Firstgear Kathmandu boots?

These look good, but we all know how that goes...anyone have any information on these boots? I've watched the Revzilla video and for the price these might work quite nicely.
Thanks!

Bumping this thread. Very interested in opinions too. Anyone got hold of a pair yet?

These are half the price of many other Adventure boots out there (here's hoping thye are not half the quality).

Hell I sell Firstgear and hadn't noticed these were coming. Guess I should have read the memo...

I've seen these in person and like them a lot. Consider them a mostly street boot though. Quality on the new FG stuff is amazingly good.

I ordered a pair of bilt adventer boots, these http://www.cyclegear.com/eng/product...ots/web1011510

on sale for $49

visually, they are the same boot, the only difference is the velcro on the Bilt boot, versus the latches on the first gear boot.

they are decent boots for the money ( $49), and they are waterproof.

How many times have you had them in the rain, and how much rain ?

zero, waiting on a elbow issue before I ride for another week or so

the day the boots came in I put them on, stood in the shower and sprayed them with the hand held shower thing, then filled up the tub and sloshed back and forth for a few minutes.

the only other boots ive ever had to pass that test are the knee high rubber boots that I wear in the garden.

And yet ANOTHER company that makes an afforable, albeit untested, decent looking riding boot, and fails to make a size larger than a 13.......

I went there and they're $159. Where did you get them for $49?
