Merlin G24 Titan Outlast Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Great service as usual from Sportsbike. The boots are comfortable, and seem to be good quality, I haven't worn them in rain yet so can't comment of waterproofing? The double zip design makes them very easy to put on and take off. One word of warning I had to order a larger size as they seem to be a small fitting.
My second Merlin purchase, the first being a hatton jacket. Just ridden 1200 miles up to Isle of skye, Apple Cross etc and had a mixture of heavy rain even a little hail and some sun. Very pleased with my purchase, so very comfy and warm/ cool. I like the inner boot and double zipp to get on and off. Faultless, can recomend sizes are spot on too. Cheers Merlin good British make.
This boot is excellent, thick leather and comfortable in a same time, less than 24 hours it felt like I have had it for years, test in cold and wet,no problem, the design doesn't let water penetrate inside the boot. Very happy with it.
Not bad at all
Surprised with the quality of these boots. The fit perfectly so size seems to be true. They are thick but feel nice and comfy. Went out on the bike for a couple of hours, wet and cold, but never thought or felt I was wearing brand new boots. I am not sure what to expect from the Outlast membrane but I dont think they kept my feet warmer - but I could be wrong. Also easy and comfortable to walk with. One thing that I would like to see is the gear change protector to go all the way down to the side - I tend to change gear with the side of the boot.. a small issue for me hence the 4 stars
Quality and Value.
As others have said this boot is great quality for the price. The leather is thick and is stiff at first, however they do not take long to break in.I would be more concerned if they did not require wearing in. The fit is a little on the small side. Very warm and so far water proof although they have yet to be severely tested. The zips are sturdy and look like they will last. I am normally wary of zips on boots because of bad experiences in the past. No such concerns with these though.
The boots surprise for the quality of the materials in relation to the price. Very robust but at the same time flexible once you use it. The size matches the one I normally use, so I do not need to order a larger size. The order arrived earlier than expected. Great service and attention by Sportbikeshop. Thank you.
Impressive delivery time: order the 28/12/16 at 7:28, delivery the 30/12/16 at 11h34 (home, in France) Quality boots: tested by -4 ° c, protect from cold, not yet tested with heavy rain but I do not care, worn all day, they are a little heavy but they are comfortable and do not hurt feet even walking (I greased the leather). Possibility of widening the boot at the level of the calf so they can fit exactly, rubber soles with relief. No unpleasant surprises, I ordered my usual size.
These are well made tough boots, that seem to be able to withstand anything the weather can throw at them. I rode 40 miles in torrential rain the other day (and I really do mean torrential). When I got home, I have to admit that the leather was a little damp (I had yet to apply any leather treatment) but my feet were bone dry and warm. This is a quite a revelation for me because, before buying these Merlin Titan G24s I've had several pairs of supposedly 'waterproof' boots over the years by several makers and none really lived up to the hype in heavy rain. The protection seems good and the outlast lining does it's job really well without feeling bulky. The sole is tough and has good tread. Being constructed in thicker leather than most other boots, they were a bit stiff when changing gear for a while, but have now broken in nicely and are very comfortable, even when walking. The only very slight downside for me, is that the pleated panels at the front and rear seem to be vinyl rather than leather, but that is nit-picking really and I suppose it would have been difficult to keep pleated leather panels waterproof. All things considered, I'm very pleased with the Merlin Titan G24s and with Sportsbikeshop's excellent, fast service.
Very well made
Great boots. Very well made, thick leather that softens up really quickly. Boots feel very supportive and safe, a little tight at first possibly due to having a high instep and wide feet, saying that they have already become more comfortable after a very short time and can only get better. The high tech lining dose keep your feet at just the right temperature and dry. Overall the quality and style is better than I thought it would be and thanks to the fast delivery from Sportsbikeshop am very happy.
