Description

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.

Found my new jean style!

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

I will forever wear the Levis 511 style. The commuters are a great piece for biking with the reflective stripe, but are an all around great pair of jeans.

Listen to the instructions and DON'T wash them. It seems weird but they get better the longer you wear them. Just spot clean them for stains and pop them in the freezer in a bag if they get funky.

Seriously, Levis are great jeans. Everyone needs to own at least one pair

Now I know why people buy Levi's.

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

I had never owned a pair of Levi's before until the Commuter 511 caught my eye. I finally decided to buy a pair and I wish I would've done this a long time ago! These pants are great for riding to school or work, but then you can keep wearing them without changing because not only are they functional, but they look great! Good looking pants that are actually functional for riding a bike, those are hard to come by, but the Commuter 511 pants are my new favorite pants. I plan on buying more of these pants in the future. The reflective outseam is perfect for biking at night and they are so comfortable.

Now I know why people buy Levi's.

A classic for a reason.

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

Purchased these for my dad. He's worn 511s forever, and while he's noticed the cuts and details have changed here and there, he loves this new pair as much as any he's had, and he'll order more eventually, as well.

Solid construction!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Really happy with these jeans, like the reflective strip on ankle cuff and other minor details. I'm hard on pants and these seem really well-made. They do fit quite tight and I plan to order a size up with my next purchase.

Fit well

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I got these for my dad because I know how much he loves them, and always talks about how comfortable they are. Try them out!

Great jeans!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

These jeans are so comfortable! They fit great when I first got them, but my roommate threw them in the dryer on high for like an hour after my first time washing them and now they are no longer slim, but full on skinnys. I'm guessing once I wear them a little bit and break them they will loosen back up though. Other than that I love the fit and feel of them. The 511 series from Levis are awesome and affordable!

They do run a little small though. I normally wear a 32", but Im discovering with the 511's that sizing up is a good idea.

living up to expectations

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

As someone who bike commutes everywhere I go, I was hoping these pants would live up to their description and so far I have not been let down whatsoever. I believe Levi 's when they said they actual did their homework when designing these pants. They feel and look great just as I expect from a regular pair of 511's. They also have some small details that add up (ulock holster, reflective inseam, reinforced crotch, etc). The only con I've noticed is that they are a tad on the small size. I usually wear a 33 waist and while the 33x34 fit, I wish I would have gotten the 34x34. So if you're on the fence, maybe go with the bigger size.

stylish

Great jeans, wont buy any other brand.

I bike, hike, and sleep in these.

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

I love these jeans, they are the only pair I own/wear anymore.
Super comfortable, great fit, and very durable.
I usually wear a pair down over the course of a year (wearing them almost everyday).
I can't recommend them enough, you won't be disappointed!

Like em don't love em

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

I'm a big fan of skinnier fitting jeans and out of the packaging these things fit perfect. However, after wearing them for a day they stretch out and don't fit as tight as I would like them to I almost wish I would have gotten a size down. The look is great but the fit could use a tad bit of work. I'm 6'4" 215lbs

Picky about jeans, and these are great.

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

I love these jeans! They have Nanosphere technology where the texture is that of a leaf or a butterfly wing, which is supposed to repel dirt and water--and it works! Everything beads off, even when submerged in water as if it's coated with some sort of treatment.

The Indigo Better Rigid color is a nice dark wash with enough of the white yarns (weft) visible to give the jeans a nice visible texture.

These jeans have a U-lock strap/holder on the waistband and reflective strips added to the interior when cuffing the hem; a higher rise for eliminating plumber's crack that doesn't contribute any awkwardness to the appearance of the pants; and the reinforced crotch that feels like it should help prevent crotch blowouts. All great features for bikers, but you don't need to be a biker for these to work well for you.

The right front pocket's lining is a vibrant green--cool detail--and is quite deep, fitting my iPhone 6 effectively. The zipper fly and button function smoothly.

These are the slimmest jeans I've worn, but they're not skinny. They were a bit tight around the calves at first but fit perfectly after wearing them for a few days. I recommend giving them a shot before listening to the people who returned them without taking into account the inevitable stretch you can expect from denim.

I'm a 33 waist and hemmed the length to size. These are sanforized, but you may still want to consider giving them a warm soak (or wash, if that's what you're into) prior to hemming if you're concerned about shrinkage. True to size. Great fit. Will continue to purchase.

Wearing them right now.

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

I bought a pair of the indigo better rigid, and a pair of the black. Both pair are super comfy and fit very well, and the material used is pretty solid. Definitely feels like these pants will hold up for a long time. The fit looks slim but feels relaxed. Most slim fit pants I own are constrictive (especially when sitting down), these don't present that problem.

Tyson what are your specs? Did the pants run true to size?
How is the fabric?

Responded on

My Specs are 33x32. These are definitely true to size. The fabric is solid. The black pair seem to be a magnet for pet hair.. something to keep in mind.

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.

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!
