There are also side adjustment tabs to dial-in the fit at the waist, as well as adjustable hook-and-loop closures at the hem. - Deflect 2.5-layer is a woven fabric that's wind-resistant, water-resistant, and highly breathable in order to maintain an effective barrier between you and elements. - Two hand pockets with watertight, coated zippers ensure safe storage of your ride essentials and electronics. - Fully taped seams prevent water from seeping into the shorts, while also creating a comfortable feel against the skin. - Adjustable Velcro closure hem with adjustable internal rain gaiter creates an effective seal that prevents water from infiltrating the shorts. - Side waist adjustment tabs allow you to dial-in the fit of the shorts with ease. - DeflectUV 50+ protects the skin against harmful UV rays. - Relaxed MTB Fit is loose and comfortable, allowing a full range of movement and plenty of room for layering underneath.
