These boots are awesome! I ordered slightly small and when they arrived I thought they were slightly snug. Once the leather started to loosen up they fit like a dream. The ankle tops are loose enough to tuck pants in or if wearing summer mesh pants that are left untucked they let air in from the top to help keep cool. I have wide feet and they still managed to fit well.
I forgot my work-boots one day when I rushed to work (Auto-repair shop) and I ended up in these for 10 hours! I was dreading it, and at the end of the day my feet felt fine and they were actually comfortable! I was amazed and couldn't be happier with them.
I've been in the rain multiple times and they are indeed very well waterproof. They will work to keep your feet perfectly dry. I did make the mistake of wearing non-waterproof mesh pants one day and got caught in a downpour, and water ran down my leg into the boot. This is certainly not the fault of the boot, but the nice thing was that I set them toe-up in the bathtub and put a fan on them and they were dry by morning for my ride to work.
My motorcycle is my primary transportation, and these are holding up well.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These pants have been great so far. I've been riding in 110F South Carolina Heat waves to 68F evenings and the pants have held up wonderfully. On the really hot rides, I just wear boxers underneath and they're as comfortable as can be. On my commute to work, I often wear them as over-pants for convenience and they pull this double duty comfortably. The armor is well placed and the pants stay in place while riding/walking/sitting etc. The zippers have been tough, and I have no fears of them breaking or wearing out.
I really like that the pants zip all the way up to the upper thigh on the outside. Adding a pull-zip on the top-side of the zipper so you can vent a little on a hot ride has cooled me off on more than one occasion.
If you get caught in the rain, you will get soaked since they have a lot of mesh breathing area. It is NOT advertised as waterproof, so I did not expect them to be, but I've been caught in a few downpours. In light drizzle/mist I've had no problems staying dry.
Inside the top there are loops and a zipper for connecting to a riding jacket which is a nice touch that serves to keep the jacket from riding up if you're sliding along on your back.
5/5 bang for the buck - for the price, they easily match many much more expensive pants in quality and features.
5/5 style - not loud and obnoxious, I like the plain look while keeping the pants solid to riding business. the reflective bits are subtle and nice for visibility.
4/5 comfort - While riding a couple hundred miles at a time, I have never had a thought about my pants. In fact, I've preferred them over jeans. Except for a slight airflow issue, that I also had in jeans, but only got relief while wearing these pants.
5/5 - Protection & Durability - Armored in all the right places, mesh in places that need to breath with a heat resistant strip along the inside right leg. all contact areas seem to be well thought-out and reinforced.
Air-Flow - The mesh bits are perfect, but little to no airflow from hips to lower back/butt area. This has necessitated an occasional peg-stand to allow air from mesh inner thigh area to balloon the pants and cool my rear-end. This didn't work in jeans.
Features - All in all, they're great pants for riding. I've worn them all-weather, and didn't mind getting wet. I don't have any rain-gear at the moment anyhow. I just keep a change of clothes along for the rides. adjustable Elastic with front button and zipper make them easy to get in and out of, even with boots on. They fit just right either as pants, or over-pants which was a pleasant surprise. No bunching/folding etc, which makes for a comfortable fit.
It does get a little warm behind the knee-pads but flexing your knee outward off the tank allows the mesh to push air up and through.
Yes, I recommend this product.
