An office environment calls for pants like slacks or chinos, while dressing for long trips usually means wearing sweatpants, as comfort is key. But what happens if your long daily commute is to work? Of course, you’re not going to carry around an extra set of clothes to change into.
For the longest time, there really wasn’t an in-between, until now — the Rhone Commuter Pants.
Rhone specializes in premium activewear for the modern man, so the brand definitely knows a thing or two about functionality and performance.
When I found out about their pants, I jumped at the opportunity to test them because I have a long commute from New Jersey into New York City every day.
After just a few wears, I was honestly blown away. No matter if I’m working, traveling, or just hanging out, I like to wear clothes that are comfortable, and the Rhone Commuter Pants definitely exceeded my expectations. The pants are made out of FlexKnit, a Japanese stretch fabric, so they’re super comfortable.
They’re more comfortable than any dress pants or jeans that I own — it really feels like I’m wearing sweatpants to work, without a sweatpants look.
Comfort is only one reason why I love these pants. What makes these pants perfect for commuting is the security and media pockets. The security pocket is essentially an extra pocket within the back pocket. Its hidden and has a zipper, so what’s inside stays inside until you’re ready to take it out. The media pocket is located inside the front right pocket. There’s no zipper, but it’s a snug, yet stretchy compartment that’ll fit any smartphone.
Working in New York City, I have to take a bus, the subway, and do a little bit of walking to make it to the office, so I’m always cognizant of the people who surround me and periodically make sure the contents of my pockets haven’t gone missing along the way. With these pants, I know the two most important things — my phone and wallet — are secure, so that leaves me with plenty of room in the other pockets for whatever else I may need to carry.
Even if you’re doing longer-distance travels, you’d hate to lose important belongings at places like an airport or rest stop along your journey. These are absolutely the best pants for commuting, and I will continue to wear them for work and traveling.

City streets, airports, and other transit stations are known for hustle and bustle.

Important belongings like a wallet or passport can be zipped away in the back security pocket, while your phone will be secure in the media pocket.
