I'm still sold on the traditional knicker leg closure
design versus the 'capri' leg opening...as a recumbent rider, parachute operation of pantaloons is an issue. Not to mention 'drafting'.

As for the weather where you're at, try cross country ski socks and possibly women's knee socks at the discount clothing stores if that's your price point.


I've had a pair of these for over a year and from my point of view they have definately been worth the cost. Considerably more comfortable than most other shorts and they show no signs of wear.

I've worn them on my ten mile roundtrip daily commute through a Wisconsin winter over long underwear (and with heavy socks) and they've been ideal - the material really blocks the wind.

Just a heads-up on care: they've been tossed in the laundry with regular detergent a couple times and lost their water repellance but I re-washed them with Nikwax products and restored it. Most recently I sprayed them thoroughly with Kiwi Camp Dry.

I give the Chrome knickers my favorite superlative: they're SWELL!
