The absolute best I've bought is my current boots Hein Gerricke Touareg which are still going strong after 100000 miles. Current equivalent is http://www.hein-gericke.co.uk/boots-...r-stiefel.html
After that comes :-
Triumph Tiger motorcycles.
Army surplus Goretex over trousers.
2002 black Tiger955i, 72000 miles and counting.
2012 black Tiger800XC, 40000 miles and counting.
