Rated2out of5bycharlieseattlefromRecommend Levi's commuter jeans insteadI've bought the Levi 511's ('slim fit commuter denim'), also available at REI, and only tried on the Novara jeans.
I found these jeans to be too tight in the thigh area (hello, I bike a lot) and on the baggy side near the ankles - definitely a 'regular' if not 'bootcut' fit. Too tight to comfortably walk around in, although with a whole 10% elastic in the material I'm sure they stretch ok on the bike.
The baggy ankles and the way they did the single reflective tab there mean I'd have to roll them up quite a bit to keep them out of the way, hiding the reflective tab. A tapered fit, like the 511's, is much more practical here.
The crotch padding is brilliant, but unfortunately the fit was a deal-breaker.

Rated5out of5byhafizfromPerfect, stylish and BAGUSI always wear it when I cycle to work. Comfortable and easier for me, no need to change or to bring extra pant like I did before. Size and length 100% suit me no need to alter, 30" inseem just nice for those who are not so tall.
Bagus (very good)

Rated4out of5byimpatientfromLadies, check these out!Originally tried to force these on husband- back pocket flaps not to his liking.
I wanted full length cycling jeans, not capris, so tried them on. Very surprised to get 30 inch inseam.
Comfortable with plenty of features.
