Do you guys think the Gaerne Oiled or G-Midland boots are not a good choice for hot desert riding?
Thanks KJ
Mine have never leaked and I've stood in deep water at river crossings. In my opinion, they do run hot. I'm in the south and during the summer, my feet can sweat. For me, fit was #1, followed by weather proofing and then ventilation. The last two are pretty close. Unfortunately, I've yet to find a boot that was perfect. The Midland is as close as I've ever gotten.
