    Well I know the one key thing that is discussed in the Academy about boots are that Rubber boots can be cleaned of hazardous materials, like blood, gas, oil, etc. Leather soaks up these materials and can't be cleaned. So once a leather boot is contaminated, its done and can't really be used again (not supposed to). And that can get expensive if you run a lot of car accident calls.

    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Default For those who have received their sample boots

    For those that have just received their sample boots...

    If the size is not exactly right, let us know and we will replace the sample pair with the correct size. based on the pair you receive, this should enable you to give us a good indication of the exact size you need.

    We will handle the courrier costs.

    Thank you.

    NO, its all crap.....Ben2s are cheaper in price....end of story. "Selling point" 20k of pressure to destroy a Ben2....sounds great huh? Real safe you say....well my head and neck can only take a couple of hundred pounds before they explode....so whats the point?
