I got these boots wanting to move up from ordinary work boots to get some extra protection, sadly it didn't have much more. There are no hard parts over the ankles, the heel area just as reinforced as my work boots and the shin protection isn't even hard! it's a soft easily bendable plastic material! The fit is also awkward. It's very narrow on the foot but on the area hugging the ankle it's a bit looser. I also wish that this boot only had velcro at the top. The bottom area does nothing but get in the way and give the boot an awkward shape.
The things I liked about the boot though was that the sole wasn't too stiff, making it easy to walk in, the reinforced toe box, the grip you get from the sole, the venting, and the overall look. However I don't think this worth $200. Spend the extra $15 and buy some Sidi fusions.

LOVE this jacket. It looks great, feels good against the skin and is very comfortable. The only cons with this is that the arm sleeves are slightly too long and air flow as not as good compared to my last jacket (tourmaster air intake 2), but that's just me nit picking. Something I also noticed is the lack of the flexi-snap feature on the neck shown on the video and product pictures. Instead it now has 2 buttons, but this isn't really a big deal. All in all, this jacket is great bang for your buck.
