  1. Boots boots boots

    Evening ladies and gents, Just curious, how are boots issued in Kent to PC's? Are there standard issue now (applied a few years ago and at the fitting they told me to keep my altbergs from my old Special constab - which have since gone awol ) If not is there some kind of boot allowance given or is it just use your first pay? Cheers, A
  2. Hi All, I know there is already a topic of kit and equipment in the general discussion however I would like to know specific details in relation to Devon and Cornwall so would appreciate if this could be kept in this header for all new starters, like myself, know when to receive kit and if there is anything we need to add to our Christmas lists as it's not included. Please could someone who has recently attested i.e in the last 6 months or so advise what kit is given to you, when it is given to you, how much is given to you and anything you have required to get to ensure you have everything you personally require. i.e. a torch, boots etc Please use the following format for each time kit was issued so I can paint a rough timeline of events and don't have to read an essay for the required response! If it was on a training weekend, please state which training weekend. EXAMPLE: Period in training: Induction Items issued (Quantity and item): 2x Wicking t-shirts 1 pair of boots 1x High vis..... etc. Period in training: Attesting Items issued (Quantity and item): 1x Warrant Card 1x Leather warrant card holder 1x Custodian helmet 2x Cargo Trousers...... etc It would be appreciated if you could stick to the format above and be as accurate as possible. Thanks in advance!
  3. Evening All, So I'm about to start my training as a Special and understand that boots/shoes are not issued as part of the kit. I'm looking to get a pair of boots and am wondering if anyone out there has had any experience with either of the following: (Please note, I'm not looking to spend the earth on a pair just yet - I'm happy to down the line, but not yet) - Amblers 8" Tactical with Side Zip & Steel Toe Caps or - Responder RF/1 Tactical Patrol Boot with Side Zip If anyone else has any suggestions please feel free to let me know, however I'm not really looking to spend more than about £50 inc P&P and I quite like the idea of the side zip. ***** Does anybody know 100% whether or not Hants. Constab allow steel toecaps? I know some forces don't and I don't want to get a pair if I'm not allowed to wear them. ***** Thanks in advance

  5. I am looking to purchase my first set of boots as a Special (in training). This boot is attractive as it ticks many of the boxes on my want list (Vibram sole, very light, no side-zip, good support), whilst still being available for under £80. However, it also has a rubber toecap to protect the leather there, which brings me to my question: - Has anyone come across any issues with the rubber toecap on this boot not being seen to be appropriate for wearing whilst in uniform? :new_thanks:
  6. Boot Dilemma

    Hello all, I have a pair of Magnums however I have noticed they are starting to get holes in the soles after 6 months of having them! Resulting in water coming through, I do wear them all the time at work though. I then brought a pair of the side zip ones at the same time but one boot's zip has broken too! Now thinking about getting a pair of Lowa's? http://www.patrolstore.com/Lowa-Boots-Combat-GTX-p-575.html Even if it means paying out a bit more. I was looking at the 5.11 XPRT Boots but they have shot up by £40 and I have heard they aren't very water proof! Can anyone give their opinions on these? Cheers.
  7. Boots... again

    So I'm on the lookout for some boots, a few years ago I used to have some British Army ones, which served OK for what they were. Budget is around £80 max, I won't be using them every day (weekends mainly). Ideally I'd like to try pairs on before buying (I find some boots a bit too narrow) - I'm based in Dorset. I tried on some Magnum Cobra VI's last week (size 9 - I'm usually a 10), which felt reasonable, but I've heard some negative comments about the quality of Magnum now. I'll try and pop in Sports Direct again to have another look. I did come across these Web-Tex ones, has anybody used them? Haven't been able to find much info on the internet about them, or any reviews? My main concern with any boots within the price range is the soles wearing quickly. All suggestions are welcome!

  9. So I've started looking into what boots to buy and stumbled across these on patrolstore. http://www.patrolstore.com/Dr-Martens-Marshall-Police-Boot.html?home_expose4_DM_Marshall They're pretty affordable compared to others on the website but what are your opinions on them? Some of you more experienced folk will have more of an idea what to look for than me. I did a quick search on here and only found one post which mentions them and there's only one review on the website. I'm also looking at getting these (http://www.patrolstore.com/Magnum-Active-Duty-Shoe-p-13815.html). I need some new dress shoes anyway as mine are a bit battered so I figured I may as well get some that will be usable for attestation and other tunic-order duties. Are they any good?
  10. Hi Guys, I've just bought a pair of mitre lightblue legion boots, loads of people have raved about them so I thought I'd get a pair. I'm having trouble breaking them in, so far I've lasted half a shift on two occasions before going back to my old boots. Any tips in how to break them in ? Cheers x
  11. Altberg vs Lowa

    Right then, I don't know if this has been asked before but I want to know which one to go for as my next boot. I currently have a pair of Altberg Warrior Microlite's, which have lasted me for several years but the sole has worn disappointingly quickly. The re-soling is £45 which seems a lot. I was wondering if anyone has owned both and which they prefer. I also found the altberg to be a bit snug in terms of width and want to know if the Lowa in the same size is a more easy fit. Finally I don't want a goretex boot because me feet get hot, so which Lowa boot if any is recommend. Thanks in advance.
  12. Hey all. Thought I would try and get a topic going to find out who might be on my course for training. I have got my start date as the 28th January at Mount Pleasant Campus in Swansea. Anyone else on the same course travelling from Newport/Cardiff way? Also for anyone who may have already done their training at mount pleasant campus where is the best place to park? I had a look around there in the week but I couldn't see much nearby except the train station? Boots wise I was looking at these; http://www.patrolsto...om/command.html Some people have left really good reviews where others have not so have any serving PCSOs/Officers had experience of them? Looking forward to some replys soon! And regarding the boots any help would be appreciated
  13. Hey Guys, This has probably been covered somewhere else on the forums no doubt but still it never hurts to ask the question again and then get some new responses..... Boot Polishing & Bulling up... I can polish my boots enough to get a bit of a shine on them and make them look very presentable, but what are the best techniques to bulling them up and have an amazing parade style shine to them?? Feel free every body to help out, ill provide the polish if you fancy showing me how its done... L O L Cheers guys Stitchy
  14. So, I have been slightly done over by www.patrolstore.com... :new_thmbdn2: I ordered a pair of boots on the 16th Oct with priority delivery (because you never know) and it got to today (22nd) and figured I should probably give them a call to see where they are at. I was then told that somebody else had ordered the last pair of the same boots, in the same size, four seconds before me...four seconds! :new_eyebrow: No e-mail or phone call to tell me this which is kind of annoying, on the plus side they have given me a full refund and apologised etc etc. So, seeming as I have to look again for some boots anyway, I was just wondering if anyone can recommend any particular pairs/websites/shops, preferably waterproof, or any boots to steer away from. Also would anybody recommend steel toe and do HC set a standard that the boots must meet? Thanks in advance.
  15. Brand of boots

    What are the main brand of boots again? I'm aware of magnum but there are a few others which were highly recommended but i can't seem to find the thread anymore. Thanks everyone for your help P.s. I got my format letter of appointment today!
  16. Hello boys and girls, Now I've been trawling the forums for an answer but there seems to be no up to date information on uniform but I apologise if there is one. However, one question I was wondering is whether they give the wicker shirts out now? As I believed they gave them out at attestation. So does this mean we attend our foundation training in the old out dated white shirts and black ties?
  17. I currently have the Magnum Stealth Force 8.0 WPI boots, but sadly the stitching on the inside has become ripped. I'm interested in some waterproof Altbergs - any recommendations? EDIT: Attached links as to where they can be bought from would be great.
  18. Lightweight Boot Recommendation

    Hello Chaps, My boots are on their way out now and in need of some more. Can anyone recommend light-weight boots? I cant be bothered with big, clumpy ones I cant run in them. Ive got these trainers and wondered if anyone knows any boots similar to this size/build ... or recommend something better? Not too fussed about style just want some light ones!!
  19. Boots, Boots, Boots

    For about the last 5 years I have been wearing my old British Army issue boots, they served me well and indeed the boots would still last longer but I was going through laces faster than I could buy them in the last few months so I bit the bullet and decided to replace them. I spent hours trying boots on of all different types and makes. I tried heavy weight and light weight LOWA's, Danner boots, 5.11 tactical boots, heavy and light weight Jolly boots and one or two others I cant remember besides. I decided to steer clear of the magnums as I personally feel they are a bit of a false economy, they may only be £40 - 50 but with the level of wear and tear I am accumulating would only last a year or two whilst for about twice that I can get a pair that last more like 5 years or so. I opted in the end for the Jolly Safety Footware Light weight boots, a make I had never encountered before but seemed to offer best all round for comfort, waterproofing and flexibility whilst maintaining support of the ankle. The general consesus at the store (which is a warehouse located locally for an online retailer and whom I found to be exceptionally customer orientated, friendly and easy to work with (pm me if you want to know who, don't want to be accused of advertising a competitor for free!)) was that they are indeed probably the best boot on the market and at £80 less than a pair of Danner's (a lot of what you pay for with them is undoubtedly the name) a bargain to boot. So the point of the thread, to see if anyone else has come across them yet, owns a pair, what people think of them and general feedback / discussion.
