Klim Latitude 840 Pants
Used them once already and love 'em. Fit is a bit small, especially in the waist, but only noticed it getting in and out of pants. Fit is great on the bike.
As with all Klim, overbuilt and rugged and gives me great confidence if I ever do go down.
Revzilla CS and shipping awesome as always!!

3 pockets, large vents, grey color good for summer riding
I have Klim Traverse pants also. The Traverse are great for spring and fall but a little too heavy for a hot summer day. Plus only one pocket. The Latitude pants are perfect. Lighter, larger vents plus with the grey color much better for touring and summer. This pair came with a front leg pocket and 2 jean type front pockets. Perfect! I believe the newer version does not have the 2 jean type pockets (bummer). These are great pants and will most likely be my favorite. Nicely made and no flaws like other major brands I have purchased in the past. No need to jump off the bike and put on rain pants or pull off your pants and install the inner waterproof lining....by then you are wet. I highly recommend these pants, sized correctly....I will not use them as over pants. Perfect to use everyday on a long trip.

Fabulous quality, actually waterproof!
After many years buying 'waterproof' items I got some goretex gloves. They worked so I decided to fork out for goretex pants too. These Klim LAttude came with better armour than I expected, fabulous tailoring to suit riding and real quality of finish. I rode for 1 hour in torrential rain and hard wind the first day I got them. I was completely dry. This has never happened in the same circumstances with any of my previous 'waterproof' pants. Only gripe is that I bought a size 34 waist, which is pretty snug over my regular 34 pants and not possible to have over two layers #my regular pants, plus thermals#, it is one or the other. Also I am 6', 32 inseam and if I wear shorter boots I can get a draft up my leg. Conclusion - next pair I will buy depending on what I want to wear underneath #I find one layer underneath these pretty good so am not too disappointed with what I have# and I will buy the 'long' version, preferring a little scrunch in the leg than potential draft if wearing short boots.

I initially purchased the Dakar, but the knee armor is placed so low as to be shin armor. Same thing with the Mojave. I know these won't flow as much air but the placement of the armor is perfect and fit is great. I hope someday colors other than black, grey or high-vis will be an option

Absolutely crucial piece of gear. I like the fit and it sits real well. Havent worn it yet the rain yet so cant speak on the waterproofness.

Best protection from rain and cold
I purchased the Klim Latitude Misano Pants over a year ago and have worn them for several thousand miles, in weather ranging from 100+ degree Texas heat to near-freezing rain/sleet in the Colorado Rockies. These pants will keep you dry and warm, and will protect you very well in the event of a crash.
- quality construction
- integrated pads
- somewhat bulky (to be expected given the protection factor)
- lack of full leg zippers makes quick roadside changes a pain
- hotter than h3ll in 90+ heat
Overall, 5 stars for these adventure slacks.

Versatile, comfortable, and protective
For sizing guidance, watch Revzilla's video and follow the measurement instructions or be prepared for a bad fit. With UnderArmour HeatGear leggings, the Klim pants were comfortable riding from 30 to 85 degrees.

I have always worn leathers, and decided to try textile.
Klim has an obvious excellent reputation , so I went with these.
They are easy to spend the day in , but are very warm. They
are VERY heavy when you take them off. They would take up an entire bag if you packed them on your bike while you wore something else. I have not tried the protection, but I think it would be outstanding..
As for size, I am 5 11 , 200 lbs. Normally wear 36 x 30 pant.
38 fits great with boots. No issues. Not too long.
You wont be disappointed, but they are hot and heavy !!!
