Great pants

Ordered a size larger than my waist. Fit perfectly. Rode in mid 30 degree weather with the insulated liner for about 45 minutes, and my legs stayed warm (was wearing heated jacket). Suspenders did not pull pants up into my crotch, but kept them in just the right spot. Well constructed a nod easily zip into jacket. Very happy with these pants. Got them within 3 days of order.

Nice quality

Paint laner needs to stop at outer zipper height. Distance from inner seam to knee is too long. Great fit otherwise and good quality material.

Kathmandu Overpants

First, I've been using Firstgear textile jackets and pants for over a decade, and there's a reason for that. I've tried some other jackets and pants, here and there, due to riding buddies selling off gear, and giving me really good deals. I've sold those, and went back to my Firstgear every time. Why? Fit, Finish, Features, and quality of build. I've stuck with the Kilimanjaro line until this purchase. I could not be more pleased with the Kathmandu over pants. Out here in the Pacific Northwest, in one day, you can go from starting temps in the 40s to the high 80s / mid 90s by mid day - and encounter rain - and then get back down to the 40s by end of day. I really like the suspenders, and how the liners in the pants are 3/4 length. Plus the number of pockets, and pocket slit as I call it if you're using heated gear during the winter time. I had to order / go through 4 different sizes, but that was not an issue with Motorcycle Super Store, or Firstgear. When buying on line, you have to expect that you may have to re-order a different size. Returns were easy with M.S.S. - which I give a kudos to them for that. Just keep all tags, hanger, and the plastic cover in case you have to return an item. As for the pants - they are excellent, fit great, and have kept me completely dry in rainy situations. As far as sizing, as some reviewers stated, go with one size larger. I'm 5'10 / 190lbs with a 38" waist and 32" inseam, and with poly-thermal pants on, cargo pants over them, and the liner in the pants ( simulating winter ), I actually went with a 42 short, over a 40 short for comfort - which with the velco straps allows for tightening up the waist for spring / summer riding, and expanding the waist for late fall / winter riding. I give the pants 5 stars, and would recommend them to anyone. Oh - and price point - the whole set cost less than just a Darien jacket with no liner. You can't go wrong with these pants. One very pleased customer here ..... :)

Outstanding multi-use cycling pant

This hit my needs. It is all-purpose with a liner for colder weather, and a waterproof lining built in. The pants are comfortable, but the legs seemed a bit long. I'm 6'3" so no problem, but a short rider may find that the knee armor is too low. I've done limited riding with these pants, but I find them comfortable and exactly what I was looking for. When we hit the road later this year, I will be able to leave my rain suit and my leather at home.

Great pants

Got these to replace some leather up pants that I wore out in less than 10,000 miles. Fit is a little big, but my butt is getting bigger too. It appears to be well made and has the features I was looking for. I like the adjustable pads on the hips and knees.

So far so good

After a swing and a miss with the "long", I recieved the regular size. They fit well, with just some slight wandering of the knee pads to the side. The only downside is that while they are overpants, they won't go on over my boots, so I have to take them off to put the pants on or off.

Great All around Pant

Great pant, warm and water proof. Tested on 3 day 1200 mile ride with 2 days of Heavy Rain and stayed dry and warm. Could use another exterior pocket or interior pocket. Padding is good and movable but not enclosed when not using the liner. The short works great for the length, but the waist size is undersized. Order at least one size larger than your pant size. Love the suspenders.

Great Overpant

Have about 1200 miles on them and they are warm and dry; excellent overpant. Order at least one size larger. The snap fits up around the bellybutton. I'm a 34 waist and needed at least a 36 but may have even wanted a 38.

Confortable, and weather proff

I have used them at extreme hot at Baja, and then I take them to ski at Ruidoso (yes instead of winter pants) and not disappointed with quality and weather proof. The only one is the fit, because I am at Levi´s 38, and 38 is a little bit close, but two beers least and they fit Ok.

Good gear

Just a tad snug on the fit description, but still adjustable to a certain point. Fantastic weather protection, great features, haven't put that many miles in them yet, but looking forward to it. Quite comfy. Started with the TourMaster $80 pants, and I guess you get what you pay for. We'll see if these last the gambit.

not bad just not what I hoped

Looks great, waterproof, love the suspenders, just dont like the extra length on the 40's need to be 3 inches shorter they are not 32 inseam like the chart said. Guess ill have to return them for 40short. That and the side zips dont come up nearly far enough to get boots into are my main complaints, theyre hanging in the closet unworn. Just havent had time to return them.

Mr

Nice features. Superior ventilation. Look like they will be long wearing. A little difficult to put on especially with the liner in. Suspenders a great feature. Can unbutton the front without them falling down. Useful for the obvious reason.

One day out of the box, then a 2k mile trip!

These fit me well, and served well for a 2000 mile trip I did along the eastern states. I hit wind, rain, hot, cold, etc...my butt stayed dry, the pants held up very well and I plan to use them much more. I had issues fitting into Olympia pants,but the Olympia jacket fits me great. these Firstgear pants fit well right off the hanger, but the jacket was not comfortable...oh well, at least it all matches and works!

Katmandu Pants

I am 250 lbs with a 31 inch inseam. As with all motorcycle pants the inseam is a bit long. My riding position on a Sports Tourer has enough knee bend to get the pads in the right spot. Off the bike, I look like someone in sombody elses pants.
