Dennis P: High elastic back at waist. Precise tailoring, venting, pipe protected area and reputation for quality. Nov 18, 2013
Regina R: Needed well made, well ventilated pants for ride from Tecate to Cabo (Baja) in late September. Going to be hot, going to be 1400 miles off-road. Have heard lots of good things about Klim gear and their quality, figure this will be a good test. Sep 11, 2013
Christopher M: They fit the style of pants that I need, get great reviews, and the price was just right. Aug 20, 2013
A shopper asked: Can these pants be used for cold weather riding as well? Say 20-30F? I would like to save a little $$ by buying one pair of pants. I was thinking that I could use over fleece pant but didn't know if they were fully vented or not. Thanks. Jan 17, 2014

Joe T: Remember the rule of thumb is to subtract 20 degrees from the ambient temperature to equate passing through the air on a bike - your 20 - 30F becomes 0 - 10F.

I ride in Colorado and Utah (week long adventure rides with camping when I can) where the temps can change quite a bit throughout the day and night. Given my budget range (no $600 pants for me) the Klim Dakar pants have been great but there are limits. Alternating between athletic type briefs for the warmer days and a pair of mid weight thermals for cooler weather has helped to extend the Dakars usable range. When I do ride in 20 degree weather what I've got on top has more to do with my overall warmth then the pants - the liner in my Tourmaster plus a heavy weight thermal and a balaclava under the helmet really helps to keep my heat in.

I have had some long, very cold rides heading back home on the slab after a week in the woods, at pace for many hours nothing I have is keeping me warm enough.

Semi technical trail riding from camp site to camp site over the course of a number of days (in cold weather) the Klims have been good as long as I've got the thermals underneath.

The main vents have long zippers so regulating heat/air flow is pretty easy. The stretch panels on the inner thighs will let a certain amount of air migrate through, you have no control over them. That being said it's a relatively small surface area and the articulation/flexibility of the panels really adds to the pants comfort.

Good luck and happy riding!

William S: I bought these for spring and fall 60-80F. I am a wimp in the cold and these pants fit me pretty true to size so maybe I can wear some thermals under them if needed, but for me that's about it. These pants have a couple of non-closable vents as well as a couple of large closable vents. I have a pair of Klim Latitute Misano pants for colder rides 30-60F with a thermal base layer. like I said.... I am a wimp and 80% of my riding is on the highway. I have the mesh version for >80F. I hope this helps! Jan 17, 2014

REINIER R: IM using mine as low as 45* at night here in NV and its good except you feel little cold where the stretch part of the pants going 45-55mph. Long rides I put on long johns, short rides just the pants only. Hope that helps, Im vere happy with my purchase. Jan 17, 2014

I have several different weight layering pants for bicycling that I wear depending on temperature.
Great pants.

A shopper asked: Can you please put up a video for this pant, Along with which brand - CE knee guard can be used along or fits well ? Oct 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ian B: I'd suggest you wear armor that attaches more directly to you than rides in the pants for these. They are a loose cut, intended to go over protective gear or knee braces. That loose fit makes them comfortable, you can get air circulating, and get them over armor - but will allow any knee armor to shift easily away from where you're trying to protect in the event of a fall.

Under these I wear the Forcefield Zeus knee armor, and quite like them. Though there's lots of other options for armor that is worn more directly on the body. If you expect to be in an area with a lot of rocks, like desert west or mountains vs. more muddy/woods terrain you might focus on armor with a hard exterior layer to help deflect any falls on pointy rocks vs. the softer stuff like Forcefield makes.

But as an aside, the Zeus knee armor works well. I put it to the test at Cornerspin when I went down hard at one point.

A shopper asked: I'm interested in the Klim Dakar pants. I saw on reviews of a different Klim pant a review where the reviewer said the cloth covering the backside was not abrasion resistant. Is that true for the Dakar pants as well? I see on the Dakar pants description it says 840D Cordura is used on the body of the pants, but I wanted to be sure, given the review I saw. Thanks. Mar 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joe T: There is Cordura covering the seat and a medium sized area on the back of the thigh as well as down around the cuff. In between those areas is a combination of gussets, vents and stretch panels.

Presuming you are looking for butt coverage - it's there and nicely fitted though the entire length of the rear of the pant is NOT Cordura.

I've probably got about 1200 miles, mostly off road on my pair (these are my first). I pack minimally and camp everywhere I go so inevitably I spend a lot of time in the pants throughout the day (more than riding - hiking, setting up camp, sitting on my ass in the woods, etc.) The backside has been more than durable enough for my needs so far.

For the price I think these are nice pants. The most you'll get out of them is three seasons (and that's with an under layer during cold rides) and the front pockets are small. All in all a good product.

Good luck and rubber side down!

Joe

Dan B asked: Dan B You asked: Hello, I own a Klim Latitude Misano jacket in Hi-Vis yellow and I couldn't be happier with it. I absolutely busted the bank to buy that jacket.
I'm doing a month long trip aboard my 2009 Concours-14 next August thru Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
I was originally wondering if the Klim Mojave Pant would be suitable for extended riding such as this ? After posting my question on the Mojave side, i received excellent feedback which has caused me to reconsider and go with the Dakar Pant. I understand I'd need a rain pants for weather days.
I commute on the C-14 everyday about 50 miles round trip, so I need something that will last but I can't afford the matching Latitude pants right now
Thank you for the advice and I am totally open to suggestions.
