Lightning Class 2 boot for trial

Recommended Posts

essentialARB have a pair of the new Lightning Class 2 boot from Arbortec Forestwear to trial and review.

 

The review will appear in the April 2010 issue of essentialARB. If you are interested in trialling the boots for us please pm me your contact details (full name, email and phone), with brief details of the type of work you currently undertake - and of course, your foot size!

 

It is essential that the trial puts the boots fully to the test in all conditions and also that you are prepared to submit a minimum 500 word review for publication.

 

I would add that companies do not offer us goods for trial lightly - we do have to assure them that the product will be tested properly and reported on timeously and in full.

Having been let down previously, I should warn that anyone being chosen to undertake the trial, who then fails to submit a written review, will be charged the full retail price for the goods.

Well, I was more than willing to do a review on the Arborcom, but you turned me down. :sneaky2: Not sure I could bang-out 500 words minimum on a pair of boots. A pair of boots is a pair of boots (IMO). They seem to last about 12 months, chuck ‘em away and buy a new pair. If the soles don’t split then the stitching surely will. Not knocking any quality boot you understand, its just that climbing Arbs put boots through hell!

Yea sure......but ideally you need to get the next copy of essentialARB, where you can read all about them !! (had to get a plug in - sorry!)

 

The upper is crafted from full grain tough cow leather, 2.8 to 3.0mm thick and multiple stitched with Kevlar® thread. The layers of polyester chainsaw blocking material extend all around the boot including the back of the leg.

 

The boot has a tough anti-scuff cap, spacious 200J steel, easy glide speed lacing system and generously padded collar and tongue. Flex points at the front and back of the boot mean that it is fine for driving in and needs virtually no breaking in.

Lined with 100% waterproof breathable lining, the Lightning also has a layer of Thinsulate® insulation to maintain comfortable working temperatures for the duration of the day.

that one is still to come...slight problem with the headset that they wanted to sort before we got them...but it's still on-going.

 

I just had too many to choose from John - sorry, your moment will come I'm sure:lol:

i love boots, and i would struggle to only write 500 words, and if you want them tested, i am your man. Its like a marsh up here all the time and freezing. I think they would struggle to be as good as the kilma airs, which are totally awesome, but hey, i am have been wrong many many times before:biggrin::thumbup1:
