Fanny Pack Attack  8)

Wait, it’s socially acceptable for men to wear fanny packs again?

Pretty sure @Clint_D wears Wesco boots on an oil rig, and I think @seawolf wears them for military and commercial kitchen use.  They could probably give some additional insight into durability under hard use.

There are few things harder on your feet and your boots than living on a ship, and my Wesco Jobmasters are one of my greatest assets. I’m not really supposed to be wearing them due to some poorly written uniform regulations, but they’re loosely written enough that I can argue my case whenever challenged. Sometimes I have to wear the standard Navy issued boots, and they’re uncomfortable from the minute I put them on my feet. My Wescos actually bring me joy when my feet first snap into them and I lace them up. I’ve beat the steel toes up pretty badly, but that’s why they’re there. The sole held up reasonable well, but that’s Vibram, and not really Wesco. One thing I did notice, and something that I’ll change when I have them rebuilt, is that the back stay needs to be stitched with Kevlar next time around. Going up and down steep ladders forces the back of the legs to rub constantly against rungs and caused some excessive wear to the stitching in the back stays. Other than that, I’m in love, and there is nothing like a custom pair of Wesco boots for people that have to wear boots for extended periods of time.

Conversely, I have some Chaco river shoes that I absolutely loved as approach shoes until I went sockless in them this past weekend. The slightest contact with my right little toe over several miles and lots of elevation became a nasty blister. Footwear fit is a game of millimeters, so a custom fit is more valuable there than anywhere.

Any reason why the IH-526SV doesn't come with a leather patch?

I never noticed that until I was hot soaking mine last night. Killed my plans of transplanting the patch to the outside of the vest.

I always figured the Vests were designed to wear over leathers, so the lack of a bulky leather tag was so it wouldn’t add any bulk around a jacket collar or scratch up the leather after the patch dried a bit.

Obviously I completely made that narrative up haha

Makes enough sense for me...

It will also be a plus when I grow muscles and decide too wear it in lieu of a shirt, lol
