Default Tight jeans or loose jeans

I don't find a discussion on this already.

Give me your thoughts on the tightness or looseness of your jeans on comfort for long rides. I suspect that if your pants are looser in the booty, your butt will have more room to adjust to the cushioning of your seat, thus leading to more comfort for longer on a long ride.

Agree or disagree? All of my jeans are a little on the tight side, and I find my butt gets numb pretty quickly.

Thanks!

EXCELLENT question. I definitely say loose. Comfort is EVERYTHING when riding my friend. Especially long distance.

I wear 5.11 cargo type which are not only loose, but the cargo pockets are GREAT GREAT GREAT to carry stuff in.

If it is really cold out (40 degrees when NOT riding) then I have plenty of room to put hot chillis on.

I will tell you another thing that I do thatů With the cargo pockets I hand so the middle of the pocket from the bottom up halfway. This way one pocket can easily hold several items in their own compartment without sliding around the whole place. Which would drive me crazy. If you want a picture of it let me know.

But definitely looser not tighter.

I've found the right underwear is more important...LD Comfort is the best I've found. Saxx is good too, but completely different.

Great reply. Thanks. Let's see a pic of the pants, if you have one handy. I'm curious, but not likely to emulate. I had an accident once, and the keys in my pocket added some abrasions. So I never ride with anything in a pocket - pants, shirt or jacket. As they say, dress for the accident.

So, is that tight, or at least snug, underwear under loose jeans?
