Klim Dakar Pants Videos

The ride started with a nip in the air. Thirty miles later it is sunny and warm. Like a chameleon, the Dakar Pant, with its controlled ventilation chassis, changes to meet the demands of any condition with little adjustment. The Dakar can adapt with the help of 20 inch mesh-lined zippered thigh vents and a mesh-lined rear leg vent. Adaptation does not come at the cost of performance and durability. The Dakar Pant is built with TNP heat and abrasion- resistant leather panels on the inner legs, Cordura® fabric for strength and highly reinforced knees and seat. Be ready to take the lead no matter the condition with the Dakar Pant.

Great pants for the price point I wore these pants on my long trip, USA to Argentina, and they performed well over the 14,000 mile trip. I personally think these pants provide everything you need without spending hundreds of dollars for "adventure" pants. They are a bit on the warm side, but if you stand up with the vents open you get a ton of airflow and cool off quick. In Ecuador I did wreck the bike and the pants showed no damage whatsoever. Very Solid Pant. May 4, 2014
Cómodos y frescos Son realmente cómodos, después de unos minutos no sientes que traigas overpants, frescos y la calidad de los materiales son inmejorables. Lo único que pediría son más bolsas para guardar cosas May 5, 2014
Second Pair of these... I love them I use these on my 2010 KTM 450 XCW, and they have been great. The only thing I'd like to see is possibly some better leather coverage to help protect the pants *when* they contact the header pipe. I unfortunately burnt up my first pair on my last trip to Hatfield McCoy while filling up at a gas station. I've burnt a few cheaper pairs of pants in the past in falls, this time was certainly less dramatic, but I burnt them in the same spot as the falls. As for fit. These are a little wider at the bottom where your boot goes which is a great change. My previous pair had trouble going over my boots (Gaerne SG10). And I wear a 34" jeans, and I got he 34" pants. They are a little bigger fit than jeans but that is expected/wanted. They have adjustment straps to make them fit perfect. Venting is good, however i believe the opening is bit smaller in these than the previous generation. I've only had a couple rides on these, but they feel/act like my old ones, and as long as I can keep them off my exhaust pipe we should have a long relationship. May 5, 2014
Klim Dakar Pants These are great pants. Very tough. Very durable and high quality. They do get a little hot but with the kind of protection that is to be expected. April 21, 2014
OK, but spend the money for the Overland See my review of the Overland. Cost more, but Gor Tex, great zips for ventilation, super nice D30 armor. If you can swing the $, well worth to upgrade to the Overland. If you have armor already, and don't mind the lack of waterproofing, these are pretty good value for the money. Note, they run larger than the Overland. March 10, 2014
Tough gear that's too short There isn't a whole lot of good riding gear for women so I wind up buying men's. These pants fit well except for one problem -- way too short. I'm a 31" inseam and with my riding boots on, the hem hits the ankle. I almost sent them back because of that but they're tough and durable and the styling is okay. Zips open on the thighs for air flow and that helps in the summer. I had to put extra padding in the knees so it would rest more comfortably (knee pads were chafing on inside). They're breaking in nicely too so they've become more comfortable with time. December 29, 2013
Great pants! I bought these as a gift and we were both really impressed with the quality of these pants - beautiful seaming and lots of options for venting and stretching. Was a great purchase! February 10, 2014
Great Quality and Fit Excellent quality build and fit. The pant are comfortable. I am using them both as street pants and offroad. They are warm enough for the winter here. I have one minor problem, the knee pad pockets fit a little low...what I mean is that the knee pad pockets should be 2 inches higher for my legs. I might get them fixed at the local tailor.

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
PETER M: Workmanship Aug 22, 2014
Blake A: Blew out the crotch of some cheap riding pants. Ordered these while on the road on a long distance trip and they were delivered to my next destination. Nice Revzilla. These are well built, like the pockets but need protection added. Planning to upgrade knees and currently use with armored shorts. Sold the dual sport and use it on the sport touring bike. May 2, 2014
Dale H: The price RevZilla had them on sale Apr 27, 2014
Wayman P C: Recommended by a good, trusted source of information. Mar 1, 2014
Stephen D: Best fitting pants ever Nov 4, 2013
Janet F: Best offroad pants out there. Leather on both inner knee area protects pants from knee brace tears. Great fit and easy adjustment and easy to slip on over knee braces. Love cooling vents at the crotch. I wash the pants in machine on delicate, and they come out looking like new after a weekend of muddy trails. Oct 12, 2013
A shopper asked: The written add for these pants indicates that they come with removable knee and hip armor, but the video presentation indicated they do not? Do these Dakar pants come with knee and hip armor? Oct 6, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert I: Yes, they do ship with armor for the hip and knee.The provided armor is thin and light, and kinda "better than nothing". Because of the cut of the pants, a more robust knee armor like the D3O doesn't work very well. Oct 7, 2013
Reply to Robert Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert L: Yes, there are pockets in the hips & knees for removable padding. I wouldn't consider it armor however, it's more like thin closed-cell foam padding. Oct 6, 2013

Ryan S: They do come with "armor". It is very light duty but makes the pants fairly comfortable. Oct 8, 2013

Cathleen P: Armor is not supplied, great pants otherwise. Oct 6, 2013
Reply to Cathleen Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Scott J: They have a thin pad in them but it's certainly not "armor" like SAS TEC or Knox or any of the quality armors for most street riding gear. These are more off road oriented/dual sport and they provide ample room to wear real off-road gear underneath like knee braces, etc. Oct 7, 2013

A shopper asked: KLIM Dakar Pants for $ 119, identified on web page: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/klim-dakar-pants do not identify if these are past year model or current. Other web sites identify the year model. What year are these pants? Dec 14, 2012
