Tanker Boots in Size 12 (North America Sizing) for myself (Yeah, I know, wishful thinking!), and another 1950s-style German Entrenching Tool for a friend of mine.
He showed me the shovel he had in his trunk, and was so proud of it, and I nearly puked. Small, cheap aluminum and plastic, and far too bulky for it's usefulness, and worthless against hard packed snow or any kind of ice.
