Polaris AM500 Repel 3/4 Length Shorts
#1
According to Bikeradar the Polaris AM500 Repel "...shorts are designed to make wet days on the trails more comfortable."

On the two occassions I've commuted to work in these shorts and it has rained they've been utterly useless at keeping me dry. That's with mudguards fitted to the MTB too, and a twenty minute ride along roads.

I can only imagine what mind-bending drugs the designers were on when they decided to put really thin non-waterproof material on the backside and inner leg section. Or perhaps they've never ridden a bike or done anything outside and failed to realize that rain, water, and mud, frequently have other forces beside gravity influencing them.

On the plus side I do like the look of them, and from the noise they make I can pretend I'm a steam train.

Another plus is they don't have half a ton of fabric inside to overheat my privates.

They're best for when it threatens to rain but it doesn't quite manage to.
