I have bought dozens of what might be considered active duty type boots, the 3.0 side zip coyote is hands down by far "the best" boots I've ever owned. Comfurtable, durable,vented but yet toatee and just plain cool. Will buy pair after pair of these bad boyz.....
I hiked 22 miles in the grand canyon with these things and i have zero complaints. I dipped my feet in a puddle and they stayed dry and i had very minor blisters when they are brand new (which is to be expected on a long hike, everyone had blisters) highly recommended these especially for the price.
these are the best boots ever created
I bought these back in April for my fiancée. She uses them for range days and camping and absolutely loves them! Even I was alittle jealous when they arrived as I have a couple pairs of tan 5.11 boots already. With that said, these are next on my list to buy! Only suggestion to 5.11: Please offer this same sidezip boot in the dark coyote or "battle brown" color!
I have just received my new 511 speed boots today,and was totally suprised buy them!I currently own about 4 or 5 pair of my AWESOME ATACS!!I fell in love with 511 about 2 years ago when I was in LA.doing a big foundation job and went to GRAINGERS to buy some tools,and I have been hooked ever since!
I found out about 7 months of SEVERE abuse welding and pouring concrete,that the boots start to break down(toe comes apart,side stiching comes apart)
TIME FOR THE SUER GLUE AGAIN!
But this new boot looks like the people at 511 heard the reviews and fixed the problems.I can't say THANK YOU enough for bringing this boot to us,you guys ROCK!!
