Waking up to see grey skies and wet pavement sends most of your riding crew back to bed, but you'd rather be riding than sitting inside any day. If you can't resist the pleasure of riding through monsoon like conditions, then Maloja's JamesM. Men's Shorts are something you'll want to have on your side when you head out into the storm. While you may not catch a cold purely from the rain, as your mother once warned you, your ride will be a lot less enjoyable if you spend it soaked and shivering. That's why Maloja crafted the JamesM. Shorts using windproof, waterproof Gore Tex Paclite fabric. The 2. 5 layer membrane offers complete protection from the elements while remaining breathable enough to be worn through a wide temperature range. Maloja also cut the shorts to be easily combined with leg warmers and employed a regular fit that allows for layering if needed. Taped seams, reflective accents, and a water repellent zipper all show Maloja's attention to detail in creating an outer short that can stand up to any amount of inclement weather you choose to ride through.
