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
2nd time fits fine I outgrew my old overpants (or the waist shrunk) so went for this new version. First time, too large/long. So returned for next smaller size and they're fine. Still the "short" is a tad long when standing but ok when on my Spyder. Guy I spoke with was very helpful in making the exchange (buy new pair and return unused pair) and it went as he said. Had new pants within a few days. New version overpants has more velcro closures especially on the legs which if I had my druthers, I wouldn't have. But overall, excellent product. December 23, 2013
Good basic overpant This is a one piece pant that you just throw on over your normal pants and go riding. In warm weather I use the HT ‘Air’ pants that are excellent, but I got these pants for fall and winter riding. I took the knee pads out because 1- they are uncomfortable in any of the positions the Velcro lets you put them in and 2- the pant is so loose at the knee that the pad will almost never be in the right place in an impact anyway. If you’re concerned about your knees, my suggestion would be to purchase ice hockey knee pads and wear underneath other clothes. Overall, these pants are just what I wanted. They are easy to put on and take off, and the waist adjustment allows you to tighten them up after putting them on. The Velcro at the bottom allows you to tighten to prevent cold air from coming up your legs. They are waterproof. They will protect from road abrasions if you end up sliding down the road. The only thing I dislike is the pass thru pockets. I would prefer actual zippered pockets like those on the ‘Air’ pants. With jeans underneath, the access is too low, with normal pants, the access is too far forward. October 7, 2013
Works So far they have worked for me. Havent been in any downpours, but they have kept me dry in a medium rain for 30 min. September 2, 2013

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 England Sep 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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

Brian P: 40 to 50 degrees, you should be just fine. Used to ride year-round in New England, these did fine. Might need another layer if it gets really chilly. Nov 20, 2014

thomas b: there fine…. over pants are over kill 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..

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
Reply to Joe Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
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.

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
