We're AirFlex Labs. We design and create the world's most comfortable products for the modern professional. After 3 years of delivering the most comfortable office pants to the world, we are back to introduce a new breed in technical work wear.

 Meet the Airflex Tech Pants. The best alternative to heavy work denim, we combine performance synthetic fibers with Japanese 10oz pima cotton. Extra breathable. Maximum Stretch. Gel padded waistband. The Airflex Tech pants bridge the gap between heavy sweaty work denim, and breathable stretchy yoga pants. Get the best of both worlds with Airflex. 

The Airflex Tech collection is Inspired by photographers. Shooting long hours in unexpected conditions; comfort and movement is key. We designed a pair of technical pants which bridge the gap between durability and performance. Built to outlast any heavy duty work pants, while offering the feel and comfort of performance active pants. Wether you plan to shoot photos on a hike, or have a full day at the office: You will be comfortable and look professional. 

The secret sauce to our comfort comes from the technical fabric blend we use to create the AirFlex Tech pants. The fibers combines performance textile polyamide with tencel to give a extra comfortable four way stretch, while keeping a a solid feel to keep the pants looking crisp enough to wear to the boardroom. 

Traditional Work Denim as a critical flaw: they weight over 12 oz. The result is a pair of pants which trap heat causing sweat, do not allow comfortable movement, and inherently difficult to wear into the field or office for long periods of time. We decided to improve that. Starting with the basics, we researched and developed our modern F3 Technical Fabric, which provides extra breathability with durable stretch fibers. The result is a pair of pants which can be worn days in a row without sacrificing hygiene or comfort.

 Work related stress and posture is the number 1 cause of chronic back pain. Whether sitting in a chair for 5 hours a day, or being on the move- your back takes the most crucial aftermath. This coupled with a restrictive fabric result in not only back pain, but stress to the thighs and knees. We figured wearing basketball short or sweatpants could fix this problem- but they just didn't look that great. 

Our patent pending AirFlex Waistband™ strategically placed a semi liquid gel padding on the lower back and hips- the area where chronic back typically starts. The padding gives the extra support to ease stress especially when sitting for long period of time. With shock absorbing capabilities, the AirFlex Waistband™ is a game changer for people on the move. 

Our unique blend of polyamide, tencel and  pima cotton allows an amazing cooling effect is humid climates, while keeping you warm in the cooler months. Our blend and weave of polyamide and cotton allow the Airflex pants to resist moisture extremely well. Without using any hazardous sprays (Teflon Fluoropolymer), these pants will wick away small amounts of water (so spilling your water bottle won't ruin your morning). The high elasticity allows a durable stretch which keeping a breathable shell for unexpected climates.

Lightweight at only 10 ounces, we composed these pants of modern fibers which are ideal to rock on a long travel journey. The tencel and polyamide base allow the pants to resist wrinkles, and perfect to pack into a backpack and re-wear with ease.

Combining breathable tencel with lightweight polyamide, the Airflex Tech pants feature durable stretch with 30% increased air-flow. The result is an incredibly versatile pair of pants which feel like performance gym pants, which boasting the benefits of everyday work denim.

With mobile phones getting larger with each release, it's vital to have a large and secure space to store that big phone. Our invisible tech pocket does just that. Extra spacious 8 inch hidden side pocket allows you to stash your phone, passport, cash, and just about anything that you need zipped away on your commute

Our Modern Straight fit is our take on the classic Straight leg cut inspired by Levi's 501. With a straight fit from the hip to the thigh, and slightly tapered at the hem, the design is created to feel comfortable even if you have larger or more athletic legs than average. 

Not your average skinny jeans- Our tapered slim combines the sleek look of fitted pants, with added space is stress areas.We felt more space at the hips would allow a further range of movement than typical skinny cut pants or denim. We think of these as Slim pants made for performance.  

AirFlex Labs is a group of creatives who thrive on useful innovation. We define our company as a research and development firm, not a brand. The initial idea for AirFlex was sparked on a long flight by our technical engineer Rene, who had been sitting for nearly 6 hours on a flight from California to New York. Looking around and observing all these people using neck pillows, he thought why isn't there a pillow for pants? Partnering with young and talented design Brent Brooks, the team set there eyes on creating the art of comfort. Bringing over experience from technical designing at Prat Institute, Brent works closely to perfect not only the fit, but the fabrics of the products. Based in Queens NY, AirFlex Labs has goals to push fashion technology and provide innovative fabric to larger clothing brands who typically overlook sustainable and functional materials.

Risks and challenges

Having a trusted supplier of textiles and a sound production team is the key to our supply chain management. Our team is very confident in our suppliers, having proven to produce high quality samples in a fairly quick turn around time, will deliver our pants in the standard we expect. We've developed relationships with partners in Turkey, China and New York whom have all contributed to the creating of our initial samples, and are all equally excited to bring the AirFlex v3.0 pants to life. We have added 2 extra weeks to the delivery timeline in the case of any courier of machine hold ups, but we expect to have an on time delivery.

If for any reason you pants do not fit, are defective, or you feel unsatisfied in anyway, we will gladly exchange your pants for a new pair within 60 days of delivery. All shipping will be handled by AirFlex Labs.
