New Gear!

So I ordered my first "riding gear".
I did a ton of research and many many hours of reading/watching YouTube videos on motorcycle gear. I narrowed it down to the Klim K Fifty 1 Pants Klim K Fifty 1 Jeans - RevZilla
And the Icon 1000 Truant CE boots in brown Icon 1000 Truant CE Boots - RevZilla

What are your thoughts on my choices and what would any of you suggest for riding gear OR what are your thoughts on protective gear in general?
(Btw, I had to work a lot of overtime for that gear, so if it sucks please tell me so I can return it) THANKS!!!

I think you did a great job on the gear. Love the boots, so I will be ordering those as well in black. But as for the jeans, I liked the Scorpion brand Jean better. They are essentially the same just scorpion is a bit cheaper.

All looks good to me. I'm partial to my Rev'It! Lombards because they come with removable armor in the knees. Completely invisible unless someone's actually looking for it, otherwise, they look like nice normal jeans.

First time I'd heard of Klim jeans, but they have all the right stuff including hip padding which a lot of the cheaper riding jeans don't have so I wouldn't object to them though the heavy wash and light color isn't my preference. I haven't used Icon boots, but I'm sure they're comparable to my Teknic boots which I do really like for riding but not walking in for extended amounts of time. Also not great when stuck in the rain. After about 4 seasons (guessing) I have a broken buckle on one boot and the sole is separating from the other, but still almost new looking tread. If I can find a cobbler I'll see if he can't repair them at a decent price.

I just picked up a pair of TCX S-Sportour WP on closeout. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7VSxEtn3zA They just came in today. Tried them on, instantly more comfortable than my work boots. So glad I got them. Aside from tons of protection it'll be nice not to worry about water logged feet...did I mention they're effing comfortable?

The text above is my opinion. Feel free to ignore it. I do.
