I have had a pair of the Latigo Air Boots (3 1/2 years old) and have been very happy with them. I wore a size 10 for those and they fit great. With these, the length was still fine but these were much more narrow than my previous boots. I was expecting to get the same fit from these since they are the same brand. I had to take them to a cobbler to have them stretched..only cost $10 but it did the trick. I agree that the inside lace system is unnecessary and gets in the way. I see no added benefit of this feature...especially since the boots are already snug. I just got these so I can't comment about durability but my last boots are still in good shape after 3 1/2 years of use every single day...I expect these will last as long....the pair I received were in pristine condition.
This jacket was excellent protection on a ride my wife and I just took through Colorado New Mexico and Arizona.
The panels are zippered for ventilation and the liner (which we didn't use) were easily removable and easy enough to put back in.
These jackets have built in armor for just in case. The armor wasn't even a bit obtrusive.
Really if I had to sum it up:
These jackets look good and feel good!
Our leathers offer protection as well but they are hot and not all that comfortable but these jackets were everything we wanted. Even waterproof.
