Ripton Jeans are now available. My favorite jorts maker is now offering jeans in different washes. Previously, they offered a MTB flavored pant and now there’s a full line in classic, performance, and hiker.
I ordered a performance pair.
And wear them pretty much all the time, except when I’m in Gore kit. The Hiker and Performance jeans offer active, technical designs for any adventure. I’ve found them to be thoughtfully crafted with sturdy construction. I also expect them to last for years of wear and wash cycles. The function-driven features paired with lightweight, stretchy denim give Ripton’s new jeans usefullness and style.

If you’re wondering how they fit, Ripton has posted about that.
We’ve found that Ripton jeans fit true to size, similar to common Levi’s jeans. There can be some variations, so it is good to measure. Also, some of the cool kids like to go up a size for the baggy look.
Note Ripton does not offer multiple inseam sizes. That’s because this is their first run. If they sell out, as I expect they will, Ripton’s customers may get to ask for a 32 inseam instead of a 30. Also, how stretchy are they? As stretchy as your bike shorts.…
