George writes: "The first thing to note about them is that they don't look any different to a normal pair of jeans, at first glance, anyway. Just below the knees there are two more seams than usual, there's an extra panel on the crotch, and on the waistband, an additional loop. The Omnias achieve the freedom of movement vital for riding through a 98% denim and 2% elastane fabric mix, which helps them keep their shape well like non-cycling jeans, but also have some stretch that lets them move comfortably with the pedal stroke, with little resistance. More breathable: my blending cotton with other materials such as polyester, biker chinos allowed your body to breathe and stay fresh

Unlike the Endura Hummvee II cycling trousers, these waterproof and windproof cycling trousers pull on over your existing clothing, so they are a great option to have stowed away in your commuting luggage should the weather take a turn for the worse while on the bike or at work.I'm pretty much the target audience for this. I cycle nine miles each way nearly every work day, to a business casual office, and don't want to faff around changing trousers when I get to work. Good trousers for this are the Holy Grail of bikewear. It’s easy to get hot when you’re cycling. Since you’ll usually be wearing a waterproof top as well as your waterproof cycling trousers, that means that you can easily get sweaty, particularly if it’s warm and humid.

Pearl Izumi's Rove trousers are stretchy, comfortable and thoroughly unrestrictive in the saddle. They look smart and have some excellent hidden reflective elements, too. But despite some claimed weatherproofing, they're a bit lightweight for year-round riding. Rather unusually, they are designed for both walking and cycling, rather than favouring cycling with just a nod to the odd bit of wandering about town on foot. The outsole is grippy rubber, with a metal shank for extra rigidity, and the fairly flat sole has a small raised heel, making it much more akin to a normal everyday shoe than a cycling-specific design. Bulletproof they may not be, but they are rain proof. Which is probably (hopefully) more useful to you, depending on your lifestyle. These aren't the most waterproof option that money can buy, but the Hummvee range is notoriously durable and these trousers are no different - there are a lot of reasons that these multi-use cycling trousers could be all you need. Looks-wise, they have the appearance of – and sit like – a classic pair of chinos, but to wear they feel totally different, much lighter and more comfortable with none of the bulk, plus they come with an added element of stretch to make them more suited to physical activity.

Constructed using Ripstop fabric for durability, these cycling trousers are a great option for anyone looking for water protection across a host of different terrains. Now I doubt if I’m ever going to wear these chinos to go and do a century. Then again with a pair of Ground Effect Underdogs underneath… Anyhow, I digress. No they’re not going to be the trousers to wear for long rides, but the next time I’m spending the day in London going to various meetings, and getting to them on a Boris Bike, I’ll certainly be wearing these chinos. The four-way stretchy fabric – which consists of 70% organic cotton, eco fans – is extremely accommodating, although the quite narrow, straight legs are bound to cling to most cyclists' thighs. The main downside to this, as you'll spot in the pictures, is that you get a touch of the old VPLs if you're wearing padded shorts underneath.

But these aren’t just practical waterproof jeans. These are beautiful jeans. Even those with the most discerning of eyes wouldn’t label them as ‘cycling jeans’ based on their appearance. The All-Weather slim fit denim jeans from DUER are a practical take on a classic wardrobe staple. Coming in a choice of two colours your outfit doesn’t have to be compromised due to your choice of transport into work. Capable of shrugging off mud and rain, these water-resistant trousers come with an environmentally friendly PFC-Free durable water repellent (DWR) finish, although that will need re-spraying from time to time with one of the best waterproof treatments. These jeans also benefit from being both water and windproof thanks to the specialist membrane used, you’ll be covered no matter what and kept both dry and warm while riding to work.

I opted for the navy option (largely because I love blue everything), but the SPOKE Bulletproof chinos also come in slate (the colour, not the stone), olive (again, colour not food) and tobacco (once more, colour not stuff to smoke/chew). Price Designed for general outdoor activities, Rapha's Men's Explore Pants don't aim to be fit for just cycling. They're made from a stretchy nylon fabric which gives excellent freedom of movement. The lightweight material is abrasion resistant and DWR treated too so it's water repellent. Plus, the shorter leg length and ankle adjustment means you can keep them away from muddy shoes and filthy chains. As they're not cycling-specific there's not any reinforcement to high-wear areas like the crotch so they won't stand up to regular riding as well as other more dedicated trousers. All of the above features and fabric have been tailored into a chino that is cut to a very personal level. With Spoke trousers, you can choose your individual waist and inseam, and then select one of three 'builds' to ensure your trousers are as close to your leg profile as possible. The result, is that the cut of the Bulletproof Chinos is superb; making them even more comfortable to wear. If you want a trouser that pulls on over the top of shoes, these aren't the best option; they have an interior gaiter that gets in the way. The gaiter has benefits though; the Nightvisions are good at keeping the cold air out on wintery days. The best waterproof bicycle commuter pants / trousers will generally have a fairly relaxed fit and will prioritise keeping the water out. While you might find some casual fit options that can be worn on and off the bike, many are a pull-over design that you can wear over other trousers or shorts and remove after your ride.You'll also find that many are unisex. For many women, this might pose fit issues.

But there are plenty of situations where you want to ride for longer but not have to faff about changing clothes. Meeting friends at a country pub, say, or a longer ride to the office on a Spring day. That's where dual-purpose clothing comes in: you can ride bike comfortably while wearing it, and you'll still be comfortable at work, the pub or even at a nice restaurant.Rapha's Technical Trousers really are a do-it-all piece of kit, ideal for the urban rider. Rapha describes these as 'a pair of hard-wearing trousers for riding around town, commuting and travelling', and calls the fit 'slim', but I'd say they're closer to the relaxed end of the slim spectrum, which makes for more comfortable riding. They're a progression from Rapha's (now defunct) Randonnee trousers, and feature the same style waist, cut higher than a standard pair of trousers so that there's no unsightly gap when you're leaning forward on the bike.
