    I thought I might treat myself and quite fancy the look of these.
    There are weekend days when I’ll often take the kids out for a pootle on the bikes and thought these might be good for that – rather than changing into more cycling specific gear.

    Whaddya think?

    The reviews I’ve seen suggest the Levi’s stuff misses the mark- too hot and quite crinkly/crumply to wear. That and there’s hardly anywhere that sells them. Better offerings from Swrve maybe.

    Plenty of places sell it, particularly online.

    The jeans/trousers fit true to size in my experience. The jackets
    are a little on the slim side, but I think that’s deliberate.

    For what it’s worth I’m 6 ft tall, 40 inch chest, 32 inch waist and
    12 1/4 stone and have the 32/32 jeans and a medium denim jacket.
    It’s fairly expensive, but then so is everything.

    Denim + Rain = Er, no.

    Unless you’re a fair weather fairy, I can’t see the point, TBH.

    I live in Scotland – why on earth would the weather be a problem 😯

    Haven’t tried the Levis, but have a pair of Muxu denims from alwaysriding which are the comfiest jeans I’ve ever owned and would definitely recommend.

    I have some Swrve jeans, and they are ace. As they are also made with Cordura re-inforced denim they last ages too and look pretty good off the bike as well.

    What’s the fit like? Baggy/tight?

    Somewhere in between I’d say – they look like a smart pair of denims but the cut and stretch in the material makes them really comfortable, plus they do a long length which suits me.

    Alpkit used to do a denim that was pretty water resistant and stretchy for climbers. Don’t know how they would cope with commuting conditions, or whether you’d end up wrapped around your chainring.

    Think they are 511s with water repellant fabric and some 3M reflective tape. In this country they don’t stock my 31/32 size, but my normal 511s are comfortable for cycling modest distances. I chose another pair of 511 cut trousers instead when I was in the US earlier this year.

    Don’t think the Alpkit ones were stretchy, mine certainly aren’t. Moon do / used to do stretchy climbing ones.

    Prana do 4 way stretch ones or Alpinestars do proper Kevlar lined jeans. Axiom is the model 😉

    Thanks. I might invest.

    Do they do them in skinny?

    I have a pair; mild water repellancy and no stretchiness- the only real benefit is a panel in the crotch that prevents a seam along the saddle line. Swrve and others are a better bet for cycling?
