Firstgear HT Air Overpants

The Firstgear HT Air Overpants are great for those days when the heat is on or there is a chance of rain. The removable waterproof liner can be used as a stand-alone pant when you've reached your destination. Large mesh panels provide great airflow, and 2 pass-through openings allow access to the liner or rider's base layer. The long zippers on the sides of the HT Overpant make them easy to put on or take off, even when you keep your boots on. CE approved armor in the knees is adjustable for a custom fit. Two front pockets hold items for handy access.

Excellent product at a decent price
90% of my riding is commuting with weekend rides in the canyons on the twisties. I ride a Hayabusa and was a little worried they might bind a bit while in the normal riding position. No problems at all. Also, I'm 6'4" and 210 lbs. It is EXTREMELY difficult to find pants that fit my long inseam. Most other brands look like I'm going clam digging when I put them on. The pant leg cuffs rest just below the ankle while standing with the knee pads just at the bottom of my knee caps. When in the riding position, the cuffs rest at the ankle and the knee pads are exactly in the right position.
I don't know that I would wear the liner as a "destination pant" as the write-up claims. I think it would just be strange hanging out in nylon pants with a zipper running down the leg, but the option is there for you folks who think that might be cool. But, with the liner installed, the pants are indeed wind and water-proof. Take out the liner (it only takes a minute or two) and these pants breathe extremely well. I can even wear shorts under these to head to the beach and not worry about road rash. The pants are quick on and off with my boots on since the side zipper is so long. And the construction seems spot on so far.
They fit true to size. I wear a 36-36 pair of jeans and ordered the 36-Tall overpants. They fit just right over my pants with just a smidgen of adjustment on the waist pull tabs. The pass-through pockets work great if you are wearing jeans. If you are wearing a uniform or slacks with side entry pockets, you'll work a little bit to get anything out of them...but it still works.
The reflective tabs are low key until you hit them with lights. They reflect EXTREMELY well. The waist snap and velcro closures at the cuffs are also reflective.
Overall, these are a great pair of over pants that are designed just right to be easy to get on and off so you can always dress for the slide.

Long for Tall People and Great Quality
I wanted to post this so maybe I could help out a fellow long legged rider who may be in the market for a pair of overpants. I'm 6'2, 220lbs. I typically wear between a 38 and 40 Waist. I wanted something to wear over jeans/khakis, but wasn't bulky and long enough to go past my ankles when seated on the bike. Went with a 38T and they fit great. With the liner in, they fit nicely over a pair of khakis or jeans. Out of bag, the knee protectors fall just below my knee. I'll probably adjust them to get a better fit.
Length is perfect for me. Most all of my riding gear is Firstgear because they provide a Tall as an option when ordering.

Perfect pants for hot weather and tall people
I'm 6'8" and Firstgear is one of the few manufacturers who make stuff for us freaks, The pants fit great. Really like the air flow and the built in armor. It fit perfect right out of the box. Pockets are great and access to pant pockets underneath overpants is nice. Haven't needed to use the wind liner yet so I can't comment on that. Definitely recommend these pants.

Good ventilation & protection
Had a chance to wear these in the heat and rain on my R1200RT. I had considered the regular HT pants as well but wanted more airflow. With the liner out is what I use the most. The fairing on the RT is enough to keep most of the rain off unless I'm at a standstill. The liner pants pack down small enough that it lives in my tank bag and I'll slip them on as needed (I skip zipping them to the outer mesh pant and have had no problems). I also used these in a torrential downpour on a naked BMW R1200R (Dealers loaner) for about 100 miles highway/backroads. Short of a dirtbike I couldn't have had less protection! These combined with my Kilimanjaro jacket kept me dry and somewhat warm (it was 50 after all). My only complaints are with the knee armor. It needs more room for adjustability. Mine tend to rotate inward as I sit on the bike, leaving the middle to outside of my knee exposed, which in my experience is an area that is likely to need protection when you and the bike depart company. I'm going to add velcro to adjust this to my taste. The knee armor is also very easy to catch with your boots when pulling them on or off. I found if I rotate my foot to the outside I don't snag it and peel it off the velcro.

Great fit, comfortable, good protection
New rider here so not a lot of experience.

I am really happy with these pants. I'm 6'3" with a 42" waist and was worried that they wouldn't be right, but the fit is perfect.

Very comfortable while riding. The protection slides into the right places when in riding position.

My guess is that they will be too hot in the summer. My FirstGear jacket that I am also very happy with vents really well, and my guess is this will too, but it is still to heavy in the summer.

Great All-Season Overpant With Bad Liner Snaps
This overpant is tremendously flexible. With the liner removed, it flows a lot of air and keeps you comfortable in hot weather up to 99 degrees F (above that you're better off blocking airflow). Put the liner in and wear a base layer, you're good to go for 30 minute rides down to 25 degrees F and longer rides around 45 degrees F. The front pockets are excellent, the full-length side zippers are great, the construction and seams are very well done. Where the overpant falls short is in the area of the snaps that retain the liner. They are very cheap and poorly made and break off easily. The swaged post is very weak and pulls out of the hole when trying to unsnap. I took mine to a tailor to have new snaps sewn in, but whenever another one breaks I am resorting to safety pins.

Fit small
I normally wear a 42" waist and I am 6'4". I purchased the 42 tall and I found the waist to be very snug, and I can only wear them with very thin pants or shorts. The length is meant for someone that is 6'6" as they are very long for me. The pants are very well designed otherwise and breathe well.

good pants
i like these pants, they seem to be very sturdy and over all well made. wearing them over other pants is comfortable. if a little baggy. the mesh is a heavy open weave cloth. i wore them today in 80 degree and 90% humidity with shorts underneath and the wind blew through them as thoe they weren't there. i not sure what type of nylon they are made of but it seems to be extremely sturdy. i really like the pass-through pockets and the large front pockets. the front pockets are easy to get into and hold a good amount of stuff.

there are a few things i am not happy with. the snap on waist band does not hold, every time i bend over it opens. it is not worth sending them back for a replacement. instead i am bring the pants to a tailor to have an old fashioned button installed. my other complaints are the hip pads blow big time, they are thin pieces of foam pad. completely and utterly worth less. they have already been replaced. and the velcro holding the knee pads in place in general is excellent and gives you plenty of options for moving the pads vertically but is limited for moving them horizontally, another half inch of velcro on either end would fix this. this made it a little tricky for me to get them placed just right. not that big of a deal thoe. this too will be fixed when i bring them in for the button.

i would buy these pants again and feel over all they are a good buy, with a few minor adjustments.

Competent, well-designed
The long side zips make these overpants as convenient as overpants ought to be. Construction seems robust. Airflow is good, as good as I could ask for in a pant that's also supposed to protect me sliding down asphalt. Pocket design is excellent. These overpants do all the little things well, and that makes them worth the price.

These pants offer abrasion resistance and weather protection. Don't look for heavy, armor-like protection. The lateral hip-pads are kind of slight, but I'm sure you'll be glad they're there if you land or slide on them. It's a little extra protection, that doesn't intrude on fit or feel. You might easily forget they're there.

When it comes to the knee pads, my advice is to regard them as basically useless. The pants are baggy in the knee and the pads are not likely to be in position at impact. If you're lucky and they are, they will almost certainly slide out of position as soon as they contact the road. A simple velcro cinch at the knee would go a long way toward making those pads relevant - I thought about sewing one on and may do it eventually.

Definitely OVER pants
I'm 5'-9", 180 w/ 35" waist, and ordered the 36 Short. Liner in, it will easily fit over my pants, and the waist is high enough to secure above my belt, belt clipped smart phone, etc. The velcro side tabs will allow snugging the waist up enough to walk around with the pants up this high, but I usually just secure, and hop on the bike. The side zippers are plenty high enough to allow easy on and off over full size shin guarded riding boots, and the velcro band at bottom allows snugging out wind coming up the leg. I've ridden on plenty of 40 degree mornings, and simple khakis are enough for the 30 minute commute. On a 70 degree day, and without the liners, the pants breathe well enough to prevent the khakis from losing their crease on that same commute. The knee pads want to rotate in toward the bike, but I've been readjusting when I get on, and they seem to be molding to my knee and I'm having to adjust less often. I haven't had any significant rain to test, but they do get heavy as they get wet.

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.

versatility in variable temperature climate, protection against precipitation elements, firstgear reputation
Joseph W on Mar 13, 2014
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.

What is the difference between the Firstgear HT Air overpant and the Firstgear HT overpant?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I was wondering how the HT Air holds up in colder weather around 40 degs in the morning?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 2006 ST1300,85K,Had these pants for a while now,Rode home recently at 27° with liner in and levis no problem,I do usually have my heated vest and gloves on in these conditions,I commute 70 miles a day from 108° to single digits,with no problem,40° shouldn't be a problem,The outer pants snap hasn't worked since day one, the slightest pressure and it comes undone,I just use the adjacent hook type latch and it holds Ok.You can get in and out of them with your boots on easily,just lube the zippers occasionally and your good to go,also you will need to replace the hip pads,might as well have just stuffed paper towels in their,Hope this helps.

I was wondering if it's possible to upgrade the hip pads in the pants to something CE rated
A shopper on Nov 28, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Is the seat of these 250 denier mesh only or is there some extra reinforcement?
A shopper on Jul 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The seating area of the Firstgear HT Air Overpants is a Mesh-Tex construction and does not have any additional reinforcement.
If I didn't want to wear this an overpant, how many sizes down do I need to go?
Tyler A on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm a big guy. Wear a 42" waist. I often wear just the shell with a pair of light shorts in the summer. I feel they are big then, but i still don't see that i could go down in waist size by a lot. I could probably get away with the 40" waist if that was all i wanted to do with them, but i feel that with the liner thay are still only marginally too large.
What is the true inseam of a size 34 Tall. I noticed on the video it talks about a change this year, but the Firstgear webstire does not acknowledge this change. Could you please verify what the tall inseam is for a 34 waist. Thanks for your help, and keep up the GREAT work.
A shopper on Apr 27, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hi,
Which D3O knee & hip pads do you recommend with these pants ?
A S on Dec 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I use the stock pads and they work for me. I haven't thought of replacing them with aftermarket pads yet.

Cheers
Will the connecting zipper on these pants work with the RevIt Ignition 2 jacket?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2012
BEST ANSWER: No, you will not be able to zip the Firstgear HT Air Overpants and the RevIt Ignition 2 jacket together as each brand has its own proprietary zipper system.
