The Sidi Deep Rain Boots are a whole lot of adventure boot for a great price, offering an incredible value for a quality Sidi boot you can trust to last for years of hard riding. 

You might be looking at the Deep Rains and thinking they look a bit like the Sidi Adventure Rain boots, and you might be right. With the same height, same sole and tread, and same buckles, there are certainly many similarities between the two. The Deep Rains, however, will run you $100 less, and beyond that, some key differences between the Adventures and the Deep Rains, primarily the level of protection, will make one model ultimately a better fit for your riding style. 

Technomicro Upper

To keep costs down during the build, Sidi used their Technomicro synthetic leather in place of genuine leather. Though some riders will prefer the worn-in feel of real leather, there are a few advantages to owning a synthetic boot. Sidi’s Technomicro is lightweight, durable, and highly abrasion resistant. It doesn’t degrade in wet conditions and with wear like natural leather does. This makes it a great material for use in motorcycle boots, and it’s why Sidi only uses Technomicro in their racing boots. 

Waterproof ‘Rain’ Membrane

Sidi utilized their proprietary ‘Rain’ membrane instead of the more premium Gore-Tex option in the Deep Rains. That said, the $395 Adventure ‘Rain’ model features the same membrane; you’ll have to jump up the Adventure Gore-Tex ($550) if you want that Gore lifetime guarantee. For most riders who don’t ride through typhoons or wade streams on the regular, the proprietary membrane will fit the bill and provide reliable waterproofing for years to come.

Where Gore-Tex does win points with the average rider in California is in breathability. Gore-Tex is extremely breathable, which makes it a bit more pleasant to wear than other membranes when you’re hot and sweaty. If you’ve got to have Gore-Tex, be sure to check out the Sidi Canyon Gore-Tex boots, as well as the Adventure Gore-Tex.

Buckles And Hard Parts

The Deep Rains come equipped with two of Sidi’s motocross-derived Cam-Lock buckles. They are tough, easy to use, and hold the foot and ankle firmly in place. The Deep Rains opt for a Velcro-only closure around the calf. They feature reinforced toe and heel boxes, ankle sliders, and a heavy shin protector.

In contrast to the Deep Rain’s fairly basic exterior, the Adventure boots have a lot of TPU reinforcement, along with a hinged brace that helps to prevent side to side ankle movement. All that hard plastic protection is great for offroading with a heavy bike, where tip-overs are par for the course. That said, where the Adventures are very offroad oriented, the Deep Rains are well-rounded, offering a nice balance of protection and comfort for commuting, touring, and light adventure riding.
