The Women’s Bike Pant Saga Continues

This Indiegogo campaign is looking for funding to create “the perfect women’s bike pant.” Worth a look, if you’re like me and have been lamenting the lack of commuter-friendly women’s bike apparel.

These seem pretty cool – although I would quibble with their claim that their product is unique. There are at least two other companies making a similar pant. The main high point for this product right now is the price point: you can pre-order pants for $99, which is billed as a 25% discount. Even if you paid full price, this would still make them about 50% less than Outlier’s option.

Worth mentioning – there’s no fly, and there’s a hidden, magnetic roll-up loop on the right leg. I’m waiting until they’re in production and I can get these into a dressing room, but I’m excited to see women jumping into the market place and making the products that fit our lifestyles.

  1. Hey there – thanks for the shout out! (Meghan from iladora) – we will have these in production this fall and hope you’ll try them out. We really focused on features that made your bike ride better while looking style-forward like the straight leg cut, raised waistband for coverage, durable and water resistant fabric, and the invisible side zipper and hidden magnets you mentioned above – looking forward to helping more ladies feel comfortable and look good on their bikes! :)
