Review of  Levi Commuter Jeans

The Levi’s brand is excited to introduce its latest collection of performance apparel – the new Levi’s® Commuter Series for Winter 2012. Following the successful launch of Levi’s Commuter clothing in the United States last year, the latest Commuter Series offers additional iconic pieces designed specifically for the needs and demands of the urban commuter cyclist and will be available in select markets around the globe.

The collection expands on the original 511 Commuter and Commuter Trucker with new styles featuring performance details that offer cyclists greater mobility, protection, safety and convenience. These products are technologically advanced, without compromising style. Day or night. Hot or cold. Wet or dry. Hill or flat. It’s all about form, function and cycling.

The Levi’s Commuter Series includes the:

· 511 Commuter Trouser

o Features the same performance details of the 511™ Commuter with updated classic trouser styling – available in 3 colors of stretch twill fabric

· All Weather Commuter Trucker Jacket

o The new all weather interpretation of Levi’s iconic Trucker Jacket is made of treated stretch, twill fabric and includes a concealed Nylon hood - perfect for any weather Mother Nature throws your way

· Commuter Work Shirt

o A light weight chambray button-up shirt with 3XDRY technology that helps cool you down, repel water and dirt, and reduce perspiration marks

· Original 511 Commuter & Commuter Trucker Jacket

o The originals are still at the core of the Commuter Series and feature fabric and construction upgrades for increased mobility, durability and protection

Made with the modern cyclist in mind - all Commuter pant and jacket designs have been re-engineered with just the right amount of additional stretch to increase mobility while maintaining their signature fit. The 511 Commuter jeans and trousers both feature a raised back yolk that minimizes lower back exposure while riding, a reinforced crotch gusset that protects against ripping in this high stress area, double back layer pockets, a U-lock storage system and fabric reinforcements throughout. The Trucker jackets and the chambray shirt have extra utility pockets, venting, and modifications to the sleeves, cuffs and tail that enable more comfortable movement while cycling.
