Over the past few years Levi’s has offered bike friendly clothes for men – from jeans with U-lock storage on the waistband to tops with greater mobility. Hey, Levis! What about the ladies? Well, they heard us. Recently, Levi’s launched a similar line of bike friendly apparel for women by offering jeans, shorts, tops and jackets designed for the everyday bike commuter.
I had the opportunity to try out the new skinny bike friendly jeans this past week. With thoughts of warm, spring rides on my mind, I slipped on the skinny women’s commuter jeans in baby blue. Right away, I noticed the high waist that was pretty flattering. But I also noticed that the fabric (60% Cotton, 30% Other Fibres, 8% Polyester, 2% Elastane) was a little on the thin side, which made panty lines pretty apparent. The jeans also had deep back pockets that’ll keep your keys or lipstick from slipping out mid-ride. Overall, the pants had a nicely tailored fit that was flattering on my curvy shape. I rolled up the cuff to expose the reflective seam detail which will come in really handy to increase visibility at night. Not to mention, I thought that little detail looked pretty cute with my wood Hasbeen sandals during the day.
