Firstgear Kathmandu Overpants 4.4 5 46 46
Excellent but baggy Love these pants but they are huge, even for my lard-butt. Make sure to measure yourself, don't make the mistake I did and simply look at your Levis size (my jeans say 38" waist, I'm really 44"). Excellent waterproofing and armor. I may have them altered by a seamstress to fit a little better. April 14, 2014
I would give a 100% recommendation I tried them on the moring after I got them on a 35 mile ride to work! I was extremely impressed on this 22 degree march moring in northern west virgina! My legs stayed dry and overly warm! I can't speak for warm weather riding yet but I was still comfortable at 60 degrees with the liners still in! March 20, 2014
Excellent cool/cold weather pants I bought these over the winter, but couldn't really give a review because I hadn't ridden with them yet. Today I did. I find them to be very comfortable and warm. I especially like the storm gator on the bottom of each leg which keeps cold air from rushing upwards. The bottom velcro strap keeps the bottom snug against my boot which is nice when walking as I bought these a size larger than normal and it keeps them from dragging on the ground. I don't like overpants to be tight when riding otherwise I'm constantly fidgeting trying to get comfortable. One thing I knew I'd be giving up with these is the ability to easily put them on over boots. It's just not going to happen. Perhaps with the liner out, but even then you have to contort a lot to do it. I'm okay with it because I didn't buy them to be pulling them on and off a lot. My old pair of overpants will work for quick trips to work and back. Overall I'm quite pleased with them and will be using them on a trip to Colorado later in the spring. That's when I'll find out how well the leg vents work. March 10, 2014
Excellent all purpose overpant. If you want one pair of overpants that does everything and isn't incredibly expensive, I think these are as good as you can do. Pretty much every feature you could want. Order one size larger than your regular pant size. A little tricky to get all the zippers and velcro right, but for with so many layers and features you have to expect that. February 25, 2014
Excellent value Great value - fit is good - Have been using as a winter riding overpant in 30 degree weather and the pants have performed flawlessly, keeping my lower body warm, even without the insulated lining. I have also used it on warmer days and the airflow vents allow me to adjust to a more comfortable ride. Great product!!! February 3, 2014
Nice pants for ADV riding for sure I really like these pants because of the suspenders.... i feel like they keep everything in place when moving around and walking... overall the pants are great and i would buy them again ... Joe February 3, 2014
Definitely 4 Season I wear a 38/29 waist jean I bought 42S. Fits good, but waist is slightly snug straps are fully extended. Legs nice loose, still getting knee pads dialed in. Rode 7 hrs from Mendocino coast 53 degrees, hit 82 degrees Redding, the 27 degrees Yreka 1hr later with freezing fog. I had the pants jeans underneath no thermal layer On, temp was comfortable didn't need to open vents. Cargo pocket right leg perfect. Restroom break works fine I ride 2010 BMW R1200RT polar Metallic the color Of the pants actually match the bike! January 27, 2014
Solid effort by First Gear Purchased these with the Kathmandu Jacket - bought the 34T to fit my 6'5" frame. Normal inseams run 35-36' with me and these fit fine on my 33" waist. I use the bib/suspenders instead of a belt and have no issues with straps digging in to my shoulders or back. The Good: They are a true 'wear over' design, even with the quilted liner, my work pants always fit just fine underneath. I have used them with and without the liner in temperatures ranging from near 100 degrees to below zero wind chills and they are manageable if not truly comfortable in all weather. The zippered and storm-flapped air vents in the thigh area help with ventilation, as do the zippered flaps on the sides of both legs, and there is a good-sized cargo pocket on the right front at about mid-thigh high. There are thoughtful touches such as the reflective striping front, side and back, and suede patches located where my lower thighs hug the pseudo tank area on my 8GS. The armor is well-positioned when seated and unobtrusive when not. First Gear uses high quality fabric throughout - their hypertext water treatment coating has kept me dry in true downpours both on and off the bike. The fastening system for the lining is effective (I haven't had the need to use the zipper on the back that would mate these with the jacket but it appears to be well thought-out.) Give yourself time to 'learn' this gear - there are loads of features. Needs Improvement: I'd like to see a complete velcro or web belt included here - the velcro adjustments on the waist work, but a full belt would give more options for fastening. The sewing for the bib hanger loops is weak as provided - mine gave out after about a half-dozen wearings. 15 minutes with a needle and thread cured this, but it seems an oversight in such a well-conceived and executed bit of gear. All in all, a purchase that I've used a great deal with good results; for the money spent a true bargain. December 30, 2013

Todd W: Lost a pair of older Firstgear over pants this year. Love the fact I can slip out of them when I reach my destination w/ my jeans on. Also the waterproofing, 3-4 season use, and the new protective pads. AND what else out there gives you so much for so few dollars? O yeah - I like the light color, tired of all black, even though my jacket is black, the light colored pants are perfect feng shui... Nov 23, 2013

russel r: These are great pants. A knee brace will fit.

One issue the stretchable fabric may need a waterproofing spray.

Darcy H: I purchased the Katmandu gear for my husband. There is a fair amount of room in the legs. With street pants on my husband can pull the knee about 4-5 inches away from his knee cap. There are also zippers on the pants that go up to the knee area. I would guess that you would be able to use knee braces in these pants.

FYI: My husband did have go up one size in the waist because they are higher waisted than normal jeans. He is a standard 34, but had to get a 36 in this pant in order for a proper fit.

Stewart B: I have large thighs and calves and I have plenty of room for knee braces since the pants are somewhat loose fitting. I also have to wear knee braces at times and the only thing I can say is, that it will make it a little harder to get into and out of the pants with the cold weather liners if you have a lot of rigid hinged bracing and might make it a little more difficult to keep the knee armor in place.

Kody W asked: How much adjustment does the waist allow for? Jan 29, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Darcy H: I would suggest you go up a size in the pants. They are high waisted so fit differently than jeans. My husband is ALWAYS a 34 in jeans and had to go up to a 36.

There is a velcro waist adjustment strap on each side that you could use to tighten up the pants an about 1 1/2-2 inches on each side should you need to, but there's not really any give or elasticity to the fabric itself. It would just fold over itself under the velcro. You'd want to err on the side of having these pants a large rather than small. there's no way to expand them.

A s: Hey Kody
I am a 36" waist and have the 38 " . Fully adjusted out its snug with a tuck of a tech layer. Its a hook type fastner so keep that in mind. I use this for my long rides between temps < 35 degrees F . Very comfortable nice features but not much in the way of protection. ( technically speaking ) Hope that helps.

James B: I recommend getting a size larger than you actually wear, when sitting pant legs will rise up. I also use elastic clamps on the bottom of the pant legs under bottom side of boot keeps the pant from riding up. Waist is adjustable with Velcro pull straps, closure is with button and hook.

John H asked: Thinking of buying these pants to commute to work in and love everything about them. However I wear a revit spectrum jacket in hi viz and am thinking an all black pant would look better. Anyone tried these with hi viz jackets? Dec 5, 2013

NOAH K: I've worn them with the icon hi viz patrol jacket and I think it worked fine....they're the kind of pants that are pretty universal and sort of can go with anything...that's my two cents, but I am not really known for my great fashion sense! Dec 6, 2013

Stewart B: I have the Kilimanjaro Hi-Viz jacket and it is so bright that people have a hard time not seeing me. I too wanted a black pair of pants, but the quality of the pants is so good that I really don't care! Dec 6, 2013

A shopper asked: I'm very interested, but concerned about the light grey color...
Won't they become easily stained with mud ?
Apr 8, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Yes and no. Maybe. I don't really know. It's tough to say. Obviously lighter colors show dirt more easily, but if you're covered in mud - it's still going to show. Honestly, proper adventure gear is more about comfort than looking pristine. If you're in the sun all day, lighter colors will keep you cooler. Function is more important than form in this case.

I can't imagine you'd be upset about your clothes being dirty after being on an adventure ride. The giant smile on your face would outweigh the thought of having to wash them.

2BentRims: North Carolina red clay stains everything. After a few good thrashings off road my Kathmandu Overpants still look fine. It was raining while I was out, so there was no chance for the red clay to dry into the fabric. Possibly, on a hot, dry day there could be a little staining if I got into mud and didn't clean them for a few days. I fully expect for the light grey to look "well-used" pretty soon. Time will tell.

RevZilla: The grey of the Kilimanjaro is not the same as the Kathmandu jacket and pant combo. The Kilimanjaro has a slightly lighter, more ashy, tone than that of the Kathmandu which is a traditional grey. Oct 23, 2012
