The boots are Converse Boots. They are getting better with age, as any foam compresses. I think boots are moving away from being functional , to have a more "technical" appearance, and Convers are cerainly guilty of that. Usually, even a desert boot that gets wet, should have recovered after a few hours of not being worn, and feel good when you put them back on. These boots, seem to have a long period of recovery, possibly because the generous amounts of foam.
I had several trousers ready to wear, ranging from Hagloffs, to 5.11 and Drop-Zone. I chose a generous pair of green poly-cotton combats. Ideal for wearing in dry conditions, of which we had. They are a short cut, which makes them easier to close at the bottom, around the boot. Also great for exertion.
The top is Blackhawk, and is designed for exertion, when un-covered, and insulation when covered.
The Belt kit, consists of two Maxpedition Rolly Polllies, One horizontal Mounted Tops Scout knife, Surefire torch, with bluefilter for blood detection, and IR Filter to boost my NVGs. Leatherman Titanium Multitool, Inova green Torch. Whistle and Extrema Ratio Kukri.
The Back pack is integrated with the belt. Its a Maxpedition Condor in Foliage green, with a Maxpedition Comms pouch on the left and Maxped Cocoon on the right. It contains gloves, sweets and half a face cloth for cleaning kit or dipping into water for cooling the neck. Also mounted on the back-pack ( chest strap)for continuous view is a Garmin 450.
The bins are Canon, they are my faithful friends and have taken a bashing, all over the world, and work as good today as they did ten years ago.
