Initial thoughts.....

Craigslist can be your friend. Especially when looking to outfit the whole family in gear. Since both you and your wife are just looking for relaxed riding you can really ride 75% of gear available, in my opinion. It's only once you start riding a lot that you'll each find your true "riding styles". At that point it makes sense to find the gear that is most optimized for that.

At this point as long as you're boots are comfortable you'll have a good time. After 20 days out you'll know exactly what is working and what isn't. At this point you can sell off the gear that you didn't love and scoop up some other stuff to try.

Hope that made sense.....
