Bontrager Commuting Pant£69.99

Smart performance work trousers

BikeRadar score4.5/5

Bontrager's trousers are made from a stretchy polyester mix that’s lightweight and breathable, keeping you comfortable on even longish commutes. Water resistance isn’t great, though they’ll handle light showers and spray, and when they get really wet they dry quickly.

The waist band is adjustable (over 2in), relevant seams are flat stitched to avoid discomfort and each leg can be rolled up and poppered into place. This reveals a 2in wide reflective strip across the full width of each leg, brilliant for riding at night.

There’s plenty of storage: a hidden zipped pocket on the left thigh, two rear pockets with reflective details, two flat front pockets and a stitched-in loop for a small to mid size D-lock. The fit is slim and the look smart enough for most offices.
