REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit In developing the Pacific H20 rain suit, one of REV'IT!'s main goals was to make it easy to put on in just a few seconds about the time it takes you to get soaked during a heavy shower. Mission accomplished. The solution lies not only in the long, diagonal front closure, but especially in the newly developed, non-stick, PVC-free coating on the inside of the Power Nylon outer shell. The result is a 100 waterproof, breathable, and very practical all-weather companion that will meet the demands of any rider. Convenient features include a storage pocket on the upper leg. For safety, reflection panels on the shoulders and lower legs ensure great visibility. If you need to stand out in traffic even more, the Pacific H2O comes in a high-visibility neon yellow option. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PVC-free PWROxford with PU coating, PVC-free PWROxford EN471 with PU coating (in Neon Yellow color only) Waterproofing 100 waterproof Composition 100 polyester (100 polyurethane coating) Visibility reflection at shoulders and legs, reflective logo at chest and back ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment tabs at upper arm, cuffs and ankles Features PVC-free XL front zipper Elastic at waistline Includes transport bag Stash pocket on left leg EN343 certified

First let me say that I love the fit and look of this suit. It's part of why I bought it. But then of course a rain suit is supposed to keep the water off you, this has not. I've worn it four times. Three of which I ended up wet from the waist down. The only reason that I didn't on the other was that I had my rain liners in on the gear I was wearing under the rain suit because it was cold.
I cannot determine where the water is coming from but it seems to reach a breaking point and then I feel a rush of water over my right leg that moves down to my crotch and wicks up and down my body.
If not for the leaking this would be a really great raingear. As it is it's totally incapable of keeping me dry and so will be relegated to the useless gear pile where all my other rain gear has ended up. Why can't someone make rain gear that actually works? This is my 4th time buying rainwear and they have all failed.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I bought 2 pair of these for summer riding. The length is good for any boot that you may own. There are mesh panels down the back and over the top of the feet and cushion on the heels and front of the leg. With a breathable boot (like the gore-tex ones I have) they work better than my normal wool socks for keeping my feet dry during a ride. They may look funny with a pair of shorts on, but once my mesh pants are on over them they are great.
The mesh areas look a little fragile so I'm being careful putting them on but no issues so far. The only other issue (personal not with the product) I have is that I can't wear them to work. Unlike my black wool riding socks I can't wear these with my work shoes once I get to work. This means for me that I'll only be using them on weekend rides, which is totally fine. It would be nice to find the same socks in black.

Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots A TeamZilla favorite, the Dainese TRQ-Tour boots are perhaps the best option for commuting, or sport touring. Collectively, we have put thousands of miles as well as a few crashes on the Dainese TRQ line and they never fail to impress. Recommended as a 3-season cold-weather boot that stretches nicely into the warmer months with Gore-Tex breathability, the TRQ-Tour Boots are the kind of protection that you will forget to take off! The axial hinge provides excellent protection, while allowing for comfortable movement as you walk. In addition, the rear entry zipper allows for easy entry/exit to the boot. D-Axial jointed anti-ankle twist back system in TPU Nylon toe TPU rear shinguards TPU heelcounter Nylon heel Cowhide leather D-Stone fabric Elasticated bellows Elasticated inserts Internal regulation with Velcro Closing with zipper at the back Waterproof / Breathable Gore-Tex membrane High grip TPU inserts Padded insert for gear shifter guard Reflective inserts Non-slip sole Italian patent pending Microelastic elasticated inserts(PCT Patent Pending)

A boot truly made for riding. Walking, not so much

I purchased my Dainese boots about a few weeks ago and have already logged a few hundred miles in them.
I had to return my first pair because they where too small. I'm a 101/2 - 11 in U.S. sizing and ordered a size 44 but had to go to a 45. I did this because I wanted to have room to wear thicker socks in the winter, but also because from about mid-foot to the toe box the boot is pretty narrow. Walking in the boots has gotten better as I've worn them but I would not want to walk around for more than a lunch stop. The flex portion of the top of the boot is limited to where the the boot meets the foot and the molded shift pad. It's a small area and with the reinforced sole there's a bit of a pinch point. However this is only an issue when walking.
Once on the bike, the things that I don't like about the boot when walking are exactly what they should be while riding. Fantastic support on the pegs, easy shifting and all day comfort. Air flow is very nice. I can actually feel air cooling my feet while I'm riding. This does not mean that they will get wet when caught in a storm. I've already ridden in the rain and the Gortex lining performed as advertised.
Getting the boots on and off is very easy and makes changing shoes when I get to work simple. They also fit easily into the saddle bags on my bike. I've not had an issue with the zipper sliding down, or with the gater material getting stuck in the zipper like others have stated in their reviews.
All in all I'm happy with the boots. They are a technical riding boot. I look at them as a ling distance touring boot, or just below a track boot. Great for long miles on the bike, but not for long walks. Bring a change of shoes on your trip.
