Very comfortable but a couple of flaws Overall, I really like these pants and they may be the most comfortable motorcycle pants I have ever worn. Good quality construction and zippers, true to size fit, and not too bulky. I never use the liners that come with pants so when I saw these pants come without liners and therefore are more reasonably priced, I decided to try them. There are a couple of flaws however... First, The knee armor is very bulky and inflexible. I solved this by exchanging them for some D3O armor I had purchased for my last pair of pants. (D3O highly recommended). Second, the placement of the pass through front pockets defies logic. I don't own a pair of pants that have pockets that will align with their placement. They need to be moved towards the hips more. (I can, with some difficulty, get to the pocket in cargo pants) Again, I really like the comfort and quality of the pants and do recommend them with the caveats mentioned above. February 27, 2015
Really like them. I am 5’8” 185 29” inseam. Tape measure says 44” measuring at navel. Wear a size 40 in jeans. I ordered size 40 short. Have been wearing them over my jeans. They fit perfectly. The features are nice. The back pocket is deep and wide with Velcro so I know my wallet is not going to fall out. Front two pocket access openings are convenient to get to your jeans front pockets. The fly access is pretty easy too. They look good and feel safe. Only used them in cold weather so far. Warm enough so I don’t need long underwear in the mid 40s. January 19, 2015
Comfortable, dry & warm I bought these pants to keep me dry and warm for my daily commute, and they're great. Easy to get on & off over my jeans and they're very comfortable too. The first size I ordered was too long, but shipping back and getting a new size was extremely easy, quick and painless process. The second pair fit perfectly. January 14, 2015
pants are very convenient. a excellent product for commuting and travel. easy to put on and take off when you get to your destination. work well and are a reasonable price October 8, 2014
Great basic pant After 3 pairs of riding pants that I rode some 150,000 miles with and never installed the thermo liner in any of them I decided to save a few bucks and get just a shell this time. Same great waterproof riding pants just not paying for a liner that will sit in my closet.. I'm sure over jeans I'll be plenty comfy into the teens and seeing as it gets that cold maybe twice a year here in VA I should be all set for a few years. May 12, 2014
tall rider I was concerned about finding some long legged pants. I'm 6'5", 205lbs, 36" inseam, 34" waist. I purchased the 36 Tall with the intention to wear over jeans. These fit me well. They feel a bit like snow pants but not as baggy as a wingsuit. I'm afraid the 34T would have too snug of a fit in the legs. The length works well. I can adjust the knee pads to be positioned correctly while on the bike but feel out of place while walking. Overall I'm happy with this size for my build. April 18, 2014
Zipper came apart on second wearing So I get these pants and am excited to have a nice shell pant, and order the long length, which fits well, and on my second time wearing them I pull up the crotch zipper and it pulls off the track. I mean, the zipper came apart. And I was hardly yanking on it. Just pulling it up the way you do a zipper on your pants. Revzilla doesn't provide a satisfaction guarantee or anything like that, so you are at the mercy of the manufacturer. Now I have to go through the dog and pony show of returning it and all that. What a pain. If I pay a shop to put a new zipper on it I have spent another $50 or whatever. The internet is filled with stories of bad zippers on these pants. What the heck. February 3, 2014
Good value I have been looking for over pants for my commute to work.. These work great, provide protection and a little warmth. January 13, 2014

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.

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..

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

Joe A: David, I wear the overpants down to 45 degrees and they are just fine. I do wear jeans or cargo pants underneath to add warmth and I find the combo satisfactory. Nov 20, 2014

David W: I do plan to be wearing these over jeans. Nov 20, 2014
Chris C: David W.

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.

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?

Thanks for any help!

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

A shopper asked: Is it possible to put hip armor, like knox or SAS-TEC, into these pants? Also, can the knee armor be upgraded? Sep 7, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

Vincent Z.: Modification can be done but not recommended.it may cause stitching to fail due to the increase in size of armor,and also change the waist line fit Sep 13, 2011

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to Chris Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Rook604: The shell is the same as far as I can tell, the only difference is if you pay to get the liner + shell, or just the shell. Jan 7, 2013
