    Gortex is designed to allow water vapour to pass through it. This requires a thermal gradient that doesn't normally exist on a motorcycle.

    In most designs the gortex layer is the innermost layer so everything gets wet except your skin. So now all your gear is sopping wet allowing the windblast to evaporate it and cool you down (further diminishing any thermal gradient).

    FFS what is your problem?

    If it's all the same to you I'll choose to post how and what I please, unless I missed a meeting in which you got put in charge of policing posting styles.

    My Badlands is still 100% waterproof but it's only a couple of years old so lets see how it goes.....

    My Sidi Adventures must be 8 or 9 years old now and have had serious abuse as my everyday boot, light trail riding when I can't be arsed with my MX boots along with a couple of trips to N Africa and all over Europe. They are still in one piece and still 100% waterproof ~ amazing boots and some so it sounds like you've been unlucky?

    Taken the suit back to the importer, Adventure Spec where it was purchased in May 2013 and they are looking at it ( Sounding favorable at the moment)

    They replaced the failed Gloves on the spot even though they were bought from ABW

    The boots have to go back to Feridax for assessment as the boot warranty is 12 months but the Gore tex is a different matter so that could be a long drawn out argument.

    I still cant quite get over how it all failed on the same day

    I agree, it's far too delicate, works ok in boots but crap for everything else.

    Err that depends

    If it was about 3 fucking mongs on sports bikes then no **

    If not then yes



    **The aforementioned mongs on Sportsbikes were mates of a mate who I had never met before the trip and if i never meet them again it will be too soon as they really do give bikers a bad name. I ended up abandoning them half way home on Monday as i was so fucked off with them

    Are you sure you'd not just pissed yourself as you're of the age where bladder control can be an issue

    Now you've done it. 1 mention of fish and chips and Bear will be here, telling us all about his latest log burner, breadmaker ebike or other glittery trinket that has caught his eye this week

    Wow, a bit of an overreaction ! I think Blackal had a point - a simple explanation helps everyone reading the post and is far better than a useless "it's crap" type of comment.

    What happened to simply wearing a one piece oversuit over your leathers..?

    Works for me, and a decent oversuit is only about £60 or so, mine's from HG.

    BMW K1100LT (1995).

    Harley FXST (1989).
