Klim Torrent
« on: September 27, 2018, 12:14:36 am »
Well after riding in jeans for a while  :??: I think I have successfully replaced my riding pants.
What I settled on is a pair of Klim Torrent over pants it took a while after I decided they were what i wanted as no one had my size in stock, but after a couple weeks of backorder Cycle Gear and UPS  came through.  :)  I settled on the Torrent because 1 I commute so I need an easy on and off over pant. 2 I needed water proof as I ride all season with exception of ice and snow.
I just got them today, but I will let you all know how I like them after I have a chance to put them through their paces.

Well so far not sure I am that impressed, part of that may be that with the price and Klim's bring your own base and mid layers what you get seems sparse. Quality seems great but the knee armor is in the wrong place. Klim claims that the armor is adjustable but no matter how I do it the knee armor is way high and rides to the inside and this is with pant legs that are just a tad long. I am going to go in to Cycle Gear  and see what they say. As far as water proofing it is looking as if that will be put to the test this week. Ventilation not sure the 3/4 split legs have a double zipper loving the option of opening it from the top but that seems to me like that wouldn't hold thing where they need to be for protection in a slide, just doesn't seem safe.
These are at the low end price wise of Klim offerings and I think it shows :??:
