    Firstgear Basegear Pants - 2011

    Riding to the best of your ability requires gear that enhances your skills by not only protecting you from the outside elements, but also by functioning internally to keep you dry and maintain a comfortable body temperature. Firstgear’s Technical Performance Gear (TPG) accomplishes these tasks by employing an integrated layering system where each piece performs a specific function. TPG’s three-part system consists of Basegear to keep you dry, a Tech Liner to maintain the correct body temperature and a selection of jackets and pants designed to allow the first two layers to operate properly by protecting against outside forces. TPG is the first system initially designed to function as a cohesive three-part system.

    Think of TPG Basegear as a unisex second skin that not only protects you from chafing and bacterial build-up, but that also combats body odor and keeps you dry. Constructed of fabric that’s lighter than cotton, TPG’s Basegear keeps you feeling fresh by helping to keep your skin moisture-free.

    Features:
    • Moisture transport system wicks the sweat from your body keeping you cool and dry
    • Basegear’s heat-release mechanism keeps your skin surface as cool as possible to help maintain core body temperature - increases in core body temperature can cause muscle fatigue and slow reaction time
    • Fabric is 50% lighter than a cotton t-shirt after 60 minutes of exercise
    • Releases 80% of its moisture after 30 minutes of rest, while cotton only releases 35% of its moisture after 30 minutes of rest
    • All seams flat-stitched for added comfort under layering system
    • UV 50+ protection from sun elements helps control body temperature to reduce fatigue
    • Anti-bacterial protection

      **Closeouts are limited to stock on hand**

    First Gear Base Gear Pants

    Bought these for my husband. He wears 38 waist jeans and the XL basegear pant fit very well. The legs are a loose fit compared to others that are like a second skin. Very comfortable and long enough legs. Well made.

    Under leather pants

    I bought these to wear under leather pants (perforated) and they have done the trick. They keep my legs a normal temperature on 95 degree rides and make putting the leathers on and taking them off a breeze. I normally where 35 waist and 30 inseam and had to go with size LG as the XL were way too big for me.

    Good but sizing way off for 2x

    Sizing chart for 6’4” and 220lbs = 2x but the weight spread in that range is 80lbs, or approx one supermodel girlfriend. When I got them they were about 4” too big around the waist. I needed them for a track day so didn’t have time to return. The fabric is comfortable for summer riding keeping your leathers from rubbing your skin off. Wash through the machine resulted in no pulls or seams coming apart. They’re overpriced long underwear but cheaper than other brands so cost benefit =3.

    Firstgear base pants

    These pants wear just fine and do what they are advertised to do. They feel great, except for the LOOSE WAIST BAND. The waist is not true to size, could be much more snug. But under your outer protective pants they would be ok.

    These things fit fine, I wear a size 32 pants 170 lbs 5'9". These aren’t skin tight, but they aren’t loose or anything. When I have them on and pull up the leathers, they stay in place, aren’t tooo expensive and keep me comfy so I’m happy

    Firstgear - Basegear Pants

    Work well, a little loose in the waist but nothing you can't live with. I wear them under jeans and they've worked well in mid 50's, lo 60's.

    Works well

    I ordered XX-large and they fit but should have ordered X-large. Don't know, but you might need to order one size smaller. They keep me cool under my levis' and I don't even remember their there. I also bought the shirt that goes with this. I'm happy.

    Great

    Very comfy. Thin, so they easily fit under riding pants.

    Exactly What I Was Looking For

    I bought these pants looking for that extra layer of clothing to keep my posterior warm on the cold mornings that I'm out riding. I'm telling you, in the 28 to 35 degree weather that I've been riding in lately these pants underneath my jeans has made a world of difference. My legs no longer feel like they're going to fall off after an hour ride in the freezing weather. Great buy!!
