Good boot, needs a stronger zipper
I've purchased dozens of these boots, or of similar line from Bates, over the last decade. They each last just about eight months to a year before I need to replace them. Invariably it is the zipper that breaks, and it's always the pull tab. It literally snaps in two in my hand as I zip it up. If the zipper would be strengthened this would be an absolutely flawless product.
