    3/4 length waterproof shorts/pants/knickers?

    Does anyone know of any 3/4 length, over the knee, waterproof shorts/pants?

    I'm tired of getting a wet butt when out in torrential rain, and I'd like to have my knees covered for a little extra warmth as well. But I don't want full length pants if I can help it.

    I can't seem to find much. These Endura MT500 3/4's are the only product I've found:

    Endura MT500 Spray Baggy 3-4 Shorts SS15 | Chain Reaction Cycles

    The Endura's seem sketchy, as the reviews indicate that the front panels soak up water. What's the point of keeping your butt dry if your legs are soaked?

    Any ideas or opinions?

    just curious, how will a longer pant leg help you from getting a wet butt while riding in rain? they wouldn't offer any additional protection over a pair of shorts or pants with a DWR finish.

    Those Endura baggy's are nice though, Endura makes nice clothing. I also really like Royal Racing and they have nice shorts with the DWR (Durable Water Repellant) finish that I am talking about. Royal also has a nice pair or long pants that look like denim but have the same feel and DWR finish as your traditional riding shorts.

    When it rains here, it's always cold rain. I like having my knees covered. And if I have a 3/4 length base layer underneath, I need 3/4 length rain protection.

    I found 1 other 3/4 length waterproof, the Altura Attack:

    Altura Attack 3/4 Length Waterproof Short | Evans Cycles

    Found these too, but don't appear to be waterproof:
    wiggle.com | dhb Hardline Baggy 3/4 Short | Baggy Cycling Shorts

    Those Royal Racing storm shorts look terrific. I assume they dont quite cover the knees?

    Thanks.
