Hey everyone, so I passed up buying a rothco pack in favor of buying an actual gi one but I already have some rothco jungle boots. I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on how they would hold up for vagabonding. Has anyone used them? Were they okay? Should I look for something actaully gi instead? Thanks

5.11 Tactical has kept my feet comfortable for the past couple of years. Their boots are marketed towards cops and other high speed/low drag operator types, so they're made to be lightweight and take some abuse. Probably won't last a lifetime, but they'll last a while and in comparison to similar-quality footwear, are pretty inexpensive.

I got a pair of these on sale for about 60 bucks.

If you are getting booots, that is the last thing you should go cheap on. Get danners, whites, red wing. Or actual GI issue combat boots. I've heard many of the Iraq war issue ones suck though....

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
