I wish they had a longer pant for Tall. Other than that they are great. I have been in the rain with them and no soak through yet. The quality is good so far and the ease of putting them on and off is the easiest of any pant I have owned. I put these on over my jeans so they have room for that. They zip up almost the whole length of the leg so makes getting over your boots easy. velcro up the sides for ease. Great stuff for the price. They are warm too. I am an everyday rider through out the year so take it from me. I took the pads out as I didn't want the extra bulk on my legs, and that was easy to take out. I hope this helps you with your purchase.
At six months, the ankle velcro failed to keep the ankle cuffs closed to my boots. The waist adjustment velcro went a month later. The crotch seams leaked from day one, something Seam Grip wasn't able to completely stop. The fly zipper stop (a YKK) flew off at barely a year old.
Firstgear has terrific features on this pant, but they have utilized the cheapest material and it shows.
I bought these to wear over my clothes while commuting. They fit very well, the armor sits perfectly on your hips and knees when sitting on the bike. The side zipper goes up really high which makes getting them on and off very easy. The only thing that I would improve on is that the fly closure only opens a small amount due to the rain baffle. All-in-all, its a great product at a great price. Highly recommended.
