Live, work, and ride.

Sure, you tear up the tarmac after work, but Levi's wants to know why you're not riding everywhere, all of the time? Yes, we're referring to the two words that strike fear into the hearts of all Lycra-coveting men on earth — bicycle commuting. Perhaps you've tried in the past, and perhaps your momentary feeling of accomplishment was crushed by sneers directed toward your cycling kit? Trust us, whether it be at the liquor store or the office, we've all experienced that "huh?" look. Enter the Levi's Commuter 511 Trousers. Finally, you're able to ride, work, and live in one pair of pants, and actually look the part for all three.

The Commuter 511 Trousers feature a water-resistant and dirt-repellent NanoSphere protective finish to make commuting in hostile weather a little more acceptable, especially if your ending destination is the office. It's for this very reason that Levi's also incorporated an odor-resistant Sanitized finish to the pants. 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 a supposedly grown man after all.

For 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 as a slim-fit pair of pants. They sit slightly below the waist and feature a skinny, slightly 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.

For the pockets, these trousers have been given slashed front pockets, like a chino, with built-in stretch webbing at the corners. Meanwhile, the rear pockets feature a welted design. And to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, Levi's incorporated reflective 3M Scotchlite tape on the interior of the pants' outseams.

Here's what others have to say...


Little restricting...

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs small

I put they run small, thats because they are extra slim it seems... The fit of these doesnt seem to be the true 511. I own around 5 pair of 511s in the denims and they are not too tight, and they stretch. . These are just skinny trousers. No stretch.. But they do fit quite slim and thats what i was going for.. just a pair of slacks to not look like a shmuch in front of the in-laws. And hey. It worked!


Whoever made those doesn't bike.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've never hated an inanimate object like that. I owned Levi's older commuter model for a couple of years before wearing through them. I loved them and decided to get these. Worst money I've ever spent. Why?

- They are tight but don't stretch. When I pedal, I'm pedaling against the pants more than I'm pedaling to go forward.

- They don't have the reinforced part where your seat bones meat the saddle.

- My keys popped out of my pocket while riding a couple of times.

- The back is not raised, so you end up flashing everyone behind you when you lean forward on your bike.

- No loop in the back to carry your lock.

- Collect dust like crazy. By the time I get my bike downstairs, I have long lines of dirt and dust on my pants.

- They're noisy when I walk, the fabric almost sounds like I'm wearing plastic bags.

- Over all uncomfortable and can be too warm in the summer.


I like them.

I bought 2 pair of these and have used them to commute to and from work. They hold up well on the bike and look pretty good at work. I think a different saddle is in order. My rear end is hamburger meat from riding in these pants on a saddle intended for pairing with padded shorts but that's not on the pants. They flex well and have a cool reflective strip that's exposed when you fold the up from the bottom. I definitely recommend them. They are snug so I'm going to order a size up when I order my next pair. The were a bit too snug on my knees/thighs and rub a little.
