Firstgear HT Air Overpants 4.3 5 58 58
Fit well and look good I wear these overpants primarily for commuting to work. I ordered my regular pant size and without the liner they fit well over Dockers or jeans. The leg zips are long enough that I can get them on and off with ease over my boots. I like that there are exterior pockets and separate zips to get into my front pants pockets. I don't anticipate using the liner as I have winter overpants and carry a rain suit if it looks like rain. I think they would be a little snug with the liner in. July 16, 2014
No sweat, excellent air flow, very comfortable. These HT Air overpants work well in warm weather, I have yet to try using them with the liner. The fit is excellent and the pants are very comfortable. When riding I can't even feel the knee armor but when I check it I always find that it is exact where it should be. Fit-wise, I'm 190 lb, 5'9", 30" inseam, wear size 36 jeans and the HT Air 36 Regular fits great without being too baggy. Good pockets, pass-through pockets are handy, no zippers nags on legs or pockets. I'd say the HT Airs were "perfect" except for a few minor complaints. Side zippers are 3/4 length, full length would be better. The mesh lining sometimes hangs up on my boots. Recommended, overall excellent. July 10, 2014
Flow Air These pants flow air, which is what they are designed to do. The velcro adjustments at the waist are great for making the fit work. Two zippers on each leg allowing you to zip down from the top if you want. I do that when stopped for gas or a meal to allow additional air in. The con to these pants are that the seat material is the mesh, not a better abrasion resistant material. So if you go sliding down the road on your rear, it might wear through. Don't plan to ever test it but it is a concern. July 7, 2014
cool...water proof....love it! Measurements are exact! Fits perfectly. Feels cool (temp.) Just putting them on. Feels soft. Just came back from a 1,250 mile trip (round trip) to S.Carolina. It was in high 80's and mid 90'S., and some rain. The over pants was very comfortable and kept me dry. Thanks First Gear July 2, 2014
POOR ARMOR PLACEMENT I've worn these pants almost daily for the past three months. Overall, satisfied with fit and comfort, but the placement of the armor, attached by velcro, is awkward, imprecise and of dubious value in the event it's needed. June 16, 2014
Nice update-still some weak spots. I have been using first gear overpants for summer commute to office for years. I bought these to replace an old worn out pair. Fit is a little tighter than previous cut, but still go over street clothes with ease. Side zipper pulls are much improved, patch pockets don't look as good as old style but they are more functional, and ankle cuffs are a vast improvement. Air flow is still excellent and the best reason to buy these. Only disappointment is the armor. This was a weak spot on the original pair and hasn't really been improved. Hardshell armor is less comfortable than other overpants I use, and the one or two point velcro attachment does not give much confidence in function. I would recommend these if air flow is your biggest factor like it is here in Arizona where it will be 105 today, but be aware of the drawbacks. June 14, 2014
Comfortable Pants These are my first pair of riding pants and I must say I'm very impressed. They fit well over dress pants or jeans. Knee inserts are easily adjustable and comfortable. Pass through pockets are designed for jean type pants with top access pockets. Dress slacks with side access pockets were difficult to reach. Plenty of length, I'm a 33" inseam and the 32s fit fine. I have not used the inner liner so I have no opinion on their how weatherproof they are. Overall they're a quality made, comfortable addition to my riding gear. June 9, 2014
Protection with airflow The fit and protection are great for the price. A little bulky but feel great when riding. Good airflow with the liner out. Good zippers and pockets. Pants look good with the other FG mesh items. June 5, 2014

charles b: Companion to my coat and temperature control Jul 25, 2014
Regina C: Great product. Easy return on the over-pants that didn't fit. Gift for my son going to live in Germany. Gotta keep him warm. Jul 22, 2014
ANDREW H: I like Firstgear stuff, and my size was in stock. I own a pair of HT overpants but they are a little too warm for the hot summertime. Jun 26, 2014
Scott H: Needed a pair and decided to give these a try

P.S. used them several times... Fit perfect and work great.
Mar 26, 2014
Marcel B: Always owned Firstgear products and the quality for the price is top notch. There pants offering the ability to ride when the mornings are cold or damp with the liner and then shed the liner to a mesh pant in the afternoon when it is warm is ideal for my commuting needs. Mar 19, 2014
Joseph W: versatility in variable temperature climate, protection against precipitation elements, firstgear reputation Mar 13, 2014
Russell W E: I chose these because I needed a pair of overpants for protection on my rides. I chose correctly! These pants are good year-round (I live in San Diego). Unfortunately, I had to test them a few weeks ago. A car driver made a right turn from the center lane which gave me the option of eating car or eating ground...I chose ground. But the pants held up and did their job! I walked away without a scratch. Just some bruising where the bike landed on me. Mar 4, 2014
DEAN U: I bought these because I wanted some extra protection for longer travels. Mar 3, 2014
Curtis D: Good reviews for the price. I own some Firstgear gear and know that the quality is good. Jan 4, 2014
Holly K: After doing hours of research on line reading reviews of pants that fit my criteria I choose these. Jan 1, 2014
Chris L: Seems like a good idea for a commuter. I typically wear khakis on my ride to work, but there is no protection there. I hope I can slip these on and off easily over my work clothing. Aug 8, 2013
A shopper asked: What is the difference between the Firstgear HT Air overpant and the Firstgear HT overpant? Dec 25, 2011

Keepiton: Air it mesh fabric construction, and gets water and wind proofness from the thin liner (inside). Without that liner, they breathe almost like you're wearing nothing over your regular clothes (as long as you are moving). The HT gets water/windproofing from the shell material, so any cooling is provided by opening the zippers. However, the HT fabric doesn't hold any moisture like the mesh will when it gets drenched. The HT's liner provides additional warmth. If you already have pants for weather above 70 degrees (or don't wear riding pants in summer), get the HT's. They will be warmer, and a little more convenient for intermittent rain, and full on downpours. Both are very comfortable, and sized as true overpants. Unless you are tall for your weight consider the Short option. I'm 5-9, 180 w/ 35" waist, and the short doesn't drag ground when walking, yet is long enough for riding position. If all your riding is above 50 degrees, or you need pants you will wear mostly in 70+ degree weather, get the Air's. Jan 2, 2012

Christopher C: The waterproof liner blocks the wind let through by the mesh and assuming you are wearing some sort of pants under them you should be fine. I've actually worn them into the 30's for brief periods and been fine. Of course this all depends on the length of the ride, your bikes wind protection and your jacket (if your core is warm you will feel comfortable).

For commuting if you wear the liner and your work pants you should be fine in the 40's.

Mark W: With the liners in these would work fine, I ride a R1200GSA and have no problem using these as overpants down to about 38 degrees - below that you would need a lined pant underneath.

I can not believe how good these are and I'm so glad I did not spend more on another brand. I have worn these for 6 hrs in a downpour and remained dry (temp approx 50 degrees F)

I hope this helps.

Lee H: I've done it, with only a pair of jeans underneath, for a short distance, say 20 minutes. With the liner in it works okay. I haven't tried it yet on longer distances because I haven't been out in weather that cold yet this Fall. Nov 15, 2013

A shopper asked: I was wondering if it's possible to upgrade the hip pads in the pants to something CE rated Nov 28, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Rook604: The armor plates themselves are in a sewn covering (the can be removed from the covering through a velcro slit in the material) and the covering is what attaches to the velcro of the shell. So, I would thinkg you could either replace the armor plates in the covering if the sizes are similar to CE rated armor, or you could just swap it out if you had CE rated armor that already had velcro to attach to the shell.

RevZilla: We are unaware of any current level of CE rating for hip armor that has been developed yet. However, you can still upgrade the hip pads in this pant if desired. The pocket for the hip pads in this pair of pants can accommodate either a SAS-TEC or Forcefield replacement pad. Nov 28, 2012

JonERod: My pant size is 40WX34L to 40WX35L and the regular 42W HT Air fit me fine and have enough length even without boots. The Long version might be a good option if you plan on doing a lot of cold weather riding. May 21, 2012
