I am the opposite of most here....I absolutely hate speed hooks. They are not speedy for me...pants constantly block my view as i am tying them. As for unlacing, i just open and pull a big first loop, then grab the next x and pull up making sure i hook the previous loop as a stop...move on to the next x and pull up catching the next...and on down. Done this way, each successive x in the laces is half as long as the one above it....making it easy off....and easy on the next time.I have a couple of questions that I thought might get some good answers here:
1)What is the preference between speed hooks and normal lace holes on boots? I have speed hooks on my black shell "U-tips" and was wondering how common loose speed hooks are. Aesthetically, I like the look of the speed hooks and functionally I don't mind them either.
2) What makes reverse chamois such a great material for boots in inclement weather? Seems like a lot of people love the material on boots. I personally do not think I have ever owned a shoe or piece of garment that was "reverse chamois", so I'm not familiar with it's texture or properties.
