There's a couple size 6 pants on the close out rack too.

Olympia pants are designed to give you 6" to play with on the cuff and the armor goes up & down.

Firstgear only makes one inseam length per size, and they are not easily tailored. The knee armor is fully adjustable.

A lot of women purchase the Firstgear Kathmandu men's pants too! These come in short, regular, and tall inseams. Fully adjustable D30 knee armor.

Some women can fit in the Klim gear too. I have Plum colored Klim Sundance Fleece midlayer jackets on the truck in all sizes. They will be here Tuesday I think. They look awesome!



I could get on a rant about the manufacturer's lack of correct sizing & offerings for women; but, it would take pages of typing. I'm riding with Firstgear employees next weekend and am going to bend their ear. Wish me luck.
Excellent, thanks for the info. She is just starting to ride with me and finding gear for women is tough and gear for little women even harder.
