Water repellent outer

With these Thermolite bib shorts, Endura has pulled off a great feat of high quality at great value. The Endura Thermolite bib shorts are £69.99, but despite the low price it is hard to fault their quality or performance.
The Thermolite material features a warm, brushed fleece inside, making these shorts usable even when the temperature is around freezing, provided they’re teamed up with leg-warmers. The fabric has a Teflon coating too, so there’s a decent amount of protection against showers; it takes a lot of persistent rain for these shorts to get fully waterlogged.
Extra warmth is provided by the high front, which rises up to your midriff, while the excellent 600-series chamois proved comfortable on long winter rides, as did the wide shoulder straps. The mesh straps however, would be better in brushed fleece.
The Thermolite’s do come up a little larger than most shorts, not to the point of hindering comfort. The leg is a little longer than in others, though this does add an extra inch of warmth.
