Klim Badlands Pro Pants

Built to take a licking and keep on ticking, the Klim Badlands Pro Pants are an ADV rider’s best friend. Klim has designed the Badlands to be a second skin that protects riders from external hazards and internal discomforts.

Leather panels on the inside of the legs protect against exhaust and Gore-Tex stretch fabric in the seat ensures a dynamic fit that is comfortable for extended time in the saddle. For riders who refuse to compromise when it comes to their gear, the Badlands Pro Pants are only choice.

Excellent pants, but think twice on size.
These pants fit great, look great, have all the right protection in all the right places, and do a great job of keeping you cool with the integrated venting.

On size: I have a 34" waist with a 30" inseam. This meant that I could either go with a size 30, or a size 32, as my measurements fit within' both those sizes. Right smack in the middle of a size 30, and I expected the size 32 would be a little loose on me - I originally went with the size 30 as my measurements seemed to fit right in the middle of the sizing chart for that size. When I got the 30's and tried them on they were TIGHT in the waist, and that was with nothing but underwear on underneath. There's no way I would have been able to get them on with any layer whatsoever on underneath. I ended up exchanging for the size 32 which I fell in the bottom of the sizing chart in - perfect fit and I can layer underneath. If you can - go with the larger of any two sizes you may fit in.

Runs VERY Small Around Waist. How to get 2" inches more.
I thought I would give everyone a heads up about the Klim Badlands Pro pants fit. More specifically the waist size, and how to get 2" inches #50 mm.# more out of the waist band. Otherwise a great heavy duty Gore-Tex riding pants.
I normally wear a size 33" waist blue jean. I am 5' 8" tall and 150 lbs. I originally ordered the size 32" waist assuming the adjustable velcro sidebands would give me some adjustment. When I tried them on, they were way too small. Felt like a 31" waist. I decided on the next size up, and reluctantly went with the size 34" waist. I ended up buying the size 34" inch waist. Even though, a size 34" waist still felt tight. The elastic waist band in the back of the pants doesn't really stretch. Klim customer service told me it should loosen up over time. I rode the pants for 3 months, and the elastic band is still way too tight. After reviewing other posting online, I finally decided to take my Klim Badlands Pro pants to my local tailor. I was reluctant to cut into the Gore-Tex / Cordura fabric along the sides or legs. However, we figured out how to solve the elastic waist band problem. Before I did any alterations, I measured the length of the elasticized waist band in the back of the pants; just to keep track of before and after difference in waist size. Then we removed the three rows of stitching along the middle of the elastic waistband area. You will also need to remove the stitching through the suspenders loop. You need scissors with a very small pointy end or a leather needle nose type tool to remove the stitching. It will take you an hour to remove the three rows of stiching. Take your time. Don't want to damage the Gore-Tex fabric. Once you remove these three rows of stitching, you will see an overlapping seam on the inside of the elastic waistband area. Opens like an envelope. This will expose the elastic band. There are 2 very wide elastic bands. This explains why the waist doesn't stretch at all. Rather than removing the elastic band, we decided it would be a good idea to keep it in for support. So, we simply cut through the 2 elastic bands. We make a cut along the middle of both bands. Then my tailor placed stiches along the original area. You want to keep the fabric streched #flat#. Three rows along the elastic band. I measured the final result. I gained 2" inches #50 mm.# in the waist size by flattening the fabric and cutting throug the elastic waistband. Now it doesn't kill me to get into my pants. In the winter time, I wear lightweight base layer and my REV'IT Tornado pants liner under my Klim Badlands. So, the waist is just right. In the summer time, I can use the velcro side straps to adjust the waist.
A message to Klim design group: I am sure you've seen all the comments online over the years about the odd fit. Your pants ride too low, and are way too small around the waist. Not all your customers are 20 something year old models. When you redesign your pants, please make sure the published waist size is with the elastic band unstreached and the velcro straps adjusted #pulled# all the way in. In doing so, your customers can have a true fit. I cannot believe I let out 2" inches in the waist be removing the elastic band. From my perspective #since we all layer in winter# your should design 2" - 3" inches more into your current waist size. Riders can always make adjustments with the velcros side straps.

A Resounding Yes To Dry.
I received my Klim Badlands Pro Pants and Klim Badlands Pro Hi Vis Jacket on 7th July 2014 and have already experienced frosts at temperatures down to -3C (26.6F), That’s a wind chill factor of about -6C (21.2F) when travelling at 100Km/h (62 miles/hour) hail and sleet and have also experienced several torrential downpours. Its mid-winter here. I purchased this gear so that I could use it all year around and in all conditions. My commute is over 100Km (63 Miles) round trip and I put on about 30,000Km per year (18,640 Miles) so I needed gear that would hold up and do the job. That’s the promise of Klim…

Am I happy with this gear and was it worth the cash? Let’s start with the cost. Jacket & Pants $1,549.98 USD, Shipping $70.67 USD, Total $1,620.65 USD, Then came the exchange rate which bumped the cost up to $1,838.85 NZ, plus GST and duty, grand total of $2,114.68 NZ . You are paying for the excellent quality and the name. Am I happy with it? Let’s just say that I like it but it is a lot of money.

The Klim Badlands Pro Pants (Size 36) looks cool. (A photo with my measurements has been supplied with this review). I can put two layers of clothing on in the form of thermals: this makes the fit snug around my waist. After reading all of the reviews I thought that the pants would be bigger on me, this is not the case. (Thanks to “Rafael Nieves” from RevZilla Customer Service for pointing me in the right direction in regards to sizing). I need to lose some weight from around my middle:-)) If you are any bigger than what my measurements in the photo show then I would recommend getting the next size up.

I purchased the Klim Badlands Pro Pants because I was sick of getting a wet crutch. The big question is do they keep me dry and warm? The answer is a resounding yes to dry, I couldn’t be happier with them on that score. As far as warm goes, the Gore-tex® 3-layer pro shell transmits the cold and you do feel it, even the cold rain. I get cold spots at the base of the ventilation zips and around the crutch area even with two layers of thermals on. At first I thought that the pants maybe leaking, this was not the case. Again after reading the reviews I would have thought that the pants would have been a little warmer.

In conclusion, would I recommend them? When I look at the price that I paid then it’s hard to say yes. I think that you could buy gear that performs the same without the large cost. The question is will the Klim gear last the distance that would justify the additional cost? Only time will tell.

One annoyance ruins the entire experience.
These pants are amazing in almost every way. The waterproofing is amazing, they aren't too tight, they have excellent slide and heat protection. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend them. "Why?" you ask. The knee armor is completely freaking useless and rage inducing! Unless you buy a pair that is way too short for you, the knee armor will _always_ be down around your shins, off to the outside of your leg, or both! It's infuriating. Every time I want to ride I have to turn these inside out, fuss with the convoluted velcro system, then surely after a half hour on the bike the armor will have dropped down again.

Useless armor retention system ruins an otherwise _amazing_ pair of pants.

durrable
Styling and fit are variables of importance here. Remember that this is cut loose like dirt bike pants. if you are wanting European cut road pants then this is not for you.

That being said I am really impressed with them. The styling and fit is appropriate for the market they are targeting, not quite my flavor as it is just a little more dirt-bikey than I would like. That being said they are extremely understated for something in this category, at least the black ones are. They are understated enough that I where them all the time which includes commuting, traveling, and trail riding. I work in a normal office building and they don't offend the senses when I come in. most people don't notice. Some may say there are not many features on them but keep in mind the materials and processes are also a feature. What they have done they have done with an eye toward durability and repeatable use.

They seem to be very durable and not just a small Armacore patch on the knee for example, a large area covering the knee and outside of the lower leg and wrapping around the bottom et cettera, even running up the inside for several inches. So a slight peppering of overkill, this is always good. They are also as a result a bit more crinkly feeling than some (this is likely the Gortex treatment) but once they are on you will not notice this so pay it no mind. One think you will notice is that they are fairly heavy, they don't feel like they are so heavy they are trying to fall off when you stand up but I would guess that they are twice the weight of RevIt Defender GTX pants. That comes with durable repeatable protection, I have no doubt that they are far more than twice as durable particularly in where areas.

Want feature? how about reasonable sized pockets on both sides! higher end pants generally have a missing pocket syndrome, some have none at all and some just one little impractical pocket to remind you what you are missing. While these pants don't qualify as cargo pants they do have two practically useful pockets. be careful what you put in them as you may then fall on it.

Being fully waterproof without a liner you might think that they would be to hot but so far they breath like you would expect from Gortex. You can open the vents as far or little as much as you like and once you do the venting is wonderful. I have not ridden in monsoons but moderately heavy rains and the resulting sweltering high humidity that comes after these rains. They where perfectly dry in the rain and reasonably cool in the steamy heat.

The way they do the armor takes a little getting used to, to get it in position and have it stay. The armor is in a pocket in the permanent mesh liner which floats inside the shell which can twist a little the first time you put it on and you can end up with the armor on the side of your knee. it is fairly easy to reposition and will stay there after that once you get everything sorted out, at least until the first hit that is. When you get a little more used to this it is quick and easy to get the pants on and end up with the armor in an acceptable position. The armor pockets in the knees are adjustable up and down and left and right by the typical extra Velcro patches in the pocket. Remember that is in the floating mesh liner under the shell. Thigh armor pockets are simple drop in's and are not position adjustable.

I am not a great fan of d3o but it works and when you are getting brave with your motorcycling antics you can comfortably fit your knee/shin pads (mine are Icon Field something or other.) on under the existing armor without removing it. Sas-tech knee and hip armor can fit in the pockets but with the Sas-tech it is a more formed piece and now the positioning is more important, though I think it is better armor than the d3o stuff. I don't' think the armor (the d3o stuff) moving around a little bit will be a great big deal as the d3o stuff is essentially a flat piece with pleats in it to allow it to flex around a knee when bent. it is for the most part consistently thick (or thin as you view the world) so if it moves around an inch or two it probably makes little difference. Where as Sas-tech or BMW NP armor has formed cups to fit the joint in a specific place. You wouldn't want that to be an inch left or right at the time of impact.

So to sum up the armor section I don't particularly like the 3do armor, but as they are using 3do I don't think the armor shifting around a bit is particularly detrimental. You can easily fit body fitting armor underneath the stuff without removing the 3do. Maybe this is the area where Klim didn't build in overkill, but if you look at it like a product from an off road riding company (which it is) where they expect you to have armor on underneath the pants (most of there others) then the addition of another layer of floppy orange foam to 'protect the armor protecting the knee' maybe is a kind of overkill.

This does make them work quite well as over pants. I don't know that they would work as over pants for denim jeans or the like but they work well for BDU's and North Face Paramount M pants that I get away with wearing at the office.

So for some bad, there always is some. but these fall into more of personal nit-picking and it is hard if not impossible for any company to account for everyone's tastes as they are so different from person to person.

I for one like to have the leg cuff zippers be about seven hundred feet long. as long as they can get them before running into the back of the knee. Some people like them shorter. Klim has made these moderate I would say. Again for my personal preference a moderate length is a missed opportunity make it properly (properly being my way of course.) The stretch panel on the back could be bigger, thus allowing for more stretching to get over my lazy but. The side synches could be longer to more firmly keep my growing belle above the waist line. While you are at it some simple padding across the seat would not go amiss either. You can ear opposing preferences whispering in the back ground though, some don't like too much materiel on synching up stuff, it flops around and annoys them. Hint Klim make it from nylon webbing with a loose end, that way the skinny healthy people who don't like floppy ends can just cut it off. So opinions are like er,.. well motorcycle pants, if you don't have any you will be getting some shortly.

waterproof for sure
i just got back from a rainy 4-day ride through the mountains of western and SW VA. my legs and feet and head were the only comfortable parts of me, thanks to my klim badlands pants, nolan N-104 helmet and aerostich combat-lite boots.

i had nothing underneath but moto-skivvies shorts and went through a lot of cold rain. none got up into my legs from below or down from above or in from outside, and i did NOT feel any coldness from convection, which really surprised me given that my bare skin was against the pants.

the knee armor stayed in the right place all the time and although there's no getting around the clown-pants styling, i wasn't wearing these to impress the ladies, but for functionality.

the only thing i didn't get to test was the venting. there was no hot, humid weather on this trip, but i can say for sure that with the front and rear vents open on the one day it didn't rain, i did NOT feel any air flow. i'm riding a naked airhead and in the upright position, the pants lay flat against my leg, leaving no open space for air to flow. so i am not holding out a lot of hope that these will be "cool" particularly.

the main thing is protection and dryness, and these pants did the job i asked of them.

These pants have a strange cut
With much excitement I threw down $699 for Badlands Pro pants to match the Badlands jacket - which was a PERFECT fit. The pants are baggy in the seat and very narrow in the waist. I could feel the top most edge of the fabric on the sides of my hips and I was uncomfortable almost at once. There is not much room for adjustment either. Too tight.

If I go UP a size the already baggy seat and legs will be an issue - my leather track pants fit perfect and the protective pads stay close to the body parts they are supposed to cover - knees, hips, etc. And the pants are baggy when I'm seated on the bike - even more so when standing.

I have an athletic 33 inch waist and I like the loose fit of my 34 inch jeans.
I'll have to wear size 36 inch Badlands pants to go with my medium jacket and STILL have to diet all winter to make things comfortable. Forget long underware bottoms?

The thought crossed my mind that I'm just fat, but the rest of my clothes fit correctly. The waist on these pants needs a little extra room and more adjustment.

Try a pair and you'll see the extra room in the thigh and seat and NO ROOM in the waist - A far cry from the perfect fit and trim cut in the Badlands jacket, Oh well.

Great investment
Great investment and with out a doubt the best motorcycle protective gear I have ever purchased so far. They are comfortable and really full watertight, not only waterproof.
One thing do is strange: they are very slippery on the seat, still after 2000k. They could have used a different seat -butt material. But on the other hand the build and quality are near perfect and the Gore Pro is very good. I was also surprised that there were no shoulder straps in the delivery.
Very confidence inspiring motor wear with the option of venting for all weather, even riding I 35 degrees c. When the vents are open, airflow is great. It's been hot and humid, and I've tested this thoroughly. I Also Purchased the Jacket. Ride on KLIM!

Excellent pant, great air flow and superb waterproofing
These pants are great. If you're on the fence about spending the money on them, I say go for it. They are excellent at keeping you dry during large downpours (I have experienced this 3 times thus far) however they also have great air flow when the venting is unzipped. I did a ride out to Ocotillo Wells in 100+ degree weather and while hot, the pants were not unbearable to wear.

You feel like a tank in them, as well. Their protection feels solid and the reflective piping is a nice touch. The reason for a knock on the 'comfort' rating is due to the stitching irritating my right knee where the protection pads are. I only experience this when using the pants over shorts, otherwise it goes unnoticed. I should take the time to investigate rather than complain, but you know how that goes.

Klim does it again!

Quality, waterproof, protection
Fit is good. They are enduro style so they have plenty of room in the legs. I have Alpinestars Toucans and there is plenty of room for them. Decent ventilation. I like the side pockets for odds and ends. The fit keeps the hip and knee armor close to the body. They are quite waterproof and are comfortable to wear.

Getting into off road riding on my GS, and they are tough pants, very waterproof. Also great with pants under them for riding in the winter, even in sub zero temps they do a great job keeping you from freezing. Vents work great during the summer to keep you cool also.

Reviews, and had purchased the jacket and loved it.

After having a hi side at about 60Kph off road I was very impressed with the level of protection the armor on the badlands jacket gave me. Have been further impressed with the level of cooling on such a heavy jacket and decided to get the pants also.
Great piece of gear, pretty much what I always wanted.

I need pants for my annual adventure rides which usually involve hot, cold but most importantly wet conditions. Last 2 rides were the Himalayas and Sri Lanka and we have always gotten caught in a downpour or worse. There isn't enough time to pull out a raincoat so what I really need is a good Gore-Tex shell with good venting to deal with the heat as well. I believe these pants suit my needs.

Was searching for a new jacket and pants combo that could serve as year round kit. I also did NOT want to buy gear with those pesky "zip in" waterproof liners. After much research and trying on, the Klim gear was the logical choice given their outstanding customer service and warranty reputation.

My son has these pants and I have been impressed with them.

Match the jacket & Rukka Armas were not a good fit

Bought the Badlands Pro Jacket last year and have been very happy with it. Been waiting to save up for the pants and to try to catch a deal on them. Finally, and just in time for the trip up to Overland Expo East. Looking forward to staying warm and dry in the new pants.

Like the jacket it has all of the features I'm looking for, Gortex outer shell, D30 armour, lots of venting, and its good for 4 seasons, what more could a bloke ask for?

I live is Southeast Alaska on Prince of Wales Island. It rains from 150 to 200 inches a year. Temps range from subzero to 80'. I need flexable, rugged protection. Badlands seem to fit the bill.
Jim H on Sep 2, 2014
I got these for some off road stuff in North Carolina. and wow. They were and are great. fit just right and thru 2 days of rain.I was definitely dry and protected. I wear them some days riding street. especially if it looks like rain. always off road. great protection.
Dave G on Aug 9, 2014
Because I already have the Badland Pro Jacket, and It's just the best jacket I ever had! So, let's use the full package!

Want waterproof pants without having to stop and put on liner (BMW) or rain over-pants. Like the ventilation and updated armor.
Keilwerth on May 29, 2016
Looks like the best bet is to go one size up? I'm a 38x30 currently. Guessing going to the 40 inch version is the right call and add some suspenders as I typically slim down to 36 in the spring and summer. Appreciate the feedback.
Greg B on Feb 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I went with my jeans size and they fit perfectly. But I'm quite slim and I like my stuff to feel a little snug. Really dislike a lot of wind flapping the stuff around. Or the possibility of something loose snagging on things. Also keeps the armour positioned better. IMHO
Can you help by explaining What is the :over the boot in seam" and the "in the boot in seam"?
Please include a few diagrams.
What is the difference between the two?
Kind regards, Ewan
A shopper on Apr 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Simply put, the "over the boot inseam" is an inseam measurement with an adventure boot on. The "in the boot inseam" is an inseam measurement without a boot.

An inseam measurement, as the size chart diagram shows, is from your crotch to the floor. One with a boot, one without.
DO THE KNEE PADS ADJUST? uP OR DOWN?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The knee pads are held in pockets that are sewn into the none removable liner. These pockets are sized perfectly for the knee pads so they don't acually move in the pocket itself, but because they are part of the liner, and the liner is not skin tight, the liner itself moves. So, yes you can move the knee pads up and down so to speak because the liner can move. Once you are seated on your bike, you can move the knee pad into a comfortable position over your knee with your hand from the exterior of the pant. In my experience, the pads don't move around while on the bike, but understand during a fall, the knee pads could move around slightly, unlike true leathers which are skin tight. That being said, I am very satisfied with these pants and jacket.
Are the badlands pants meant as over pants (over jeans, etc) or just to be worn with underwear or maybe a thin pair of smart wool long johns?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: IMO these are stand-alone moto pants for adventure riding and not really a "shell" that would carry some light armor and/or rain protection. I'd look at something much lighter and cheaper if you just want to cover up safely over your everyday wear clothes. When I ride in hot weather with these pants (and the jacket) I wear pedal bike shorts and a technical (wicking) t-shirt. Dumped the moto twice in the desert in New Mexico and this gear offers awesome protection. When it gets cold you just start zipping up vents. When it gets really cold out you can add some layers (I have the Klim Inferno pants and jacket and when it gets really cold I break out the gerbings heated gear which fits just fine under this awesome piece of kit.
Where can I find the suspenders that are available for these pants? Anyone use them? Worth adding or not? Tried on a pair 36" pants and they will not allow me to fit my heated gear too. 38" would be too big for me! HELP
Bruce C on Feb 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I ordered the suspenders (item 797925) from Revzilla.

The suspenders are excellent and a big feature of the pants in my opinion. They are very comfortable and keep the pants exactly where I want them regardless of how much I move. This also allows more of a loose fit around the waist for comfort, as well as room for heated gear, etc. I did add a sternum strap from an old back pack I no longer use to prevent the suspenders from sliding off my shoulders while riding. I think this is somewhat of an individual thing and most riders probably don't have an issue with the suspenders sliding off the shoulders.
Does the lighter grey panels show dirt or stain? I have old pair of light grey Klim Dakar pants that stained from dirt and road grime.
Roger Lee G on Apr 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I've used them everyday for as long as a month. As expected, they get dirty. The grey strips on the side show dirt least of all. The black shows it more.
But at the end of the trip, after going thru the wash, they come out clean....neither black nor grey showing stains. I think you'll like them.
I am 6'3", 225 lbs, 38" waist and 35' inseam....not really sure to go with the size 36 or the 38 size after looking at the size chart.....any recommendations ?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm usually a 34 and I ordered the next size up, 36" waist and I'm glad I did. Prior to ordering my research indicated that these run on the small side, I have a 32" inseam, 6'0" and 185#. Great riding pant for long days on the bike. Not a good commuter pant. definitely will keep you dry.
Can anybody speak to the black color and how it feels in the bright sun? I'm pretty warm bodied so I'm concerned about heating up in the black/hi-viz. Look forward hearing your feedback.
A shopper on Dec 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: That was a concern of mine as well and the reason I was considering the grey pants. My problem was after seeing the jacket in grey, I personally didn't care for the way it looked. I wore my black/high vis through the Nevada desert on I-50 in late Aug. With the vents open and at 80mph on my 1200GS in 115F heat, I was warm but not uncomfortable. Now I wasn't being physically active on the bike, just sitting, but it was so hot you could see the air. Not mirage, as there was no humidity, the air. My bike also has an Aeroflow windshield the stops way more wind than any other design. I also did 50 miles of tight twisty gravel roads in the Okanagan Valley a few days later carrying a passenger on a 78F day and again with all the vents open I was comfortable. I did go through 2 liters of water going through the desert. The water bladder in the jacket was a bit of a life saver. It makes the jacket bulky and heavy but I thought it was worth the trade off. It seems that as long as you have some airflow the vents and the goretex did a good enough job for what I was doing. This has been the best gear I've ever owned. Hope this answers your question.

I am a 38 inch waste in Dress pants and 29.5 inseam. Does the 38 inch size really adjust from 37 to 41 inches? I certainly don't mind getting suspenders if I need to. I would like a little room to breath.
A shopper on Feb 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does.
I really want to buy a pair of these pants and the matching jacket as they have the features I am looking for, Goretex, new generation body armour, excellent venting and they are suitable for all year round adventure riding, but I am worried about fit as my waist is 102cm and my inseam to the ground is 76cm, any suggestions or alternatives with similar features?

BEST ANSWER: I'm not too familiar with metric measurements but I too had a number of concerns with these products. I purchased the jacket about two years ago. I found it fit very well and the size was very close to my normal body measurements. I used the jacket in the Northwest riding in hard rain, some snow and in 105 degree heat. It performed great, I couldn't be happier. About 6 months ago I saved my pennies and purchased the pants. I did have a fit issue with the pants. My waist is 33 to 34 and I have a 32 inseam. I first ordered the regular length and found I wasn't satisfied with the length. I sent them back and got the extra long--life is now good. I just returned last week from riding the Utah Backcountry Route and the pants and jacket worked extremely well. Temperatures were well above 100 degrees daily and both products had very good ventilation. I'm very pleased with these products.
