I use a water proof, metal free calf boot most of the time when I walk on the beach. I have bought them from various places like Walmart, sporting goods stores and online. They are both styles of fishing boots and muck boots for agriculture and the like. All of them crack after just a few months (many miles) and they leak. In the past I have tried glue, tapes and other things to get more life out of them. I've tried different brands.
My last purchase was a pair of Tingley's and they are probably the best so far but they have now cracked down near my big toe. They have lasted since February. They have gone up 50% in price since then.
Does anyone know a glue or fix for this? I wouldn't mind even slopping something over the outside but it has to be flexible.
When the water is warm I could use a Clog or slipper but they don't provide the support and protection when I refill my holes.
Just got a pair of gloves to replace my work gloves I had snagged from a local hardware store and got these:
Made really well and have a padded palm. Less money than they junk work gloves I had before.
I got a call to find an wedding ring for a guy when it was 8000 degrees. I get there and after 1 hr I am dead. He asks me if I would like to use his cooling vest. I said no due to me not knowing what it was. He starts explaining it to me so I gave it a try... ITS AWESOME!!! I detected in 110 heat index and felt kinda chilly. It lasted around 85 min before he changed out the packs. Anyone ever used a cooling vest?
As usual, some of us got off topic a few days ago on this thread:
We got into a discussion about insect repellants, what works in some areas and for some insects, etc. I have a question and decided to start a new thread, on this specific topic, which will also probably get hijacked.
My specific question to 2Valen is: what concentration of Permethrin are you using? I have some spray stuff but it's only 0.5% Permethrin. I doubt that's what you are dilluting. Also, you say "add the correct amount...". Could you be more specific.
I get eaten alive by chiggers and although spray Deet works OK, they still seem to find a way around that to a limited extent.
