Purchased these pants for my boyfriend because he really liked the style and fit but couldn't find them at any local stores in his size; Therefore, I ordered them here. He loved them and they were exactly what we wanted but found out upon trying them on that the hip pads weren't inside the pants like they were on every pair we saw at the store. These were slightly more expensive than the ones we could have purchased in store that included the hip pads so I was confused. While they are only little foam inserts for the hips any extra padding is helpful when riding. Aside from the lack or padding we were happy with the pants design and fit

PANTS ARE GREAT, THEY PROTECT YOU AND ALSO THE ZIPPER VENTS KEEPS YOU COOL ON HOT HUMID DAYS.

I'm 6'4, 170, large-tall size fits great. Inseam has plenty of room to spare, adjustable waist helps give them a perfect fit. Breathe well in mid 80s and humid, kept me warm through some light rain and seemed to repel a light even though they are not strictly waterproof. I do wish they had a zipper at the waist to connect with a jacket.

I bought these pants on Motorcycle Superstore because their stock and delivery-service positions. (The other retailers came up short on stock or delivery options.) I needed pants for a last minute group DS ride, like yesterday, and MS had the inventory and delivery options to meet my unreasonable needs. Now for a comment on the sizing: awesome. I used the sizing tool on Klim's site to determine the best fit. It was spot on. For reference: I wear a size 34/32 Levis 501 and the size 34 Klim pants fit like a glove (err, pair of comfortable jeans). So, sizing and availability aside, what about the pants? They're good. They perform as well as you would expect from a non-bargain pair of riding pants. They're as cool (breathable) as I could imagine DS/dirt pants could/should be, and they accommodate protection. I've ridden in jeans and other (relatively) cheap DS/dirt pants (O'Neal brand recently purchased at a local store). The difference is comfort (think torrents of sweat in the afternoon sun) and protection (option to add armor). Choose these Klim pants for the option of avoiding heat related discomfort (no laughing matter after 2--3 crashes in the dirt), and the option of avoiding pain and long lasting injury (add armor or face the consequences).

If you read the description and watch the video, the Pants look amazing. Its a great concept with lots of versatility. The problem is in the actual fabrication. The zippers are garbage. I read other reviews where there seemed to be problems and thought maybe they were just unlucky. That is not the case. The zippers chosen are very cheap and refuse to operate. The frustrating part is they worked ONCE. That once was enough to put my house key in. When I got home after riding all day I spent 10 mins and tried every trick in the book to open the zipper to no avail. Ended up having to cut into the pocket to get my key. Save your money. Do not recommend

Great pants, would have been 5 stars all the way but there is a seam that will rub the inside of your knee raw if you don't have braces or knee pads on. Other than that, awesome pants especially for summer in Texas. Great venting and good pad/reinforcements on inside of knee.
