Waterproof Over Boots
on: 12 Nov 18, 02:43:24
Has anyone tried https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/337095 Held Boot Skin? What are they like to get on and off and to ride in?

I've got a pair of RST TrackTech Evo waterprooof boots which are really good but do let some water in in really heavy conditions.

They look like they'll be a right faff  :087: but might do the job. Wonder how well they'll cope/last with gear shifts  :187:

I've got the same boots as you and never had a problem with wet feet. I just use this once a month on them when I clean them after normal riding: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nikwax-Waterproofing-Leather-Cream-Transparent/dp/B00AQTGJSM/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1542034272&sr=8-5&keywords=nikwax+waterproofing+for+leather  :028:

I use Renapur and have done for years on my boots, gloves, leathers and sofa! Really good stuff if applied properly. I had a really wet commute home last week and the boots leaked for the first time ever. And wet = cold.

Never used over boots before, unless you count carrier bags. I don't want more faff that I already have for winter riding.

I use Grangers G-wax natural beeswax.

Apply 2 layers and then reapply once been through a rain storm.
