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.

Excellent pants for the money!
I am 6'1", 185 lbs and wear a natural 34x32 jeans size and ride a 2014 BMW R1200RT. I tried on a size 34 pair of these at a local motorcycle outfitters and they were 1 size too tight in the waist. If you step it up 1 size (in my case a 36) they will be just right.

They have adjustable Velcro straps on the hips so don't panic if your size initially feels slightly large. You can tighten them up with not problem.

The other thing I really like about these is the overall fit. I opted not to get the HT Air Overpants with all the liners an so forth simply because I have a cold weather limit to my riding and the shell pants are suitable for me. The Shell overpants have a nice classic fit to them, i.e. not al baggy and so forth.

Additionally, they are super easy to put on and take off over the top of jeans or work khakis. The high zipper/Velcro combination up the pant legs make it a breeze to get in and out of without having to remove my motorcycle shoes.

If there is one negative to throw out there it is the lack of additional pockets on the Shell pants themselves. There are "access pockets" to the front pockets on my jeans but nothing built into the Shell pants. Other reviews of the Shell pants say the same thing. Other than that, I am very pleased with them!!

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.

Good protection and comfort
I wore these on a 700+ mile trip over a long weekend and found them to be dependable and generally comfortable.

The first pair I ordered were too long - I am 5'9"/155 with 33" waist, but the 34 reg had the knee armor too low, even after adjustment. The 34S fit perfectly.

I also had a "user error" event - I opened the top pant flap, unzipped the pocket and put some stuff in, only to find that it was not a pocket at all, but an access opening for my jeans underneath. Duh. It could use an external easy-access pocket I guess.

I purchased a rain suit as a backup for this trip and did not need it. With the overpants up high and my jacket liner snapped into them, I had no rain problems at all in light-med rain. There is no mesh, so no real air flow.

They are easy to get on and off even over boots, but I still preferred to put the boots on last.

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.

Shell yeah!
I commute everyday in these pants, so I basically put them on and off 4 times a day. I usually have my above the ankle boots on - the zippers go high enough on the leg to get my boot in and out without issue. Every now and then the velcro gets in the way but never enough to make me fall *jinx*. My only "complaints" -- 1) I dont wear jeans to work, so the pockets dont align with the pockets on my slacks; I dont wear them when I have jeans on and 2) I needed to go for the "short" style as the knee pads fell to far below my knee - the short version fits a bit better but exposes a little bit of skin. It has not rain in the last 3 weeks so I am not sure how waterproof they are or how much water could go into my boot. If FirstGear is reading this, just add extra velcro on the inside of the pants so that the buyer can adjust the knee pads more.

If I had to do it again, for the price would I? Shell yeah!!!

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.

It's ok but
This is an overall ok overpants. My issue was that the velcro used to hold up the knee protectors was 6 inches higher on one leg than another. First gear has zero customer service. They also have a lax QA department. I had already dirtied it up so I couldn't return it. I had ti remove the lining on one leg and have a tailor sew it where it should have been. Although this is probably not the norm for their gear, I will look elsewhere for my next pair.

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.

Better than chaps
I've been wearing chaps as both rain and cold weather gear since the late '70s. First pair worked like a charm. Second pair was acceptable. Third, and now fourth pair are awful.

These pants are a replacement for chaps. Glad I went this route. Fit is good, weather protection is excellent. Easy to put on, easy to take off.

Gripes (nits):
No exterior pockets.
No access to rear pants pockets.

Yeah, I'd buy these again.

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?
David W on Nov 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
The firstgear catalog shows these overpants with D30 armor rather than the standard CE armor in the Revzilla description. Which description is correct?
Paul F on Mar 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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 ;-)
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!
John T on Jan 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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.
A shopper on Sep 8, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Is it possible to put hip armor, like knox or SAS-TEC, into these pants? Also, can the knee armor be upgraded?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
