Erik in Swedenwrote a review of Levi's Commuter Cargo Pants on December 29, 2013
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are incredible pants. I live in Chicago and ride year round and have been searching for great pants I can wear on my daily commute to work. In the past month I have worn these pants almost daily and I'm impressed by the following characteristics:
Material. These guys are tough and warm without being bulky. Water beads off and I think they will last a long time.
Features. I love the reflectors inside the pant legs, additional reflectors at the corner of each rear pocket, and the snaps at the cuff of the legs. Also the small strip of rubber sewn into the left cargo pocket is genius for keeping my phone inside the pocket while pedaling. And the slightly tailored knees make pedaling much more comfortable than regular pants.
It's obvious that Levi's did their homework here, and in my opinion these pants are a home run.
