So you think you’re a hotshot bike commuter, eh? That is, until the weather takes a turn for the worse and then it’s back to the car. But a company called Vear is looking to change that with a new set of rain pants designed for use in the worst of conditions. They’ve just launched a Kickstarter program they’re hoping will drive this new product off the production line, onto the market, and hopefully into your closet.
Aside from the “stylish” claim (rain pants are never stylish, get over it), the Vear pants are packed with thoughtful commuter bike friendly features. The handy graphic below pretty much sums them all up in an easy to understand fashion.
These pants also come equipped with a clever shoe cover that prevents water that is streaming down the front of your legs from soaking your shoes. They also have a handy tear away feature that allows you to quickly remove them, and then store the pants in their own back pocket as well.
Vear is pushing the eco-friendly angle of their gear by encouraging users to send their old, abused pants back to the manufacturer so they can be recycled. For your troubles, you’ll be rewarded with feeling good about saving the environment (you are a bike commuter after all) and a ten per cent discount towards your next pair.
If this speaks to you, head on over to their Kickstarter page to get in on the early bird special before 27 November 2015 to continue your quest to do right by the world.
