Talking Some new accessories!

To start off, i currently have a Cortech GX Sport mesh jacket with leather wear i need it and a removeable liner, joe rocket "UFO" leather gloves, and a HJC helmet.

Gloves

Gloves are great! Jacket isn't too bad at all for the price, keeps cool as long as your moving...but i don't think i could ask for anything better living in Florida.


Anyways! On with the new stuff...just received my order in today from mc-superstore. I ordered the Icon backpack in black, Icon Strongarm pants, and Icon Field Armor Chukka boots.

The backpack is great, i love it! Pants for pretty cool too. There's no real padding in them, but the material is sturdy as hell so it will do it's job saving my skin. Only thing is i thought the patch on the butt was kinda gay so i spent way too much time taking it off lol...but they look great now!

About the boots...they seem real sturdy but i have two complaints. They're heavy as hell and in size 13 they are way to cluncky for easy shifting. I haven't even walked around in them, just sat on my bike but decided to send them back.

I could really use some suggestions for boots...i don't wait full race boots, but to want something that has ankle support. Am i better to just go with a leather work boot?

Hope your new gear works out for you. I've been thinking about picking up a pair of the ICON Super Duty cargo pants for running around town.

As far as boots go, I've got a pair of Trekstra Tactical boots. They cover the same area as racing boots, but are very light, and fit like a running shoe. You can't even tell that they're boots if you wear you pant legs over them. Cheaper than Race boots too.
