Michael S: I was looking for added protection from weather and road these pants should provide.Mar 4, 2015
C R: bang for buck. didn't want or need insulating layerDec 18, 2014
Duncan R: Had great service from previous pair. A no brainer.Jun 5, 2014
riley r: i needed a pair of riding pants and there are way better deals on this site than at the dealerships!Apr 11, 2014
thomas b: Same answer as before....I have been riding for over 46 years I was a wax cotton guy for 40 years and finely decided to warm up from the deep freeze of New EnglandSep 14, 2013
David W asked:I have a 30 mile commute. Winter mornings run from 40 to 50 degrees. Will the HT Overpants Shell be adequate for these temps? Or should I spring for the full-bore HT Overpants?Nov 20, 2014
Sean S:I have both actually. You'll definitely want the full both HT overpants. You can remove the quilted liner in them for the 40 degree weather and then add that back in when it gets lower. I usually switch from the Shell to the HT around the 45 degree mark.
Just rode the other day in 17 degree weather to work and back in the HT and didn't have any issues at all.Nov 20, 2014
Richard S:Hi David, I don't know about 40 degrees. It will depend what you're wearing under them; just pants or pants with thermal underwear, too. The shell pants are great wind stoppers and temps in the 50s and above are definitely more comfortable with these on, but they're not insulated. Hope this helps..Nov 21, 2014
Karl R:The shell is all I have. They cut airflow in what you are wearing and keep you warm that way. My trip home is around midnight these and a heated vest and grips keep me going down to the 30's. Below that add base layers to taste.Nov 21, 2014
It depends on what you plan to wear under your outer layer pants. I wear two layers [full length underwear and then long pants] under mine and have ridden well below 30 F. I find their versatility useful.Nov 20, 2014
Mark T:My Firstgear HT Overpants came with standard CE armor. I did try replacing the CE armor with Icon D3O Knee Pads (Item# 886741) but I liked the fit and feel of the CE armor better so I sent back the D3O knee pads. I am very pleased with the HT Overpants, used them all winter long for blowing snow ;-)Mar 29, 2015
Howard S:Unless they have made a change for 2015--which they may have, the two pair I have owned have had standard CE. I would call Tucker Rocky (makers of Firstgear Apparel) direct and ask.Mar 29, 2015
John T asked:I was going to order these as I was told they were the EXACT same thing as the regular HT, minus the insulating layer inside. After reading the description, it looks as if these are made from a different fabric, maybe thinner?? Not sure on the differences in nylon deniers. What are the differences between these pants and the HT's with the liner? I dont really need the liner...but are the pants with the liner worth the extra money anyways?
Howard S:I purchased the HT shell because I was replacing my HT overpants that had worn out, and therefore didn't need the liner. I primarily use them over the pants I wear to work, but if I'm riding for fun when it's cold, it's nice to have the insulated liner. I have the same size HT pant that I wear in Jeans (40R covers 40X33). If you want to use the overpant and liner both over your street pants you would need to go a size up. If you use the HT liner over long underwear it works great.Feb 3, 2015
Scott H:Depends on what you need. I live in Arizona and the non insulated version works well but my lowest temps are in the upper 20s at the coldest. My legs have never been cold yet anyway. I have a Kiliminjaro jacket and noted the fabric was a finer weave than my jacket. Fit is true to the fitting table ... This version works great for me now (Feb) however I plan to get something lighter when the temps climb up.
Richard B:I've owned the original, the mesh, and now have these. Never wore the liners. The material is sufficiently thick for protection. I like these since I have a short inseam and can order the short . they fit me great. You can adjust the knees up and down and left and right a bit.Feb 3, 2015
C R:The nylon is a very sturdy heavy nylon. It feels verry strong and safe. The pants with the liner feel thicker and more imobile. I like the feeling in the pants. It's not too hot and it feels safe. I wear them over cotton leggins.Feb 4, 2015
Rook604:Both the knee and hip armor are attached to the shell with velcro. 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.Jan 7, 2013
A shopper asked:The Firstgear site shows them as different products with different deniers. Your site shows them with the same picture. Can you provide some clarification? Are these the HT overs without the "other stuff" or a different product all together.Sep 8, 2011
Chris K:Thanks for bringing this to our attention! You are correct and I have confirmed with FirstGear that the denier on these two products are different. We will update the product description shortly.Sep 29, 2011
