Looks interesting, ride in temps down to -15degC (5degF) and up to 25degC (80degF)...but then I just wear mx pants.

Anyway, several guys recommended Klim Traverse pants so bought it but really disappointed. Fit and comfort is great but they take no abuse. After a couple of trips I had holes, tears and burnt through fabric down to membrane just very briefly in contact with exhaust. And this was on easy trips without crashes or anything.

So when wear them out, I'll but some more rugged stuff...will come back. Is it space for protective shorts under?

Oh, and those videos where amazing! Only done offroad couple of years but been lucky enough to ride in Wales, Spain, Italy and South Africa (besides Norway but not really allowed riding outside roads here). All fantastic places but Utah looks like it was made for enduro! Are there companies renting bikes and doing guided tours?
