Had these boots for 6 months now. Use them to commute to work and also long 8-10 hour rides. Covered about 12,000km in them through tropical rain and hot sunny days.
This boot always kept my feet dry in tropical rain and even when water get in the boots, it drys up pretty fast. During sunny days, my feet does not feel hot and sweaty. Excellent to walk in. Use them in the office and in shopping malls. Being Italian made, the design blends well with jeans and tailored pants.
Overall, love these boots for its features, protection and comfort it gives.
Recommend to all riders commuting and long distance riders.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Received the Rev'it Axis pant in Oct 2012. I have been using the over-pant to commute to work over my office tailored pant. It is 100% waterproof.
It is easy to put on and pull off with the full length zipper along the each side of the leg up to the waist. And gaining access to the pockets inside is also easy. With velcro at the bottom of the pant, you can adjust the size to fit the type of shoe or boot you are using.
There are 2 buttons on the waist on each side of the pant and elastic band to secure the pant to your waist. Adjustment to fit your waist is confined to these 2 button position. Velcro instead of buttons will be better if you have a big belly.
The knee protection is excellent and is adjustable using the velcro provided.
In warm tropical weather, I don't feel the pant to be too warm and uncomfortable. If needed, I will open up the top zipper slightly to allow some airflow into the pant.
The waterproofing on this pants is good except for area at your buttock. Felt a bit damp after a heavy down pour the other day. However it did not leave a watermark on my tailored pant.
Overall, I am happy with this purchase. For this price you'll get waterproof over-pant worn over your tailored pant with good knee protection. Follow the sizing chart closely and the video to put on and off is very beneficial.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Got this jacket in size 50 and pant in size 48 in July 2012 and been using it for daily commute to work. Use the pant while touring only.
It gives you excellent fit with many points for adjustment to fit your body and size. The build quality is excellent. Has lots of pockets to store your stuff and 2 waterproof pockets with zipper each on the jacket and pant.
In warm tropical heat without the Gore Tex liner on and with all the air vents zipper opened and main jacket zipper 3/4 drawn, you can get ample air circulation into the jacket. You do feel warm when stationary. Once you reached your destination, be sure to open up the main zipper to get maximum ventilation.
In tropical rain with the Gore Tex liner on, you are assured of not getting wet at all. And after heavy rain the jacket and pant will dry up quickly within 2-4 hours under the fan.
The protection padding provided is top of the range. Except for the back protection for the jacket. Planning to replace that with a better protection padding.
Overall, i'm happy with the Durban Gore Tex jacket and pant. It may cost higher than other make but it gives excellent protection, build quality and air ventilation.
Highly recommended to all riders and tourers.
Yes, I recommend this product.
