought these shorts in size L and I was extremely disappointed.
They are cut very very small.
You have to be shaped like a board to fit into these shorts.Better yet a model. Because these dont fit real women. If you have any time of shape to you forget it.
The liner was so tight around my thigh it was cutting my circulation off.
Quality was great but I can only recommned these shorts if you have no shape or you wear junior
sizes then these are the shorts for you.
