Firstgear HT Air Overpants

The Firstgear HT Air Overpants are great for those days when the heat is on or there is a chance of rain. The removable waterproof liner can be used as a stand-alone pant when you've reached your destination. Large mesh panels provide great airflow, and 2 pass-through openings allow access to the liner or rider's base layer. The long zippers on the sides of the HT Overpant make them easy to put on or take off, even when you keep your boots on. CE approved armor in the knees is adjustable for a custom fit. Two front pockets hold items for handy access.

Constance B on May 31, 2017
To replace the pair of HT Airs I bought in 2006. Worked well, but starting to wear a little after 100,000 miles.
Matthew M on May 23, 2017
Excellent reputation for quality and fit. Took advantage of the reduced price.
Billy O on May 19, 2017
Best pants out there. I did Africa for 33 days and wouldn't buy any other product.
Christopher M on Sep 28, 2016
Liked the fit and protection of the standard HT overpant but need mesh.
Scott G on Aug 27, 2016
Over pant with short inseam and adjustable armor position, other products too long with no adjustment for my short inseam
PHILIP L on Aug 14, 2016
all round and practical. something i need for my riding conditions
Ren B on Jul 22, 2016
Seems liked a quality product
Terry W on Jun 3, 2016
Had a pair that were great. Just lost 75 lbs so needed a smaller size, so I bought them again.
Nicholas D on Apr 3, 2016
These are the only overpants I can find for a big guy. They don't fit perfectly, (way too long) but they are the best I could find.
Phillip M on Mar 25, 2016
picked these pants so that i could wear my work attire under them and not have to fully change. they fit well, sliding over my scrubs and boots with ease.
James F on Jan 11, 2016
Came in tall size! Good value as well.
Lane C on Nov 13, 2015
Wanted good quality hot weather overprints for commuting.
Charles P on Jun 26, 2015
Needed summer pants with lots of air flow.
stephan b on Apr 27, 2015
Summers are hot and humid in SounthEast Kansas, needed protection with ventilation.
Brian W on Apr 18, 2015
Good for wearing over my pants and for waterproof.
Jofferson G on Apr 7, 2015
I owned a pair before and was very pleased with the fit and ability to pass air through to keep cool on hot days
C H on Apr 6, 2015
Because I like the brand and hope that it fits me. I am 6'8''.
Travis J on Feb 11, 2015
Very hard to find motorcycle pants when you have 36 inch legs
TIMOTHY L on Dec 7, 2014
I have an older pair of these pants and I have worn them so much they are thread bear... Whether over my shorts in the summer or over my long pants in the winter they do great and with the water proof liner its a rain pant as well...
Rodney I on Sep 8, 2014
Fit. Available tall size. Prior experience.
Andrew M on Sep 3, 2014
Needed cooler riding pants for summer. Already have good fall / spring/ winter pants. The first Gear HT Air have nice features and good reviews.
Dennis M B on Aug 24, 2014
Companion to my coat and temperature control
charles b on Jul 25, 2014
Great product. Easy return on the over-pants that didn't fit. Gift for my son going to live in Germany. Gotta keep him warm.
Regina C on Jul 22, 2014
I like Firstgear stuff, and my size was in stock. I own a pair of HT overpants but they are a little too warm for the hot summertime.
ANDREW H on Jun 26, 2014
Needed a pair and decided to give these a try

P.S. used them several times... Fit perfect and work great.
Scott H on Mar 26, 2014
Always owned Firstgear products and the quality for the price is top notch. There pants offering the ability to ride when the mornings are cold or damp with the liner and then shed the liner to a mesh pant in the afternoon when it is warm is ideal for my commuting needs.
Marcel B on Mar 19, 2014
versatility in variable temperature climate, protection against precipitation elements, firstgear reputation
Joseph W on Mar 13, 2014
I chose these because I needed a pair of overpants for protection on my rides. I chose correctly! These pants are good year-round (I live in San Diego). Unfortunately, I had to test them a few weeks ago. A car driver made a right turn from the center lane which gave me the option of eating car or eating ground...I chose ground. But the pants held up and did their job! I walked away without a scratch. Just some bruising where the bike landed on me.
Russell W E on Mar 4, 2014
I bought these because I wanted some extra protection for longer travels.
Dean U on Mar 3, 2014
Good reviews for the price. I own some Firstgear gear and know that the quality is good.
Benjamin D on Jan 4, 2014
After doing hours of research on line reading reviews of pants that fit my criteria I choose these.
Holly K on Jan 1, 2014
Seems like a good idea for a commuter. I typically wear khakis on my ride to work, but there is no protection there. I hope I can slip these on and off easily over my work clothing.
Chris L on Aug 8, 2013
Good reviews, I have other First gear apparel.

Matthew M on May 23, 2017
What is the difference between the Firstgear HT Air overpant and the Firstgear HT overpant?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Air it mesh fabric construction, and gets water and wind proofness from the thin liner (inside). Without that liner, they breathe almost like you're wearing nothing over your regular clothes (as long as you are moving). The HT gets water/windproofing from the shell material, so any cooling is provided by opening the zippers. However, the HT fabric doesn't hold any moisture like the mesh will when it gets drenched. The HT's liner provides additional warmth. If you already have pants for weather above 70 degrees (or don't wear riding pants in summer), get the HT's. They will be warmer, and a little more convenient for intermittent rain, and full on downpours. Both are very comfortable, and sized as true overpants. Unless you are tall for your weight consider the Short option. I'm 5-9, 180 w/ 35" waist, and the short doesn't drag ground when walking, yet is long enough for riding position. If all your riding is above 50 degrees, or you need pants you will wear mostly in 70+ degree weather, get the Air's.
Which D3O knee & hip pads do you recommend with these pants ?
A S on Dec 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I use the stock pads and they work for me. I haven't thought of replacing them with aftermarket pads yet.

I was wondering how the HT Air holds up in colder weather around 40 degs in the morning?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 2006 ST1300,85K,Had these pants for a while now,Rode home recently at 27° with liner in and levis no problem,I do usually have my heated vest and gloves on in these conditions,I commute 70 miles a day from 108° to single digits,with no problem,40° shouldn't be a problem,The outer pants snap hasn't worked since day one, the slightest pressure and it comes undone,I just use the adjacent hook type latch and it holds Ok.You can get in and out of them with your boots on easily,just lube the zippers occasionally and your good to go,also you will need to replace the hip pads,might as well have just stuffed paper towels in their,Hope this helps.

I was wondering if it's possible to upgrade the hip pads in the pants to something CE rated
A shopper on Nov 28, 2012
BEST ANSWER: We are unaware of any current level of CE rating for hip armor that has been developed yet. However, you can still upgrade the hip pads in this pant if desired. The pocket for the hip pads in this pair of pants can accommodate either a SAS-TEC or Forcefield replacement pad.
Is the seat of these 250 denier mesh only or is there some extra reinforcement?
A shopper on Jul 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The seating area of the Firstgear HT Air Overpants is a Mesh-Tex construction and does not have any additional reinforcement.
If I didn't want to wear this an overpant, how many sizes down do I need to go?
Tyler A on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm a big guy. Wear a 42" waist. I often wear just the shell with a pair of light shorts in the summer. I feel they are big then, but i still don't see that i could go down in waist size by a lot. I could probably get away with the 40" waist if that was all i wanted to do with them, but i feel that with the liner thay are still only marginally too large.
What is the true inseam of a size 34 Tall. I noticed on the video it talks about a change this year, but the Firstgear webstire does not acknowledge this change. Could you please verify what the tall inseam is for a 34 waist. Thanks for your help, and keep up the GREAT work.
A shopper on Apr 27, 2011
BEST ANSWER: My pant size is 40WX34L to 40WX35L and the regular 42W HT Air fit me fine and have enough length even without boots. The Long version might be a good option if you plan on doing a lot of cold weather riding.
Will the connecting zipper on these pants work with the RevIt Ignition 2 jacket?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2012
BEST ANSWER: No, you will not be able to zip the Firstgear HT Air Overpants and the RevIt Ignition 2 jacket together as each brand has its own proprietary zipper system.
