When I'm not racing or training in a spandex race kit, I like baggies from Troy Lee Designs. They sell them with a liner or as a shell. I bought just the shell only and wear lycra shorts or bibs under. I like the former for mtb just out of convenience and while my bibs are more comfy, my mtb rides aren't as long as my road ones. I have 4 pairs of lycra shorts and wash each after every ride, but don't bother washing the shell unless it was a super dirty ride, just washing it after 2-3 rides. TLD and other brands of dedicated mtb baggies are cut differently than street shorts so they don't catch the saddle as you move around.
