Klim Off Road Pant Blowout: 33% off Dakar, Chinook, Mojave, and Baja Pants
Fellow ADV Riders,
KLIM OFF ROAD PANT SALE: 33% OFF
We have been selling, working with, and using Klim Dakar pants since the day they were released to the public back in July 2009. The BOMBERS have logged tons of time in the Dakar, Mojave, Baja, and Chinook offroad pants, in our opinion they are flat-out the best fitting, best made, most rugged off road pants available. They are one of our absolute favorite (and most trouble-free) products, and we have recommended them to squads of our customers with great results.
Now, they are A LOT easier to get.....all four models of Klim offroad pants are 33% off.
Admittedly, we have to occasionally go into selling mode. But this statement is not at all hyperbolic or whiteshoes in any way: these are a really great product at a really rare, absolutely smoking deal.
Why do we like them? Here are a few reasons:
Fit: All four models fit GREAT. They have very excellent patterning with lots of shape and clever placement of stretch panels. They fit well in most any position on or off the bike, even with bulky knee armor. The mark of a good fitting pant (or jacket) is that they fit nearly any body type. This is critical especially above size 36, because that is where you get more variance in body type.
Fabric and Durability: The single best detail about them. Klim uses 840 denier filament yarn REAL CORDURA for the main shell. This is much heavier and more durable than any. other. offroad. pant. No other pant is anywhere close. The pants have a tangible sensation of durability, and this actually extrapolates into real-word use. We have crashed in them, camped in them, hiked in them, sat around on lava rock in them, and rolled around on the ground in them. Truthfully, they last.
Built to a Functional Goal, NOT a Price Point: In a past life, I designed and developed moto gear. We always built to a price point....always. This meant the final stage of development always involved shaving materials and cutting corners to cut the end price. Klim, OTOH, builds to a functional goal (which is why their stuff costs more), which you can clearly see borne out in the huge anti-burn panels on Pahrk's Dakars:
Pockets are big and usable, waist closures WORK, vents are huge and well-placed, lower leg adjustments are easy to use and regulate. An example is the lower leg closure, it adjusts the entire length of the calf, not just at the cuff.
Of course these are simple pants compared to some of the other stuff out there. But they are executed well, and WORK.
Sizing: Sizing is slightly generous. Usually people wear approximately their jeans size, as long as their jeans are cut realistically and not to preserve the male ego. For some help, here are some rough specs:
We have a megaton of experience sizing these. If you need help choosing your size, you can contact us and we will assist.
As I mentioned, Klim offroad pants are one of our favorite products. They are simple, great fitting, highly functional, and super durable. Now, they are a great deal too.
