I was in the area of Sawtooth, I hadn't seen a Rattler in this area ever, I do own 2 sets of Snake Chaps but never wear them. One early morning I was detecting, stepped over a bush and heard a hiss, I

  I dont have any pics, but I do wear them. In the winter I sometimes go without them, but they are also good for cactus and other low pointy things that can hurt you.

Thanks Ken, Do they work and what are they made of, Although I am from OZ originally I never worried about using such things although I have had a few close shaves and I saved a mate once who was about to get Tagged by the Biggest King Brown I have ever seen,

For A while I was getting paranoid because they always seem to make a B-Line for me, and it has been the same with other Bities that seem to want to share my space, Only thing is Now I can't afford to get Bitten due to health reasons,

I wear snake gaiters...bought at bass pro couple years back, after almost walking on 3 rattlers in about 20 minutes. Cant tell ya if they work or not, havent tested them yet,lol. But they make me feel little better when hiking in rattlesnake infested areas.

3 in 20 minutes that's tempting Fate just A Bit, No wonder you wear them,

 

 

Yes they do work great. Not really sure whats in them. I almost think its a Kevlar panel, they are lite and do not hinder me at all while walking.

I Think I might try and find some if they are that good, I need something because I cant afford to take the Risks,

Thanks again,, John

Get them from Az Outback. After you wear them for a few hours and get back to your vehicle you will forget you have them on. Oh, they are guarenteed against any North American snake bite.

Thanks GBRon, I will see if I can get some sent to me,

John

      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.

      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!

      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?
