    Unsuccessful search for lightweight simple high leather boots, close to trail shoes flexibility

    There is a small manufacturer in Sweden called Jörnkängan. They are actually more of a myth, but I thick it is possible to buy them. Better quality and lighter than Lundhags, Made in Sweden. But of course, even more expensive. https://www.allmogejakt.se/mobile/product.html/jornkanga-m96...

    Unsuccessful search for lightweight simple high leather boots, close to trail shoes flexibility

    They are hand made welted shoes with replaceable soles. For this type of shoes/boots, not pricey at all. Rather cheap to be honest. I'm going to buy a pair next time I'm buying shoes. Skickat från min SM-G960F via Tapatalk

    The String Vest revisited… Fishnet Mesh Underwear

    I always wear my synthetic brynje when out doing stuff. Often under my aclima warmwool hoodie or under a stiched Lama wool sweater that I got from Indiegogo. I think it's superb. Warm when I need warmth and pretty cool when I need cooling. And although it's synthetic it has not developed the...

    Trousers (warmish)

    Maybe out of your budget but Klättermusen Gere is great for a bit colder weather. With a pair of long johns under I have been skiing in mine in -10 C.

    Winter footwear?

    But beware of the sizing on Lemigo. In EU size 43, ordered Lemigo 45. Still to small.

    One layer leather boots (no membrane)

    Thanks, will look into altberg. But i actually prefer the Red Wing look. More old school built up boot without the thick padding that the Altbergs had around the ankles/calves. But red wing are too expensive. Are there any British high quality country boots that flies under the radar and...

    One layer leather boots (no membrane)

    Hi, I'm planning to buy a pair of one layer leather boots for normal use, from walking the dog to hiking. I don't want a membrane because the never dry when they get wet and I tend to get wet in them anyway, even if it's dry outside. Anyone have any suggestions? I have seen some military boots...

    Recommendation for trainers

    I would look at Altra. They have some trail running shoes that are great. With foot shaped toe box and zero drop on all models from small to maximum cushioning. https://www.altrarunning.com/running-shoes/men#Trail
