I wear this boot off road trail and adventure riding, boot has kept my feet dry and are comfortable. I did injure my foot on a root offroading, toe box doesn't offer the same protection MX boot. Wish someone would make a waterproof MX boot! Boot has good shifting and braking feel on both my KTM xcf-w & BMW 1200 GS. Fit is accurate and are easy to walk in! I like them better than the SIDI rains, I returned because they leaked badly. I highly recommend these boots for adventure riding.

MSR Base Layer Short Sleeve The same great qualities as the Base Layer Long Sleeve in a short sleeve Base Layer fabric is 50 lighter than the standard cotton TShirt. After 60 minutes of exercise the Base Layer fabric releases 80 of its moisture after 30 minutes of rest, cotton releases only 40 of its moisture after 30 minutes of rest Made with compression garments that will hold your muscles in place longer and reduce body fatigue. Less chance for pulled and sore muscle tissue Two different layers of fabric Inner layer contains fibers that will wick the moisture off the skin quicker, creating a cooler inner climate. Once the moisture is separated from your skin the outer layer will evaporate the moisture evenly and fast Fabric is spun with wicking and antibacterial treatments

Replaced Sidi Rain with this boot after ankle sprain after a fall. This boot has much more protection and is still comfortable. I do alot of trail work so comfort is important. This boot is light and easy to walk in. Boot does squeak. Have not worn in wet conditions yet, but my Sidi Rains kept me dry (same liner).
Very pleased with this purchase.

Worn this jacket for 200 miles this winter here in Wahington State. Jacket has kept me warm and dry. I like the way the jacket fits with the liners installed. I have not worn without the liners, I cannot review ventilation. I am using the Sand pants with this jacket, at the 30% discount this riding suit is a great bargin. Again great service at Revzilla!

I've ridden around 300 miles in these pant in low 40-50 degree wet weather here in Wasbington State and have stayed warm and dry. Measure your waist, donot use your pant/levi size. The pants use your measured waist size. I have only used the pant with both liners installed at this time, cannot review for ventilation (warm weather). Great service again from Revzilla!

Sidi Discovery Rain Boots Features Membrane equipped to add a water resistant yet breathable barrier between the elements and the riders feet. Soft rubber sole for maximum grip. Replaceable strap system. Top grain leather and Lorica construction. Composite inner sole. Removable arch support. Exclusive cam-lock buckle system. Cambrelle lining Slim, cool non-bootie design. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel. Non-Bootie Designs Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome add to the boot's thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the rider's performance and comfort. Buckles Sidis exclusive cam-lock buckle system is acknowledged as the finest system on the planet. It must be as most of Sidis competitors have attempted to copy various aspects of it. The cam-lock buckle system incorporates a strap memory retention system. Adjust the straps once and they will be at the same position for every ride after that! No more readjusting for every ride or mid-day during a ride. Heat Shields Each Sidi boot is equipped with an anti-heat undressed leather protection panel at the same height of most motorcycles exhaust heat shields. Replaceable Parts Every bolt on component of each Sidi off road boot is available separately. Riders can change the various components to replace items that have worn or have been damaged in a crash or to make a custom colored boot to match his/her personal taste. Composite Insole A cushioned liner is provided that can be removed if the rider desires a more roomy fit. Sidi does not use steel shanks riveted to its insole like most manufactures, details such as this enable Sidi boots to enjoy a multi year service life versus the competitors multi month lifespan as over time, a steel shank can deteriorate, rust and fracture exposing the rider to injury. Lining Cambrelle is a lining that, due to its particular polyimide structure, guarantees a rapid drying rate after the boot gets wet or sweaty. This prevents the onset of mold forming which extends the boots lifespan dramatically. The Teflon treated mesh panels in the rear calf area of the boot allow humidity to escape while the boot is in use.

I wear these boots for adventure riding year round and offroad in the winter here in Washington state. My feet stay warm and dry, except when water has entered over the top of the boot. I would like alittle more protection, but they may lose some of their comfort. Boots are very comfortable. Boots have over 500 miles and are wearing well.

The gloves kept my hands both warm and dry after a 80 mile ride in the rain on my BMW 1200GS, using the heated grips. You have to make sure your inner liner sleeve is pulled up to you palm or your inner wrists get cold. The fit is snug , but should stretch with use. I am very happy with purchase, best winter gloves I've ever owned.
