    Long Capris for fall/winter riding?

    So, I'm wracking my brain a bit. I have Endura Singletrack pants that I wear for winter riding, and really like them. However, I'd like something a big shorter, more like pedal-pushers in length; above the ankle, but below mid-calf for fall/winter riding. I've seen the lyrca versions in this length, but I want something less form-fitting and baggier. I also own the Endura Humvee 3/4 length pants and I really like those, but they come just below the knee/above the calf. Way back in the day, Race Face actually made pants the length I'm talking about, but not any more. I have tights and I have long shorts...but I want a bit more coverage. Any suggestions/ideas?

    In my search for shorts, I'm 99% positive that I saw what you're looking for. I have a Race Face jacket that has lasted for years so, the RaceFace capris caught my eye and I thought they would be nice for Fall riding. I think it was Cambria bike or Competitive Cyclist or REI outlet that had them. Sorry, I wish I knew for sure.

    Check out Club Ride Joanie Capris. The inseam is 16.5" not sure if thats long enough?


    I have had good fit with the clothing in the past. I haven't tried the capris but I have purchased the long shorts and pants

    My Endura Humvee's hit me about mid calf. I love them

    Hi All - thanks for the suggestions! I've had a chance to look at all you've suggested. I already own some Endura 3/4 length pants for women, but they come just below the knee and aren't that much longer than well, long shorts. Maybe there are some other European mtb clothing manufacturers I'm overlooking? Kind of curious why there aren't more options for mtb in that length (can find yoga/workout pants). I wanted something heavier and more durable than tights. Here's an example of length:
    I'd try men's...but am kind of afraid it'd be long in the crotch and catch on the saddle.

    I got a pair of Terry winter tights from REI. They are thicker and fit really well and look good. Have used them between 40-60 degrees and they work great.

    Not bike-specific but 24" inseam, abrasion resistant nylon/spandex and good reviews except for short folks. https://www.titlenine.com/product/cl...fType=&from=fn
