VEAR, the revolutionary stylish and eco-friendly bicycle commuter rain pants, today launched its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

Vear pants are also ideal for the millions of commuters who walk or to work daily and often have to navigate their way through rain and snow while keeping suit pants, socks and shoes dry.
“Rain is the number one reason people cycle less. We saw a need for high-performance rain pants with contemporary stylish design for cyclists and walkers who need to stay dry and comfortable during their commutes,” said VEAR co-founder Valentin Nicoara. “In the biggest cities in the world, more and more people are biking and walking to work. It’s time for commuters to have a stylish, high-performance pant that becomes a key part of their professional wardrobe on snowy, rainy, damp and cool days.”
VEAR pants can also be used for outdoor activities such as golfing, hiking, motorcycling and any outdoor activity that involves rain.
VEAR pants are made with special reflective features that remain black and discreet during the day, but provide 360° visibility at night. The pants are lightweight and can be quickly folded and stored in their own back pocket and attached to a bike seat.
The creators of VEAR live, work and commute in Denmark, a country that’s famous for its eco-friendly biking culture, but it’s also infamous for its rainy climate. This is what inspired Nicoară to create VEAR Rain Pants.
“We have created rain pants that are stylish, comfortable and practical,” added Nicoara. “Rain pants that are easy to get in and out of and lightweight, compact and easy to carry, just in case an unexpected rain shower comes along.”
One of the key features of VEAR rain pants is they are designed so bikers and walkers can easily get them on and off in seconds without removing their shoes. A convenient detail for busy urban commuters.

The story of the product:
How was this product born?
“I moved to Denmark and encountered bad weather (wind and rain), so I had to buy a pair of rain pants, I don’t usually use rain pants. I bought a pair and found that they are hard to use: hard to put on, hard to take off. If your shoes are dirty then you must take the shoes off first before taking off the pants. It is very uncomfortable and can be a real hassle.
I looked up a product that would solve this problem but couldn’t find anything on the market so I made my own – Now I always wear it!
People saw it and asked me where I have it from, so this is why we’re on Kickstarter… “ said Valentin.
