Anyone with side zips: does the zipper let water through in the rain? What about puddles?
I have one pair. There’s a flush piece of leather on he inside as well. It’s really tight but I would guarantee that water will eventually leak through.

Dumb question but I assume chamois is the other side of chamois roughout, if so, is it oil tanned as well?
No question is dumb! Yes. Same leather one smooth side the other rough.

Speaking of MTOs, it made me realize my 3sixteen MTO should be done soon. Hopefully they ship in February. I've got many vacations planned this year, I have accepted the fact I won't be buying any more Vibergs this year. On the other hand, I've got 5 pairs and that's honestly enough. Hard for me to justify more boots.

Too many, really. It turns out the exact number I have is the sensible, justifiable number for pairs of thousand dollar boots. Even one more pair would be excessive. But one fewer pair is just parsimonious for parsimony's sake.

Haha of course!

My response is more of an admission that I have *way* more than one person needs.
Same. I remember that I told myself that one pair of service boots would be enough for me. I was so naive back then.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
