    Storm Defender®

    Storm Defender®, waterproof breathable technology, stops rain, but let’s sweat escape through a breathable membrane—so you can work through a storm.

    Staying dry, focused, and safer is easier with rainwear featuring Storm Defender® waterproof breathable technology. It's made to keep you completely protected from rain and amazingly comfortable inside. Work doesn't stop when it rains; it just gets harder.

Good so far!
They look just like what was shown on line. So far so good. Would like to continue my review after a few weeks. Once they are broken in I should be able to give a better review.

Fantastic Boot
I've had these boots for a year now and couldn't be happier with the money I spent. Most comfortable work boot I've ever worn. I was skeptical that the leather design would actually be/stay waterproof but they definitely have. I've put them through the wringer, soaked them with oil and hydrolic fluid, gas and diesel, foot deep mud, and they're still good as new. They only issue I've had was the lases frayed and broke after a couple months, but I ordered some decent ones online that work great. Overall, the perfect boot.

It is s comfortable fit true to the size you order. If you are not used to high boots it will take a few extra steps or so to get familiar with. Very light weight with the composite foam steel toe

How are they if you are flat footed?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2019

How well do these boots support the ankle? I am on my feet all day.
Mark A on Mar 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is no padding in the ankle so if you tighten the laces just kind of snug for good support you're going to be in pain from the internal seems rubbing your bones. Its akin to a sock full of nickels strapped to the front of your ankles. Its a real deal breaking flaw considering the rest is ok.
What is the difference between composite toe, steel toe, and safety toe? And will composite toe keep my toes warm in the winter? Because safety toe and steel toe get cold.
