@setandsetting

I bought them from Wesco's Seconds page, but they're the same build as the Packers that Division Road sells:

In what way are those boots seconds? They look incredible... Going to check the site regularly from now but with the UK taxes & shipping cost, the boots aren't that cheap unfortunately..

@EJS  The back of the heel wasn't lasted perfectly, so there are some very minor bumps in the leather, where it was tucked-in between the insole and midsole.  It's so minor that they'd probably qualify as firsts to other bootmakers.

I just check it a few times a week, usually while I drink my coffee.  :)  It's definitely worth perusing on a regular basis!! ;)

IHV-24 works for the rain...  :D

Got caught in the rain during my lunchtime walk.  The IHV-24 sheds rain pretty damn well.

@Dstauffer You're very welcome!  If you're a 12-12.5 brannock, I'd think you'd take a 12 or 12.5 in these.  Maybe see if @Chris at Wesco can help??  Personally, I know that anything shorter than a 9.5 in my Jobmasters would be too short.

@Dstauffer Do you know your brannock size?  Here's a copy/paste about how I size from a post on Reddit.  Hopefully, this gives you another point of reference.

9.5D / 9E (L/R) on the Brannock device. Left foot measures 10.4" and right foot measures 9.3" with medium weight socks. Both feet are fairly high volume, have a high instep, have a prominent navicular and have narrow heels. In GYW/Stitchdown footwear, I typically size based on my larger left foot. In handsewns, I typically size based on my smaller right foot. I typically prefer to wear medium-weight wool socks, and I prefer a looser fit vs a tight fit.

Carmina Forest: 8.5UK
Dayton Service Boots: 8EEE, very comfortable on both feet. I could probably wear an 8.5EE, too.
Quoddy: 9US
Rancourt & Co 800: (Laceup Shoes & Boots): 9D, runs a little snug in the toebox.
Rancourt & Co 2592: 9D, one of my favorite lasts for handsewn boots. Really great is you prefer some extra room in the toebox.
Red Wing Beckman & Iron Ranger: 8.5, both fit fine with thin or medium weight socks.
Trickers 2298: 8.5UK or 9UK, both fitting 5
Trickers 4497: 8.5UK fitting 5 or 6, or 9UK fitting 5
Viberg 110: 9, length is good, too loose in the heel.
Viberg 2005: I had 8.5EE, which was too short for my left foot.
Viberg 2030: I had 8.5, which was too short for my left foot
Viberg 2040: 9, snug in the heel and waist, roomy in the forefoot and toebox.
Viberg 2045: 9, snug in the heel and waist, roomy in the forefoot and toebox. Feels like it has a slightly lower instep, compared to the 2040.
Wesco Low Heel Motor Patrol: 9E, borderline too short for my left foot, despite fitting everywhere else. This last feels like it has a fairly low toebox.
Wesco High Heel Motor Patrol: 10D, Left foot fits perfectly. Right foot is a 1/4 size too long, and I use a heel pad. This last runs pretty narrow.
Wesco LTT Jobmaster: 9.5D, great fit on both feet. This is probably my most comfortable pair of boots.
Wesco Cowboy Packer: 9.5D, Left foot fits perfectly. Right foot is a 1/2 size too long, and I use a heel pad.
Yuketen Handsewn Boots: 9E, a good fit with thick socks.

@tvenuto Thanks!!!  I think I actually prefer the way roughout ages, compared to smoothout leather - no creasing and indigo transfer is very apparent!   ;D

@Bretro_  Thanks!  I actually had to size up on these, compared to my other Wescos (9.5D).  I guess they run a little short, so I'm in a 10D.  The soles are Vibram 700.

This has been a fantastic vest - I wear it almost every day, and it shows zero wear.  Paired with a UHF, I'm toasty warm down to about 40*F.  Below that I put on the IHV-22 (N-1 alpaca vest).
