Icon Reign Waterproof Boots One more product to walk out of our foul-weather development center. The Reign boot's easy access and low profile design make it an excellent choice for the daily commute or long distance travel. Rugged waterproof YKK zippers make entry and exit a snap (actually a zip). The waterproof and breathable interior mean your feet stay cool and dry even when it's neither cool nor dry outside. Protection comes by the way of durable leather and a ballistic nylon upper mated with injection molded shin and ankle plates. The lowers feature an axialmetric steel shank along with slip-resistant high friction outsoles. Even with all of these features, we still managed to make them so lightweight and comfortable you may just want to wear them year 'round. Features Durable leather and ballistic nylon upper 100 waterproof seam sealed construction Waterproof and breathable inner lining Injection molded shin and ankle plates Rubber shift interface ribs High friction Icon outsoles Axialmetric steel shank Footpeg interface arch YKK waterproof zippers

I have not had these boots for very long and the below review is based on the limited time I have had them (less than a week). Once I have had these for while, I will add to this review or make a new one.
As you may know a lot of sport bike riders wear there Timberland boots when riding. I am guilty of this my self, but after getting into an minor accident I started to really think about better protection when riding.
Size: I wear a size 11.5-13 in sneakers and size 12 in boots (timberland), so I ordered a size 12 in these boots and they fit great. If anything they could be 1/2 size smaller, but its not a big enough size difference to make to try a different size
Comfort: The boots have a stiff sole, but they are meant to have one. Its not so stiff that you cant walk in them but I would not recommend walking long distances in them. If you work in an office building where you spend most of your time sitting, the occasional walk to/from parking lot, to the printer, or break room will be fine.
Style: I know protection is more important than looks, but lets face it. We all take into consideration the look or style of the gear. Sometimes we focus to much on the looks instead of how much protection they will provide. I personally think they boots look good with pants tucked into them or for a more stealth (most people wouldn't notice its a motorcycle boot) look have the pants on the out\side.
Durability: I have only had these boots for a few days so I am not able to judge the durability on them. But from what experience I have had so far they seem like they will last for a while. If anything I feel the zipper will be the first thing to go, as its a pretty snug fit (in a good way) and that may but addition stress on the zipper.
Protection: Obviously they offer and extreme amount of addition protection over Timberland boots, but this is to be expected as they were designed for this and Timberland were not. They provide ample ankle protection on both inner and outer sides. The toe box is nice and stiff and will help in the event of a impact. Its not a steel toe, but close to it. The heel area is even stiffer and in my opinion will provide ample protection. The sole of the boot is nice and stiff and allows nice feedback from the controls.
That's all for now, will update after a more use to see if durability, comfort, or protection changes.

I purchased these gloves specifically for cold weather use. While they are good for fall weather, they will not be warm enough for winter weather. I have had these for about a month and have ridden with them in temps from 40*F-60*F. With temps below 60*F your hands start to get cold but no so cold its uncomfortable. Anything under 50*F - 40*F (depending on your comfort level) you will need a warmer glove.
As far as comfort goes these are extremely comfortable and fit true to size. I normally wear a size M, so I got a size M and it fits great. They do not flow much air but considering these are meant as cold weather gloves, you don't want air traveling though as that will make your hand way colder.
The fact they work with touch screens is a HUGE plus. It makes checking messages or changing the song on your MP3 player at stop lights very easy and you no longer have to take a glove off.
