Ride in style.

If you've heard of the Levi's Commuter 511 Denim Pants, you've probably been struggling to find them all year. Well, we're happy to tell you that your quest is finally over, and believe us, it's been worth the wait.

These aren't some run-of-the-mill, one-off attempt at appeasing a subculture. Instead, Levi's worked closely with cyclists in multiple cities around America, distributing prototypes and accepting feedback. And, as a result of developing the pants in accordance to critique, Levi's effectively dialed-in the fit, accoutrement, and finishes to what cyclists are actually asking for.

Accordingly, Levi's adapted its slim-fit 511s to the purpose of cycling. The Commuter 511s feature a water-resistant and dirt-repellent NanoSphere protective finish to make commuting in hostile weather a little more acceptable, especially if your destination is the office. It's for this very reason that Levi's also incorporated an odor-resistant Sanitized finish to the pants, too. Levi's also made these pants perfect for trips where your bag is staying at home by installing a U-lock holster along the rear of the waistband. This way, you're not ramming your lock down your pants, wearing out your belt, or being forced to wear a fanny-pack -- you're grown man after all.

In terms of durability, Levi's double-layered the seat panel and the rear pockets. Additionally, the crotch of the 511 is gusseted in order to resist tearing and saddle abrasion. In terms of fit, it's important to note that Levi's considers the 511 a slim-fit pair of pants. They sit slightly below the waist and feature a skinny, tapered leg. However, for the sake of coverage while in the saddle, these 511s have been cut higher in the rear than a standard pair.

And to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, Levi's incorporated reflective 3M Scotchlite tape on the interior of the pant's cuffs.

The Levi's Commuter 511 Denim Pants are available in the colors Grey Denim and Rigid Indigo and in the sizes 29x30, 30x30, 31x32, 32x30, 33x32, 34x32, 34x34, 36x32, and 36x34.

My new go to!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The best jean I have had in a while. Got one pair and instantly bought two more. Great fit, good stretch, durable, and do not lose shape when I wear them for weeks on end without washing. If you like these, also check out the 511 trousers! Another new favorite!

Big Fan

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I've got several pairs of the commuter pants, they're all great. The jeans are soft, fit well, and feel well made. Highly recommend. They're the same color as pictured and fit consistently.

Insignia Blue Nano

Insignia Blue Nano

Our inventory for the Insignia Blue Nano currently looks like this picture not what we have up at the moment. Just an FYI

Does the 'better indigo rigid' and 'black'...

Does the 'better indigo rigid' and 'black' have a zipper or do they have a button fly? I have a previous version and it has a button fly, which I don't mind- but I would prefer a zipper.

Pant Steeze..

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The levis 511 commuter have quickly become my go-to pant. I now have 5 pairs....

Super tough, perfect stretch, perfect fit, cool little features and these are treated with just about every type of thing you can imagine. Hard to stain, water beads off of them. Don't ever wash them, seriously, no reason to.

If you have never owned a pair of these, just try a pair. You will never wear another pair of jeans.

The Best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The pants rules. They're my favorite pants to skate in. Stretchy, durable, and stink-resistant. Cant go wrong. I have multiple pairs.

Best Jeans Ever

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These are the most comfortable jeans I have ever owned. They are great when on the bike too. They stretch in all the right places and feel like they are very durable and of good quality. Should last much longer than the cheap jeans I have been buying.

Best jeans I've ever owned

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I'm not sure how they did it, but Levi's nailed these pants.

I ride my bike pretty much every day, and I've been searching for a pair of jeans that I can wear to work that will survive the rides and I believe that I've found them here. (I've been considering going with a $200 pair from Rapha for over a year, and I no longer feel I need to now that Levi's has developed these). A rundown of my impressions so far:

Material: The material seems strong but has some stretch to it. So far, so good.
Fit: I've never been one for skinny jeans, but somehow these guys fit perfectly. Not so much room that the pant leg rubs against the chain, but not so tight that I feel restricted.
Features: Really like the reflectors on the inside of the legs. Every pant should have these!

My favorite denim

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These jeans are my absolute favorite. I have replaced all of my more expensive denim with this pair. Just the right amount of skinny without being obscene and enough stretch to never feel restrictive

Responded on

I think we need to take an office poll about whether these have crossed the line into obscene territory.

best for cold weather commute

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I am 5'10" 165lbs and the 32x30 is perfect in length and waist. These pants are really durable, have some stretch for pedaling, and look just as good off the bike as on. I try not to wash them too often because I've heard they loose their water-resistance, and when I do I use "active wear" washing liquid (same stuff I use for my bibs). Really comfortable and versatile, 45 degrees is my cutoff for whether or not I wear tights under them.

Stretchy and Durable

Stretchy and Durable

The combination of stretch and durability make these a great all-season option... Not only reserved for cycling adventures; also awesome for camping, hiking and log-pulling.

Best pants ever!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Perfect fit, solid construction, and comfortable with good stretch. If I could only own 1 pair of pants these would be them.

Everything Jeans

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is a great pair of jeans, simply put. Haven't really taken them off since I bought them. They seem to be made for climbing as well, with the extra crotch fabric, slim leg, and ample stretch. Although I wouldn't recommend them to a bigger legged fellow, as they are a bit on the slim side (especially after you wash/dry them), these fit perfectly. Buy these jeans!

Best levis!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These are the best pair of levis I have ever had! And I've been wearing levis exclusively since 2005, so that is saying something. I've been wearing these everyday now for about three weeks, and they seem just like they were brand new. They hold their shape, and the fit and feel is fantastic. These commuter jeans are built especially fine, you can tell they put their time into every seam. I really like how they rise higher on the back, so I don't show off my undies! These are great Highly recommend.
