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. The Gore-Tex 3-Layer Pro Shell is 100% waterproof and breathable and, with 4 zippered vents, the Badlands Pro allows you to ride in varying weather conditions without having to change pants or pull out rain gear.

The Badlands Pro Pants are fully equipped with D3O armor in the knees and hips, with cordura and Armacor panels in the high impact areas to guard against abrasion. 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.


  • Gore-Tex 3-layer Pro Shell
  • High-mobility active fit patterning for unmatched comfort
  • D3O CE-rated integrated hip and knee protection
  • Highly abrasion-resistant Armacor panels in key impact and wear areas
  • 2 external pockets (2 mid-thigh cargo)
  • 4 max flow ventilation ports (2 mid-thigh intakes, 2 rear leg exhausts)
  • High-back elastic waist
  • Jacket-to-pant zipper integration system
  • High-wear cordura panels in abuse zones (leg cuffs, internal knee and lower leg)
  • Gore-Tex stretch panel in seat
  • Side waist adjustment straps
  • Mesh comfort liner
  • Industrial-grade 3M Scotchlite reflective panels and trim
  • Italian full-grain leather inner knee/lower leg exterior
  • Adjustable boot cuff with zippered expansion panel and snap closures
  • Rubber coated buttons
  • YKK zippers throughout, water resistant urethane coated in exposed areas


We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements.  Klim sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

Klim Badlands Pro Pants 4.5 5 73 73
Good but not great Tired of zip in/zip out liners and sub par waterproof gore knock off materials I finally ponied up and purchased the Kilm Badlands Pro pants. I ordered both the closeout, and the 2015 revised Badlands pant so I could evaluate side by side. I ended up choosing the older style closeout over the revised 2015 version, because I found with the knee armor removed, there was still virtually NO room for knee braces, and the pant leg cuffs barely fit over my Tech 7 boots. Maybe most adventure riders don't wear knee braces, MX boots or put them selves in the places where a drop on a 450lb bike might pin them beneath it, or poorly timed a dab or caught rock might tweak a knee. For my riding style, I almost always ride with knee braces, especially on back country rides on my V-twin Adventure. The older style pant design took this use into consideration, providing plenty of room for braces and MX boots. My only gripe about these is the Klim logos that are screen printed on the reflective inserts have worn off and the pants look 10 years old . After washing and drying, strictly following the care instructions for GoreTex DWR materials on the Klim website, the printed Klim Logos wore off- well 1/2 way off. This happened after (1) wash & dry cycle after wearing the pants on a ten day ride. Not happy. See photos. **Notes on the 2015 Bandlands Pant: For my needs, Klim missed the mark on the redesign for the intended purpose. While the new fit in the waist & seat, and some of the new material features are nice, the pant legs are too narrow, and the cuff openings are too small for MX type boots. Disappointing. Klim must have determined that the majority of badlands pant purchasers don't ride off road and redesigned the pant for more road oriented user, or they have lost the connection to the core market (time will tell). If you are a forest service road or street oriented adventure rider, who'll never wear knee braces or mx boots the new style Badlands pants are well suited to meet those needs. At $650 the Badlands Pant should have more versatility. My recommendation to Klim would be to offer the Badlands Pant in an optional "Enduro" fit based on the previous design for riders who like to armor up, and wear MX boots. I don't know if the higher priced Adventure Rally pant has a more generous fit, but at $900 its out of my range. November 23, 2015
Heavy Duty Pants These pants are very well made. I never spent anywhere close to how much I paid for these . I road ride quite a bit and I always wanted a very good pair of pants incase I go down. They are pretty heavy though, but full of protection. They will last for a very long time. Once they breaks in, they should be a lot better. I would recommend buying them. July 23, 2015
I would recomend So far very nice, Have not ridden in extreme hot or cold since I got them in may will wait for those conditions to give a full review June 29, 2015
Good fit Solid pants. I've been riding in the Seattle(30-45 degrees) winter with nothing more than a pair of thermals underneath and they've been very comfortable. Adjustable straps on the waistband are nice too for the few times I've worn pants underneath. Let's see what the warmer weather brings with venting ability... March 30, 2015
A great piece of gear what I always wanted I bought this product because I was very impressed with the jacket overall but especially with the protection it gave me during a moderate off at about 60kph in some mud. The protection this new armor gives is amazing. It is a bit warm in the desert but the ventilation works very well. Being waterproof with out needing to use inserts is a Godsend especially when riding in the middle of nowhere in Australia with weather conditions changing all the time. The fabric is very tough and quality overall is great as is the fit and location of the knee armor. It is a bit expensive and it is not an overall design like Dry Rider that allows you wear any pants underneath as it is a bit snug, so tights it is along with jibes from you mates but is it is absolutely worth it. February 5, 2015
Well made, expensive, unflattering I bought these based on the quality of the matching jacket after trying the Rukka Armas and finding them too snug in the upper leg and a bit too hot for my average riding temps. These pants are well made. They are waterproof. They are tough. They have massive vents. All good stuff. Not everything is awesome though. Problem one: I have a 34" waist. The waist fits perfectly. The rest of the pant is entirely too baggy. So much so that I am not sure the knee armor will be over my knee if I need it. So, while it comes with great D30 armor... it's in the closet. I have a pair of Bohn adventure pants I wear under them - so I don't use the armor that came with these. They are waterproof abrasion protection with good venting for me. Problem two: I'm not a super fashion conscious guy but these pants look like they went out of the way to make them unattractive. They look like $50 snowmobile pants from Walmart. I honestly would have sent them back if there was another pant offering the level of venting and protection from the elements these do. If Klim could get the cut of the Rukka with just enough room to add some cold gear layer(s) underneath and keep rest the features... these would be all win. So, summary: Quality and function are spot on. Fit and style are not to my liking but until something better comes along I'll take the function over the form. I paid too much for what I got. January 12, 2015
High Quality Pants Yes, they are expensive. No question about that. It took me a while to get over the cost, but the pants are expensive because of the materials and armor system. Fist thing I noticed about the pants is that they are heavy. There is good adjustability in them as well. I often wear shorts under my riding pants in the summer, so I bought a pair that expand beyond my size. The pants also have very good air flow with side openings, front and rear. So far I have had no problems with them and have been comfortable over a very wide range of temperature. I hope I never need to use the armor system, but it is nice to know it is there. Bottom line, you have to put out the green for equipment of this quality. December 8, 2014
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!

Daniel D: 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. Feb 26, 2015

Jack G: reviews and Idaho is a land of extremes Jan 15, 2015
Dinesh B: 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. Jan 6, 2015
Denis H: 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. Jan 6, 2015

I then went for a pair of Rukka Armaxion Pants only to find out that RevZiller will not ship this product to New Zealand (Go figure). So have now ended up with the Klim Badlands Pro Pants.

jay b: like the wide pant flair for moto boots. May 12, 2014
Donald T: try it May 8, 2014
Jansen H: Better armor & tougher fabric than the Latitude pants I had my heart set on. Plus, they look better with my Badlands Pro jacket. (Did I just say that?!) May 1, 2014
Daniel A: Waterproof Badlands jacket worked well in heavy rain in Europe last year so I suspect the pants will too. Apr 8, 2014
Robert D: Simply bomber. Love the fit and protection. Apr 7, 2014
Scott F: Based on reviews. However, I am not wild about them. They perform as advertised. I wish the zippers went all the way to the crotch so you could put them on OVER your boots. I hate having to take my boots off to put the pants on or take them off. I recommend suspenders with them even though they fit well. They help to keep the back from sliding down when sitting. Armor wise, my Motoport Air Mesh Kevlar pants have better coverage than these. For the price, I just expect more. Gortex works well. Mar 27, 2014
Mitchell B: Quality of the product. Mar 26, 2014
B R: Protection, all season/weather, comfort. Mar 6, 2014
Matthew B: Amazing! I own the complete set - and it's the best touring suit (in my opinion) for the money. Feb 11, 2014
Mark T: goes with jacket Feb 3, 2014
John P: I wanted a dedicated riding trouser with competition/expedition grade features. These pants have it. Plenty of room to move around on the bike without any binding. Not a slip on piece of kit. They are made to be worn like competition leathers. Not pulled on over street clothes. Well ventilated with long zippered vents front and back. Very well designed and constructed. I was pleasantly surprised that the Chinese exported such high quality. Good on Klim to secure quality tailors. Jan 26, 2014
Arkadiy B: it's KLIM plus I got the matching jacket on Christmas Jan 2, 2014
Rob R: Gore-Tex, D3O Armor, fits well. Dec 24, 2013

Edward J. A: Impressed with quality of design and materials. Wish I had taken this route the first time. Would have saved myself some money in the long run. Sep 16, 2013
T R: Safety, safety, safety is the the name of the game. I like to push it off road on my GS and it is not a matter of if I am going down it is when. These pants will keep me in one piece. Headed to the 2013 BMW GS Trophy and I am not leaving anything on the table... Sep 14, 2013
Geoffrey E: Match the coat. Aug 22, 2013
A shopper asked: 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

RevZilla: 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.

A shopper asked: DO THE KNEE PADS ADJUST? uP OR DOWN? Oct 30, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Clifford H: 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. Oct 30, 2014

David D: I have found the Klim Badlander pants to be very comfortable and extremely durable - very happy with the purchase. In regards to the knee pads, I have removed mine since I wear knee braces instead. As such, I am unable to comment in terms adjustability of same.

A shopper asked: 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? Mar 16, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Steve H: 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. Mar 16, 2014
Reply to Steve Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Bruce M: They are really meant as an outer layer with some type of inner layer for cold weather such as long johns or tights. I've worn them with Gerbings heated liner as well.
That saying, I have worn them over snug jeans in a pinch. Not very comfortable for a long ride, but good for going out where you need some waterproofing or protection from the cold and you need something casual when you get to where you're going.

Keith G: If sized properly, yes, you can comfortably wear jeans under the Badlands Pro pants. I have worn mine over sweat pants, jeans, and cargo shorts. And you will too, because the Klim Badlands pants & jacket are brilliantly engineered & designed for riding safety, function and comfort. It ain't walking around attire, though it does break-in quite a bit. IMO, it's the very best & worth the price. Mar 16, 2014

Bruce C asked: 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 Feb 6, 2014

Jeffrey H: 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.

Eric D: I don't need the suspenders with these (although intuitively it sure seems to be a good idea)
the bigger size for me wallowed around in a way that didn't have me feel comfortable that these would stay in place in a crash.
The smaller size is so tight that they are not moving in any way.

Stephen S: Like Jeffrey H, I ordered the suspenders. They keep the pants exactly where you want them while allowing you to adjust the waist to be a little looser than you'd need to if relying on the waist band to hold the pants up. The looser fit with the suspenders is more comfortable IMHO. Sep 14, 2014

Rudy K: I use the Klim suspender (on my Badlands Pro Pant / Jacket combo) ... the more expensive one (@$50 ?)... they are great quality & are pretty heavy duty. Indeed, very comfortable...they keep the pants in position and make riding more comfortable. Mar 1, 2014

Mark B: Klim makes two kinds of suspenders, one for about $50 and the other for about half. I bought the $25 pair....they work fine and they fit perfectly into the pants....I recommend. Mark Feb 18, 2014

James S: 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.

Greg B asked: 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. Feb 2, 2014

Bruce M: 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 Feb 3, 2014

Chris W: 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. Sep 19, 2014

A s: you have long legs, the larger size might have a longer inseam,
I just measured my #36 Badlands at 31" inseam. they fit my waist at 40". At least you can easily return?exchange them.

Bruce M: 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.

Todd K: I love these pants. I did the Colorado BDR this summer and it was hot. Adventure riding at sustained speeds from 5 to 35 mph the airflow was sufficient to keep me cool. They are very robust and worth the money in my opinion. I prefer a little more knee protection so I augmented this with knee braces and took out the knee cups provided with the pants. There was plenty of room to fit these in the legs.

Go for it, you know you want them.

Stan P: With all the vents open in the trouser legs (or the jacket for that matter also), I have not found the heat to be an issue at all.

Very comfortable fit, very different cut from previous brands I have used but works well.

I would highly recommend both the jacket and the pants on both fine and foul weather days.

Enjoy the journey - Stan.

A shopper asked: 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. Feb 5, 2015

A s: The size on the Badlands is true to size fit. I cant say that about the Latitude or the Rally Air.

The waist has adjustable Velcro straps and the legs have the same. You adjust the leg tight around your boot and it makes up for inches to long that way.

A shopper asked: 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?

Francis H: 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. Jun 16, 2014

Piet H: Hi Wayne, my waste is about the same and my in seam is only slightly longer. I bough the Long version and think that the regular would have been better as knee armour is maxed out to be in right place. This is a great suit. Jun 21, 2014

A shopper asked: I wear a 40 inch waist and a 30 inseam on my jeans. I typically have to purchase in waders or insulated coveralls a Short vs the regular size. Can anybody tell me who may be the same measurements as I am how the pants have fit them?
Just FYI I am 5 ft 9 inches tall. 220 lbs.

Adrian C: I'm approx same measurements, and yes, they were too long; however, the protections were lining up properly when sitting on the bike.
Not so good walking, though... eventually I had to sell them to a taller friend, and he's really happy with them.

Hope this helps...
