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.

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
unbelievable pants I bought the Klim Dakar pants because I already broke the bank with my riding jacket and I didn't want to spend another 400$ on a pair of pants. I use them for sport touring on my BMW R1200R. I wore them only in low temps (25ºF-50ºF) with a pair of merino wool long johns underneath and they kept me warm, but I bet in summer they'll be fine too thanks to the huge 20" zipper vents. Cargo pockets are great and they have a safe and oversized velcro closure, pull tabs and the right pocket has a clip for keys in it. They have a jeans fit, but I went with a size up, you don't want them to tight at the waist, since they are pretty high rise, and you can adjust them with the side hook and loop velcros. I'm 6'5" and 34" inseam always look short on me, I got a tall size (36" inseam) and they are perfect, don't come up when on the pegs, don't step on them when walking. They have plenty of room for knee braces or protectors, without they look a bit baggy at the knee but they do not flap or move at any speed. Fabric quality is outstanding, heavy cordura and leather on the inside of the leg from the knee down. Value at Revzilla special price was simply unbeatable but even at full price (around 200$) they would still be good value for the quality you get. I think they should be slightly water resistant but I haven't been rained on yet and I give for granted that if I find myself in a rainstorm I'll wear my rain gear on top. Only wore them twice as of now but they look like they are gonna last a lifetime. October 28, 2013
Great pants Great pants, they aren't any too long but they are fine. Thicker material than I thought they would be, good protection. A bit warmer than I thought they would be event with the vents opened all the way up. Overall great pants & i'd buy again.. October 21, 2013
GREAT PANTS These pants are awesome. I am a 5'6" female and normally wear a size 12 and for these pants, the 36" fits a little big, but with the built in belt they can adjust to fit perfectly. The material is very durable, I really like the leather on the inside of the legs. I rode highway in 80 degree weather with just compression shorts on and they kept me pretty cool. Definitely worth the extra few dollars for a decent pair of pants. I haven't tested them on single track riding yet, but i am gonna guess they might be a little warm for slower riding because the material is so heavy. All in all, i LOVE these pants. September 16, 2013
Love these pants! These are men's pants, but they fit me (an average sized woman) great! A little short (which is surprising for a men's size) but overall a nice fit and SUPER comfortable. Love them. September 9, 2013
Good purchase comfort fit and durability are worth the money, even in hot weather August 26, 2013
Pretty much a slam dunk. Come On, they are KLIM's Pants and jersey performed as advertised. Rode through sagebrush that would have torn denim to shreds. Not a tear one. Took a header or two on top or sand and rocks. No damage, to the pants that is. Woke up in the morning to frost, and by noon it was 94 degrees. A simple zip of the air vents and stayed reasonably comfortable all day. Would highly recommend to any rider that is doing adventure or off road riding. August 13, 2013
True to size waist Not sure why others say they run large. They are pretty accurate at the waist. I have 33" waist and the 30 fits, but 32 would be a better choice if you want to wear much of a base layer, like sweats. They do get more loose below, but that is to be expected. You can tighten up the ankle so you don't look like a NASCAR driver. Room for a knee pad as stated. Suggest getting the replacement Klim hip pads and some strap on knee pads. Zilla's closeout price is insane. July 9, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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
