V-Lite 2

rated 2 of 5 stars Had a similar experience, only on night 2 of a 3-day backpack trip. Very wet night. My sleeping bag, myself, and gear were completely soaked. Wondered if I would die of hypothermia on the Washington coast, but fortunately my sleeping bag still conserved a fair amount of heat even though soaked through and I had brought a bunch of Hot Hands packets, too. Still, not the ideal sleeping conditions. Full review

Magnum Tanker

rated 5 of 5 stars Most comfortable footwear I've ever worn. I'd love to find another pair! I found the boots in a Youth size. The fit was perfect for me. The boots were not authorized by the U.S. Army, but I blacked out the logo and wore them anyway for several years, in the field and in garrison.

The fit is a bit tight so I went up 1/2 size and fit was better. The first pair had a cracked shank after a short neighborhood walk. Sent back with no problems for replacement. With the second pair one of the… Full review

Altitude IV WP

rated 3 of 5 stars Sorry, people, but the soles on both my boots came loose. Had them reglued, but within a week they came off again. How can it be fixed? Full review

Sequoia Low

rated 0.5 of 5 stars These were a replacement for the Altitude Trek Low, which broke down within months of purchase. Recommended by the NZ Importer/agents for Hi-Tec. First impression was good: These shoes were a replacement for Altitude Trek Low, which were totally wrecked after the inner sole broke down within six months.  The NZ Agents/Importers recommended the Sequoia Low as a replacement, but gave me choice of shoe as the replacement. I took their advice and picked up the new shoes.  Again, from the box a great… Full review
