Well made, a bit pricey for their size, and work best with the Wolfman racks.

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.

Second pair of these I've had and both have been well made, sized accurately, and in general, live up to the high standards of Klim products. Not really designed for hot or cold weather but temps in between they work great. Knee pads aren't up to a lot of protecting but if you ride off-road you already knew that.

Good venting hot weather jersey. I'm a size 40R, 6'0", 170lbs. and the med. fits perfect over a pressure suit. As some others have said the neck/head opening is a bit tight but manageable.

Good bang for the buck. I've run through several of these 705's and although some experience tread issues, I've not had any problems. I will say the 705 on the rear is fine but steering feels slow/heavy with a 705 on the front (Tiger and Wee Strom)....

I have a 32" waist and I bought the 32" Rangers. They are snug as an over-pant w/the liner in and perfect without. I've had some high-end pants (Klim and Aerostich) and these are every bit as good for slightly more than half the price.

I have a 40" chest and the small was the right fit-snug w/o being tight. This vest is the difference between cold and comfort. I routinely ride in the teens and this coupled with the gloves is the ticket.

A great product for those cold hands. Large fits my 9.5" hands nicely. Instant warm as soon as they are plugged in. I've had numerous pairs of heated grips and these gloves are a level above the comfort provided by the grips. I look forward to the single digits I sometimes ride in.

Comfortable right out of the box. No break in needed. Warm without being too hot in the Summer heat; haven't had the opportunity to Winter test them. I've ridden in a few showers and so far they've kept the water out. They seem to be about as protective as the TCX Matrix if that helps (typical for a touring type boot).
Pros Comfortable
