Bought them new.
Price was high.
Waited til they went on sale at end of season.

Zippers have held up great
Seams have held up great.
Stayed dry for a long time.
Fit well.
Don't crawl up on me.
They re-adjust fairly well on their own when I stand up.

They could be just a bit longer in the legs. BUT, that's just my body type.


Now the butt leaks a lot.

Other than that I've been warm, dry and have liked my Freeride pants quite a bit.

I'll consider then again when I buy pants in the future.

The hubby's and mine are approximately the same age. I'm in the Men's size Small/Tall so I could get the leg length I need.

They are expensive, so I did shop for the best deal.

Same experience......they've held up well in all areas. The hubby has ripped his in a couple of places (his own fault). I've sewn those and covered sewn areas with sno-seal wax.

Seeing some bottom leakage as well, so purchased some ReviveX Wash-in Repellent Concentrate, and some spray on due to recommendations I've seen about this. I'll update this once I've used this and seen how it works.

Been very happy overall with these.

Sandy :)

Have same set and am happy with them also..but do have to wash them every so often wich helps repellency..something about keeping Gore Tex clean.
Did some R&D for Klim for what is there new material and was very impressed so may upgrade in the future but have no need yet.

Update....They DID warranty them.

Sort of. They gave $$ credit to a new pair.
