Klim Dakar Pants 4.7 5 112 112
Better then I expected for the money I wore them every day for to weeks in Idaho in temperatures from 95 to 45, I was never too hot or cold. I was disappointed that they didn't come with knee or hip pads. These are almost needed just for the fit. I now need to learn how to wash them. August 18, 2015
Odd sizing, great value and style Fit: I normally wear size 34 waist, "relaxed fit" pants. Looked at the Klim size chart and it appeared that their waist size is true to size, so I ordered a 34. Started to pull up the pants and was concerned that I got the wrong size. I've got big, 27" circumference cyclist quads. These pants are definitely snug between the knee and waist, at least on me. Not painfully tight, just a little tighter than I like. I can see how the tight fit may hinder air flow a bit. I was expecting the fit to be pretty baggy like my other moto pants. The waist sizing is indeed spot on, with velcro waist adjusters on both flanks. Length is good for me too, I'm 6' tall. No dragging material at my ankles. In summary, sizing is odd. True waist and length, but snug thigh zone. Protection: No knee or hip pads? Come on Klim, these aren't moto cross-specific pants. Most would classify these as ADV pants, where road jaunts require some protection. I purchased Klim's D30 hip pad inserts to go with my pants. They fit right in to the pockets but are not very secure. Hip pad pockets need closures of some kind, velcro or a snap. At least they won't fall out with closures, as my pads fall out when I turn the pants upside down. Knee pad pockets are also lower than they should be, with VERY small openings to get your pads inside. I may get knee braces because I don't see my knee pads doing much in a crash. Otherwise, the pants look very sturdy. Nice leather panels on the inside of the legs and tough textiles throughout. Air Flow: This is what you bought these pants for, right? Airflow is good, certainly better than my goretex rain pants. 16" zippers on the front of the quad and openings on the back of the calf. I get good flow just walking around in them. Sitting on the bike I don't feel much because the vents are parallel to the ground, when I stand it's more effective. The snugness on my quads hinders the airflow somewhat, so folks with smaller quads may experience better flow. Value: A Klim product for $210 that's not a shirt or gloves? What's the catch? Oh, there's no knee or hip pads. Otherwise, you get a lot for your money. Great style, protection, air flow, and a great name brand. Would recommend. July 21, 2015
Great pants All the features, good fit, plenty of ventilation. June 8, 2015
Pretty good, armor placement suspect. These pants are sturdy, well made and very abrasion resistant. I have no doubt they will take a lot of abuse. I do have issue with the pants in the knee armor pockets. the pockets are quite small and a little low. I had a crash at 35 mph and the top of my knees got banged up good. The pants prevented any road rash and had no damage to speak of. I did have hip armor in and they did a great job. Sizing is a little odd too. I am 6'2' and wear a 33x34 pant. I tried a 32 tall but the waist was too narrow to get on. A 34 tall fits well but I'm all the way cinched up on the waist. I also find the crotch a bit short - seems like it should be another inch longer or deeper. Still good pants for the money - especially if you wear knee braces instead of knee armor in the pockets. May 27, 2015
Knee pad placement is weird. I got these pants to function as a dual-sport pant, which they do well. They feel solidly built and I haven't found any of the typical textile manufacturing problems (loose threads, weird stitching) that seem to be common in a lot of brands. They're pretty heavy, which is great for road protection, but I wear a lighter pair of pants for off-road summer riding. My only gripe is that the pocket for the knee pad is placed as though Klim believes that legs are 70% femur. I sewed up the bottom portion of the pocket to make the pad ride as high as possible, and it's still an inch or more too low. Otherwise, the fit is great (32 reg). For comparison, I tried on a pair of Klim Overlands and the knee pad placement made more sense. May 26, 2015
These are not an off road pant! I ordered these expecting a high quality warm weather over the boot pant for off road use. What I received was more of an on road asphalt abrasion resistant pant. there is plenty of room under them for knee pads and my boots. Off road pants need pretty much zero abrasion resistance and i expected a lighter weight high quality OFF-ROAD pant. These are not an off road weight pant. Get these if you ride your BMW, down asphalt and gravel roads. Do not get them if you ride mx or supercross, aggressive singletrack or in real hot weather off road. April 6, 2015
Does the job, looks good I shopped around for awhile and finally decided on these after the pants I ordered first were discontinued. They come well rated by the adventure riding community, and for good reason. They're well built, surprisingly comfortable, and strike a good balance between insulating and cooling with the adjustable vents. I rode them once in light rain to see how they did with water. The inside liners were wet when I got home, but I couldn't tell until I took the pants off. A good waterproof spray might keep the water out entirely, but so far I'm impressed. Then I took them for a 80 mile desert ride through rocks, sand, washes, technical hills and long stretches. Great airflow when standing if you're moving at all. Not terribly hot when you're working hard(compared to full mx boots, they're a breeze) I'm a little concerned that the OTB design will wear away at the rub points that contact with the frame of the bike, but there's leather there to help out last longer. I like them. I'm keeping them. I'd probably get them again. March 30, 2015
Love them! I bought these to wear on cold days and they are everything that I expected. They are warm but not hot! Roomy with pockets to keep extra gloves and being over the boot, they kept the water out of my boots while my riding buddies complained of wet feet. I bought them to wear offroad on cold rainy days and they are perfect for this. I will be putting them up when it gets hot. March 2, 2015

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: Does the "standard" (over the boot) version have wide enough legs to fit over motocross boots, or only lighter road boots? Are they fairly resistant to wearing through where boot uppers contact the frame, or do the heat shields protect well against that? Feb 7, 2015

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

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.

Jeff H: I think the Dakars with optional D30 knee and hip armor would fit your needs. Nov 5, 2013

john b asked: I have a BMW 2005 R1200ST. My Paris Dakar days are over. These Klim Dakars sound great .Is there any reason I oughtn't consider them for sport touring and short trip riding ? Jun 12, 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

john b: I have some good rainpants that pack small and some slip on Dainese knee armor to take up some of the bagginess. So that takes care of the 2 short comings.Thanks for your help.. Jun 13, 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
