Rain Pants

What is a good brand of rain overpants? I currently have a First Gear Kilimanjaro jacket and would like to get a pair of overpants for when it rains.

I have the First Gear HT overpants,never been wet,they cut the wind good and removeable liners keep me warm in cold weather. Got mine from Motorcycle Clouseouts.

Cool HT Pants

I second the coment about First Gear HT pants, they do a very nice job.
Try them on over your pants don't guess, I wear a 36 and I bought a 34.
Less than $200, not bad.

Ditto on the First Gear HT overpants. They fit well with the Kilimanjaro.

Spent many miles in rain and snow flurries with these on - stayed warm and dry.

On warmer days when I don't wear the HT's, I have a pair of First Gear rain pants that always stay in the panniers.

I've had a pair of Marmot Zip Rain pants for over four years now and I love them. I bought them for riding ($99) but I use them all the time - riding, skiing, golfing, shoveling snow, standing in the rain at my daughters soccer game last weekend. They're light and easy to pack and with the zip side they're easy to put on over my leathers and boots. I also wear them under my leathers when its cold. I thought water would get in the zipped sides, but I've done about a thousand miles of riding in the rain with them and I always stay dry.

Here's a link to the newer version - only $89:

YMMV...My next pair will likely be First Gear Rainman pants...integrated pouch, made of nylon (PVC sucks when it's hot out)...$49 bucks from - http://www.newenough.com/firstgear_r..._pant_page.htm

A little less pricy than the Marmots, are these Sierra Designs - http://www.sierradesigns.com/mens.display.php?id=229 - Nylon based with integrated pack. Very small pack size. Only problem with non-mc style raingear, you will have to order larger sizes to make them overpants.

rain pants

I use a Dry Rider. My pants are a bib and come about halfway up your torso. They work. I road into work in a downpour the other day and my cloths were completely dry.

Thumbs up Rev-It! Pants Great

With armor, waterproof, easy on and off over boots, zipper in back to connect to Rev-It jacket. I got mine from my local BMW dealer (Blue Moon ) for about $100...

Firstgear HT

I have a pair, brand new size 38. Lost a bunch of weight and never wore them. Interested in sale or trade?

Wow I didn't know BMW made motorcycles, Yeah I think Honda does too.
