Water Proofing and Zipper Did Not Last - April 18, 2015

Tactical Research Khyber 8 inch Lightweight Waterproof Side-Zip Duty Boots

I've had two pair of khyber boots for 3 years now. These ones and a standard pair. Easily my my favorite boots of all time. The regular pair are still good to go for a long time. On this pair the waterproofing lasted less than a year and the zipper just blew out on one of them. Its a shame because the boots are otherwise holding up very well. I would highly recommend the the standard pair as they are extremely comfortable, provide great traction and support, and hold up very well. But i would not recommend the side zip and water proof models as these features did not last.

As a K-9 Handler, I've put these boots through a lot. They lasted well over a year and a half. It's like anything, take care of your footwear and order the right size. Theses boots are very lightweight and dont bog me down. Sure if you submerge your entire leg in water, I bet you did get wet in some spots, but I have seriously came close to full submersion and not once did I have wet sock.. Take care of your boots, and they take care of you. Common sense. There are my favorites.

I bought these boots in January. They are comfortable boots, but when I buy a pair of waterproof boots, I expect waterproof boots. They are water resistant at best, no where near waterproof. If you are looking for a waterproof boot, look elsewhere.

During heavy snowstorm on East Coast, tested these boots in the snow and found they were not waterproof. Not impressed.
