They're not true commuter jeans, so they don't truly belong in this roundup, but 7 for all Mankind's new "active" jeans are probably the most comfortable pants we've ever worn on a ride. They are made of a denim and synthetic blend that's similar to the one used in commuters, but the inside is specially brushed in a way that makes them feel like cashmere. The cut is quite narrow, so if you crave the snug fit of bike shorts, then grab these and go. Without much in the way of extra reinforcement, they'd likely wear out as quickly as an average pair of jeans, but it's almost worth the risk. [$198; 7forallmankind.com]
