Review: The Brown Magnum Scorpion Boots

m8

I’ve been privileged enough to be able to wear several tactical boots from the most diverse brands, but I had never had the opportunity to use Magnum boots before. Since the reputation of the brand precedes itself, I had quite some expectations from these boots, even though these aren’t the top of the line pair from the brand.

Also these are the exact same boots issued by the British Army, only difference is that the latter are in Tan.

So let’s see how the troops feel when wearing these Magnum boots!

I came across this Brazilian company that is producing what looks to be perhaps the first ever fully licensed  A-TACS FG boot.

These are made with Cordura Denier 500 and are water and UV repellent.

Even the sole bears the A-TACS FG pattern and is anti-skidding. Overall the boots weight 692 grams and are also available in A-TACS AU, Multicam, Woodland, Brown, Black and Tan.

Review: Danner TFX Rough-Out GTX A-TACS

Published on November 18, 2014 by in News, Reviews

Danner_TFX-GTX_A-TACS_review_01

This was THE pair of boots that I wanted to get my hands on. They left a lasting impression on my mind the very first time I saw them at the official A-TACS website and have been on my mind ever since. I also love my NB Abyss boots since they proved like a very nice pair of tactical boots, however there were some aspects where the Danner could outperform them, but I wasn’t sure, so I had to try them!

Also this time I wanted a more military fashion boots that would provide higher protection while in the field. Fortunately, the good people from Danner sent me a pair of these boots to answer all my questions.

Bates – Recondo Jungle Boots

Published on July 15, 2014 by in News

Bates Logo

Bates Footwear, a division of Wolverine Worldwide (NYSE: WWW) announces the launch of the Recondo jungle boot a low-absorption, quick drying, durable solution designed to provide secure footing in multi-terrain jungle regions. Named for the Reconnaissance and Commando Training Course developed in the 1950s at Fort Campbell, the Recondo meets the need for a Berry Compliant jungle/tropical combat boot for today’s warfighters and peacekeepers.

To meet the demands of today’s evolving asymmetrical threats, Bates partnered with the United States Army Special Forces Command (USASFC) to develop the Recondo. Bates received valuable performance feedback after the 75th Army Ranger Regiment tested the Recondo in Central America during the winter of 2014. As a result, the Recondo boot delivers an exclusive lighter weight, quick drying durable leather and textile upper and has been designed to provide the best breathability possible for the spectrum of jungle combat situations.

Bates Recondo

“The Recondo provides a much needed jungle boot update for the next generation of our armed services,” said Bates Footwear President Onder Ors. “Based on the specific feedback we received from our development partners in the Special Operations Forces, Bates has created the only boot specifically engineered for hot, wet and humid combat environments common in tropical regions.”

The Recondo boot is made with Wolverine Warrior Leather™ which is lighter more durable, breathable, and is water, stain, and oil resistant. The MultiCam® ripstop nylon fabric enhances performance as it is lightweight, abrasion resistant, and highly durable. The blended upper material is light, strong, comfortable and has near infrared properties (NIR) making the boot less visible in low light environments.

The Recondo utilizes a unique lacing system developed based on feedback from operators and incorporates Bates’ many years of experience with lace-to-toe styles. This assures that all users can easily utilize the speed lace system and achieve proper fit and closure.

The design of the solid rubber outsole is the Vibram® Mutant, which has a deeper, more aggressive lug depth for off road traction, a multi-directional leading edged that enhance slip-resisting properties, and a rounded heel for natural touch down. This sole design has also incorporated a customized rubber compound that is durable enough to withstand Special Operations Forces use in hot weather, temperate weather, and mountainous operational environments.

The Recondo will be available for purchase beginning Fall 2014.

Review: Lowa Zephyr GTX High

Lowa Zephyr GTX

I don’t like reviewing boots until I’ve had chance to wear them in properly through various environments and put some good miles on them. Seeing as I’ve owned these boots for about a year and figured it about time I gave them a write up.

I’m a creature of habit and the first thing I do with any boots is get them on, lace them up and take them round the same 5 mile route. This gives me a common ground on which to get my first impressions.

Before I even got these out of the box you can’t help but notice the feather weight of these boots. I mean for a second I thought the box might actually be empty! They weigh in at a ridiculously light 1100g (approx).. which compared to my previous Lowa Desert Elites (circa 1500g) is practically lighter than air!

lowa-zephyr1

On my feet the first thing I noticed was the flex, they almost instantly take to the shape of your foot without any unnecessary rigidity in the usual high mobility spots (bridge of the foot, Achilles areas), right then I knew I’d got myself some tactical slippers!

I took them out on the 5 mile loop expecting some rubbing and aching as is usual with all new boots, but a few hours later on my return there wasn’t a sign of any discomfort at all. Moreover they’d stood up to the traditional Manchester monsoon excellently with no leaking or seeping at all (Note: as is common with most boots the GTX indicates Gortex lining).

Since then I’ve used these on 3 Milsim Ops (100+ hours) and as many training events enduring weather varying from -7 degrees blizzard, torrential rain, + 27 degrees sunshine and about everything in between. Not once have my feet felt anything but lovingly hugged by an absurd amount of comfort, and even more surprising, a higher than expected level of support from a boot so flexible and light. I can only put this down to the way the sole section form up the side of the boot cradling the foot.

lowa-zephyr2

As you can see from the photos the boots have held up remarkably well showing no significant signs of wear and zero signs of damage at all. Even the interior is still as good as new with no signs of wear and tear.

lowa-zephyr3

I’ve used nothing but Lowa boots for 4 years (which is only 3 pairs of Lowa’s all of which are still going strong) and these are the best i’ve had to date by quite some way.

They excel in terms of comfort, durability and haven’t failed to offer support through all the environments I’ve used them in to date. In conclusion they’re a lightweight boot with a heavyweight punch!

Highly recommended combat creepers!

Review made by Voodoo One-Zero member of the Task Force Voodoo Airsoft Team based out of the UK. Once again,thanks for letting us publish your review mate!
