With all the talk about Gaerne's sizing differences compared to other manufacturers, I was unclear as to which size would fit my feet. With a half sized wide foot I was getting advice from some to go up a half size and and others to go down a half size, but all were correct to state that the Gaerne SG10 will handle a wide foot. I ordered both the size 10 and the size 11 for my 10-1/2 EEE feet. The 10 was long enough for my toes to move in the toe box, but fit too snug in the width to allow for thicker socks. The 11 was comfortably wide enough for my feet even with thicker socks or my klim covert goretex liner system and also had ample room in the toe box for moving my toes. As my riding style is more along the adventure off road than MX racing or enduro I chose the larger 11 for the comfort.
On another note, I have had a few MX style boots and these are by far the most comfortable out of the box boots I have worn. The buckles are buttery smooth to operate and will not remove hunks of finger when taking your boots off at the end of the day.
I will post another review after I have put a few miles and dings in them.

I purchased these to be used as a thermal mid layer between street clothes and a motorcycle riding outer layer.
These run slightly tight so I would recommend going two sizes up if you intend to wear them over another pair of pants. I have a 38 in waist and am wearing an XXL in these to fit over my jeans. The material in the pant stretches so this size fits me well as a base layer also.
The material is a high tech fabric that is thin enough to not bulk, but insulating and breathable enough to make a big difference.

 Klim Dakar Pants
Klim Dakar Pants
The ride started with a nip in the air. Thirty miles later it is sunny and warm. Like a chameleon, the Dakar Pant, with its controlled ventilation chassis, changes to meet the demands of any condition with little adjustment. The Dakar can adapt with the help of 20 inch mesh-lined zippered thigh vents and a mesh-lined rear leg vent. Adaptation does not come at the cost of performance and durability. The Dakar Pant is built with TNP heat and abrasion- resistant leather panels on the inner legs, Cordura fabric for strength and highly reinforced knees and seat. Be ready to take the lead no matter the condition with the Dakar Pant. Features Controlled ventilation chassis Designed to be worn over the boot 2 dual adjustable 20 thigh mesh-lined vents with dual zipper heads Ballistic panels in high-wear areas Removable hip knee pads 840 denier Cordura fabric 1,682 denier nylon in seat knees Polyester ribbed stretch crotch gusset above knee seat area to allow pant to move with rider Adjustable velcro cuff closure Adjustable pant cuff opening design allows rider to access adjust knee brace, sock and boot velcro waist adjusters Auto-lock high durability YKK zippers Storm flap on front fly Mesh-lined rear leg vent Two large volume side leg velcro cargo pockets Wicking polyester mesh lining with lycra stretch panels knee brace reinforced Cordura inner knee panels Liner stretch panels match stretch panels on shell of pant so liner moves with shell of pant High-back self adjusting elastic yoke to help prevent plumber crack dirt scoop High quality embroidered graphics Reflective industrial-grade 3m piping accents Improved high-tenacity stitching thread with double-stitching bar-tacks DWR coated to shed water D-ring FABRICS 1,682 denier ballistic, nylon in seat and knees, 840 denier, Cordura in shell, TNP heat and abrasion, resistant leather, mini rib knit fabric LINER lycra

This gear was purchased for long distance adventure off road travel.
Craftsmanship and design is outstanding. Material is very substantial and abrasion resistant as well as comfortable for long rides.
Fit provides flexibility in crotch, hips and knees and sizing runs true.
Venting design on front of thighs is easy to open and close on the fly, provide much needed ventilation in hot weather and a good seal when it is cold.
Cargo pockets are only large enough to fit a paperback book into and do not bellow, but close securely include a leashed hook in right pocket. Sadly there are only the two cargo pockets for keeping your stuff.
Waist cinching happens with velcro pull tabs on either side of hip allowing for secure fit adjustment on the fly.
Knee and hip armor are not as substantial as I had imagined they would be for off-road gear, but do not hinder flexibility and are removable so you can easily replace them if you are an animal.
The lower and inner pant legs are heat resistant leather and grippy and have a wide and adjustable velcro closure that can be adjusted tight or loose on the fly as well.
Overall I am very happy with the Klim Dakar Pants. The price is worth the kit.
