I appreciate this review very much as well as the comments from readers. I too have a 34-inch inseam and dislike the limited options in women's riding gear though they sometimes offer brighter, more visible colors.

Living in the Pacific Northwest, rain happens so expensive gear that gets soaked through is not going to be high on my list of considerations. I would like to hear from others because I have heard nothing but excellent reports about the durability, comfort and convenience of Firstgear clothing.

I was going to submit an article on my Firstgear jacket, but decided to search and found this one. So, I'll just add a comment. I ordered my Firstgear jacket, at the beginning of winter 2008. It was great the few times I used it with the liner. Then yesterday, I took it out, took out the liner and wore it. It was great!

I have read so many articles about crashes in summer and those wishing they had worn their riding gear. So, I did. It's hot when the bike stops, but during the ride, it's quite comfortable and cool.

I have tried every makers pants. Only to return them. I have tried every pair of Firstgear available only not able to find a fit. The problem is they (manufacturers) do not realize that some women are short and they do not make petite size. I hope this gives them a hint. The only petite size Firstgear has is if you are under a size 10.

I ride almost year around- if it's over 34 and not snowing. I have a Firstgear Kilimanjaro jacket and HT Overpants. I bought these through closeouts on NewEnough.com and they were about $350 total. I bought the men's models because I am tall. I've ridden in all day downpours day after day on an October Canada to Mexico PCH ride, and from Montana to Arizona in March. It was 34 and foggy for the first day. I could barely see the road,but I was warm and dry (except for fingertips).

The Firstgear quality and design are excellent. I wear the jacket with a heated vest-with-sleeves I bought from Aerostich. The best money I ever spent. I wear the pants with various layers of tights, from thin silk to extra heavy thermals. Only negative was the jacket outer layer soaked through, and wind chill caused me to be cold when I stopped and couldn't run the heat.

I've since bought a Tour Master Elite rain shell. Totally dry and warm now. Good gear is priceless when on the road in cold weather. As a friend of mine said: "Buy the best gear first. That way you only cry once."
