Nice and favorite 511 fit - close in the butt, hip and thigh without being constrictive in the waist. Nice weight and slight stretch for easy motion or pedaling.
Cool color(s) here as well.
I recommend this product!

These shorts are a blessing. My usual commuting shorts were simply commuter jean cutoffs, but I'm glad to see Levi's has decided to offer shorts.
They feel fantastic. They have a slim, comfortable fit through the the waist, and a little bit of room at the legs allows you mash away without being constricted, and the shorts breathe very well. The material seems rugged without being too thick or heavy, and the reinforced stitching (especially around the saddle area) looks to be extremely solid. I hope to get a lot of use out of these shorts!
Rain and water beads off them pretty well. Although they are not completely water repellent, they dry very quickly and don't carry that dank, wet smell when they're dry. My commutes can be long and hot, so this is a plus for me.
Atheistically speaking, I think they look very sharp. A little more 'professional' looking than my tight commuter cutoffs, and pair well with t-shirts, collared sleeves, even tank tops. I have the light khakis, but would like to get a pair in each color. Although I have never tried them, they remind of the Rapha touring shorts, but with a little more functionality (for commuters) and (I believe) greater value.
My one gripe with these are that the U-lock loop accommodates only but the smallest locks. I can squeeze my OnGuard mini in there if I'm not in the shorts, but it won't fit when I wear them. It's not really a deal breaker for me, as my pack has a U-lock strap and I can always slip it between my belt. But otherwise, it's kind of useless.
All in all, a great pair of stylish, functional shorts. I recommend them to anyone who enjoys commuting without getting decked out in lycra! Not that it's a bad thing...
I recommend this product!

Great color, bought it in the other color as well. It seems a bit small, but haven't worn them yet out on the bike (the weather has been too cold), but I look forward to it! They are soft, have all the great features from the rest of the Commuter line. Recommend it to all my urban cycle commuters!

The shorts run a bit tighter than expected so maybe try a size up from your usual. The shorts are tight if you actually have leg muscles from riding so again I suggest a size up. The color is spot on but its shinier than expected. Overall a great summer short
