Have owned the Combat Tourers for about a year and a half, and really like them. Have worn them in downpours several times, and they are as waterproof as most people need in my opinion, when treated as recommended with a beeswax/silicone mixture. Have never had my feet get a drop of water on them. They are quite stiff, but that is part of the protection, if they ever got really pliable, you would need new ones. Very comfortable to wear all day from day one. I'll buy another pair if I ever wear these out.
Another satisfied Combat Touring Boot owner.
I'd like to add that they are comfortable to walk in as well.
