Baggy Shorts?

I'm thinking of doing some bikepacking and it seems to me that baggy shorts would eliminate the need to bring separate bike specific riding apparel and something for around town/camp.

The only riding clothes I own are road specific - bib shorts and road jerseys. I'm ignorant of baggy MTB style shorts and so a few questions...

Worth getting in general given the use case - riding 40 to 50 miles/day and then camp with a few visits to towns?

Do they typically come with compression liners and padding built-in or does one typically have to purchase separate lining?

Snagging on the saddle and flapping in the wind? Given the popularity I assume this is a non issue.

Brand and model recommendation? I don't mind buying something nice and looked at Kitsbow but wow, I thought road stuff was expensive!

What else do I need to know?
