    Thumbs up I love mine!

    i have a pair of Warrington Pro 2003 (I think) I don't think i will ever go back to rubber boots, I am currently in a FF1 training class and they are holding up well! (more than can be said for me!!)

    The only problem I ever had with my Rangers was that the fabric on the top of the toes would wear out and a hole appeared exposing the leather underneath. Other than that, I love them. They have much better feel than rubber boots and are lighter IMHO.

    have both rubber and leather boots. the leathers are so much more comfortable then the rubber, work for a dept that fights lots of fires, so we use them a lot and they are extremly comfortable, i'll never go back to rubber

    We have leather Pro Warringtons and I was given a pair to try out over 4 years ago. They are called Servous, or some sort of slightly odd spelling. They were sold by the local Morning Pride dealer. While both are far better that the rubber boots, WAAAYYYY better. The Servous are more flexable and comfortable, and cheaper as well. I like them well enough that if the dept. will not buy me another pair when needed, I will buy them on my own.

    I am in a paid dept, running about 6 to 10 calls per shift.
    The opinions are mine alone, and do not represent the department I am with, or any firefighters I work with.
