pants are rock solid


I have used these pants twice for a total of around 400 miles.They are well made and fit pretty true to size. I wear a 32 and bought a 32, i have a short inseam and there are no short inseam options, that would be nice to have as that is my only complaint, there is a little bit too much fabric in the leg and it feels a bit bulky, i suppose its part of the armor system,however, while in a riding position, they are very comfortable, which i remind myself this is the position i will be in 90% of the time i wear them.I enjoy the construction and colors. The vent system include an exhaust vent on the back of thigh area, brilliant idea as it really works. I look forward to riding many miles in these pants.

The Carlsbad pants from KLIM is first class. Very comfortable and well ventilated. I also have the Carlsbad Jacket and this is a great set of gear ! I definitely reccomend the KLIM Carlsbad gear !

Carlsbad gear is a WINNER

I have owned these pants for 4-month and they are GREAT. Worn them in sand, dirt, fishing, cold 30 degrees to 113 degrees with no issues. Pocket are get, easy access and you can really stuff them. Also wish the front zipper would allow easier access to go to bathroom, as when you unzip, there is folded material. I am needing to purchase suspenders as using both the side adjusting velcro does not make the waist comfortable, as the pants want to fall downward. I have NOT tried zipping the pants & jacket together. I also bought the Carlsbad jacket recently and if it Only had collar hooks for both side like they offer in their Altitude touring version as this would allow more air to flow into chest area.

Great Jacket & Pants for the PNW


Since purchasing the KTM 1090 AdvR, I’ve been riding with the Carlsbad Jacket and Pants. Both have kept me warm and dry during the cool foggy mornings driving home for work, couple of them I would have sworn it was raining due to the fog being so think. But I have had the pleasure of getting caught in the rain as well. The droplets seem to bead up in the fabric and stay there, thirty minutes later I was still dry and warm. With that being said I should note that I have yet to wear a thick or heavy base layer, a long sleeve dry wicking athletic shirt and shorts underneath with some thicker long socks. In my book they pasted the test and I would recommend this gear setup to anyone.

The Goldilocks of adventure gear, not too hot and not too cold!


Excellent pants, completely waterproof and reasonably light. I bought them to do the K.A.T and they worked very well. Weather was from the mid 40s into the 80s and very, very wet. I did the hard sections this year on a Beta 430 RR-S and managed to end up on the ground a lot. Pants kept me injury free despite my best efforts although I did manage to finally hole them by having the header burn a hole through the knee. (not due to any short coming in the pant). Klim gave me the option of repairing the old pair or buying new at a generous discount. I did both so now I have a pair for throwing down the road and a pair for Sunday best. I am 6'2" 190lbs and wear 33" waist jeans. I bought the 34R pants and they fit perfectly. I wouldn't want a heavier pant for the amount of off-road I do and found the Carlsbad pant and Jacket an ideal compromise.

Awesome pants!


I am 6 ft tall, about 185 lbs, with long arms and long legs. I ride a 2018 Honda Africa Twin. I bought these pants in 34 Tall. The fit is a little on the big side, but that's okay considering my riding apparel. These pants kept me dry in the rain while riding on the highway on my way to a rally in Central Washington. The 34 waist allows me to layer up in cold weather and it accommodates my Leatt upper body protecter with kidney protection. While the pants come with D30 knee pads, I usually remove them and wear Leatt knee braces instead. The pants fit over the knee braces without issue. Another plus is the D30 hip armor, which I never remove. The pants also fit over my Gaerne SG-12 boots without issue. I did buy the Klim suspenders to help hold them up. I would definitely buy these pants again.
