Firstgear HT Women's Overpants
I'm a larger man so I was glad to see a larger option. It fits very well and the adjustable armor is great.

Product is as Described - Feature Rich w/out "Bling"
Having the physique similar to that of a "Troll", finding over-pants was a challenge, at least finding a pair that are not through the roof in price. Revzilla made it a whole lot easier with its generous return policy. Having “said” this, I’ve always appreciated the value that FG products bring to the market. The pants are well made, appear durable (though I’ve not had them long enough to rate) are easy to don and doff (side zippers help and are sturdy) and with the insulated liner “installed” are warm enough that I can ride in or around 25 degrees Fahrenheit. Now, my only complaint (of sorts): I currently have a 40-inch waist and 32-inch inseam (see Troll comment above), so in order to fit my waste I had to get a longer-legged pair. So, the pants bunch up some, are bulkier than I would prefer and have come into contact with external bits-o-pieces of the motorcycle, e.g. the front cylinder exhaust “header”. Though the header is shielded, I’ve smelled a brief burnt odor a time or two. I am reluctant to complain about this since the issue is really with my weight and not the over pants. Having said that, it would be helpful if the pants came in Troll-leg lengths. And as ALWAYS Revzilla customer service is exemplary. The on-line video reviews are also very helpful.

Excellent Cold Weather Overpants
I got these for cold weather riding and these pants do exactly what I had hoped, I've used them for a 20-30 minute commute at hwy speeds and they've kept me warm at temps as low as 32 degrees with only blue jeans underneath. I've also used them in temps up to mid 50's without needing to remove the insulated liner. The Velcro at the bottom of the legs helps keep the wind out and the full length side zippers make it very easy to get in or out of them with boots on. I found the sizing chart to be accurate and they are quite comfortable.

Very Pleased and happy with first pair of riding pants
This is a first time review from a first time writer..I purchased these riding pants in December when they were on sale....I have been wanting to buy them but just hesitant because of price....Friends of mine have the older ones and really like them....So, since I got a new BMW R1200gs (2016) I have more air and less wind protection, I got these with the liner......
The first pair I got had a snap bad so I asked Revzilla to change which they did without hesitation. In fact, ordered them done day and had the new pay the next afternoon....
Because my inseam is 29" and my waist is 37-38, I got the 38 Short.....These pants are wonderful. Fit great and after a small adjustment of the knees pads, they are perfect....
When wearing riding, the length is perfect. The legs fall right at the beginning of the boot and ankle....Knee pads fall right into place......
When walking around, they tend to drop down to my hips...I noticed there is a belt loop, but decided to get some Chum suspenders...Now everything is perfect....Perfect length, perfect waist and the ability to put on and off is facilitated by the ¾ length zipper.....The only thing that is somewhat bothersome is the zipper. It tends to get stuck on the material on the side of the zipper. (Reason for only 4 stars)....Other than that theses are very good pants and the liner make them perfect for weather temperatures down to 40F....The top of my legs and shins are not cold...Coupled with my 20 year old Kilimanjaro jacket and liner. I am warm......Sometimes is use my Gerbing heated vest. but after 20 years, things are beginning to get tight.........Hehehehe....Highly recommend...

Not a single bad thing I can say
I always worry about buying clothes or gear online due to fit, seeing the style, etc, but this one was a slam dunk for me. And it was even riskier since it was a Christmas gift. The sizing was spot on, the style is simple overall, but just how I like it. The armor sits in exactly the right place.
But the single most important thing, I haven't gotten a chance to go colder yet, but at 10 F, my legs feel absolutely nothing. It is pretty amazing.

Short length is way too long
I bought the Firstgear Kilimanjaro jacket, which fit like it was tailored for my size. I figured I would have luck with their matching pants in short length. I have a 28 inch inseam, so I figured that getting the short length of these should be fine. I was very wrong. While I got the short length version, waist was fine, the quality was excellent, however the length seems to be 4-5 inches too long. I figured I could have them tailored, but I am wondering if that is possible. As of now, the knee protection is covering my shins. It's a shame. I figured I was in luck when I saw these were offered in short length, but their short length is for folks who are about 5'8-5'9, not 5'4".

For success-measure your beer belly.
Don't go by your jean size-get out a tape measure. Measure your actual waist size just below your belly button. My belly measured just short of 38 and I wear a 34 X 30 denim jean. I chose a 36 Regular and it fits perfectly. I think a 38 would snug down that far, but look like clown pants. I don't know why manufactures think a bigger waist means fatter legs.

This product has convenient pockets and fits well.
I especially like these pants because they have a waterproof liner that works well in heavy rain and provides wind protection as well for use on cooler days. Plenty of extra storage in the large pockets and access to the pockets in my jeans.
