Mark K on Sep 30, 2017
High quality pants that I use for adv rides. I've worn these in 90 degree weather and on-road the vents keep them comfortable. Off-road the same. Of course hot when you stop, just don't stop or stop riding. I'm a female and the fit was perfect for me too. I like color myself and selected the red one. Color is good folks; good vis for added safety. RevZilla is the best!

Because, quite simply, they are the best.
R A on Jul 3, 2017
Very comfortable. Works until the temps into the 90's. Then I switch to mesh pants. With i good pairs of bicycling tights under them ridable temps extend down into the 20's. Good choice for multiday rides unless you are headed into the deep south in the summer.
Michael G on May 29, 2017
I own a pair already and they have been outstanding riding pants.

Hopefully long enough. I am 6'7" . OMG I need to check the order to make sure i ordered over the boot style.
DAVID C on Sep 12, 2016
The have been great 4 season commute pants in Charlotte, NC. I just rode the Colorado BDR in them. If I only had one pair of pants to wear I'd pick these. One item of note - the crotch is well ventilated. Great for summer, can be shocking in a cold winter rain.

What is the inseam difference between the 34 reg and 34 tall?
Eric B on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, but I cannot answer this because I'm short and did not purchase the 34 inseam! They are great pants!!! You will love them!
Can these pants be used for cold weather riding as well? Say 20-30F? I would like to save a little $$ by buying one pair of pants. I was thinking that I could use over fleece pant but didn't know if they were fully vented or not. Thanks.
A shopper on Jan 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Remember the rule of thumb is to subtract 20 degrees from the ambient temperature to equate passing through the air on a bike - your 20 - 30F becomes 0 - 10F.

I ride in Colorado and Utah (week long adventure rides with camping when I can) where the temps can change quite a bit throughout the day and night. Given my budget range (no $600 pants for me) the Klim Dakar pants have been great but there are limits. Alternating between athletic type briefs for the warmer days and a pair of mid weight thermals for cooler weather has helped to extend the Dakars usable range. When I do ride in 20 degree weather what I've got on top has more to do with my overall warmth then the pants - the liner in my Tourmaster plus a heavy weight thermal and a balaclava under the helmet really helps to keep my heat in.

I have had some long, very cold rides heading back home on the slab after a week in the woods, at pace for many hours nothing I have is keeping me warm enough.

Semi technical trail riding from camp site to camp site over the course of a number of days (in cold weather) the Klims have been good as long as I've got the thermals underneath.

The main vents have long zippers so regulating heat/air flow is pretty easy. The stretch panels on the inner thighs will let a certain amount of air migrate through, you have no control over them. That being said it's a relatively small surface area and the articulation/flexibility of the panels really adds to the pants comfort.

Good luck and happy riding!
Can you please put up a video for this pant, Along with which brand - CE knee guard can be used along or fits well ?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I'd suggest you wear armor that attaches more directly to you than rides in the pants for these. They are a loose cut, intended to go over protective gear or knee braces. That loose fit makes them comfortable, you can get air circulating, and get them over armor - but will allow any knee armor to shift easily away from where you're trying to protect in the event of a fall.

Under these I wear the Forcefield Zeus knee armor, and quite like them. Though there's lots of other options for armor that is worn more directly on the body. If you expect to be in an area with a lot of rocks, like desert west or mountains vs. more muddy/woods terrain you might focus on armor with a hard exterior layer to help deflect any falls on pointy rocks vs. the softer stuff like Forcefield makes.

But as an aside, the Zeus knee armor works well. I put it to the test at Cornerspin when I went down hard at one point.
Can I order a size up (40) and hope to be able to wear jeans under them?
Matthew H on May 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure its possible however I don't feel that it will very comfortable. You will still have to take your boots off to get the pants off. The pants are oversize as they allow room for knee braces. They are very comfortable with using Alpinestar liners or Under Armour liners. The styling allows you to be comfortable while lounging around with an adult beverage. I just finished a 3 week trip in mainland Mexico using the Klim Mojave Pants, the vented version of Dakar Pants. 5300 miles of asphalt and dirt speeds up to 110 miles, sea level to 10000 feet, temperature was 55-95 degrees. I was very comfortable the entire time, 2 of the other 3 riders wore the same pants. We were riding KTM 950/990. Cheers Mark
Does the "standard" (over the boot) version have wide enough legs to fit over motocross boots, or only lighter road boots? Are they fairly resistant to wearing through where boot uppers contact the frame, or do the heat shields protect well against that?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes & Yes. I ride ADV mostly off-road and I wear Gaerne SG12 motocross boots. The opening is plenty big and the leather heat shields work well. I'm a huge fan of KLIM products and you can't go wrong with these Dakar pants!
Is there a side zipper on the over the boot style that goes high enough to allow you to remove the pants without taking your boots off? (I know these aren't over pants but I sometime where light shorts under)
A shopper on Mar 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There's Velcro on the inside. It goes up to about top of your calf. I still have to remove my riding boots to take off pants. I also wear a size 14 boot. That might make a difference. I love the pants though.
Can these be worn under the boot???
A shopper on Sep 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I don't see they couldn't be worn under your boot. I have not worn them that way. They are a great product. Good luck!
I wear 34 x 34 Levi's jeans. Which Klim pants size would be OK for me?
Guillermo M on Jun 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 32 tall

I wear 32x34 levis
30tall fits me similarly (size wise)
Are the suitable for road rides? Abbrasion resistance level given I ride my GS via highways at 100kph+ for extended distances before going 'off road'?
A shopper on Jan 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These are suitable for road/off-road riding. The soft jointed sections breathe well if it's warm but this also lets in rain and water from large puddles and stream crossings.
Whats the best way to wash these? I have a cat--that wont be around for too much longer--that peed on mine and I want to wash them (even though most of the liquid beaded up and off...)
Andy A on Dec 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Use some Natures Miracle stain & odor remover or Zero Odor pet stain remove on them Spray it let it soak in then wash them in some luke warm water on a gentle cycle with a gentle detergent. Gentle Spin cycle them let them hang to dry or use a dryer on a low heat. Hope this helps. We have 4 cats and have use the above products with great results
