This is a place to share fair and systematic reviews of gear. Share the good, bad and ugly as well as including how you tested it and reviewed the gear. This is not the place to carry on about a bit of gear that failed, sometimes good gear has a lemon - this is more about systematic reviews. Although this can be a way to help gear manufactures with feedback, this is not the place to hassle them or ask for money back.

Start each thread with
[tag]Brand, product, RRP in AUD. The tags have two parts the type of gear and type of testing/review. eg
[Sleeping bag | Unboxing] Kmart Summit Hooded $29
[Stove | Field test]Jetboil, flash $150

Suggested review types. Unboxing, field test, 1 year on, stress test, teardown.
If someone else has already reviewed the same product in a similar method then please use the initial thread to include your review. Please note if the gear was provide to you for free, loan, discount or if you paid full RRP.

$80 bucks delivered to these shores, made by Hiax

They look pretty good, are they lined with leather or synthetic or just sueded inside? How stiff is the sole?

Those particular ones are just leather lined, the Alpine boots are full Gortex lined, for the money you couldn't really go past them.

They have excellent ankle support, however like all military boots are a tad on the long side, but a great budget boot for the price.

And all the way from Europe! Did they get them for free as there can't be much profit in these?

What is Grade 1?
Grade 1 or used condition means the goods have been previously worn but are still in very good condition. Boots will have plenty of tred on the sole and excellent upper leather. They may have a few scuffs to the toe area which can normally be hidden by shoe polish. Some times this is beneficial to the wearer as the boots have already been broken in which means the likely hood of getting blisters and rubbing is minimal.
