Great Riding Pants I wear these over my jeans, and with a pair of Sidi Apex boots. The 32s fit me really well (5'11", 150 pounds, athletic build). Someone complained about the location of the knee armor but I was able to slightly reposition it on the velcro that holds it in place and now the armor lines up perfectly with my knees. The legs unzip all the way up and the removable liner automatically opens as you unzip each leg, so I've not had any problems putting them on over my boots. Although they look great in black, I would have chosen a lighter color if it were available. It would be cooler in the summer where I live (AZ desert). February 3, 2015
Well made, but poor design These pants are huge..! Very baggy and not easy to don on/off even with shoes, let alone riding boots. Not the best choice for the daily rider/commuter... too cumbersome. My main issue though is with the knee protection. The pads hang low and the top of the pad sticks under the knee making walking uncomfortable. When on the bike with knees bent, they cover the knees but are far from comfortable. They're worth the money but consider spending more and getting a more ergonomic design. January 26, 2015
Kept me warm Rode in them for the first time today and I am very pleased with this purchase. The temperature today was around 23* when I went to work and 9* when I got off. With just these and jeans on, my legs were warm enough to still be comfortable . I would've preferred to have my base layer pants on also but wanted to test these out in really cold weather. I wear a 34 waist in pants and ordered the 34 like it said to, but it is really snug around the waist with jeans and a belt on. I'd reccomended ordering one size bigger than you normally wear just to be safe. Although I appreciate the waterproof gator behind the zipper, I wish there was an easier way to answer nature when she calls. Overall so far I am very happy with these over pants. January 14, 2015
Great Pants Bought these pants because I needed something warmer for winter and my old pants were literally falling apart at the seams. So far these pants have provided the warmth I wanted, keeping my legs comfortable down into the upper-20s at 70 mph, and I no longer have to wear multiple additional layers. I bought a size 38 to go over my standard 36 waist. I probably could've gone with a size 36 but I'm happy with the extra room and the waist adjusts easily enough so the pants aren't close to falling off. The ability to adjust the height of the knee pads is nice, but the pads themselves aren't very comfortable. That's about the only thing I don't like about the pants so far. If the knee pads had a little more actual padding - more like hockey pads - the pants would be perfect. December 30, 2014
Great purchase! Excellent product! The website stated that the pants are a true fit. This is not correct; I purchased my pants one size larger and they are a little tight. Go up two sizes for a better fit! I ride all year long, even in extreme cold weather, and the pants keep me nice and warm. I wish they had more pockets! easy to put on and to take off. December 1, 2014
Can't go Wrong with FirstGear This is my second set of ADV riding pants, both were Firstgear. A zipper finally failed on the first set (probably could have just repaired it) but I opted for a new pair. The first set lasted thru two 8,000 mile trips to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska and a 10,000 mile trip to Newfoundland as well as numerous local trips. A lot of wet and sometimes cold riding over three years. Firstgear was an obvious choice for a replacement. November 17, 2014
Excellent All weather pants I've been wearing FirstGear HT Overpants for years. They are comfortable across most temperature ranges, and with the liner, are good for riding into the 30s. Water proofing is excellent. I've ridden through torrential rains in them, and they keep you dry. This pair replaces some that were destroyed in a crash, Those only ended up with one tear after a long pavement slide. The armor did its job. One item I don't like are the lack of pockets. There is one left thigh pocket. the other pocket locations at each side are pass-throughs to reach pants pockets. Since I usually wear these as pants over riding tights, they are of no value. I'd rather have real pockets. November 10, 2014
Works well, does what it's supposed to. I'm 6 foot 7, so bought the tall size. It could be a bit longer but it still works well. In terms of cost vs benefit, it's a great product. October 27, 2014

Billy O: Needed a new pair of quality riding pants. Feb 10, 2015
thorick g c: I already have some Alpinestars overpants that have been working well for years. I want a backup pair of overpants. The alpinestars are baggy enough to fit over regular everyday pants AND a pair of asterisk knee braces over those. I hope the FirstGear pants are also baggy enough for this too. Jan 27, 2015
Stephen S: Firstgear makes great stuff, and I needed good four-season, all-weather overpants. Jan 1, 2015
Howard N: Strong reviews. Own other FirstGear products. Dec 29, 2014
Chris L: Not a big fan of my legs being frozen while riding. Really don't like the idea of being on the highway for 500 to 600 miles a day without some protection between my precious skin and the pavement. Seem like a good choice. Dec 24, 2014
Kimberley W: My husband picked it out due to the reviews. Dec 1, 2014
Raymond W: Stopping to put on rain gear is a pain and I never do it until it's too late. So I'm buying these pants to wear most of the time. I also ride a lot at night when it is cooler and just want something that I don't have to stop and struggle to put on. Nov 30, 2014
Mark T: I needed some cold weather pants and the reviews on these were good. I rode the entire summer in Firstgear HT Air pants and they fit well so I decided to stick with what I know. I did try on some Klim Latitude pants but they didn't fit and I considered Aerostich Darien pants but in the end I decided to save some money and give the HT Overpants a try. I only wish Firstgear would have included D30 armor in these pants. Oct 14, 2014
Torrey G: Great reviews, they say the sizing is true to your size, I hope so. Weather is getting cold here and I still want to ride in comfort. Oct 13, 2014
David F: Hope these babys aren't too warm in summer! Sep 16, 2014

M O: revzilla's video description and the price sold me. Dec 3, 2013
John Z: Two reasons: 1) I have heard read positive reviews of these, and 2) I have a very short inseam, and the other overpants were just too long. Nov 21, 2013
A shopper asked: What are the differences between this HT overpants vs the other HT overpants for $212.45 on your site? Dec 19, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
eric p: I have actually owned the older pair and now use the newer pair. There are two main differences that I noticed.

First being the weight of the fabric. The newer style uses a lighter fabric in the shell. 420 vs. 600 weight polyester.

Second is the cut of the pant. The newer model has a slimmer fit. The older model was much more baggy, which was kind of annoying.

I think the new style is much better. The weight of the shell is sufficient. I have worn these pants for short commutes this winter, coldest being 14F, with pants and thermal underwear and have been comfortable. And the cut is nice, they don't look like Hammer Pants.

John A: I honestly can't tell you, I ordered a pair of close out HT over pants, it showed online they were in-stock in my size, but the Revzilla people let me know right away the pants I ordered could not be found in the warehouse, so I then placed an order for the new HT Over pants - If it helps the pants are great, they fit well and are easy to take on and off - Well as easy as can be expected for Over Pants.......

scott b: The other HT Overpant is the one from Fall 2010 I believe. This one is their current 2014 model. The one different I noticed was that in the 2010 model is that the thermal liner in it zips in to the shell. What this means is that in order to zip up the leg, you need to unzip the shell AND unzip the thermal liner.

Probably other diffs as well, but that was a decider for me.

Matthew B asked: Do these pants vent?I'll be wearing them from 35 up to 75 degrees. Thanks. Sep 18, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David P: Hi Matthew
These pants do not vent directly. But they should work well in the temperature range of 35 to 75 you are asking about. I have an old pair and a new pair. I usually ride in a pair of shorts with the over pants on. If it is to hot I just take the lining out. They have worked very well for me for the money. The old pair zipped higher on the side then the new ones do, I liked that better. The new ones have a large pocket on the left leg which I really like.
Hope this this helps

Tom W: You can vent the legs with the dual zippers, but I wear these pants without the liner until temps get to the mid to upper 70's with no need, as long as you have the liner removed. With the liner I've been comfortable with temps down in to the mid 20's. Great pair of pants and fit great, just make sure you order your regular pant size. They are sized to compensate for you regular pants. Sep 18, 2014

Kevin D: No they do not vent. That being said I wear mine all year long going to and from work. Here in the south it can get very hot once you get going on the bike the heat doesn't bother me.

Kevin K asked: Liking the pants but looking for suspender options. What's available? Is there something that may use the zipper in the back? I see Revzilla has two Klim suspenders. Neither are zipper in the back and both seem to use different methods to attach.

What is easiest/best suspender option for Firstgear HT Overpants to keep them up on my big-belly-no-butt body?

John W. W: Pants are very warm. if its not at least 50 degrees or below out, you are gonna sweat a lot. When I get home or to work I have to change out as fast as possible, I do wear under armor thermals also, when it drops below 40. as for suspenders, the material is a little slick so a pair with some teeth on or rubber grip I would recommend. I only wear these in the winter months by the way, I have not worn them as just the outer shell. Hope this helps Jan 9, 2015

Charles M: I use some plain old run of the mill clip on suspenders. With attic ends and no teeth so won't wear on fabric. Works great. Still can use rear zipper. Jan 9, 2015
Reply to Charles Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Kevin K: Thanks for the quick responses.

"Attic" ends? Is that like a clamp-on friction end without the teeth (or pin) that most have? I mentioned the zipper because I thought it made an obvious attachment for suspenders. I don't wear a jacket that would use the zipper.

I'm thinking of the HT Air for warmer times but those seem far off right now.

A shopper asked: Does the fly on these pants actually work for access (i.e., bathroom), or does it only provide room for the waist to expand? I ask because I have the Tourmaster Overpant and, the fly only allows for waist expansion. Mar 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Tom W: You hit on the only complaint I have about these pants. The fly! No access for when nature calls. The more annoying feature is the material behind the zipper to keep water out is seen in so close to the teeth of the zipper, it's all but
Impossible to zip without getting the material caught in the zipper........which I guess is better than getting something else caught........

Other than that, great pants! Comfortable down in to the 20's and excellent in the rain.
Mar 9, 2014
Reply to Tom Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Gilbert L: The fly on these pants won't provide access due to the extension flap in front. I believe that it's just there to provide for expansion. Mar 11, 2014
Reply to Gilbert Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
David B: The fly does not open. There is fabric behind the zipper to prevent water for entering. The waist is adjustable. Mar 9, 2014
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kelby S: It is space for the waist to expand. There is webbing/nylon that blocks the fly area (I assume for wind). Mar 9, 2014

John T asked: I'm almost ready to order these pants, but I still have a sizing question... Im 6'8" tall and 205lbs. I usually wear a 36 waist and a 36 inseam. I cant stand short pants!! But the sizing chart shows I must order a 40"+ waist to get a 36" inseam?? Is this correct? Ive got long legs and dont want to have bare ankles while sitting on the bike. Any advise for a tall guy with a normal pants size of 36X36?? Jan 12, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gary M: John T,

As far as sizing, There are velcro straps that will tighten down the waist. I am not sure if they will go as far down to 36". The inseam, I am 6'6" tall and the inseam fits is acceptable. The velcro strap at the bottom of pant leg snugs down around my boot at the ankle nicely. I wear these for daily commuting in Oregon as a all-weather rider.

I know the pains of being a tall rider and attempting to find tall sized riding gear.

Good Luck.

Daniel B: I'm 6'2" 180. I wear a 33 or 34 waist and 34 inseam for jeans. I ordered the 34T (tall) and think they're perfect for me. My first reaction was they were way too big and I wanted to send them back, but they seem to fit much better with the boots (definitely not short pants). You can buy a 36T, no? If ordering a 36T is equivalent to my 34T, I would say the pants will be plenty long (based on my experience). I usually wear the pants over jeans on my winter commute. Jan 13, 2015

Albert C: When I first ordered the pants I requested a waist size 34 which was my jean size,they didn't fit,not even close.You have to measure around u'r belly,they fit high.On reorder I ordered a 40 & they fit great.The length worked fine based on my normal jean length.I would suggest you measure 'round u'r belly & go with a 36 length.Revzilla was great to work with,I really like them.They are easy to find if you ever have a problem or a question. -AL,Helena,Montana- Jan 13, 2015

David B: I wear a 38x30 jeans and per the instructions, I got the same size over pants. They fit a little snug with the liner in and baggy with the liner out wich is how I wear them. The leg length is generous, slightly dragging the floor when standing. It's hard to say if the bottom of your cuff will stay dry in a hard rain, but your ankles will be dry Oct 21, 2014
