Magnum quality has dropped while every other manufacturer has improved. Finish on toes peel. Try the new Danner Tac boots they are reasonable and comfortable. I have worn Magnums, (still have them but wont wear them), the last 2 pairs of 5.11's I got I returned for less than waterproof issues. I highly recommend the Danners. I wear them at least 12 hours a day, and they keep on going.
