I'm trying to decide between these two boots. I live in the PNW and do a lot of trail riding, but also do 2-3 week rides once a year where it'd be nice to get out and walk around the campsite, town, etc. The Sidi boot fits all the marks, especially since it has full goretex. But I'm not completely sold on the protection for trail riding. The two problems with the tech 7 is that they're not waterproof, and I'm not sure how comfortable they'd be off the bike. For those of you that own either pair, what do you think? Is the protection on the Sidi plenty good, or is the extra protection from the tech 7's worth having a non-waterproof, not as comfortable boot?
