I'm looking for a pair of light weight and comfortable boots with hiking soles and no metal eyelets or hooks.  The key words are Light Weight and Comfortable!

Anyone know of any?

Thanks!

Here’s a couple of pairs The Taskmaster and I used in WA...  They work a treat  We call them  4wd thongs   Really easy to get them off when you smashy your big toe  

You're really showing your age, Paul.  My wife and I got lectured by our niece maybe 10 years ago using that old lingo, and that was after she put her eyes back in the socket.  Those are 'flips' among

I use 8" Reebok Rapid Response boots, 100% no metal, got mine with composite toe. The side zipper model, which I own, has a metal zipper tab, which I remove. The boots last on average 2-3 years, but a

Give Keen a try. Work great for me.

I used to wear these desert tan converse combat boots.  They are said to be waterproof outers but my pair always let water in, but I didn't care because your feet dry super fast in them, like within an hour. Ever your socks. I will be buying another pair in the spring because they were super comfy and I think they would probably work well with my bad Achilles tendon. Here are some other Converse models as well.

 I definitely would not wear these in areas where you have to wear snake guards as they will NOT give your feet any protection against a snake bite.

Did you by them here in WA? If so what brand are they if you don’t mind.

I wear thongs a lot but the Double-Gees here go right through them and nail them to your feet. They look like they’d do the job

I was given the first pair basically brand new by a bloke who decided they were too uncomfortable.

Reasonably comfortable for me but geez do they make my feet sweat! So much so that my feet end up the same colour as what ever sock I was wearing that day due to the dye.

also the zip ends do signal on my 7000 but not a problem if you know they are there.

You know, now that you mention the sweating thing, I do remember them doing that. At the time I was in the water alot and I just ignore that fact. I'll still get another pair. For me they were super comfortable and had good traction. I wear boots with metal eyelets for years now with pulse and vlf detectors, and as long as you keep your feet away from detector, it's been no issue for me.

I take my pinpointer to the shoe store when I’m looking for a pair of boots to use metal detecting and always come home with Keene boots.

      I was looking at wet suit’s and it said 7mm but I wanted to know what’s that in inches.
      Well here’s the formula to find out .
      7mm
      7. divided by 25.4 = inches
       Maybe some of you knew this but I didn’t.

      How much do scuba drysuit cost in the USA? What is the best quality / price ratio?

      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.

      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.
