    For what it's worth, I emailed recently about that very question and the recommendation was Waxed Flesh. I asked about the Coyote and he said it would probably be hard to keep clean in the snow/salt.

    Definitely good to know. So I'll be going waxed flesh and commando, cap toe, 7 eyelets, and maybe a pull tab. Not sure about the pull tab though...any thoughts. Thinking of maybe a black waxed flesh gussets tongue?

    I can't decide on a gusseted tongue. Do the standard tongues tend to shift to the side in these boots? What's the comfort level of the gusseted tongue?Any thoughts?

    Love the gussets tongue. No sliding, comfy, much better for wet conditions.



    Not sure if this is up to date still

    Sounds almost exactly like what I plan on ordering once the Brown WF hits the site. Apparently that's coming soon. As far as pull tabs, I'm still on the fence. I'm curious what others think about them as well.

    No problemo!



    Sounds like we have impeccable taste!



    Ok...pull tab is probably the way to go then with a narrow opening. Thanks for that info that I didn't know about.

    What leather did you use for the gusseted tongue?

    My Truman was not gusetted...my mistake when ordering but my Vibergs all are gusseted and love it....the tongue on my Truman was the Kudu...really great.

    i took the pull tab off one pair and ordered the second without because i wear tapered (7.5") cuffed jeans and they were constantly hanging up on the tabs

    shot an email on the contact page, hopefully I hear back about my sizing question. Now just debating on leather and options for mine.
