Klim Switchback Cargo Pants + 5% Champion Caschback!
The Klim Switchback Cargo Pants are Klim’s casual pants answer for those looking to mix their touring and dual sport riding with their time off the bike.
They offer a great deal of clever features and slim design that make them great for touring and other casual uses. Made of a tough nylon outer shell, and with hip and knee armor designed for ventilation and flexibility, this pant is engineered for the flexibility of a technical motorcycle garment. Klim have even designed the pants so that you can easily remove the protectors without having to take the pants off.
The Klim Switchback Pants will be competing with the Dainese Tonale D-Dry and the Revit Sand 3 Pants.
The Klim Switchback Cargo Trousers use a nylon chassis with Klim Karbonite micromesh along the front of the pants for ventilation. This means that they will be both abrasion resistant and offer intelligent ventilation.
Though they aren’t waterproof, they have been given a water-resistant treatment. The pants are prEN 17092-3 Class AA certified and when folded the cuffs will also show 3M Scotchlite reflectivity.
For protection, the pants come with CE Level 1 D3O LP1 vented armor in the hips and knees. One of the best features are the pants integrate smart pockets for the armor that allows you to remove the armor without removing the pants.
To open the them, you simply have to undo the velcro and slide the protector out. The protector is vented for better airflow and that it’s also very flexible. Inside the pants, you can also adjust where the protectors are so you can get better protection.
These will be a comfortable pair of pants thanks to the stretch panels integrated into the pants as well as having pre-articulated in the leg. Starting at the top, the pants are fastened with the classic button and zipper, though it can’t be adjusted, so you’ll need to run a belt through those loops.
The main adjustability features on these pants will come in the cuff where you get a double zipper system combined with buttons. These will make it easier to put these pants on, as well as fitting them over your motorcycle boots.
These pants come with two front thigh cargo pockets, one zippered and the other buttoned, two hand pockets up above, and two pockets in the back that are also zippered. For ventilation, you have two zips on either side of the thigh that will blend in nicely when they’re closed, while also letting in plenty of air once you’re riding.
The Klim Switchback Cargo Pants are a pair of pants that have prioritized both style and practicality. While they come with a simple everyday style, they offer a lot more in terms of protection than your ordinary pair of style-focused cargo pants.
