  6. they are waterproof i have a pair of rjays lightning pants which i wear over the top and my feet stay huggies dry. i paid $330 from my local mcas.
    like i said they offer really good protection as well, as i found out and theyre super doooper comfortable. not to easy to walk in but you get used to it.
    you get what you pay for. its a good investment. :wink:

  7. Couple of comments Twainharte...

    Breathable membranes, whether in boots or gloves, get clogged up over time by dust, sweat etc. They can't be washed, as you do with eg. Goretex hiking jackets, so they just end up acting and feeling like plastic bags. That becomes an issue in warm wet conditions or when/if you start sweating.

    Don't know how hard you ride, but an off at speed often twists/pheks the ankle joint, so a boot with a hinged ankle is an advantage.

  8. Yep, have to agree, super comfortable, great for walking in & I got mine for $300. Haven't tested them for waterproofness -whatever that word means :LOL: :cry:
