I have the military version of these boots and they are great and wanted to get another pair. They are very similar to the older combat hiker models. Very tough and well made.

    I really like STP, but they dropped the ball on this one. The boots looked good, but the shoe lace eye on the left boot was defective. I returned them, and they sent the same pair back, or there are a number of boots with the exact same defect. Then they charged me shipping on the second return. I complained and they gave me a $10 gift card. The tried to use the gift card, but there was no credit on it. I guess once you fall into the black hole there is no way out!!

    Great boots. Fit real good. Only problem was/is that one of the lace eyelets was missing. Little metal clip for lacing as it were

    "R"egular is very narrow. Tight and uncomfortable boots. I bought them for hiking but they are not for this..
    And I don't see any Gore-Tex® marks on it.

    I really had high hopes for an American made hiking boot, but these are easily outclassed by any european manufacturers hiker. After wearing them on a 30 mile, 2day backpacking trip (with a previous month of break-in time), I finally gave up on these. They may have a place on the farm or for work, but they lack in basic support/comfort/breathabilty you need on the trail. Worst of all, the absence of speed laces and a locking lace stud, made for frequent, time consuming re-adjusting.

    Thankfully, Sierra has the best return program I've ever used. So, Now do I go Lowa or Asolo for my replacement pair?

    I was disappointed in the fit
    the top 3 or 4 eyelets should have been hooks for easy lace-up...I would bet I have bought 15 pair of boots from STP... I never return anything, but, I did return these boots..
    Great service from STP, I will be making future orders, sometimes things just dont work out

  • “what are 2nds?”
    Asked by baby from Unknown on 2/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
    • What are the differences among closeouts, overstocks, and 2nds?|• Closeouts: may be last year's model or color, yet always first hand quality. |• Overstocks: arises when our inventory is too high, and needs to be drastically reduced - always first hand quality. |• 2nds: Minor cosmetic blemishes or irregulars which do not affect the fit, performance, or longevity of the item. Label is usually clipped by the manufacturer. A small flaw means big savings.
