Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex XCR Boot Brand new for Fall 2011, the Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex XCR Boots offer motorcycle protection with hiking-boot style and comfort. They'll get you through the worst of weather conditions thanks to the Gore-Tex XCR waterproof and breathable membrane. Although it is quite a mouthful, the Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex Boots deliver in performance what they lack in brevity. That is to say, we think the Alpinestars CR4 Boots will be some of the most popular motorcycle boots for Fall 2011. Features Upper constructed from a combination of PU coated leather, suede and textile Breathable mesh lining on the collar and tongue and features waterproof and highly breathable GORE-TEX XCR membrane Foam backed, double density impact protector on the both sides of the ankle Internal toe and heel counter are layered under the leather Hiking boot style lace system with metal eyelets and top hooks Wrap-around rubber outsole reinforced with metal shank in the heel and a TPU shank in the Plantar Arch for enhanced rigidity PU coated leather shift area Reflective inserts on the rear of the boot Shock absorbing EVA midsole Mesh lined, anatomically profiled EVA foam footbed

I just returned from a 12,000 mile motorcycle trip, wearing these boot s each day. I encountered heavy rain on many days and the the boots never leaked. I worn them while walking, and the comfort was just as good as any sneaker. They fit perfect, I have a double E wide foot and bought my street size shoe. I love these boots and highly recommend these for the ride who want dry feet and the comfort of a sneaker.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Purchased item to replace another pair of rain pants by Tourmaster, that leaked big time. Worn the new pants yesterday for the first time. Put on, on the side of the road before a major rainfall. Went on over my boots without removal of them. Pants a long, just wore them higher on my waist. No zippers, which to me is just another area water can enter. No leaks and the light material are just great for hot summers of Florida. When I removed the pants my butt was wet from sweat, so these are not something you can wear for a extended period of time unless you need rain protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.

After riding in Florida the past few years and putting up with unannounced rain on a regular basis, I decided to spend a few extra bucks and get a quality rain jacket and pants. I have been using a Tourmaster set, but it just did not hold up. Pants leaked in the seat and the jacket leaked around the neck. They sewed the zipper to attach the pants to the jacket backward. Real junk, and they were not that cheap to buy either. Now the this new set seems to be the ticket to arriving dry. The jacket fits great, large enough to place a riding mesh or full jacket under. Sleeve have Velcro, to hold them tight. Plenty of adjustment around the midsection, so the jacket does not ride up. Helmet hood is a nice addition, keep water off your neck. The pants are nice, but do not think as much thought was given to the design, as the jacket. Legs are really long, will have to have them hemmed up or wear them up around my chest. Plenty of room to slip them on without taking off your boots on the side of the road. No netting inside the leg to cause you any problem, just slip your foot through. I purchased the high-vis yellow, which will help the cages see me in poor conditions. Ofcause only time will tell how they hold up. Down here in Florida we get a lot of use from our rain gear, so within a few months I will see if it was money well spent.
Yes, I recommend this product.
