    Water resistant shorts

    Looking for something with a little protection from the elements, but not rain pant material. Soft shell-ish, with a DWR coating. Doesn't have to be bike specific as I usually just wear liners and regular shorts.

    Any suggestions?

    Shorts that are water repellent, or shorts that dry quickly when wet. I'd rather have shorts that dry quickly when wet and are comfortable to ride when wet. Some water repellent shorts can be a heat trap and feel like I'm riding in a plastic tarp.

    I have shorts that dry quickly, but they're not enough for extended wet periods.

    Thanks, fleboz, will check that out.

    I have some Royal Racing Turbulence shorts that have the DWR and a water proof panel in the rear that are excellent. They may be hard to find as they are our of production but I can say they are great shorts. Durable and breath well. I believe their new stage short is also DWR treated and look great.
