Re: Jump boots!any ideas on suppliers?

...can't say anything about the wearing qualities right now since they are too small for me! The upper leather is of a very strong quality, the sole construction looks flimsy and only glued on...I will get a bigger pair and then try them...

cheers

Re: copies of labels!

Hi there

Be careful with the labels from the wicking page...they have a lot of spelling mistakes in them and some seem to be fantasy products! The general effort those guys have put into those has to be highly appreciated though...

Re: Jump boots!any ideas on suppliers?

...Sturm Side Lace boots will be available from week 22 on! Unfortunately so far no one has published pictures...Price wise they are in the same region as the 2nd pattern boots! Looking forward to seeing them since the currently available ones can only be worn by people wit the elephant foot syndrom...

Re: Opinions wanted on jump smocks...

Hi Tom I know what you mean but I think the quality of the zippers are the key here. I have a LB M40 with metal zippers, the teeth are not sharp at all and the pullers almost glide through them. Very high quality zippers those are, the also have a very solid feel to them. To bad LB does not have a c...

Re: Opinions wanted on jump smocks...

Hi Somehow I have difficulties associating those zippers with WWII! I know they are authentic, most of the sumpf smocks got them but somehow in my brain I have this picture of 60ties and 70ties children's winter parkas in all kind of funny colors with hoods...and they all had those RiRi plastic zipp...

Re: Opinions wanted on jump smocks...

Hi If I went for a Panther smock, let's call them that since they are the producers, I would ask for metal zippers anyway. I personally am not too much of a fan of the plastic ones... cheers Uwe PS: Yes, a Tom Gulliver smock would be wonderful...but getting one is more difficult than buying an origi...

Re: Opinions wanted on jump smocks...

Hi Thanks you all for your opinions...I personally do not like the ZM/Panther one because of the green plastic zippers! I have though not handled one myself yet.
