Not Impressed any Longer
This is my first review but wanted to share. I have been a KLIM fan boy for years but no longer. I am on my 3rd Badlands suit and their newest design one uses sub-par fabric, zippers and snaps. The very first time I put the pants on and zipped the pants leg around my boot the tab ripped off. I have wore them 5 times and the material on the inside cuffs is worn through completely and showing the inside fabric. The zippers on the cuffs don't work anymore and again they have only been worn 5 times. So if you don't off-road this suit will be fine for you and looks nice. It vents well but if you do off-road then this suit is not the one for you. I washed the pants and all the zipper tabs but one fell off. The snaps to tighten around the boots are weak and won't hold. I am now looking for a new brand of suit since Klim is not the quality it use to be. Save your money and purchase a less expensive brand since this was not money well spent.

I ride KTM 990 or 1190R

Some great features, but some flaws
I don't review products too frequently, but I thought since people buying these pants are laying out some major coin, I owed it to the group.

I also have the Badlands Jacket, which I would give 4 stars too. Some good features, water bladder is overly complex to work, a little too short for my taste (only a little), zippers are way to hard to close on vents with one hand. Otherwise really good jacket.

For the pants... I just returned from 1100 mile ride through CO, mix of onroad/offroad. Did COBDR a month ago in the pants and another 1,000 miles around Sturgis over Mother's day, all on my KTM 1190 Adventure R. I'm 5'11, 185, 33 inch waist. So.... these pants are definitely waterproof. The pockets are actually great. Even if you forget to zip them, the way the are designed, nothing (at least for me) is going to fall out. The vents on the front of the legs, open and close well, and I could operate them with one hand (much more than I can say for jacket). The back vents, were fine, the zipper dangled right by my lower leg, so I kept thinking something was loose or flapping, but that is a small niggle. The main niggles I have are:

1. The knee pads are sub-optimal. I'm sure they would work great if you crashed, but they were really abrasive if you stand a lot on the bike. It was really uncomfortable. As anyone who rides adventure bikes, knows, you are standing much/most of the time and having it be abrasive every time you squeeze the tank is not great. I found myself constantly fidgeting trying to find a comfortable spot on the knee pads. Yes, they were in the right spot in the pant, yes they were inserted properly.

2. This is the big one. I have slightly bigger legs. I was a soccer player and then a bike racer throughout my life. MY thighs are big. Not crazy, but big. I followed the fit guidlines and was a 34. Unfortunately, I have a 31ish inch inseam and a bike with a 35 inch seat height. You know the drill, it is important to have pants that allow range of motion so you can put your foot down. These pants are like having a belt tied around my thighs. They bind up in my thighs and I had a low speed tip because of it (and some rider error of course). I'm constantly trying to adjust pants, slide them up, etc. to get range of motion, but nothing helps. I don't know why they didn't put some flexibility into these pants. For $600 or whatever, they really should be dialed. I used to ride F800 so I had the BMW Ralley pants, and those were a dream. Since I don't ride BMW anymore, I rather not wear those pants. I'm going to try the Dianese's as it seems like they have some good flex built in.

Anyway, love Revzilla, but thought I should pass along these concerns. I probably should have returned them right away, but figured maybe they had to break in or something....

Crashed in them
I crashed my KLR wearing these. I had slowed the bike to about 20 mph before I hit the ground in a grassy ditch. Impact broke a couple bones in my hand and wrist. No doubt the badlands jacket and pants spared me from further injuries. There was dirt and grass stuck to the impact points. Afterwards I threw away a $600 Shoei on principle that helmets are for one time use. Not this jacket and pants. Besides the dirt stuck to it there is no evidence of a crash. No rips or stretched fabric. This stuff is tough.

Complaints? The knee armor. It wanders around in it's pocket and is uncomfortable. It did its job in the crash though. Still, it is weird as the jacket doesn't have this problem with the elbow and shoulder armor. Klim could make this work better.

Fit? Don't use your pants size. Use the fit guide. I'm 5'9" 150lbs. In jeans I wear a 32 30. Size 30 fits me like it should. Enough room to layer.

Should you buy it? These aren't cheap. They saved my hide.

I haven't tried them in the rain.

One pant that is good for anything!
Much like the Badlands jacket these pants are BUILT! Although they are a little awkward to get on over MX boots they are built tough with some pretty tough looking material. If you are looking at these seriously then you probably already know about Armacor and Superfabric so I won't bother with the nuts and bolts. These fit nice and trim on me, you can snug down the excess in the legs and multiple snap point on the cuffs keep them from being "flappy" anywhere. The knee/ shin pads are adjustable and they fit perfect with my tall MX style boots. They are made to be "OTB" but I have tried it and you can wear them "ITB" if you think you might be getting into some nasty cuff grabbing terrain. The intake and exhaust vents work excellent and the waist adjustments keep them just right up top. If you want a top of the line shell and armor, these fit the bill nicely. The leather on the inside of the legs and knees gives you a little better leg grip on your tank for offroading as opposed to all fabric which would be slippery. As with the jacket there are generous waterproof pockets if you have more things to go in them.

Great Product.. Terrible support from Klim
Bought the Badlands jacket and pants and took a spill on the pavement a few weeks back. Ended up with a tear in the right knee... right on the seam at the base of the knee area.

Figured no big problem. Send it into Klim take advantage of their repair policy and have them do a quality repair (at my expense…no expectation of warranty coverage).

After repeated inquiries and a final converstion with the head of customer support, No such luck. The explanation for their inability to repair is that because they couldn’t guarantee that it would be restored to 'as new' condition in terms of protection and waterproofness, they wouldn’t perform the repair. Turns out they flat out do not repair the “Superfabric" used on the Badlands and other of their high end gear. I repeated several times that I wasn’t asking them to restore it to original condition, but rather they they use their knowledge, tools and materials to repair it to the best of their ability... to no avail.

If you’re thinking, why didn’t you take advantage of the “Gear Protection Guarantee”?

"If you are involved in a motorcycle *accident within FIVE YEARS of purchasing *qualifying KLIM® gear, KLIM® will replace the damaged KLIM® gear FREE OF CHARGE.”

I tried that too, but they won’t consider it unless you have a police report and so that led nowhere.

So, the takeaways are the following

1) if you are considering a Badlands garment (or above) that uses their “Superfabric" know that you’re on your own if you have a fall and you suffer any damage on the knees and elbows. Klim will do nothing for you.

2) If you damage your gear in an accident (how else is there to do it) then make sure you get a copy of the police report (in my experience the last thing I want when I crash is the police to be involved, but maybe that’s just me). Otherwise, Klim will do nothing for you.

Bulletproof!
I am new to the adventure bike scene and bought these because the reviews said they weren't made for going down once; they're made for going down multiple times. So, off I went in my new Klim Badlands jacket and pants and my new BMW 1200 GSA to California's Mendocino National Forest. I was quite the sight, so clean and shiny.

Well, after three "get offs" and two water crossings, I can say these literally "saved my a**" and survived to ride again. The fabric and armor work exactly as advertised. I tested the hips, knees, elbows, and shoulders, With a temperature variation of 65-95 degrees F, I also tested the ventilation and drying. Everything worked as advertised and promised.

There was definitely some "break in" required. But, once you get past that it seems like both the jacket and the pants form and conform to your body. The more you wear them, them, the better they feel. Everything fit true to size. And, given that I am 6'6" with long arms and legs, that is saying a lot. When I bought these I wondered if I was just wasting money; I now appreciate that I got what I paid for. I am now a huge Klim fan.

High Quality
Super quality. Good protection. Like others say the fit in the legs is relatively close. I am 5' 9", 172 pounds, and I got the 34. Probably a little generous in the hips/seat. Everyone's body is different, so you may need to try these on to really have a sense of them. The sizing chart is a good guide.

If I only had 1 pair of motorcycle pants, these would be them.
If I could only wear a single pair of riding pants, these would probably be them. They are waterproof and armored and have some great ventilation. You're going to be hot in the summer, however, you can certainly pull it off. Winter will require another base layer. I use these to commute and tour. When commuting, I usually wear jeans underneath. They can be a bit hard to get on over pants, but they fit fine once on.

Odd bits/Nit-picking: I wear a 32" waist with 33" inseam. I couldn't even get the 32" pair on...not even close. 34" fit fine and I can squeeze in a pair of jeans. I went with a LONG fit as well. They are a tad too long, but the regular ones would have been too short. Walking around in them is a bit odd, but they are PERFECT on the bike.

Overall, they are worth the price.

I just received the Klim Badlands pants after literally 7 months of research. The back story is I first purchased the First Gear Kilimanjaro jacket and pants. The pants were heavier and bulkier than I liked and leaked in the crotch during the first rain. I kept the jacket (good bang for the buck) but returned the pants for store credit (rain gear must be rain proof for me). My requirements for the replacement pants were no removable liners, thermal or waterproof. I wanted one piece shell pants. I wanted the goretex "guaranteed to keep you dry" designation. I wanted top flight armor and I wanted truly functional venting. I also looked for the simplest design as this usually means less to break and easier to fix when it inevitably does. After too many hours of comparison shopping and reading research and reviews, I selected the Badlands. I just got back from about 600 miles of road riding in the pants. No rain. Here are my impressions so far.

As others noted the legs are tight. Really tight. I'm almost 6' 2" 180-185, I wear 32 x 34 Lee carpenter jeans, 37" true waist, 32" true inseam. So I'm basically tall and slender, especially my lower half. I bought the size 42. Fits fine everywhere but about mid thigh to upper calf. In this area they are a bit too snug. This is compounded by the odd location of the lower Velcro cinch strap. Its too high. When I sit on my '05 R1200GS the stiff material behind the knee bunches up uncomfortably. The greater the knee bend the worse this will be. The Velcro strap is really not functional as the pants will have no extra material to cinch on any average person. I don't see how anyone would fit a knee brace in there, but I have no experience with them so cant comment. Ive looked closely at the lower Velcro cinch strap and believe it can be carefully removed with a stitch picker. It serves no function for me and just pinches the back of my knee. It needs to go. I also believe discomfort in the pants overall will decrease as they break in. But be warned there is little extra room for an insulating layer or bulky thighs. fortunately the materials are so thick they offer decent protection from cold. I work a thin base layer underneath and that was about all I had room for. For me that's fine as I did not buy them as a winter pant but a general purpose three season pant (I live in central Illinois).

The complaints in reviews below about the thinner materials, broken zipper pulls, snapped plastic D rings, and weak cuff snaps may be legit but they also seem minor. The zippers are clearly high quality and the pulls (the rubber and textile part not the metal part) can easily be replaced if they break. I use reflective tent guy-line cord on mine. The D rings at the waist are a bit thin and the material anchoring them is not super burly. But you cannot cinch these pants tight enough to effectively hold them up (see the need for suspenders discussed below) while walking. so there should be no need to crank on those D rings. They are just for keeping your shirt tucked in and adjusting from sitting on the bike to standing while walking. and if they break they are easily repaired at minimal cost or hassle The snaps at the cuff are not super burly and they may not hold sufficiently in the two tighter positions. But if I really care this is easily and cheaply remedied with a trip to the seamstress for a Velcro addition at the cuff. As far as the thinner materials Im okay with it. The pants are beefy in the major places that count, the other material seems adequate. And reducing some of the bulkiness of the Kilimanjaro pants was important for me.

The pants are still heavy, even with the pockets empty, and unless you have some prominent hips to hang these off you will want the suspenders. I ordered them immediately after trying on the pants for the first time. Trust me on this one. Factor the price of the deluxe Klim suspenders into the final cost. The Kilimanjaro pants included them.

These pants have no integrated gator or inner cuff. I like this. While it does allow more wind up the legs, especially with the less than optimal cuff snap adjustment, it eliminated the constant hassle of the typically ineffective inner cuff and a point of weakness. I take stand alone goretex hiking gators (REI.com or Black diamond equipment.com) if I need more protection in this area.

Overall I'm satisfied with the pants so far. Each pair of pants offers its unique trade offs. I selected the Badlands over the Rev it option due to the more basic design that had fewer frills. Also the venting appeared more functional, though I had no need to test it in early April.

I hope my contribution helps some. Good luck.

Lives up to expectations of Klim
Purchased these in February for a 2 week trip south on a GSA, based on how happy I am with the Badlands jacket purchased from Revzilla last June. I'm 6'1", 190 lbs and in pants normally wear a 34 leg and depeding on the brand of pant wear anything from a 32-34 waist (so I'm probably about a 33), actual waist measurement according to the Klim chart is a 36 around the belly button.

As I was ordering these just before a trip I really obsessed over the sizing as according to the size chart I was a 32 long, but that just seemed wrong based on every other pair of pant and over pant I've every owned. So Revzilla being as helpful and accommodating as they are, I ordered a 32 long and a 34 long. Both fit, but the 32 was very tight as these are quite narrow through the legs and that's saying something as I pretty much have grasshopper legs. The 34 long are awesome on their own and will also fit over a pair of jeans. They are still slender as other reviews have stated, but comfortable and once on, do not flap around on my scawney legs as others do and can be tailor fit using the straps on the back of the legs and around the hips.

I wanted these primarily as a cold weather/rain pant or for use off road and they fit the bill perfectly. During the trip, we road across the Florida keys in a brutal rain storm and I was bone dry and comfortable. A few days later while making our way back to Virginia up through Tennessee we spent about 7 hrs in heavy rain and high winds all in traffic on the interstate and again I was perfectly dry and very comfortable. Not even a slight leak through zippers or seams and due to the Gore-Tex, no clamminess. Seriously awesome.

Now back at home in the frozen north I escaped three weeks ago (NB Canada) I found myself wishing I was still riding in the rain through the keys again, so today I fired up my KLR 650 and took off for a quick fix as we can finally see the pavement again here. About 1 degree Celsius and wearing only a pair of jeans underneath, I was good to go (for a short ride) due to the excelllent wind protection again provided by the Gore-Tex.

If you're looking for a pair of pants (and jacket) that will keep you dry, relatively warm (depending on the base or mid layer) and provides really decent ventilation for a waterproof pant in the heat, these are very much worth the money.

Yes they're expensive...but you really do get what you pay for in this instance and if I lost or destroyed (not likely, they're tough as nails) them tomorrow, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair. Same goes for the Jacket, really awesome gear.

RevZilla Store
Fit well in the store, but the store couldn't get me a delivery date on the green pants to match my bike. So, gave up and ordered the last pair from RevZilla.

mike l on Jun 25, 2017
This was a simply choice, with years of trail, enduro and ADV riding KLIM has climbed to the top of my must have gear. I choose their kits above my BMW Rallye 3 their element protection is the best. The fact you don't have to deal with zip in liners or any additional purchases to secure waterproofing it's a no brainer. Oh and because I ordered the jacket as well...

John P on May 27, 2017
I attended the recent BMW Rally in Georgia and everyone I talked to recommended it. I was wearing Revitt sand pants. we saw a lot of rain and my gear required a zip in liner to be installed. That is too much of a hassle and too time consuming. In addition the pants did not dry by the next day.

Brad S on Mar 17, 2017
This pant is pretty bomb-proof and would take me just about anywhere I want to go. My boyfriend has these and insisted that these are the best. I have not been disappointed. I have ridden in temps from 40's to 90's and have been comfortable. Windproof! Waterproof! Good vents! The Super Fabric did its job in a low speed slide...very minor scuffs mostly. I would get these again (unless they come out with a women's version)...but don't think I will need to for a long time.

I just did 10 days of spirited riding along Skyline Drive, Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherohala Skyway, Tail of the Dragon, and Newfound Gap Road (US-441) on my 2007 BMW F800S. It was early July. I needed something that would provide decent crash protection as well as be breathable, vented, and waterproof. It poured down rain, and I stayed dry. The heat baked me, and the humidity attempted to saturate me; however, I stayed well-vented and almost entirely sweat-free. These are great pants.
Have the Badlands jacket and fed up with inserting liners into my BMW Rallye Suit. Jacket is brilliant and works well in Australia at temperatures over 100 F. I'm hoping the Goretex pants do just as good a job.
E S on Jun 17, 2016
This is the pant I was looking for to use for both riding enduro and on the street and dirt roads. It has the best protection features, great venting, fully waterproof, and nice styling. I intend to wear these pants for 4 season riding in all riding conditions for many years.

Badlands Pro pants have been great, and since I purchased the new Badlands jacket, I added the new Badlands pants. Klim gear is very well made, very durable, and with the improvements over the Badlands Pro, I decided to upgrade because next on the bucket list is a two week ride through the Alps.
Richard M on Mar 12, 2016
I have the jacket....have to match!
R O on Mar 11, 2016
Badlands appear to be the best trade off between price, safety, and comfort. Lighter pants would be too cold in cold weather and heavier systems would be too hot in hot weather. However the armor in this set is as good as any on the market. Badlands is also priced well for what it provides.
Erik E on Feb 17, 2016

Simon T on Nov 14, 2015
I wanted pants with armor and abrasion protection. I like that the knee protection is held in place with two velcro straps (which actually work and are comfortable once I got them set up). These are well-vented and all-day comfortable in all temps.

GIANCARLO C on Sep 21, 2015
I missed out on the badlands pro pants to go along with my jacket, but looking at the Badlands Pro quality and safety features, this pant is worth shelling some extra money if it's going to provide me with the same or more protection and safety feeling that I'm getting from the jacket.
Flaco70 on Sep 8, 2015
I already have the rally pro jacket and needed pants to match
for me it was the protection ,vents and 3 layers of gortex and i don't have to carry rain pants as well
these are tough and will last

Do these pants zip to the older Badlands Pro jacket?
Gregory P on Jul 8, 2015
Will the new Badlands pants zip to the Apex jacket?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I talked to Klim direct today [8/10/2015] and they said yes it would.
In jeans, I like a 33 waist x 30 inseam. I got the Size 33 pants, and the waist fits perfect, but I feel like the inseam is an inch or two long. I notice that I can loosen some of the integrated straps and probably fit into a Size 32. If I did that, would I get a shorter inseam, or is the inseam more or less the same between the two sizes?
Jonas A on Jul 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Regarding your question, the inseam will bot be shorter. I am usually a 28 inseam. I have the 30 due to when I sit in a bike when I straddle the 30 fits perfect. Also I purchased a size larger, so I can wear pants underneath if need be. If I stop in a store, mall or going to work I can just downgrade, the larger size lets me do this. Also in the winter if I need extra lare.
what is use of the small clip on the waistband (just left of center)?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Keys , gloves anything you feel like clipping on... Great pants should of gotten a size bigger so leave all tags on when you try on once tags are off will not be returnable bought with jacket love the set
Is it possible / easy to sport protective adventure boots like the Forma Terra UNDER the pants? Always had problems with the older Badland pants due to the gator.
Billy E on Jan 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Possible, yes. Easy? Not really.

I'm not familiar with the Forma Terra boots, however, my Alpinestar Toucans will fit...but barely. I have skinny-bird-legs so keep that in mind. If you have large ham-hocks for calfs you may have a more difficult time. Normally I wear the BMW Rally Pants that have the big open zip. I've thought about slicing the gator and installing a zipper or velcro to facilitate larger boots. However, I can make it work. That being said, when commuting, I normally wear leather combat boot, in part, because they are easier to put on under the badland pants.
Do the Klim Badland pants have loops to attach the Klim Deluxe Suspenders? Several reviews of the suspenders indicate the clasps are very weak.
A shopper on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do. I bought a pair of suspenders and they work great. Pants are heavy but really awesome. Vent well and kept me none dry through a long hard wet ride. I had a zipper pull break after only a few months but Revzilla are all over the warranty issue. Would I buy these pants again? In a heartbeat!!
Do the black/grey version of these have the zipper vent on the thigh? The photos look like that zipper is missing.
Ben D on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are two vent zippers on each thigh. A larger vent zipper on the top, a zippered pocket in the middle and then another smaller vent zipper below that.
Can these pants be worn over street or office clothes?
Edward F on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Wear them over jeans all the time. If you wear loose fit jeans they might bunch up. But you just gotta do the reach up and grab the pant leg trick to pull them down
Are the new "Grey" Badlands pants Black and Grey as opposed to the older model which were more of a dark grey and lighter grey? thanks
Mark S on Oct 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are black and grey. Really sharp look.
What EXACTLY is Klim's standard inseam for the 'regular' fit pant? 30"? 32"? Something else? Thanks in advance.
Christopher S on Sep 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a pair of 34" waist regular Badlands pants. I measured the inseam and they are 34" (again the INSEAM). A few extra comments ... there is no conventional stitched inseam running the length of the pant. The inseam is broken up by the design and material, plus a slight curve to the pant. Never the less the measurement of the crotch to the hem at the foot remains 34". Finally, for a fit reference (if it helps), I am 6'0" and wear a 30" inseam street pant (I have relatively short legs for my height). The Badlands pant is a bit on the long side, a problem with regular shoes (pants drag on the floor) but not with riding boots (Sidi). I did have to adjust the knee padding all the way up to the maximum top position to get them to fall right on my knee. This is my second pair, I owned the earlier version as well, great pant, worth the money.
