Firstgear HT Air Overpants 4.3 5 48 48
Good pants, waterproof for 2 yrs I really like the pants for the cooler weather. Very comfortable and easy on and off. They were waterproof and kept me very dry in the rain for 2 years. Now they leak like crazy and I get soaked, I have to use another pair of cheap rain pants over top of the overpant to stay dry. I do not recommend these pants for staying dry in the long run. April 12, 2014
Good Pants, but Baggy In terms of waist and length, these fit right on, with a little bit of adjustment available. They are a little baggy through the legs, so they aren't the most stylish and you probably aren't going to want to wear them off the bike. The plus side of this is that the pants fit very easily over whatever you're wearing. With the high side zippers, these pull right over a thick pair of jeans. If you live in an area with mild winters, the liner pushes these to year-round pants. Due to the bagginess, I was worried that the pads would slide around too much, but they generally stay in place.

Great everyday overpant This is my second pair of FG overpants. My first pair lasted 5+ years and I wore them almost every day for work commuting. I expect the second pair to serve me just as well. Still getting used to one different feature between old and new. My old pair of HT's had waterproof exteriors with minimal venting. The new ones have great exterior venting with a removable waterproof liner. During on and off rain days, it's a minor annoyance to put the liner in and take them out but I'm learning to deal with it. Only thing that prevented me from giving an "Excellent" overall rating. March 3, 2014
Extremely versatile Just to start these pants have a removeable water proof liner, that right there is half the reason these pants are worth it. When the liner is in it really helps with keeping you warm on those cool days. When the liner is out these pants are like they are barely even there. They are baggy (which I like) and that helps get them on and off easy. Before you buy really double check your inseam, I'm 5.8 ft so I assumed the regular length would be good. THOSE PANTS ARE LONG lol. So had to get the short ones. February 11, 2014
Keeps me warm and dry I purchased these pants to keep me warm and dry during the Houston winter months. Sizing: I ordered my Wrangler (relaxed fit) jean size and they are a perfect fit. Comfort: They are comfortable over Wrangler jeans and even better over work slacks. This is with the liner in. Fairly easy to put on and take off with my boots on. Weather protection: The pants kept me warm riding 1 1/2 hours in 28-degree weather. I try not to ride in the rain, but the pants kept me dry on several misty days. These pants block the cold wind! Quality: I only rode with these for two months, but I have not had a problem with the zippers or liner. The knee armor location is correct when riding and the pocket access allows easy access. I am very satisfied with the Firstgear HT Overpants (item# 907436). February 10, 2014
Nice commuter pants, be careful with sizing if you have a beer belly! I just got these pants and I made the mistake of ordering my regular pants size... In the video, Anthony suggests buying your regular size, but that would apply if your belly and waist are the same size (like all the young guys at RevZilla)... Unfortunately, I have acquired a beer belly that made my regular pant size be too small... In the generic pant sizing video, Antony does make it clear that you have to measure your size at your belly button, not your waist/pants line... Of course, it was no hassle to return/exchange for the next size up... Anywho, the pants are very nice... My only concern is me doing damage by catching my boot tread on the inner mesh when putting them... November 8, 2013
Great overpant These are great overpants, i put on my work pants and then slide these on - get to work and ready to go. Very good quality. October 22, 2013
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. September 5, 2013

Sort by:
RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Scott H: Needed a pair and decided to give these a try 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

A shopper asked: 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.

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
