You need some more detailed pics of the products on the website. The three layers of the jacket/pants, etc. Are the desert pants in the boot or overboot?

I just got a pair of the Monza boots in the mail... I bought them on Ebay really cheap.

So far they look good and seem fairly well made. They are stiff, I'm not used to street only boots so it seems to me the armor is lacking (has shin plate, but that's about it, nothing but thickish leather over the ankle bones, no hard heel cup and no cup over the toes, but the toe does have a padded leather shifter plate). They actually, sorta' remind me of Tourmaster boots. The boot has a 2/3rd's length gusset and closes with velcro (no zipper). Soles are comfy but not overly flexy. Fit is a bit loose (size 12 boot, size 11 3/4 foot). I had a pair of Vega boots (same price range) and these are 20x better made.

So far not bad for $55... I think they would be good boots. Looks like I'll see how waterproof they are on my way back and forth to work tonight.

Akito gear

Also interested in how the gear holds up. I send the OP an email, a little concerned that there is only 1 post from them.

And from talking to them at Indy, I think the 20% discount was in error and invalid.

How do you think these boots would be for enduro/trail riding?

Happy Customer

So I purchased the jacket...I like it, the sizes run very small, I normally wear an XL and after returning the first I ended up with a 3XL that fits like an XL would...so order big. I like the style, the stitching is staying in place, and lots of pockets: for the low price no complaints.

Which colour did you buy? Can you post some pics as well as your height, weight and build? Please?

Got mine today. Gotta say fit and finish is amazing. We'll see how it holds up, but thus far I'm completely pleased with it.
