I totally love these boots. I bought them almost a more than month ago and decided to wait until I went through two rains to finally give them a proper review.
First off, the negative, if it is a warm day (>80 degrees), don't expect these boots to breathe very well. If you're flat footed, don't expect much comfort after walking around in them for more than 30 minutes. If you wear jeans with anything narrower than boot cut, don't expect to pull them over these massive boots.
Now the positives! My Yamaha FZ8 is my daily driver, I have nothing else to drive. With that in mind, these boots are awesome day in and day out. The leather is still in prestine condition with only minor scuffs from the foot pegs that easily rub out. The TPU shifter pads show no sign of wear. The velcro is still strong, the buckles still click like new, and the soles are still intact despite dragging them on the concrete.
As far as the heat issues, I just wear breathable socker socks to wick the sweat away and I am comfortable all day. As far the flat foot issue, I purchased a set of SureFeet Black-DMP insoles to replace the factory ones and now it is the finest, most comfortable setup that I can wear all day despite living in hot Houston weather. As far as the jeans issues, my Levi's regular straight cut jeans fit over the top of the boots with easy. I can even add the Tour Master Sentinel rain pants over them without difficulty. If I want to get that CHIPS, motorcycle cop look, I wear my Wrangler jeans and tuck them in the boots.
You can't go wrong with these boots. Yes, they are quite pricey, but they are worth every penny. Combined with my Dianese Scapel gloves (also purchased from Revzilla.com), I have an awesome commute to work and school, from sunrise to sunset.
The pictures were taken today after wearing them since the day I bought them and after the rain we had today.

The fit is accurate. I chose the size by the size of shirt I normally where. My waist is 40" and I wear a XL t-shirt. So...I went with a XL size. It fits well, the zipper and Velcro seals it up very well. The collar is lined with some kind of fancy soft material and doesn't chafe the neck and provides neck protection in the stabbing rain. The pants fit great. They come up above the waistline. That combine with the jacket coming down below the waist provides protection from water dripping down into your underwear and no wants a soaked underwear, right?
The only downside is that it does not breathe. Not at all. So the second the rain stops and sun comes up, get out of it soon or you'll have your personal sauna in your pants. Woof!

These boots are awesome. They feel hot but you have to remember that they are made to withstand rain so they are well sealed. The heal is stiff which isn't all that great for walking around town or at the mall.
Nonetheless, they are perfect for commuting to work or meeting up with some friends at a meet or outing.
People think that are just regular casual shoes until they see the protection and features they have for riding. Only then do they seem in awe at how awesome they are.

I love this bag. I initially was going to buy a Kriega R20 but the good folks at Revzilla customer service steered me to this bag after discussing with them my concerns about organization.
i need to carry a lot of small tools for my job but didn't want them to just flop around the bag. They recommended this Ogio bag because it had more individual pockets. Boy...I am so glad I bought it. The pockets are small and plentiful. I can carry my notebook, stethoscope, trauma shears, medical tape, cell phones, wallet, keys, pens, small flashlight all in an organized fashion. Because of the dome-like structure, I am able to dress in my bike gear and carry my scrubs with work shoes without cramping the bag and potentially damaging the notebook. When I am off, I can empty the main compartment and carry a carton of milk. One time, I even carried two orders of fried chicken with mash potatoes! Nothing spilled or got crushed. However the bag now smells like fried chicken (YUM!).
There is one downside, if you wear a size 11.5 (US) shoe, don't even bother putting them into the shoe pockets. My works shoes were stretching out the elastic material I was fearing it would rip.
Another downside is the waist strap. My waistline is about 40 inches. With my bike jacket, the waist strap is not long enough to around my fat butt. In a way, it inspires me to lose weight. However, in the meantime I am not able to use the waist strap to have a really secure load.
In the end, if you like pockets for small items, carry scrubs, like to lug around fried chicken, and have a small waist line, then this bag is RIGHT for you!!
Yes, I recommend this product.
