The pants work quite well in the weather. They keep every bit of it out. Wind, rain or cold. I don’t wear anything extra under them really. A pair of long John’s and that’s it.How well do the trousers cut out the wind?
I’ve now gotten used to adjusting the knee armor as I get on the bike. I’ve also taken to making sure it’s in the correct spot once I have them on so only minor adjustments required at the bike.
Still have not solved the zip to jacket issue but I’ve just been enjoying being able to ride and not worry about the cold or wet.
The jacket has also broken in a bit now and my electric vest fits comfortably underneath it. I don’t even need the high setting unless it’s like 36F or below. The mid setting works well most days.
The boots are most definitely water proof. After riding through a deluge of fairly epic proportions I can attest my feet remained warm and dry.Do you have any thoughts about what you're going to do about them?
In the dry, the boot soles feel really grippy. Strange that they’re so slick in the wet. They have gotten better though only slightly. However I’ve gone from missed shifts on basically every take off from a stop to roughly 2-3 per ride.
In the dry I still miss one occasionally but I imagine once they break in more that will go away. Overall I’m not disappointed in all the kit. Individually though, there are some disappointing aspects like the zip and the boot soles. Otherwise, so long as I’m warm & dry when I get where I’m going, job done.
