(April 28, 2014) – Sometimes it can be hard to find jeans that fit just right—but it can be even more challenging for athletes.

That’s why designers in Nevada created Barbell Apparel—a line of denim designed with athletes in mind.

The jeans promise to fit comfortably over muscular legs by accommodating your quads and backside without forcing you to wear larger sizes. The pants also have just the right amount of “stretch.”

The idea seems to be catching on. The company hit its $15,000 Kickstarter goal—and has raised more than $440,000 so far.
