The Altura Altitude shorts have been among our favourite budget baggies for years and now they’ve been upgraded with new fabric.

The new Cordura skin is tougher, less shiny and softer than the old upholstery, giving a real quality feel. The full zip fly is easy to use when you’re in a hurry and broad side straps make fit adjustment a doddle.

There’s a bit of bunching at the back and some flap in the legs at speed but never enough to irritate or catch your saddle, and the material dries fast too.

The liner feels loose when your standing, but it’s great on the bike and it’s anchored at the top and bottom. The contoured pad is comfortable too and it helps make this a great pair of shorts for the price.
