Bike between car-to-car nightmares.
Osloh gave the Men's Traffic Denim Pant a slim fit to help you avoid each car's side mirror while commuting on your bicycle. Stretch properties help you cycle freely despite the pant's semi-fitted design. The quilted chamois reinforced seat and crotch have low profiles to keep up with the denim's casual style in cities. Osloh also equipped the Traffic with a secure double shank waistband with adjustable side tabs, reinforced leg panels to resist chains, and a double-lined pocket for your cell phone.

- Q & A
Commute in comfort
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 34
I received these pants a few months back and have been waiting for the weather to cool off enough to give them a good review. When you are on the bike, these are some of the most comfortable riding pants. I generally ride in Levis 511's or 514's around down, and these blow them out of the water. They do feel as though they are designed for the cyclist. The mini chamois inside adds just enough padding to make the trip to the bar or store that much more comfortable. It is unnoticeable while you are standing or sitting on anything but a saddle.
The pockets on the pants are numerous, but neither of the phone specific pockets actually fit an iPhone 6, but thats a very small issue. I love to wear these and will continue to wear these around and ride.
My only gripe with the pants is the belt loops and the button fly. I like button fly pants, but when there are two buttons holding the pants up at the top, it makes it difficult to actually un-do the buttons to use the fly. You're pretty much required to fully un-button to use the bathroom. The belt loops are angled in odd directions on the front of the pants and interfere with one of the buttons. Anything larger than a 1" wide belt is tricky to use, and anything with a traditional style buckle is almost a no go.
Sizing is strange, I'm a 36x34 in most pants on a bad year and 34x34 on a good year (Levi's 511 is what i am referring to here).
I got these in 34 waist and they are as roomy as a 36 Levis.
All in all, a fantastic option for those looking for something to wear around town while riding your bike.
First Pair of Osloh's - Initial Thoughts
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 34 waist 30 inseam
I finally got a hold of a pair of these pants. I havent had a chance to use them a ton but, will share some initial impressions.
The Fit: I am 34 waist 30 inseam. I never thought the 34 waist would truly fit because they are a "skinny" jean. They fit my waist perfectly, not loose by any means but, not extremely tight. The 30 inseam comes right to the end of my ankle which is right where I want a bike commuter pant to end.
Construction: These are beautifully constructed. Reinforced in the crotch and inside lower pant leg. No more worrying about ripping the pant leg on the crank mostly because of how tight they fit on my leg but, if I do catch them the reinforcements will hold them up. The reinforcements also have some style to them. Its not just a extra piece of fabric over the high wear areas, there was more thought put into them than that. They definitely feel durable and I presume it will take me a few rides to break them in.
