I selected this boot over the Sidi Adventure Rain / Gore-Tex, largely because of the difference in price, but I also like the more streamlined appearance of the Scout. I haven't had a chance to test their "waterproof" claim yet, but after 2500 miles of street and fire road riding, I like them a lot. Comfort and protection are good, the quality of the leather and materials seems high, and I like the boot's height and roomy toe box. The sole is pretty beefy, so I needed to adjust the position of my bike's shifter arm. But the boot is streamlined enough to wear a pair of jeans over them. A couple minor complaints: I wish they had a shifter pad on the left toe. And the buckles feel a little cheap, like they won't last. They also can be a bit difficult to adjust and latch. This is in comparison to the buckles on the Sidi Adventure line, which have a very positive engagement and seem much sturdier, like what you find on good ski boots. The Scout buckles feel more 'plasticky.' But the Alpinestars Scout WPs have been solid so far and there's no doubt they offer a lot of boot for the money. I expect to put a lot of miles on them.
