I just purchased some desert boots (crazily cheap for Grade 1) and want to know the opinions of some of the people that may have worn them as to how good they are in hot sandy places - where I'll be going soon for LOTS of hiking.
Ive been issued with two different patterns, Magnums and the ones before which didnt have a name- they were just basic pigskin style dezzies in high leg. Both were fine as long as you used a decent insole and (as with all boots) good socks. I still wear both pairs (not at the same time) when I need to work on the car etc. I did notice that i sweated less in the older pattern.
I bought a pair from that site for summer rough shooting/bunny blatting as I suffer from sweaty plates at the best of times... pair of insoles and decent socks and can't fault them for light work. Admittedly I'm usually carrying no more than rifle/12 bore, a few rounds and other odds & sods and (hopefully) some tasty fluffy animals but they seem supportive over rough ground, ploughed fields etc. I'm even thinking about retiring the KSB's for the summer in their favour due to overheating.
Anyway, can't fault the company - I've bought bits & pieces off them in the past as I'm too skint/tight to pay for RealTree camo and the only thing that's a bugger is the fixed p&p which is heavy if you just want one bit of kit.
