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

Klim Tactical Shorts 4.6 5 57 57
Comfortable, Protective, Good Price These are great. They don't add much bulk, wick sweat and help with airflow. They have butt padding, which can kinda feel like you're wearing a diaper, but I went for a 6 mile hike wearing these (I rode to the hike spot) and they felt fine, no chafing. I combine mine with Klim XC pants and a pair of knee pads. August 23, 2016
Not bad.. I bought these because I read a review that said they cover the pelvis and they don't so that was a big disappointment.. If they actually covered the pelvis I would give them 5 stars. If your gear doesn't have hip protection on the sides then these are a good buy. For comfort: These are very good because they have butt padding which makes a huge difference if you are riding with a stock seat, no need to upgrade to a gel seat/etc.. For sizing: I am 6ft and normally wear a size 32/33.. I ordered a small and a medium. Small was way too tight, medium fit good/a little tight, I could of almost went with a large but was tired of making returns. August 21, 2016
Just what I was looking for. Two weeks ago I attended the Aaron Stephenson Cornerspin school which teaches road skills on a dirt track so that you can learn the thresholds of traction in a safe environment. I also snowboard and am going to start doing track days so a good pair of impact shorts was needed. I looked at reviews for everything from lightly padded boxer briefs to shorts that appear to have grenade proof ballistic plates all over them. In the end, I knew I wanted a blend of protection and comfort. Too little protection and there's little point. Too little comfort and I'll probably talk myself out of wearing them when I ought to. My first impression of these shorts when I received them was that the padding was on the lighter duty than what I was looking for. However, they claim that their engineers made this super amazing padding that absorbs and distributes impacts while being flexible. I also really liked the padded chamois feature. Now it was off to the class to see how they would do. The class involves a lot good bit of wiping out on hard packed dirt. Fortunately I didn't manage to high side during my many unintentional dismounts. Despite these many falls of landing on my sides (elbows, hips, & knees), I had absolutely no bruising on my hips and I believe these shorts are to thank for that. Additionally, I found them to be very comfortable and not restrictive at all. I would recommend these if your situation is similar to mine. If I were to start racing on track vs my occasional track day, I might look for something with a bit more padding, but for going to the mountains, these will fit easily and comfortably under a pair of kevlar jeans. I am 5'11" tall, 180 lbs, 33" waist. I bought the medium and large and kept the large. The medium could fit but was a bit more snug than I wanted. August 16, 2016
You get what you pay for: quality A quality product as one of the layers of rider comfort and protection August 2, 2016
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
