Klim Dakar Pants 4.8 5 92 92
Klim Dakar Pants - Premium Pants I have tried and raced enduros/hare scrambles in may other brands. None come close to Klim. Cost more, but FAR superior in fit, construction, and features. August 18, 2014
A good pant but still searching for the right size. This is my second pair of motorcycle pants. I am 6' 1" and have a 31" waist. My previous pants (another brand) were a 32" Tall and they are so enormous that I never wear them. When I bought the Klim I ordered the 30" Tall and while the length is right the waist is a little tight but they are manageable. Overall, I am satisfied with the pants, they have been very comfortable while I have been riding and the pocket locations are good. The ventilation is adequate, The combination of the Dakar pants and jeans have kept me reasonably comfortable while riding in temps from the 50's-90's. I have not ridden with them in the rain but they kept me dry riding for several hours through heavy coastal mist (anyone living near the ocean on the west coast will know what I am talking about). Fortunately, I have not had the chance to test the pants in a crash but as others have said there is not much armor built into the pants so they are not going to do much but stop some abrasions in a low speed crash on the pavement or on the dirt - you definitely want to add some knee guards if you are planning on going hard (they fit well over the Fox knee guards I borrowed when test riding my cousin's new KTM-500). All and all, I am satisfied. July 21, 2014
Length of pant is only issue Iam 5'7 and a 34 inch waist and my only option is a 32 inseam which is two inches to big. It's more noticeable when you put knee pads in the pant. I had to pull them out because they set below the knee. Hip pad pockets in my mind are worthless . Make a better pocket or bigger pad. They make the tall and reg. in their pants but not short . As much as I like there pants this will prevent me and a lot of others from purchasing higher end klim pants. At 900 you would think they would offer short sizes. July 17, 2014
These pants are very functional and well made. Zipper and stitiching are quality. I work on my motorcycle and these Klim pants are exactly what I needed for a variety of conditions. I have a 32" waist and stand 5'11". When I replace these I would probably get the longer inseam, but the regular inseam is fine. I wear bicycle shorts underneath and the pants are very comfortable. They don't come with armor, but the abrasion protection appears adequate. I am discerning about moto gear and I like this product. July 14, 2014
Best Riding Pants ever Have used these about a dozen times now and they are awesome. Plenty of air flow and very comfortable. Couls ware them all day. I am a 34 waist and weigh 185 and ordered a 34 size and they fit perfectly July 14, 2014
KLIM in general Are you sick of Hollister sized riding clothes? Are you sick of riding clothes that last 5 rides? Are you sick of buying other name brand riding gear and seeing how cheap they are made? Yeah, me too. Buy KLIM, it may be more, but it is what riding gear today should be, look like, feel like. Zippers that last, fitment that is actual, protection and ruggedness. KLIM is doing a lot right with all their clothes. June 30, 2014
Comfortable yet seem very durable. I have purchased and returned severe pair of riding pants now. This pair is the most comfortable and seem to be the most durable. They have key features in the right spots, such as the leather panels on the inside of the leg, wide leg with adjustable velcro, long zippers in the inside upper thigh for ventilation and pockets above the knees. I wore them for the first time during a ride that started out overcast and cool, then turned from a drizzle to a down poor and latter on got sunny and warm. Yes, i live in central texas. i was comfortable the entire time. My crotch got a little wet but the pants aren't promised to be waterproof. The venting was adequate, my bike blocks most of the wind from entering, but was still better than not having the vents. I was so pleased with the quality of KLIM products that i purchased a mesh jacket to match. The Finish on the KLIM product is detailed and sturdy. I highly recommend this product and for the price, cannot be beat. June 23, 2014
I would wear them to work inf only I could Great pair, not only for my enduro but for my 990 Adv, fit is great abit larger than I expected, but its ok, boots and protection will fit quite well inside. June 2, 2014

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: 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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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

Matthew H asked: Can I order a size up (40) and hope to be able to wear jeans under them? May 22, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark D: I'm sure its possible however I don't feel that it will very comfortable. You will still have to take your boots off to get the pants off. The pants are oversize as they allow room for knee braces. They are very comfortable with using Alpinestar liners or Under Armour liners. The styling allows you to be comfortable while lounging around with an adult beverage. I just finished a 3 week trip in mainland Mexico using the Klim Mojave Pants, the vented version of Dakar Pants. 5300 miles of asphalt and dirt speeds up to 110 miles, sea level to 10000 feet, temperature was 55-95 degrees. I was very comfortable the entire time, 2 of the other 3 riders wore the same pants. We were riding KTM 950/990. Cheers Mark May 29, 2014

REINIER R: you can size up but I would not recommend wearing a jeans inside as its too hot inside if ur using in warm climate. Yes there are vents there but they only work when ur moving, on stop lights you will sweat a lot. hope that helps. May 29, 2014

Bryan D: I ordered a pair of 34's (klim dakars) and they fit nice and loose (with waste adjustability). I've been able to get dressed for the gym and wear my workout clothes under them with no problem. I think jeans would also work too. May 29, 2014

Stephen S: John - I bought my Dakar pants for off road riding but have used them some for long distance road trips. I think they are great pants and very comfortable. However, I think they are a little too baggy for road trips. I called Klim after buying them and asked them what armor I should purchase and they recommended D30 for knees and hips. This armor works but the knee pads don't stay in place because they are so baggy. I ended up using strap on knee pads. I don;t really like to wear them much on the road. I prefer slimmer pants. I also have the Klim Latitude pants for road touring and am happy with them. Just my experience. Good luck! Jun 12, 2014

Jason C: These pants seem to be bomber. I've only got about 2000 miles on then so far. They are really comfortable, and have great ventilation. I like the fit as other pants I've had were bulky and sloppy. They have well thought out locations for flexible fabricthat I think really help make them so comfortable. I can't say regarding rain as I've been fortunate this spring to have good weather. They are really solid for the price. Jun 15, 2014

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!

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.

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.
