Recently, we’ve seen a rise in performance jeans which fit better and have features like four-way stretch fabric that make them more comfortable to wear adventures outside. While many performance jeans provide more freedom of movement than your standard pair, most are still too stiff to effectively climb or bike in. Enter the new Meridian Line Gravity jeans, which launched on Kickstarter last week and are already over 200 percent funded.
I’ve been wearing a pair of the Gravity jeans nearly every day for the past two weeks and have been blown away by the comfort and flexibility they provide. They’re made from an organic cotton-polyester blend with a touch of spandex so they're as soft as my favorite pair of jeans but more durable and quick drying. My favorite part is the stretch: The pants don’t hinder my flexibility whatsoever, no matter the activity. I also have yet to wash them and they’ve retained their form nicely and haven’t stretched out.
The jeans come in two fits, slim and regular, and three washes, granite, dark indigo, and regular. On the inside, the cuffs and inner pockets feature artwork by professional climber, artist, and Meridian Line founder Jeremy Collins.
The jeans will retail for $99 but are currently available on Kickstarter for 20 percent off.
