I have MTB specific shorts by Zoic, Oakley, Royal, and Maloja. Bought them all on clearance from Competitivecyclist.com. IIRC, they were priced between $30-39 per pair. Stick with dark colors unless you want the poopy pants look after a muddy ride. Try to find some with zippered mesh vents and liners.

So you're willing to run the risk of seriously overheating and being extremely uncomfortable, in the woods, with no one else around, in an effort to not appear 'gay'?

No i dont like to expose my legs when doing a down hill run. It would be like wearing shorts on a motorcycle.
I was simply looking for a non lycra / spandex type pants because I dont think think they could hold up to the road rash of a down hill get off

Except you'll be traveling much lower speeds, be crashing on dirt and trees aren't texting and drinking frappamochacino's during lane changes at 75mph. Just busting balls - seriously though, look into some shin/knee pads to wear under 'baggy' mtb shorts, and over some spandex/padded bike shorts. I use this exact setup and swear by it, plus you don't look like a lycra tool. They'll protect your legs better than DH pants will, and you won't overheat as easily or harvest mushrooms out of your grundle. EMS makes some good enduro type baggy mtb shorts that come with padded undershorts and they're priced pretty well to boot.

Best idea I have is to get some full mesh motorcycle over-pants to wear over the padded shorts you have. That way you have some airflow over your lower body, and some protection from the ground. Seems like that would not be comfortable though

Personally, I wear board shorts with Under Armour athletic briefs underneath and a technical t-shirt when riding. All the local trails are in forests, where there is no wind, very high humidity, and high heat. Any more clothes than I already wear would be way too much.

Baggy mountainbike shorts are available for people not secure in their sexuality.

Proper bike kit is worth having, or you'll be surprised (and in your case threatened) by how much your butt hurts.

as a fat old guy, i love the MTB shorts. No longer to cars pull over while drivers scream "eye bleach, I need eye bleach" in agony digging at their eyes.

shin guards help a lot when you fall, but you do get scratches. Man up.

From a practical standpoint I see where you are coming from. I went riding on a pretty hot day last summer and thought, I'll just wear my bids and jersey, it will be WAY more comfortable. I usually wear "baggy" shorts over padded underwear.
I SHREDDED them. Totally ruined a set of $100 bibs..... I did not fall, it was from my hips bouncing off of trees and rock outcroppings. I can't imagined what would have happened if I had fallen.
That said, I would die in pants. We don't get to go down nearly enough to get the airflow needed.
