Water protection vs. Goretex version?
Hey guys - great site. In the video review of the Adventure Rain boot, Anthony refers to it as "waterproof". How much additional water protection would I have if I spent the additional $$$ on the Goretex version?
I have recently been wearing the SIDI Adventure Rain boots through some very impressive storm systems coming through here. I have to say, they are dry - as - a - bone! While my jacket leaked and water managed to get in through a few spots here and there in other places, my feet remained COMPLETELY dry. Now, I haven't been as far as running through water crossings yet, so I don't know how they will hold up when standing in water of any depth. For GENERAL riding, I wouldn't bother paying the significantly higher cost for the Gore-Tex versions. For anything else more adventurous...
...it may be worth considering.
