The Full Story+

Four magic ingredients make up the Flex Jeans – each with impressive technical properties that when combined create a great pair of jeans you’d be happy wearing day in and day out.

Like any normal jeans, our Flex Jeans contain cotton that not only gives them their denim appeal but also takes advantage of cotton’s fantastic natural benefits - breathability, durability and comfort. To enhance these naturally occurring technical properties, we’ve blended it with Coolmax® polyester, elastane and lyocell.

Like any polyester, Coolmax® polyester increases durability and makes the Flex Jeans much easier to care for – they’re machine washable, have an impressive dry time over regular denim jeans and they’ll come out with hardly any creases making them ideal for travel. However Coolmax® polyester goes a step further. This impressive technology makes the Flex Jeans incredibly high-wicking, dispersing moisture evenly around the fabric keeping you dry and comfortable.

On top of that, the Flex Jeans also have elastane in the blend – adding a welcome bit of stretch and excellent recovery. It stops these jeans being too restrictive and helps them to keep their shape and prevent saggy knees.

Lyocell is the key component to our Flex Jeans that complements the cotton, Coolmax® polyester and elastane to make these our most comfortable jeans yet.

Made using the pulp from wood, this sustainable material was initially created as a substitute for silk, so naturally it feels incredibly soft against the skin. It also has excellent technical properties including high breathability and moisture control. Like Coolmax® polyester, lyocell transports moisture away from the body for quicker evaporation, keeping you cool, dry and comfortable. It also has excellent durability and flexibility enhancing the properties of the other fibres.

This blend of natural and synthetic fibres reduces the weight of the jeans creating a 9oz denim that makes them incredibly light and packable compared to normal 100% cotton jeans.

Designed in a contemporary tapered leg fit and with plenty of pockets, including a hidden zipped security pocket on the rear seam, these jeans are classic Rohan ingenuity with bang up to date fabric technology. They’re also UPF 40+ Sun Protection tested and approved.

Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.

Great material, baffling pockets


I received these as a birthday present and they are really very comfy. The material is great - stretchy without looking stretchy at all. The cut is different to previous Rohan jeans and this will be particularly subjective - will fit some and not others. The slimmer leg cut works for me. However, the pockets are totally baffling. I buy Rohan products because they are brilliantly practical. But my phone fell out my pocket twice today; not only are the front pockets shallow, they seem to sort of gape open rather than be tight. I don't know how the pockets got through any sort of testing with practicality in mind. Apart from that I really like the jeans. Just can't easily or safely secure my phone or wallet!

Thank you for your review. We do work hard across the range to make our garments as practical as possible, and they are wear tested to ensure they are multi-use across a range of activities. We do try to standardise the depth of the pockets across the range but they can vary depending on cut or style. The design of our garments are reviewed throughout their time in our range, and amendments are made based on customer feedback, although this can take several seasons to show as our design team work in advance.

Perfect Jeans


I had previously tried the Advance Jeans and promptly returned them as although comfortable, the cut and fit put 10 years on me and time needs no help from Rohan! Not sure why it took me so long to look into the Flex Jeans, but by studying the positive and negative reviews on both styles of Jeans, I concluded that whilst no spring chicken, the Flex Cut should give me the comfort and practicality but with a little bit of contemporary styling. I was right.

They are a perfect fit, with enough room in the leg so that they do not look like modern shrink wrap stretch jeans, but tapered enough in the lower leg so that they look good and don't suggest that I'm headed for the bath chair!

As for comfort - they are the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn, and I am sure they will be a staple travel companion. Contrary to some reviews, I find the pocket depth fine/normal so this may have been addressed? Either way - nice one Rohan.

This is 2021 ... I (like many of the male population) carry a mobile phone in the front pocket of my jeans.

Unfortunately the pockets on these jeans are only HALF the depth of my non-Rohan jeans. I have to take the phone out of my pocket to sit down. Otherwise life gets VERY painful !

Otherwise - nice jeans. But FIX THE POCKETS

Mens flex jeans


Over the years I have bought six pairs of Classic jeans. Superb product. Went to my local Rohan store and discovered you don't do them anymore. Flex jeans and Advance jeans are not up to the same standard and I didn't buy. Why have you discontinued an excellent product?

Thank you for your review. Sorry you haven't found our Flex Jeans suitable. Here at Rohan we want to design the best products with the most innovative fabrics such a Coolmax Polyester in the Flex Jeans, designed to be high wicking when warm.

my review of flex jeans


My partner recently ordered the flex jeans thinking that they would be the same as the discontinued Classic Jeans. The fit is completely different and is quite baggy and not smart at all.

what a shame, please reinstate the classic jeans!

Thank you for your review. If your partner would like to try a style more similar to our Classic Jeans then we would recommend having a look at our Advance Jeans.

Tried them on but didn't buy.


Went to my usual Rohan outlet ( I have been a customer there for many years) to buy another pair of Classic lightweight jeans, I have had two pairs and they have been with me for two years, worn comfortably in an Australian summer but were looking a little shabby. I was told Rohan don't do them anymore and that the Flex jeans are a replacement. Tried them on, I'm afraid they aren't as comfortable for me and felt heavier not ideal summer wear. So I didn't buy. Please Rohan bring back the Classic!!

Thank you for your review. Sorry you haven’t found our Flex Jeans to be suitable. You may wish to try our Advance Jeans as these feature a classic style leg, similar to our Classic Jeans.

I was a little apprehensive buying jeans from Rohan I normally buy Levis! I was pleasantly surprised to say the least, already considering buying a second pair. I’d probably buy more if more colours were available. Excellent quality as ever and a very nice technical update on jeans superb

Look good but not as comfortable as previous version of Rohan lightweight jeans


I was disappointed when I found that Rohan no longer sold the 'Jeans Tapered', 66% cotton, 34% polyester, which I have been buying regularly for some years. However, after reading the product description, I bought a pair of Rohan Flex Lightweight jeans two months ago, expecting that they would be at least as good as the earlier version. Apart from the bizarre choice of an inconvenient button fly to replace the faultless zip of the previous design, the fabric of the Flex Lightweight jeans seems to cling and they feel far warmer than the originals. I like the quality, but they seem to be very much a cool weather item of clothing, unlike the original design which I found very comfortable to wear throughout the year.

Thank you for your review. This style features Coolmax Polyester making the Jeans high wicking for when the wearer gets warmer. The added stretch ensures further comfort and prevents the Jeans from sagging. Really appreciate your feedback and I will pass this on to our Design team.

My review of Rohan Flex jeans


I normally don’t wear jeans, but these are exceptional in nearly every way. So comfortable, good fit even ‘on trend’ as I believe the current vernacular goes.

Don’t like the button fly, as another contributor said. I’ve never had a metal zip break, heavier maybe, but not being a Daniel Craig lookalike, seeking female admiration, just an aged triker

I shall buy some more of these stretchy, luxurious jeans and have zip flies fitted.

Flex Jeans Review


Having had a couple of pairs of regular Rohan jeans in the past, i thought i'd give the Flex jeans a try. Blown away by the comfort & stretch qualities of them. Nice modern slim fit too. Also the quick drying times are second to non aswell. However, a small gripe i've noticed is Rohan are starting to cut corners on items. Just little things like not having a leather badge (or any indication they're Rohan) on the back & no velcro on the back pockets. To look at the back of the jeans, you'd think they'd come out of Lidl's bargain bins! I've noticed this about a few different items over the last couple of years. The quality is getting worse & its a shame to see as i've been a regular customer over the last few years but i'm starting to look elsewhere now for my outdoor gear now. Hope you turn things around eventually.

Dear David, Thank you for your feedback which we take very seriously. We can assure you that there is not a deliberate plan to cut corners here at Rohan, quite the opposite, we want to design and develop the very best products with the most innovative fabrics. We have a very loyal customer base who are extremely discerning about the products we produce and sell. We hope you can be reassured by our response and continue buying our great products.

These jeans are perfect in everyday. Love the feel of the fabric - so soft, great stretchiness, hidden zipped pocket and the modern cut (at last) If I was being ultra picky then a ‘Rohan’ label on the back pocket, perhaps? I ordered these yesterday, during lockdown and received today - Saturday!

Keep up the good work Rohan and thanks.

Stylish and comfortable


These are great jeans, with a stylish look and feel. The pockets are not deep enough; lack of Velcro closures a pain, and you should do them in black. And I’ve never used the yoke pocket either. But for practical comfort that looks cool they are unbeatable!

What on Earth have you done to the classic jeans?

These are only suitable for teenagers into the skinny fit style. They are truly terrible if you are expecting them to replace your worn out ‘classics’.

I don’t have huge quads and these are self-consciousness inducing, figure-hugging tight (they feel like leggings around my thighs).

There’s no way you could wear these with the fusion blazer (Rohan classic jeans, brogues, Fusion Blazer and a polo being my smart/casual work combo staples) or wear them as smart casual jeans rolling from office to meeting to pub or restaurant. And worn with brogues these jeans now look ridiculous.

Coupled with useless tight shallow pockets, no security tabs on the rear patch pockets and the terrible (shallow crotch) button fly, Rohan have killed a mainline go-to essential.

And they even include a leaflet with them stating they toyed with the idea of not messing with a classic but went ahead anyway!

These should be rolled out alongside the other jeans as an addition to the jeans line not a replacement.

They’re going straight back to the shop!

Ridiculously comfortable, regret the tapered leg


These are my 'go to' jeans mainly for reasons of comfort. Great quality and practicality. When they bring out a 'boot leg' version, I'll buy another pair. I just feel that at my age a tapered leg is better suited to the younger person. I was not aware these were a button fly when I waled out of the shop, but have now got used to them ..... once again.

Great pair of jeans


These jeans are great. They fit well (I'm normally between 32" to 34" waist. The 32" waist size of these jeans fits perfectly. The jeans look good; no bagginess in the thighs, slim fitting but not too tight. They are very comfortable, and wash well. This is my 3rd pair of Rohan jeans; the first pair bought in the sale a few years ago were too baggy, so I cut them down into shorts, and I wear them all summer. The second pair I still have - navy slim-fit, which I use for smarter occasions. My only criticism of these Flex jeans is the button fly. This was fashionable with a leading brand back in the 1980's / 1990's. Frankly, it's a nuisance. Please revert back to zip fly

Review of Flex Jeans


I love your products and have several pairs of your classic jeans. But your new flex jeans are a bit disappointing, just deserve an average rating. The fit and material are just fine, no problem there. Here is the problem: I failed to notice that these are button fly. That is a PITY if you travel, as it takes a bit of time and effort to close up. I have not seen button fly pants for decades. Bad decision. Also, I notice that the side pockets are not as deep as on the classic jeans, my IPhone 11 barely fits. The rear pockets do not have the velcro closures as on the classic jeans. These would have been ideal travel jeans if you just used the same features as on the classic jeans. I will wear them and I'm sure they will be as comfortable as the classic but I won't likely buy another pair. You should do the classic jeans with the flex material, that would be a winner.

These jeans are typical of Rohan in almost every way with one exception - the front secure inner pocket is too small for a passport. When travelling in some countries it is essential to have your passport on you at all times.
