Pearl Izumi Urban Shorts review£34.99

The Urbans are light and stretchy with strategic mesh panels, a few handy pockets and plain styling. Padded inner shorts are not included but, being so thin, they worked great over regular Lycra. They pack down small, making them ideal for touring or stashing in a rucksack for the end of a commute. They dry really quickly too. Leg length is good to protect from saddle rub, but if you want to keep things conservative abroad, check out the Urban Capris (£41.99).
