Ok good, I am 145 pounds so I am small. I really like the fact that it has Makarov pocket. I also am not very keen of the fur because it kind of scratches my skin. O well. I cant wait until it get here in about a month.

I now what you are saying i want to get a Gorka but the sizes are confusing i don't want what's too big, then its the price for the shipping back and forward (this goes for other sites too. Tried buying a pair English size 10 boot and get sent a pair of size Euro 44 which only come to about 9 1/2) .

As to clothing why not put a tape measure across arm pit to arm pit and the waist then you now the true size Idea Idea Idea

Topknot

I needed a pair of boots in size 42(EU) and got them, then discovered that they are okay in length but not wide enough. They fit but they are far from comfortable.
Getting the sizes right isnt always easy.

generally I try to avoid buying boots online...I mean even with total research on sizes, it's still possible the size would be off when it arrives and we try it on. The one time I bought boots online was a Altama military boot and got the right size (called them up up) but it was long enough but not wide enough! thankfully it worked out fine as I broke in the leather and made it fit after repeated use.

the next time I bought a jungle boot, it was from the surplus store and I was allowed to try it on!

Last time I bought boots, they were DDR jackboots and I tried them on at the buyers. I would have bought a size too large otherwise.
