The importance or Rain Pants cannot be overstated! That is, if you want to stay warm and dry on the trip. Dual sport riding pants have come a long way in a short time. Furthermore, the rain-specific pants from Firstgear are truly next level!


The Splash Rain Pant pictured above boasts a lightweight, waterproof nylon outer shell. This shell protects against the rain while the cool mesh lining keeps internal moisture in check. Moreover, these belt loops help you adjust the waist to your exact specifications. We are talking comfort all day! Also of note, a hook-and-loop leg opening adjustment feature allows for a snug over the boot fit. Lastly, reflective prints help with visibility in low light conditions.


Full coverage is a big deal when you are out there in it the muck! So while the jacket and gloves are nice, the pants really keep you dry from that water roosting up from the pavement. They also shield those adventure base layers that are really keeping you warm underneath. Bottom line, you are going to want these pants!

Firstgear ADV Rain Gear – Gloves

The new line of dual sport rain gloves from Firstgear is guaranteed to keep your wrists and hands warm! Furthermore, the  full-gauntlet Outrider Heated Glove (pictured above) comes equipped with an active heating element to keep the feeling in your fingers when the temperature drops.

Especially relevant is that it’s made with naturally moisture-resistant supple goat leather. Not to mention a waterproof membrane to keep your hands dry in any weather conditions. And as we know, there’s nothing like heated motorcycle gear, right? With these gloves, you can fully control the temp as there are three levels of heating. High (Red), Medium (White) and Low (Green) clearly indicate how much heat your liner is giving off. Lastly, the glove liner power draw is just 1.2 A (14.4 Watts) on high per pair.

Ready to go whenever you want, the Firstgear Navigator Glove features 420D textile/leather palm. Naturally, it’s got the full gauntlet and wrist adjuster to fight off wind chill even at high speeds.
