Levi’s Commuter

The Levi’s Commuter collection was introduced in the summer of 2011 and is designed for urban cyclists. The 511 Commuter provides greater convenience, safety, mobility, and protection compared to conventional Levi’s jeans “no matter how you roll,” as Levi’s puts it. The fabrics have a water-resistant and dirt-repellent NanoSphere protective finish and an odor-resistant Sanitized protective finish. Also, reflective 3M Scotchlite tape on busted outerseems that comes in handy when cuffed. Another great feature is the U-lock storage on waistband; double-layered seat and back pockets.

The jeans sit below the waist and have a skinny fit and skinny leg and a slightly higher back rise compared to the regular 511.

The denim version is 9.9 oz. and the twill version is 10 oz. They’re both 98% cotton and 2% elastane.

The hooded Trucker jacket has a concealed nylon hood, utility pockets, and shoulder gussets for increased mobility. Also, the extended tail and sleeves makes it perfect for sitting on your bike.

Here’s a little video Levi’s shot to promote the concept.
