Product Review: Magnum Elite Force 8.0 WPI Boots

Are they waterproof?

Submerged in four inches of standing water.

We’re about to find out.

They’re certainly buoyant, I’ll give ’em that. It took a box of 12-gauge shells and half a brick in each boot to sink ’em.

Edit 2030 hours: Well, after 2 1/2 hours in four inches of water, the right boot is completely dry, and the left boot is, well… full of water.

You may recall, that is the boot that was irritating the hell out of my left ankle.

Methinks I’ve got a defective boot here.
