I'm old, and I cling firmly to the age-old adage of "Never go cheap on anything that rests between you and the earth." That includes shoes, tires and mattresses.



If you buy "Bean Boots" get the flannel/chamois lined ones at a minimum. Saving $20 for the unlined ones is a bad move.
The Thinsulate-lined ones and shearling (fur) lined ones are almost too warm for Virginia, but if you are unaccustomed to cold weather, it might not be a terrible purchase.

DO buy 3 pair of tall, thick boot socks to go with your new pair of boots, and make sure you try the boots on with the socks.

Personally, I don't care for duck boots. (any boot with the leather upper attached to a rubber bottom)
I prefer an all-leather boot for cold-weather.

Some random products:

https://www.amazon.com/Rockport-Mens-Elkhart-Snow-Boot/dp/B00F4OAMO6

https://www.amazon.com/Timberland-Chillberg-Mid-Waterproof-Insulated/dp/B0199NCPF6

https://www.amazon.com/Vasque-Snowblime-Ultradry-Insulated-Brindle/dp/B00TYJ29XE

https://www.amazon.com/Columbia-Mens-SNOWCROSS-Snow-Black/dp/B07JH35HZQ/

I prefer dark leather, so it looks like a dress shoe at first glance.

Some key features:

  1. You want to see the word(s) "Waterproof" or "Water proof".
  • Slushy melted snow loves to sneak inside non-waterproof shoes and make you walk around with soggy socks. Wet feet get really cold really quickly.
  • You don't have to see "Gore-Tex" for the boot to be waterproof.
  1. You want to see a nice, chunky tread pattern on the boot. Something that can bite into packed snow and give you traction & stability.
  • Pro-Tip: It is good manners to always stomp your boots clear just before you enter a building. Chunky treads sometimes fill with snow and carry it with you in the cleats.
  1. You want something that at least goes up over your ankles. A 6 to 8" boot is plenty. 9-12" boots are really only intended for deep woods activities.
  2. Resist the temptation to buy something with a zipper up the side, or velcro closure instead of big long laces. Laces are the way to go.

    If you apply a leather treatment to the boots at the end of every winter, before you throw them in the back of your closet, they will last 20 years or more.

    If you want to go old-school, and use something natural & traditional then:
    this or maybe this

    If you prefer to let science do the work for you then:

    this or maybe this could be the way to go.


    -----

    If money is tight, or if you are going to travel back home to Arizona after college and you'll likely never need cold-weather boots again in your life, anything $60 or so at Target or Walmart really can work just fine.

    Also, as I said before, good boots last a really long time. Weird as used shoes might be, Goodwill isn't as crazy an option as it might sound.

    -----

    Final comment on boot socks:

    Cotton and Acrylic socks are cheap and easy to find, and work adequately.
    But real wool is the warmest and toughest way to go, hands-down, and a super-soft merino wool is almost as soft as cotton.

Claypron. It's a split-leg apron that seems silly until you have one. My teacher had never seen one before, and bought one the first day I took mine into class. While we were in class.

u/RhinestoneTaco · 7 pointsr/Professors

Plain black masters robes with the pointy sleeves plus a hat can be got on Amazon for only about $75.

The advantage of these incredibly cheap robes is that the material is rather thin -- if you have to do graduation in May outdoors, having a thinner material that breathes a little bit is a huge plus.

u/OverlyPersonal · 4 pointsr/BurningMan

Pop up hampers and laundry bags have been good for me. Also sorting clothes by type so you're not emptying the bag looking for a pair of socks. One year I actually had paper bags labeled "socks" "T-shirts" "shorts" etc inside a large storage tub--not a terrible system as it worked out, but not space efficient either.

For laundry bags I use something like this that I bought at my local surplus store, and just throw them in the washing machine with the rest of my laundry at the end. They're also good for packing bulky stuff like bedding and jackets because you can stuff them anywhere you can find normally wasted space in the car.

Most are armed services themed, but there's tons of inexpensive "tactical patches" or "morale patches" on Amazon. US flags, punisher, funny ones, silly ones, and raunchy ones (check our related / also bought, some nsfw ones).

I got a name badge for my boy's pack and it turned out well, though it did take a bit longer than I expected to come through.

Not telling! Lol

u/baciodolce · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I've been considering that as well. I have a few saved on Amazon that I liked. Sometimes I get hot with aprons though and I often HATE the tie on the back of my neck, so I haven't pulled the trigger on that yet. But this is my preferred option so I have more shirt options, and just getting a chef's coat for a fancy event or something.

I also can't decide what color lol. My store colors are pink and brown, but I'm drawn to denim/navy/chambray aprons.

Apron 1 Apron 2 that's a little too expensive, but solves those problems

u/ChanounOzakaki · 2 pointsr/Persona5

I used [this apron] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019KW4PDQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) then I bought wooden buttons from Michael's and sewed through the strap at the top. Make sure you measure your neck cause it will stay there firmly.

It also smells so give it a wash when you get it

I just got this rothco ammo bag in black a few weeks ago, good price, good construction. The only downside is that the clasp isn't quick-release, you have to loop it through everytime you want to open or close the flap. I usually just let it hang loose.

It's a little bigger than I expected, about 2/3 the size of a thick college textbook.

u/Reddit_Bork · 1 pointr/boardgames

90% meeplemart.com - even though I'm a little pissed my last order from there had a damaged box, I reported it, and he never got back to me.

5% germangames.com - Generally when meeplemart was out of stock on stuff.

5% amazon.com - I have a friend who lives in the states. She's coming up soon, so I ordered a couple of things, plus a handy carrying bag.

u/BoogieBot · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

I have this bag, which I bought from Amazon in 2007.

I've used it almost every day since I bought it and it hasn't had any real structural wear to speak of. The olive drab dye faded to a green-khaki color within a year, but the material hasn't frayed nor have the seams come undone. The strap is weird and you have to knot it after adjusting to your preferred length, but that hasn't worn at all, either. The canvas is thick and heavy and the seams are heavy-gauge thread.

I carried textbooks in it for 4 years of college and now carry my stuff to work every day. I can't fit my lunchbox in it because it's small, but it's just right for my phone, ipod, a standard 8.5x11 notebook, some pens, other small doodads, and the brick-sized book I'm reading on the train these days. I can even fit my 12.1" netbook in its neoprene sleeve in there - it's a snug fit, though and there's not much room for other stuff.

My only gripe is that it's not waterproof.

u/rubtus · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would love this bag.

back to cool

u/vbrown17 · 1 pointr/craftexchange

How much time would the messenger bag take you? Here is the bag I was thinking of: https://www.amazon.com/Rothco-Classic-Paratrooper-Shoulder-Olive/dp/B000BFJE7O/ref=pd_sim_198_5?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=R37VSRFQ5M38DR58ZDKM

u/Pineapple_and_olives · 1 pointr/nursing

this is kind of what I was trying to describe

u/JCStorbeck · 1 pointr/StolenValor

The "brass" for the LTC silver maple leaves are easy enough to get and the price is the price I or anyone would pay at the AAFES or NEX to get some to put on my uniform, nothing really special about them. There are many officers wearing rank insignia they may have been given by someone who had held that rank and gave their old insignia to the younger officer and that is cool but if the emotional connection for the oak leaves wasn't there it is just some metal. You can buy them on Amazon today https://www.amazon.com/Army-Officer-Rank-Insignia-Colonel/dp/B0743VWWXJ/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=LTC+insignia&qid=1558631249&s=gateway&sr=8-3-spell


Yeah an old Field Jacket knock off with a lot of patches on it isn't going to earn you any crap from real military. Service from 1974 to 2007.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Personally I would definitely go with the gray or sand colors then unless you're all about school spirit. Those two colors are what I've found to be the safest. Until very recently my EDC bag was very close to this messenger bag but in a khaki brown color, and it looked pretty good with most everything I wore, and the Everlane I ordered was in the sand color

Edited for formatting, sorry I'm on mobile atm

u/ccbcc814 · 1 pointr/flying

I use a Map bag I got from the local Army Navy Surplus store, Its pretty small if you want to keep a headset inside but if all you keep is a tablet and Paper, Its plenty big. I could also recommend a Paratrooper Bag also from almost any Army/Navy Surplus store, Very big, slightly more expensive

u/pteradactylitis · 1 pointr/medicine

I have the stupidly named "Prestige Medical Nurses Car GO! Bag" (or, if you trust the title over the URL, "cargo" bag). I really like it -- the strap is adjustable to either be hand-carried (which I like for clinic) or a shoulder bag (which I like for inpatient), it's roomy with a lot of separate compartments. I have a compartment for physical exam stuff, a compartment for skin biopsy stuff and the mesh pocket on the side holds my phone and keeps it accessible (awesome for call.) The only problem is it has velcro on the bottom, which destroys clothes if you put it in your lap, so if you get it buy some velcro loops to put on the bottom.

u/shakeshakeshake · 1 pointr/StudentNurse

I didn't need to carry my clinical gear with me everyday. I also like to keep everything (edit: all my clinical gear, vs. just my stethoscope and BP cuff) in one bag that I can grab and go (especially when running out the door at 5:45am), so I bought this nurse's car bag from Amazon. It's big enough for the BP cuff, stethoscope, etc., and has enough little pockets to organize the smaller things (don't forget an ink pen and a mini tablet for taking notes in clinical). Highly recommend!

u/mrfurious · 0 pointsr/apple

I think this inCase slip-on, no zipper sleeve is the best one. Then I just put it in my regular school bag which is one of the best bags I've ever owned.
