Thread: What depth

  1. #1

    What depth

    If you were to test a pair of Black Islander Diotto boots, what depth of water would you test them in?

    Usually the water resistance of hiking boots is taken on faith or reputation, isn't it? ~Muir

    I have a pair and i think that they leak somewhere at the bottom. Not enough to be annoying but the insole gets a bit damp sometimes.

    Wont be buying another pair this season i dont think!

    Aoart from that i would expect them to be waterproof as long as the water isnt over the top

    Pretty much the same as my experience, my right foot got wet.Annoying as the boots were only 4 weeks old. More to come!!

    Had a similar issue and it was acknowledged there had been an issue.
    Boots changed out and never had a problem since, highly recommend them and suggest if you do have a problem then contact the retailer.

    First pair I had leaked within 6 weeks and had a hard time convincing them that they leaked, eventually they sent a new pair out and I have had no problems since then. They are very comfy though
