Magnum Elite 3 Combat Boots, Surplus

Price 59.99 USD excluding sales tax

La vache, what a find! Legendary “I am the Law boots” used by law enforcement and security folks around the world. These are French though. They don’t have any exotic gimmicks that fall apart easily. They are simply high-quality waterproof tactical boots made for professional use but that haven’t really seen much use of any kind. You can see that France is a democratic state because the toe caps don’t have any signs of kicking. In such a nice condition that the price starts to look silly cheap.

Features

Magnum is a familiar name for many people in military, law enforcement, first responder, and security businesses. They have made tactical footwear ever since the early 1980s and their boots are used in over 100 countries. Elite Force Series is the first ever globally certified tactical footwear collection and some consider it the most progressive line of tactical footwear in the industry.

In short, these are classic, very well made black high-cut combat boots. Sturdy leather, good ankle support, and comfortable padding to keep the upper edge from chafing plus the Vibram outsole that offers very nice traction. Inside you’ll probably find the Magnum’s M.P.A.C.T Plus insoles but if not, it isn’t a huge loss because you should probably get a new pair anyway.

These boots have the codes FO, HI, CI, HRO, WR, and SRA. Because these won’t probably be clear to everyone, we included the explanations below. Even though these are in good shape, they are still quite old, so we can’t guarantee that they still are according to these specs. But you’ll at least know what they had when they were brand new. Also note that the standard has been later updated, so some of these codes are no longer in use in this format.

  • FO: Resistant to fuel and oil
  • HI: The upper has been tested for heat insulation resistance against a minimum of 150°C.
  • CI: The upper has been tested for cold insulation. Temperatures aren’t given but the standard level is -17°C.
  • HRO: The outsole has been tested for heat resistance against +300°C on contact.
  • WR: The boots have been tested to be fully waterproof using a flex test.
  • SRA: Slip Resistance. The outsoles have been tested on a ceramic tile wetted with dilute soap solution.

Size info

The weight is c. 770 g (1.7 lbs) per boot (EUR 42 / US 9). The last is normal. In the chart below, you’ll find the insole length in addition to various sizing systems. It is measured from tip to heel, without pressing the insole flat. Magnum charts differ a bit from many other manufacturers, so the insole length is the most reliable measurement. Note that the length of the insole isn't of course the same as the recommended size. You want a bit extra toe space for your foot. The length doesn't increase evenly all the time.

Condition

Nicely used French law enforcement/security surplus. Some have hardly seen any use. There can be some dust and such on the upper but you can polish them quite easily. Note that the pair you get might not be an original pair. So one boot can have a bit more signs of use than the other one, They will be a real pair nevertheless: they are of the same size and one is left, the other right.

Ensivaikutelma postista saapuessa hyvä. 43 tuntuu sopivan hienosti vähän leveämpään jalkaan yhden urheilusukan kanssa. Yleensä käytän kokoa 43 (tai 44 villasukkien kanssa.)

Sain kuitenkin pikkuisen harmillisesti selvästi eri paria olevat kengät, mikä tietysti oli tuotekuvauksessa kerrottu. Tässä tapauksessa toinen on ihan uuden veroinen, sisäänajamaton ja jäykkä, ja sisälsi pohjallisen joka oli myös uuden veroinen. Kengällä on kuitenkin ehditty ainakin kerran astua kuralätäkköön, joten ihan uusi se ei ole. Liekö käyttäjä sitten säikähtänyt sitä kuraa ja vienyt takaisin hyllyyn.

Vasen kenkä taas on selvästi käytetty, vähän kuluneempi, yhä oikein hyvässä kunnossa, mutta ei sisältänyt pohjallista ja on hyvin sisäänajettu, tuntuvasti notkeampi ja ei enää natise kävellessä, toisin kuin oikea puoli.

Pohjien kulumassa en huomaa mitään eroa, molemmat ok. Jos satut vielä saamaan kaksi hyväkuntoista pohjallista, niin nekin vaikuttavat laadukkaalta uutena.

Otin puoli tähteä pois tästä eriparisuudesta, kun sisäänajosta tulee varmaan vähän hassun tuntuista yhdellä jäykällä kengällä. Näistä saa varmasti kuitenkin sopivilla aineilla saman näköiset ja liikunnalla saman tuntuiset, joten tähän hintaan en kyllä valita mistään.

Kengät on oikein jämäkän tuntuset. Ei todellakaan mitkään rimpulat. Kyllä näillä kehtaa haalarihommia tehdä.

Made in Cambodia for Hi-Tech Sports in the year 2012.
The original insoles were peeling, so I replaced them with Tacco Sports and now there is more room within the boot.
Do not attempt to oil or grease the leather, because of the Fuel/Oil Resistance, nothing will absorb.
The boots are in otherwise good condition, but were worn by a heel striker as judging by the extreme wear on the heels of the soles.

Kenkäni ainakin vaikuttivat olevan samaa paria, molempien nauhat olivat kiristettynä samoihin mittoihin.
Kunto oli pääosin hyvä, ainoana poikkeuksena on metallisilmukoiden sisäosat jotka ovat ruosteessa

Aluksi teki rakkoja, mutta meni myös ihan huonojen sukkien piikkiin. Nyt kun kävelty +120km, niin alkaa olemaan todella mukavat jalassa ja todella hyvä pohja. Vaikka olisi märkää kalliota/puunjuurta tms, niin ei tartte pelätä, että jalka lähtisi alta. Myös nilkkatuki on todella hyvä. Vaikka astuisi kiven syrjään, niin ei taitu nilkka. tldr, hintasekseen todella loistavat kengät.

Hinta-laatu suhteeltaan erittäin hyvät. Toimivat perusmaiharit. Tukevat. Hyvä kuntoiset, ei juuri lainkaan käytön jälkiä. Itse tarvitsin numeroa isommat. Lesti oli hyvän leveä.

Kengät ovat liian lämpimät käytettäväksi pikkupakkasilla (saati lämpimämmillä keleillä), mutta kovemmilla pakkasilla pohjien materiaali muuttuu petollisen liukkaaksi vaikkei keli olisi erityisen liukas.

Muuten ovat hyvän tuntuiset jalassa.
