The EX pant requires you to unzip and open up the
inner and outer panels to put the pant legs over the boots.
There is a tab on the bottom of the inner leg panel that
you can clasp to the boots so the pant doesn’t ride up.
There is ample ventilation all over
the Fox Legion Offroad gear set,
The fingertips of the Legion
gloves are touchscreen-friend-
ly, so you can answer calls or
text without removing them.
The knees stretch enough to fit knee
pads underneath, and there is a vent
on each knee for airflow. The bottom of
the legs of the pant has an inner Velcro
collar that fits over your boots and
keeps trail debris out, while an outer
zippered layer closes over your boot as
well and has an adjustable cuff for a
good fit. The pant goes for $249.95.
The $39.95 Legion gloves are
comfortable and fit well. They keep
your hands warm without being too
thick, and the palm of the glov es are
reinforced for longevity. The top of the
gloves have rubber ribs that protect
your hands from bushes and roost
hitting them. The Legion gloves are
easy to slip on and have an adjustable
INSTINCT OFFROAD BOOTS
Fox’s Instinct Offroad boots were
designed with the trail rider in mind.
They are very protective, with features
like a hinge lockout system that stops
hyperflexion. The buckle closure system
is easy to use, and there are four straps
for a great fit. The boot is made from
Fox’s Duratac rubber compound that
provides grip and durability to the boot.
One of the key features to the Instinct
is the lug pattern sole that provides
great traction when walking around off
the quad, and the lugs reduce buildup of mud so you continuously have
traction to your pegs. It takes some
time to wear these $574.95 boots in,,
but once you do, they are comfortable
to wear for hours of riding.
Fox has been making great riding
gear for a few decades, and they
carry items that can suit any type of
riding. The Legion Offroad gear set
is designed for cold-weather riding,
but it has great ventilation systems
for when it warms up outside. The
only complaints we have are that the
zippers can get a little stuck when they
get dirty and the fit of the gear is tight,
so going a size up might be a good
idea. The boots fit normally and are
very well made. The buckle system is
one of the best we have used as well.
