A2B Commuter Pant

You've experienced the frustration of battling overcrowded highways and negotiating constant construction on your daily drive to work. Alleviate this painful ordeal once and for all with the pedal-friendly design of the Arc'teryx Men's A2B Commuter Pant. This commuter pant effortlessly pedals to work, the local coffee shop, and downtown pubs alike, thanks to its stretch-woven fabric. It's tailored with a trim fit that's both thoroughly modern and sleek enough to prevent chain snags. This streamlined fit is complemented with articulated patterning that allows for unrestricted pedaling.

Not only is the A2B Commuter Pant streamlined and stretchy, but just as importantly, it repels rain showers and dries quickly with its Schoeller 3XDRY technology. This means you'll arrive at work looking and feeling fresh, even if you're subjected to light rain and road spray. It's equipped with reflective hits on the underside of the cuffs and fold-out reflectors along the back pockets, allowing you to stay visible in low-light conditions while tucking away once you're finished riding for a more casual aesthetic.

  • Dedicated commuter pants for riding to work
  • Stretch-woven fabric conforms to every pedal stroke
  • Schoeller 3XDRY repels rain and speeds up drying time
  • Fold-out reflectors on back pockets for added visibility
  • Cuff reflectors visible only when the bottoms are folded up
  • Roomy hand pockets and zippered cargo pocket along thigh

Great casual biking pant

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 30

I have been wearing these for a few years now, and love them for when I'm biking around town or into work. They have a great athletic slim fit but not restricting due to their stretch. They have great mobility and I wear them climbing all the time. Zippered thigh pocket is great for my phone, but I wish it faced up so I didn't have to zip it up just to keep the phone from falling out.

They're developing holes now - around where I keep my wallet and around the crotch gusset, and could probably be a little more durable where there is lots of friction. I'll probably just patch them up to stretch their use for a couple more years

Good pants, but beware of new version

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 36w

I only post reviews after I’ve tested a product. I purchased the A2B pants fall 2016, and rode very regularly a 6-7 mile round trip per day commute, plus other frequent riding over the past 2+ years. Only now did the pants start to develop threadbare spots in the high-wear seat areas (not holes yet, but you can see through the threads). So the material is durable.

The sizes run small. I am 6’2”, 200lbs, and normally wear a 34x34 pant. I had to size up to 36” waist on these, and the inseam was a little short (okay for a bike pant).

I’m not sure why you’d ever have to wear your bike pants to a business meeting - I get changed into work clothes at work - but that’s how they market these things. Personally I don’t think these pants would be appropriate for any but the most casual offices.

So while I can recommend the 2016 pants, I’ve read that the new version is a vast departure from previous runs. If the material is the same then at least you can expect to be purchasing a durable commuter pant suitable for very casual wear and not much else.

I am 5'9" and 160 lbs. I wear a 30x32 pant. I own an older version of the A2B commuter pant from 2015 (I think that's the year) and these new pants are a very different beast. The thighs and calves are really tight for me, and I am not anywhere close to speed skater physique. I like a fitted look but these are 'skinny jean' tight. I get that these will work wonderfully for some frames-more power to you!

The reflectors on the seat are easily stashed and I hope that more brands get on board with this type of design. But what really gets me about these pants...what really twists earlobes! The rolled cuff reflectors are positioned on the sides of the leg, not the back or all the way around. Why in the world would you design a pant with all sorts of special attributes and not put reflectors where traffic coming from multiple angles could see them???!!? I would characterize these pants as stylishly useless and great for arousing frustration in me.

Disappointed in this new version.

I bought a pair of the A2B Commuters last year. This new version is a complete departure from the pair I bought. So much so, that it's a completely different fit, on top of being a different design, and material. I love Arc'teryx and own lots of it. For the first time, I am disappointed by something from them.

In the photo below, the new version is darker and on the right. You can see the fit is totally different. The previous version had an awesome athletic fit. The new ones are more like chinos.

Disappointed in this new version.

Best Commuting Pants Ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34

I never write reviews, but for the Arcteryx A2B pants I'll make an exception. If you're putting in miles to get to work and expect to look professional when you get there you can count on these pants. BetaBrands, Prana, and Giro commuting pants all run super skinny (like hipster-skinny), so if you're expected to tuck in your shirt at work good luck! The A2B's run a bit bigger in the legs so you're not worried about ripping a seam if you have bigger thighs than the average road cyclist. They also work super-well as business travel pants as they don't wrinkle.

Changed product same name

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 32 x 32

I have several pairs of the a2b chinos and the old version of the a2b commuters. I commute on my bike every day and wear these whenever the weather permits (not below 30℉)These pants are more similar fit to the a2b chino with a newer material that has more stretch. These pants are much slimmer fit, almost skinny fit. The old model was a more relaxed fit with snaps on the cuffs to keep the cuff out of the chain. These are tight enough that they do not need the snaps on the cuffs. I like the new material as it has more stretch and is comfortable. The previous Commuter material was stiffer and thicker which wore better and was more durable (in the crotch) than the Chino which was more cotton. The new version has the short crotch/zipper which requires unbuttoning the pants to use the restroom which previous reviewers complained about, but does not really bother me. Not a big deal to take an extra few seconds. I like the product and recommend them, just be aware that the fit is tighter than the a2b chino and much tighter than the previous a2b commuter. They should have changed the name to reflect how different the product is.
On all of the models, the zippered pocket on the leg is perfect for my phone and card key.

Change is Difficult

  • Fit: Runs small

What can I say, I own 4 pairs of these pants when they first came out. Dressy and durable, fits well and good in various climates. Stretches in the correct places and comfortable. So, here is why my rating is only 3 stars. As much as I love Arcteryx, they changed these pants and kept the name.

Arc'teryx - Men's A2B Commuter Pant

    Trim-fitting pants easily transition from the urban bike commute to daily living.

    High quality, high comfort, high frequen

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    Very comfortable pants, I often wear a casual and a bike, 32 of the waist is a little big, but still very good for my 82cm's waist. Not only is the trousers slightly longer, if not rolled up when can appear some abrupt, but roll up and is not too formal, other types of Arc'teryx pants I have,

    High quality, old fashion style

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 34

    This product was typically high quality from Arc'teryx, but the fir was very baggy. Perhaps suitable for outdoor wear only, but not as a substitute for daily wear. Also, I found thi product slightly large for it's size.

    Best Cycling Pant on the Market

    I now have eight pair of Arcteryx Commuter Pants and Knickers. They are well made. The fit for me someone that is tall (6'1) and thin (34" waist) is perfect. I highly recommend them to others.
