Lycra and shorts had a baby
We've all felt out of place wearing Lycra in the woods, but we still do it because the fit and feel is unparalleled. However, our skin isn't bulletproof, and eating lunch on the restaurant patio in skin-tight shorts is far from ideal. Instead of packing a sarong for your ride, the Maloja RamonaM. Short offers the best of both worlds. Combining a slim-fit short with a removable Lycra inner-short, the RamonaM. gives chamois-supported comfort that still maintains the status quo at the mountain—and most restaurant health codes.
Maloja's RamonaM. Bambi Short uses two shorts in one, with the outer-short being made from Polystretch fabric. Designed for the mountain, this material is lightweight, highly-breathable, and quick drying. As its name suggests, the fabric has natural give that's been enhanced by additional stretch inserts in the seat and waist of the short. Combined, the short has a total freedom of movement for climbing without a bulky, unflattering cut. The RamonaM. Bambi short also features an adjustable waistband and a tiny stash pocket for your keys or lunch money.
The removable inner-short has been made from Lycra, because of its light compression, contour following fit, and fast-drying nature. Housed within the short, Maloja incorporated its HD ERG chamois. This chamois is made with a seamless, bi-stretch construction that minimizes friction and stretches in several directions to follow your body's movements, not stand rigidly against them. The padding uses a variable density design that's thinner or thicker in accordance to typical weight distribution. This design creates a layer of comfort without the sweaty bulk of typical padding. To top it off, Maloja gave the chamois an antibacterial treatment to keep you and the pad clean.
For warm fuzzies, you can sleep well knowing that the RamonaM. short is made to the ecologically responsible Bluesign Standard. Bluesign requires that compliant manufacturers follow a restricted chemical and substance list, be conscious of consumer safety, and make steps to lower water and air emissions throughout the manufacturing process. Maloja is, literally, saving the planet, one short at a time.
The Maloja RamonaM. Short is available in sizes from X-Small to X-Large, and in the colors Denim, Granat, Moonless, and Rose.

Liner short has a great chamois and can be worn alone. Outer short is very long... knee length for 5'5.
Made out of spun gold
As you have probably gathered from reading the list price, these shorts are made from spun gold fabric. The rivets on the pockets and construction are made from natural diamonds and emeralds mined by blue monkeys on the surface of the moon. So long as that is what you are in search of, you will not be disappointed.
