Boots Scout H2OFBR029 1 Review
They look like comfortable shoes for walking and they are, but they are also highly protective motorcycle boots with many features for riding in as much comfort as possible. The sole specifically contributes to both purposes: it is made with grip to stay in control, stability for standing and flexibility for walking.
The hydratex® liner will keep your dry foot no matter how hard it rains and thermoformed protection ensures your foot won’t twist or bend unnaturally while maintaining stability and regulating the foot position. Sizes 38-47
- injected ankle cup
thermoformed heel cup
The heel of the boot is reinforced for added safety. The rider won't notice it while wearing as the hard plastic has been heated to mold it into the perfect shape. The reinforced heel cup also contributes to a better posture of the foot.
The toe area of the boot has been reinforced with a thermoformed hard plastic toecap. Thermoformed means the plastic has been heated to model the perfect shape. The rider won't feel it this critical feature when wearing the boot, but will benefits from the added safety.
Coated leather has undergone a process that makes it water-repellent and soil-resistant.
Consisting of 100% high-performance polyamide yarns, PWR|shell 500D takes the best properties of a nylon with a high melting point, tremendous tear and abrasion-resistance, and excellent durability and then puts the unique REV’IT! design stamp on it. It provides high-performance protection for every rider.
Suede is a type of leather with a napped finish. Due to its texture and open pores, suede can absorb liquids quickly. We use suede as a visor wiper on our gloves, putting its absorbency to good use for keeping your field of vision clear.
A waterproof layer is laminated onto a carrier to construct the REV’IT! hydratex®|Z-liner membrane. The carrier, in turn, protects the membrane against wear-and-tear damage, and the seams of the membrane are taped to ensure waterproofing. The Z- liner is constructed between the lining and the outer shell. The REV’IT! hydratex®|Z-liner membrane is used in garments that demand a high level of all-weather protection.

This season i purchased a pair of these to upgrade my daily commuter boots, including using them on rainy days. I liked the way they look, offer good protection and they are comfortable to wear for riding, but not so much for walking. The main disadvantage for me was that they are not waterproof. I had water coming in after only 30' of riding in the rain in the second month i used them. Revit happily provided a new pair, but the second one also let's water in after second month of use. Nice boots, but they are not waterproof.
