Rain sucks but wet snow is even worse.

The problem with fishing gear is that it captures air and puffs up at speed.  You'll be riding around looking like the Stay Puff Man

Stay Puff looked cozy as fuck tho.

In fairness tho, a lot of the motorcycle-specific rain suits aren't vented either for aerodynamics at speed.

If you compare the fishing gear to something like the ICON PDX bib, there's no real difference in design.

Plus the damn thing says 100mph on it. I wonder if it'll come with a free Bass Pro trucker hat.














J/K. I'm not that desperate...yet.

I'm looking for some new "casual" or "urban" type motorcycle boots.

So far, the candidates seem to be:

Dainese Cafe Boots - military boot look



Stylmartin Indian - hiking look



Stylmartin Oxford - brogued chelsea boot?



Rev'it have some options too in this category.

Anyone have any of these and care to suggest anything I am missing?

I've got these and I love them.

Super comfortable and I've worn them off the bike as just a warm, waterproof boot.

The Vitesse ones are "almost" attractive. Using traditional colors on sport/motorcross boots just ends up being kind of weird. Kind of like Cole Haan's more extreme Nike dress shoes.

I am kind of favoring the Stylmartin Indians, the hiking boot aesthetic works for motorcycle boots which need to be a bit chunky.

I wish someone made something like a Trickers Stow but with more padding up front for the shifter and a bit more bracing/support in the back). Or maybe a sleeker Chelsea boot with dressier leather everywhere but the shifter pad.

I was 1 mouse click away from ordering those once.  I bought another jacket instead.

I like the Stylmartins, but when I was shopping no one had them in my size (15); I wound up going with Rev'It Ginzas, which I like quite a bit.
post #6809 of 6912
I think I am liking the Rev'it Mohawks.

Now to find some locally to try on.
