Klim Dakar Pants
 
I'm was checking out a pair of these pants in my local bike shop. How cold can these pants stand up to? I'm looking for something I will be comfortable in from 10-50 degrees.

Maybe ,with some wind block fleece .

I just bought a pair from an inmate a couple of weeks ago. These should work perfect for that temp range as long as your talking Fahrenheit. I live at 8500 feet in Colorado; I went for a ride a few days ago when it was 20 degrees. I wore smart wool long underwear, a tshirt, and a insulated riding jacket, and was fine. Try them on with some light fleece first.
Klim is having a sale right now; 119.00 on their website.

concur, the big patches of mesh in the crotch flow a ton of air.. I have worn mine down to the high 30's, but I bought some Traverse pants for anything colder than that.

I have a pair that I have been wearing for three or four seasons now. They seem plenty durable. They vent well enough in the summer when you open the front vents. With a pair of long johns, and the zippers closed they do fine in colder weather as well. From a ride back in early December:

+1, I've got the same combo. You'll need a liner of sorts.

+1 on the crotch mesh flows a ton of air.

Yup,same here. The breeze through the Dakar mesh sections is real noticeable. Traverse pants are wind/waterproof.
Ive got a badlands jacket on the way,nice stuff.

I've got the Dakar pants and as was mentioned they are not wind and waterproof, but great for warm weather. I also have the Badlands Jacket and pants which have more armor and are Gore-Tex, but much more expensive. :eek1 If you don't have to ride through rain the Dakar with an underlayer is a nice combo and currently an even greater price.

I have a pair...they are great summer pants. On a chillly morning that wind blows right through the fabric crotch. :vardy

Winter pants with air mesh in the crotch, now THAT's an ADVENTURE ! :D

armor
 
Just started researching Klim pants, is it possible to get knee armor in the pant? Do they have interior pockets for armor?
Thanks

Snowbound 12-29-2012 09:09 AM

There is a thread about knee armor somewhere . I tried ,but it could be better . I ended up getting Thor knee armor .There is more than enough room to wear the pants over the armor .
