So get's up for work, sunny morning an bit of frost, so will take the bike and watch the bends where sun has not got to. sunny all day, half hour befor i finish work rain comes down, now this is heavy stuff, its bouncing of the road, flash floods the lot. I can deal with the pissing down rain in the dark with misty visor and 38 tone trucks putting a wave of water over me and bas---tuerds that don't dip their lights but, NOT SOAKING WET FEET. Alpinestars top end boots only had uummm, year, and have done many wet rides in them no problem, but the one time i realy needed them was today, only place i can see water came in was zip. Well i have calmed down a bit now , but i was one pissed of guy when i got home took boots of and poured the water out. I have had many types of boots and none leaked like this, I have Hein Gericke jacket and pants and was dry as a bone under them , just cold wet feet. 100%water proof, my ASS.
