Army surplus :laugh: wouldn't use them for firewood......

 

What boots...... Well I've got altberg Warriors and lows mountain gtx.......

 

Used the lowas in

Afghan 2009 and both in the winter tour-sep 2010- april2011.

 

Honest opinion:

 

Altberg-

 

I went to the altberg factory in Richmond to get them fitted. I have

No complaints about them apart from I (and others) feel they get a bit cold on the toes. Pretty

Durable and look the part.

 

Lowa-

 

The toughest boots I've used. Had them since 2008 and they're

Still doing the job. Very tough soles, good ankle support and comfy

As feck......bit heavier than the altberg.

 

Most the lads I work with have a pair of

Both. Altbergs are a top boot and

We use them for day to day use and when we need to look smart. Lowas are the workhorses for us, we change to them when were gonna put the boots through some stick. Very, very tough boots and pretty

Warm. Afghan in winter at night is a pretty harsh place and lowas have served me well.

 

Both are a good choice. Similar price and do similar things. I'd be happy with either

But for dog work/digging the lowa comes out on top....... For general mooching and walking

It's altberg :thumbs:

 

warriors are a decent boot, if you ever need to buy a new pair try them highmoor yins :thumbs:

i got some through the mail and they just don't feel right.

 

they're probably just trying to get rid of some of the old coffin dodgers that seem to aimlessly stand around there trying to decide what colour socks they want.
