Klim Tactical Short 

Say goodbye to the days of chafing and other riding maladies associated with loose-fitting riding shorts. The Klim Tactical Short is designed to keep your equipment stowed properly and to wick moisture away from your skin to ensure maximum possible comfort on your ride. The saddle area is constructed with a high-tech triple-density chamois that will help absorb riding vibrations and cushion your ride. PORON XRD Extreme Impact Protection material is embedded in strategic locations to help absorb impacts. On impact, the PORON XRD high-performance molecules create a unique protective shield that can repeatedly absorb up to *90% of the most intense force.

  • Padded compression short
  • Moisture-wicking polyester material
  • 4-way-stretch spandex
  • Soft elastic waist

Light, comfortable and protective The crotch pad is awesome, no more weird, numbing sensation in the nether region! I don't use my air hawk anymore. July 12, 2016
Very comfortable. Untested protection. I bought these shorts to wear under un-padded off-road pants. I was very surprised how comfortable they wore. However, I am not convinced the padding will be much benefit in a crash. These shorts appeared to have been drop-shipped from Klim. Not the usual quick shipping I have come to expect from Revzilla.

Best In Category I tried Alpinestars Bionic Freeride Shorts and Knox's Defender Shorts along with the Klim Tactical Shorts. These had the best armor and were a lot more comfortable with way more maneuverability. The armor has a good feel to it... sort of like firmly squishy if that makes sense. You can push on it and it'll gradually sink in a little but if you fall on it, its solid. I'm on the thin side so my hip bones stand out more than average, these protected there as well as everywhere I needed whereas the others not so much. Of the three I tried, these were by far the least restrictive. They stay where they are supposed to. They're comfortable and I dont feel them when I'm riding. For reference I use them under my Alpinestars Missile Airflow Pants. I ride a Yamaha R1M so they might feel better for a more relaxed upright seating position, but Astars armor wouldn't let me lift my knees where I need them and Knox's armor didn't cover my hip bone. If you're looking into these, I would buy a few different ones and keep the best fit but definitely give these a try. March 15, 2016
Excellent versatility Great shorts that allow you to wear whatever pants you want. On the warm side for sure: you'll have some crotch pot cookin' goin on. September 8, 2015
Most useful protective shorts I've found I tried a few other options but all were too uncomfortable for cruiser riding. They claim the armor will stiffen on impact. I hope that is the case because it feels pretty thin but I know a lot of great things have come from those material engineers. I hope this is one of them. The shorts are very comfortable and easy to wear which means I "will" wear them where I would not wear the others I tried. And as they say, gear is only good if you will wear it. So, I'd recommend these to anyone looking for some reasonable protection. I'm 5'10" 190lbs and the large fit well. June 12, 2015
Casual fit under jeans, with good protective quality Tried the force field shorts, which had more protection, but I felt like an nfl linebacker. This is great product that will fit under jeans and is fairly discrete and comfortable to wear with a whole day if riding. Would definately recommend. December 1, 2014
they're OK They're very good quality base layer shorts, but there are a few issues. First, the gaps in the padded areas are begging to be exploited by branches or any other hazards, leaving a sense of vulnerability - strange from a piece of protection. Second, the padded seat looks to be designed for a bicycle seat. It doesn't reach the 'sitting bones' but sits in there where a bicycle seat would be. I can't say it's totally ineffective on a motorbike, though. Next, these are warm. I'd say wear them when it's cold out. Also, the silicone strip around the thighs are good at ripping leg hairs at inopportune moments. It must be another reason why bicycle guys shave their legs. And then the price... But they're comfortable (in the cool weather) and I like the way they beef up existing hip protection. I wear them. Buy a pair if you're in a splurging mood. October 18, 2014
