Cool weather variants of the acclaimed, patent pending MTB bib-liner. Unmatched saddle comfort and function for long chilly bike rides.

FEATURE THERMAL SHORT and FEATURE THERMAL KNICKER by

DirtBaggies are the worlds first, patent pending, mountain bike specific bib-short liners. They bring pro-roadie comfort to mountain bikers who spend long days in the hills.

They've been described by the MTB press, as "genius", "a great advancement", "radically rethinking baggy shorts" and "the freshest approach to mountain biking shorts since, well, mountain biking shorts were invented".

Reviewers have agreed that they're the most comfortable MTB specific shorts ever made:

The original FEATURE bib liner has been very well received, but they're only really viable in warm weather.

To bring comfort in cooler climates we're introducing another pair of firsts, the first thermal MTB specific under-bib short and the first thermal MTB specific under-bib knicker.

• Made in the USA with soft, stretchy, single sided, wicking fleece over the legs and butt.

• The fronts and outsides of the knees are reinforced with spandura.

• Like the existing FEATURE bib-liner, the torso is made using a breathable 4-way stretch mesh that's textures on the outside to prevent your shirt from riding up under your hydration pack (something that happens when you wear slick roady bib fabrics).

• Like the existing FEATURE bib-liner, the FEATUREKNICK_TH has 5-step tether ladders on each side, pockets hidden in the bib straps and a WeinerGate fly front.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Assuming everybody makes it through the holiday season alive and that the factory doesn't burn down or the dog eats our homework, there shouldn't be any risks here. The prototype phase is complete and we have enough chamois pads here in the US to fulfill the initial Kickstarter goals.

The fabrics for DirtBaggies are sourced here in the US, however the Cytech chamois pads are made in Italy; I've not been able to find a domestic source of equal quality. I currently have a handful of chamois pads here in the US, so I can accept only 100 orders on this Kickstarter for delivery in January. I guess you could say these are Limited Edition.

If the initial 100 pieces sell out, I can add duplicate rewards for more thermal bib-liners, however because of the lead time to produce additional chamois pads and ship them from Italy, those will not be ready until April or May.

FAQ

  • You don't need to state what size garment you need when you make your pledge.

    When the project is funded I'll email you a size chart and we'll make your bibs based on your reply. Whatever your size, we can make a bib to fit you (our existing FEATURE bibs are available in sizes to fit waists from 28" thru 44"+)

    We'll be making a few extra bibs, so if you need to make an exchange I'll be able to take care of you.
