Touring baggies for on and off the bike

BikeRadar score4/5

Available in different lengths and cuts and also in a water-resistant finish, Swrve’s USA-made shorts are comfortable enough for long days out when paired with a padded liner, and sufficiently stylish for casual use off the bike. 

The combination of 98 percent cotton and two percent Lycra is hardwearing with just enough stretch for cycling. 

There are plenty of pockets, including a rear zipped one, and there’s a reflective belt loop and a full-length zip. 

The swrve men's shorts are ideal for touring as they work well off the bike as well as on: the swrve men's shorts are ideal for touring as they work well off the bike as well as on
