Very good pants for the money For the outer pants, ordering your waist size is sufficient. The problem is the inner rain liner runs tight, at least for me. I can make it work and I suppose it needs to be pretty tight to keep the water out. I live in Phoenix and these are perfect for Phoenix winters (> 40 degrees). Wearing just the outer pants you might get a little chilly, but if you put the rain liner in, it'll block a lot of wind and you'll stay pretty warm. January 26, 2015
Excelent garment. I have worn these pants in 40 to 50 deg F., with the rain liner installed. With and without rain. They worked great. They kept me dry and just warm enough. I'm sure they will be fine in hot weather without the rain liner installed. I also think they look and feel great with jeans as a base layer. December 22, 2014
Exactly what I was looking for I needed summer riding pants for hot weather, but wanted an optional liner for spring and fall. So far these fit the bill. Even with jeans (rain liner out) cooling is reasonable at up to 80 Deg. Wasn't sure about ordering pants on line, but after sending my size information to Revzilla customer support and getting feedback from Drew Snyder at Revzilla I went ahead. The pants fit exactly as Drew said they might. Very happy with the results. Stats: 205 lbs, 30 inch inseam, 36 inch waist Ordered 38, short. Knee pads are slightly low standing when in their highest position, just right sitting. September 29, 2014
Very goood product! Looks like high quality. I have not taken the rain pants off yet, because of the coolness. Overall good, all these type of products seem baggy until you are on the motorcycle. September 22, 2014
Better than expected Durable construction, easy to pull on/off over work/casual clothes. Only con I have seen so far: bought on the larger side to allow for quicker removal over clothes/shoes in the parking garage - knee armor rests too low even with adjustment, so I need to add some more velcro adjustment on the interior surface. In retrospect, I probably didn't need to size up like I did, but the added room does make them a bit more comfortable when the liner is in. Overall, I would buy these again. September 8, 2014
Good Textile Pants These are good pants, I've been through several trying to find the right ones. The zipper up to mid leg is by far the best feature. These are sturdy and comfy, everything I need. August 4, 2014
What was needed The sizing is true to pant's size, but if you have some rolls on your side then the liner will be a tight fit because the pant is an over pant and buckles around the stomach. Yet the liner does not need to be zipped or buckled in the front because it will be attached to the out pant by a zipper in the back. Overall it is comfortable and made me realize I need to lose those rolls on my side. July 29, 2014
Exactly what I needed I bought these for winter (-5C/20F here) so I can put them over my work clothes in the morning and they do a great job keeping the wind out with the rain liner in. I havent had a chance to test in summer yet and thankfully I havent had an accident to test the actual protection but the feel like they would do a good job. July 28, 2014

TIMOTHY L: Very hard to find motorcycle pants when you have 36 inch legs Dec 7, 2014
Rodney I: I have an older pair of these pants and I have worn them so much they are thread bear... Whether over my shorts in the summer or over my long pants in the winter they do great and with the water proof liner its a rain pant as well... Sep 8, 2014
Andrew M: Fit. Available tall size. Prior experience. Sep 3, 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.

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

Johan G: 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. Mar 3, 2015

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
