TCX Jupiter 2 Gore-Tex Boots
These are my first riding boots. I don't like high touring or sport boots but want to have not bad protection - so chose these. My 43 (eu) fits perfect. Very comfortable for everyday, even when you are walking around. The ankle support is good. I have about 7k km wearing them and they look like new. Very well made!
I think that they are water-resist - my feet were dry even in the heavy rain. Keep your feet warm in cold days, great airflow in summer days. Best recommendations!

Love these boots!
Was looking for low boots with good protection for hot days. Since I have the TCX X-Five boot and love the fit, I thought the Jupiter boot would work. They have same great fit, are excellent quality, and provide solid protection for a low boot.
TCX provides great boots with goretex, always my choice, at a reasonable price. Extremely happy with both of my choices. Also appreciate the excellent customer service Revzilla offers. You guys rock!

Still breaking them in.
I bought them because I was looking for a low profile water proof boot for long distance riding (but I will wear them whenever it ride) at a reasonable price. I purchased these a couple of months ago and being from the north, have not used them extensively. As I write this, it is April and I have been out a couple of times. They handle the cooler weather very well. They are are also good to walk around in, considering they are riding boots. The tread grabs foot boards when you are riding and the pavement when you are walking. Overall they are a functional, comfortable boot, but I will have to get used to the European look.

One Step Above Barefoot
First, I absolutely hate shoes/boots of any kind and go barefoot around the house all year long. As a Letter Carrier, I learned that walking 11 miles per day up and down steps in Greater Pittsburgh, my best bet was lightweight, waterproof and breathable. When I asked Revzilla Customer Service for a recommendation, these boots were one of the two suggestions.
The fit is perfect, they are very lightweight and breathable and waterproof. I have worn them all day and been very impressed. Padding everywhere you would need it and construction seems excellent. For those who wear tennis shoes, I would highly recommend these boots "just-in-case".

I was hesitant to purchase boots online because I never seem to own two pairs of shoes or boots at the same time without having to buy different sizes. This was not at all an issue, I feel like this company has put some time into ergonomics and comfort. I am used to having to break in a pair of boots for quite a while before they are comfortable, but these things felt natural after a few hours of walking around the house. These were my two biggest concerns and the proved to be groundless, so that's a good start.
As far as protection goes I'm really happy with what these boots provide, they live up to the claims on the website (and why wouldn't they revzilla rocks!). The ankle support is nice and the soles are made of very tough rubber. The heel and toe have re-enforcements, with extra padding around the ankle armor/support.
As far as style goes, it's not really my style with the pointed toe, I prefer a rounded or squared toe myself. This is absolutely ascetic choice but I thought you might like to know. Wish I could tell you more about airflow but I won't be on the road for another month or two, I can say however that appearances suggest that there shouldn't be any problem keeping my feet dry in any weather.
Features that the boots have that interest me are the armor, which I've already explained I like. The reflective bits on the back are a nice touch too. Not sure how I feel about the Velcro-strap thing that covers the laces. I'm sure once I ride in the rain I'll be glad it's there.
Good, medium armored boot. Comfortable enough to walk around in all day in most situations (maybe not long hiking trips). Fits like it should, features function as advertised. All-around good boot.
My only gripe is there is no loop at the heel to help you put the boot on. The only real problem I have with them.

Great everyday boots
First the negatives. I may be nit-picking, but I find these boots a pain to put on. Would it kill the manufacturer to add a loop on the back of the heel so you have a way to pull them on. And the velcro strap tends to get in the way when I'm tying them.
However, once I put these boots on, all my complaints went away. I've never had boots this new, with stiff support be so comfortable to wear and walk in. I wish they came in half sizes, since the size 10 is a little roomy on me but think a size 9 would be too small. They have great features, like the reinforced toe and heel and full gore-tex lining. I rode them in a light rain for a few minutes and my feet were dry. I suspect they will do just as well in a downpour. They look good and are comfortable enough to wear all day, so they would be ideal for commuting.

Robust choice for a rider
This boot is all in one option for riders. They are Goretex, water resistant, stylish, and firm boots. A good choice for all conditions.
