The 5 Best New Jeans for Climbing, Commuting, and Everything in Between

Whether you're a skinny jean fanatic, or into the simple boot cut look, there is definitely a pair of jeans waiting to love you from the waist down.

The evolution of performance denim continues: Thanks to better fits and higher durability, you really can do anything in a pair of jeans. Whether you’re doing yoga, yard work, climbing, or commuting to work on your bike, here are five stylish pairs of jeans you need to know about right now.

BEST FOR COMMUTES: Swrve Indigo Cordura Skinny Fit

The dirty secret of some mass-market biking jeans: You pedal home in a much looser pair than you started the day in. But not with Swrve’s version—its tough Cordura holds its shape despite offering plenty of stretch. The extra give and a higher waist in back make them ideal for even the longest bike commute.

BEST FOR YOGA (SERIOUSLY): Duer Performance Denim Slim


Vancouver-based Duer imparts a load of tech into workday jeans: It starts with lightweight denim, then weaves in Coolmax moisture-wicking fibers, plenty of spandex, and a silver-based, stink-fighting antimicrobial. The result is flexible enough that you could fire off down dogs while wearing them.

BEST FOR HIKING: Backcountry Denim Classic Fit


If you like the look of old-school selvedge but want something even tougher, try a pair of this Marin County startup’s jeans. They’re built to last two and a half times the lifespan of your standard department-store pair, and they have double-reinforced, wallet-proof pockets in back.


[post_ads]Made with organic cotton, recycled polyester, and Lycra, these Swedish jeans offer enough flex and comfort to keep on for a full year (although we don’t recommend it). They’d likely look no different at the end: A treatment on the fabric prevents fading. The fit is roomy, but Redew offers slimmer cuts.

BEST FOR CLIMBING: Mountain Hardwear Crux Jean

[post_ads]Sure, every rip and tear tells a story, but wouldn’t you just rather have pants that are rock-proof? The Cruxes are just that, thanks to ultrastrong Dyneema fibers. (The Backcountry Denims use the stuff, too.) Order a size down (they fit loose), and don’t expect to buy jeans again for a while.
