User Review: Hi-Tec Magnum
Materials: leather with nylon upper
Use: police, military, hiking
Break-in Period: none
Weight: approximately 3 lbs
Price Paid: $50 (+/-)
The good stuff: Reasonably priced, lightweight, fairly cool in summer, good traction sole, comfort is totally acceptable, replacement laces are available.
The bad stuff: Quality is about the same as a tennis shoe, seams begin coming unstitched within days, nylon uppers allow quantities of sand and dirt to filter through, tops could be an extra inch or two higher to help keep out brush or to keep BDU pant legs in.
Overall: Not a quality product by any standard, but does give acceptable performance while walking or climbing hills with lose rocks and soil. This boot would work best for a policeman who stays on clean city sidewalks.
