Putting on my boots after the gym this morning, the zipper on my left boot completely failed. stitching came out, the actual, uh, zip thing is only on one side, etc. A bit over a year old, so presumably out of warranty and will cost christ knows how much to get repaired. My Track pants had to go in for repair on three different non load-bearing seams after well under a year. My 4 month old GP Plus gloves are starting to come apart at the fingertips My Vector jacket had to have the zipper replaced as well, but that at least lasted a couple of years with a fat guy in it. Is it time to pony up for Dainese gear?
