Likewise to my "best equipment" thread, what are the products that you've spent your hard earned money on that turned out to be junk? AXO gear. I've bought a few pair of AXO boots. First pair were extremely uncomfortable outside of the parts dept. When ridig, I had to wear two pair of socks because there was an unflexible steel shank in the side (inside the leg) of the boot that would rub and push on my ankle bone. Very painful. Second pair of AXO boots had a tough plastic around the ankle on the outside. They got a hole in them in the first week from the kickstarter, which punched through the side when my wet foot slipped off of it. All of the AXO gloves that I bought didn't last very long either. The ends of the fingers would rip open after not too long. I never really knew this was a problem, until I bought some Sinisalo gloves, and a pair of MSR gloves, which outlasted the AXOs tenfold.
