Stealth Force 8.0 Side Zip is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from No factory inspection?I ordered these last week and was disappointed when they showed up. I have been a police officer for 24 years and know there are better boots out there and thought the ratings and price were worth the change; however, he stitching on one of the boots was so far off, the laces' loop came loose the first time I tried to put the boot on. Perhaps they were the that one-in-a-thousand defects not caught at the factory (these boots were made in Cambodia) and the others are fine. Perhaps the favorable reviews, all nearly a year or more old, reflect a different factory's product? I am not satisfied at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't need to buy any other brand.I love these boots and wouldn't recommend any other brand after trying Magnums. When it comes to comfort, support, durability and looks it doesn't get any better. I weigh 300+ pounds and having a comfortable, reliable shoe is a must especially considering I'm on my feet all night long. Whether standing in one spot for long periods of time, walking or running long distances no matter if its inside or outside, wet or dry, my feet feel great and my boots withstand the puishment. I have had my boots for almost two years and they're still in great condition. Do notlet the price of these boots deter you. They will last longer than a cheaper brand and your feet and ankles will thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only boot for huge feetThis is the only tactical boot I could find that came in a size 17. I could really use a size 17 wide but these boots are doing the job just fine. I was amazed to see that they are comfortable, durable, and still look cool. Out of all the thousands of tactical boots out there these are the only ones that come in 17 and fit my purposes. Thank you Magnum for making a great boot in my size that actually works. I've been using them every day for three months and have really put them to the test and they are still in great shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FEATURESI have comments on two features: 1. I would like to see the zipper opening made in such a way that the foot can be inserted while the laces are tied. I switched this time to the model that doesn't have a zipper. 2. MOST IMPORTANT. The elastic bands that the laces pass through are the weak points in the boots. I have had two pairs where the elastic band broke well before the boot wore out. That left me with less support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable boot I've wornThere is only one downside, it's the durability of the zipper. Now with that said, I love the donning and offing ease, durability and most of all the miles and miles of hiking comfort that I've had. I'm also a motocycle rider and these are the ones I use on every trip. Cleaning and polishing is a breeze and it holds a shine to any military boot out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing boot, best I've ever worn!!!Took them out the box and have never looked back. Two years later after snow, mud, grease, oil, gas, salt, and anything else I can throw at them they still feel and look amazing. When these finally give out I'll be buying another pair. Customer for life!

What are the differences between the viper and the stealth? Which one is lightest?

Asked by: 20boz
The Viper Pro is just about 1oz lighter than the Stealth Force boots. However, the Stealth Force boots tend to give people a better fit, and has an anti-odor and anti-microbial liner inside the boot. Overall the Stealth Force is more comfortable for most people.

Can you get in and out with zipper open and laces tied?

Asked by: Don1
It depends on how tight you lace them, and where you lace them tight. I leave mine just barely loose enough to slip in and zip up.

Why did you quit making this boot in a size 17? My husband has been buying this particular boot for over two years now. He's a truck driver and loves these particular boots. He prefers the 8in over the 6in. Can we still get 17 in this?

Asked by: TrkWife
This particular boot will be restocked in a size 17 in May. The composite toe version with side zip in a size 17 is currently available.

Hi, I bought two pairs of Stealth Force 8.0 DSZ about three or four years ago. Are these still available? If not what would be the closest Magnum equivalent?

Asked by: Peedie

I'm looking for a pair of Magnum classics, size 8 1/2. They were made in Vietnam in 2004. Under the title is code "HTV-6511". My Father wants a replacement pair as these boots are the most comfortable fit. Can you help?
