  • 7 months and still going strong!!

    By jonathan 11/10/2010

    Well it is now roughly 7 months since aquiring my Magnum Spiders and although showing a few signs of wear they are still doing what they were designed to do.

    Due to nature of my job as a search and rescue winchman I am often kneeling inside the helicopter and thus scraping the toes on my boots, this is the main sign of wear that I can see and is probably the only real issue I can think of in 7 months of trialing. Instead of the the soft rubber toecap I could probably do with something a little more durable.

    I was reminded only yesterday why I have been so happy with the magnums when i picked them up in one hand and picked my Maritime counter terrorism boots up in the other! I always thought the latter were lightweight but I honestly reckon the magnums must be half their weight when compared side by side.
    The boots have been a true friend this summer both in the mountainous lake district of the UK and also during operations in coastal areas. I have winched in the sea, off all kinds of ships and boats and I can honestly say I have never been dissapointed. They are especially good for my role in the water when a lightweight boot is essential and they will continue to be my 1st choice boot for wet winching.

    They can be quite tricky to clean I have found after numerous muddy jobs, however a quick spin through the washing machine and they have scrubbed up like new!

    Well, not much more to say for now! I hope to get many more miles out of these boots and continue to put them through their paces as extremely as my job will allow.

    I will continue to keep you all updated and hopefully Magnum may even allow me to trial some different boots in the winter (hint hint) Goretex would be nice :)
    I'll keep you posted.
    Stay safe.

    Regards JC
