Jeans may not be a first choice for many when it comes to cycling but Vulpine’s offering are a worthy contender. It took a while for me to be able to test them given the hot weather we had during April and May, followed by plenty of rain, but eventually, the heatwave and following rain calmed down allowing more sensible testing conditions.

These jeans are flattering and offer plenty of stretch, I’ve worn them on and off the bike without issue. Designed primarily for commuters, I actually did a 31-mile ride with them on (coupled with Vulpine’s padded boy shorts) on a relatively hot day and wasn’t uncomfortable in the slightest. They breathe and move very well, and I didn’t find they made me overheat.
