Tactical Research Khyber Mountain Hybrid II

Built to excel in hot weather and rocky terrain, the Tactical Research Khyber Mountain Hybrid boots deliver phenomenal comfort, breathability, protection and functionality. These boots are designed for combat, but they also perform well in tactical operations or any kind of work that's strenuous, hazardous and long-lasting. Featuring a rugged flesh-out suede and nylon upper, these boots are lightweight and come with a breathable, moisture-wicking lining. The TR-1 orthotic insole provides exceptional cushion, fights the growth of bacteria and increases airflow, while the EVA midsole absorbs shock. A contoured heel and arch support also helps to stabilize the foot. The aggressive outsole has sharp-angled lugs and a defined heel to optimize traction even on the most uneven terrain. The serrated toe bumper helps in climbing and crawling as well.

    • Not bad, but not great.
      Reviewer: Robert Shane

      If like them better if they were made I the U.S. They were true to size. The insole could have more cushion. When you look down on them while wearing them. None of the stitching is consistent from one boot to the other. So they actually fit different because The laces tighten at a different point. The sole on the right side comes up further in the front than on the left side by at least 1/2 inch. It almost looks like they were made in 2different factories. Pretty typical for Chinese produced products. For the price I kind of expected something a little better. I'm kind of stuck with them since my last pair were garbage and I'm using them for work, I literally put them on the day they came in and went back to work. They probably would have been a better boot if the QC was there. I won't buy another pair though

      Hard for me to offer a full review; but as of now: They fit like I expected, they feel like a good mix of leightweight, but still durable. Initially, it was a hassle to get the tongue to seat properly, but after wrestling with it a few outings, it finally stayed put. For the price, I think you'll be happy wth this buy

      I have drop foot on my left leg, and until now I have found a pair of boots that feels great even wearing the AFO with it. the length of the boot provides me with that extra leg/ ankle support that I was looking for while soft enough that it doesn't rub it raw.

      Look great! A little stiff out of the box (been wearing boots like this for years so that's to be expected). After couple days breaking in, they are incredibly comfortable. I did swap out the insole to one with more cushion. I do that for all my shoes so not really a gig on them. I wear boots all day every day and while only had these a couple of weeks, I'm thoroughly impressed. I work in Colorado so everything from dry dirt, to mud to pavement to snow and ice. Even today the grip saved me from a busting my ass on ice. If they hold up and they look like they should, I've got my boots of the future. Great product so highly recommend. Just be prepared for break in.

      Boots are well made and durable- I have made good experience with Belleville boots. They seem to have fixed the issue with the older models that resulted in chewed up laces. Best price on these boots on Tacticalgear.com with super fast shipping (standard shipping came in 3 days).

      These boots are very comfortable. If your looking for a boot with lots of traction on steep mountain Rocky terrain, these are the boots for you. Light weight, great ankle support with lots of traction!!! Love these boots so much I bought a second pair in OD green.

      While I have only had these boots a week, I must say that so far they are pretty comfortable. I have issues with plantar fasciitis and the orthopedic insoles in these boots seem to be helping with that condition.

      8/11/2016

      Boots came in 2 days, direct from manufacturer, which is Belleview, Belleville, whatever. Fit is good, seem to be well made/designed. Comfortable from day one, which is today. They are NOT like walking on clouds. I can tell the type of ground I am walking on, which I rather like. My only issue so far, the darn LACES ARE TOO SHORT! Would it cut into their profit margin that much to supply the boots with laces long enough to go to the top of the boots and still have enough left to tie a knot? Other than that, seem OK. BTW - customer service is excelent. Will continue to buy from them

      Reviewer: DeltaGamaOmega

      5/15/2016

      Excellent boots. Fit, look, feel as expected. Have only had them for a couple of weeks so far but are real comfortable. I have used a good anti fatigue insert. I usually wear size 10 but purchased a 10 1/2 to accommodate an insert. I've learned from purchases in the past that boots like these tend to run a little on the narrow and tight so that inserts would make the fit far too tight. Some of the other reviews I've read claim that the boot eyelets dig into the angles but I've had no problem so far. Of course every ones feet are different even if they wear the same size. Haven't had a chance to really put these through their paces yet. Will post another review as time goes by but so far so good.

    • Fantastic boots, with slight modification!
      Reviewer: Nathan Banks

      2/4/2016

      As an archaeologist working in mountains, I got these boots for field work based upon features, ratings, etc. Upon receiving them, I also had a major seam problem only on the left boot, at first. The seam connecting the heel and calf segments, in the "Achilles'" area quickly rubbed the skin raw and doubling socks didn't help. I bought some adhesive heel liners for a couple of bucks and placed them over the seams (on both sides, just in case) and use a shoe horn to prolong the liners' life. Since then, they are fantastic! Possibly my favorite boots to date. They're very light and flexible, so they don't feel too far off "tennis" shoes with ankle support and good ventilation, but also featuring great, grippy, Vibram soles. As long as I don't wade, they're perfect. If I can predict wading, I'll wear some waterproof ones that day!

      Reviewer: Gilberto Roman

      1/26/2016

      I bought these boots based on reviews and word of mouth. I quickly found out that the seems that attach the tongue to the boot dig into your ankle. Even doubling my socks or adding extra padding isn't enough to make them comfortable enough to wear. I wouldn't recommend these boots to anyone who does a lot of walking, running, or combat training.

    • Khyber MH II boots are GREAT!!
      Reviewer: Myrlande Georgia

      1/24/2016

      It took me a couple of months to decide on a pair of boots; so, I chose the Khyber MH II because of it's strong made materials, good looks and its ankle protection design. And so I bought two pairs of it, the good reviews were helpful on my decision as well. I love this boots!! I've had them for one year and wore them everyday; in different terrain: muddy swamp-like, rocky roads, sands and uneven concrete walkways. The boots is easy to clean even after a muddy swamp experience. One day, I tripped over a wire and landed on a rocky path with no injuries to my ankles. It was a good thing that I only wear Khyber MH II boots. Actually, three other soldiers purchase the Khyber II boots after they saw it on my feet and asked me about it. After, I gave it a glowing review, they bought their pairs and they too love these boots.

      These Khyber's are the first boot I've ever wore in my life and they are great for just about anything in any weather, slight pinch in the ankle area when i first got them but nothing a extra insole cant fix now the boots fit perfect . These boots impressed me so much i got the Desert Tan and the Sage Green one's and love them both . Make sure you get one size smaller than your normal size .

      Reviewer: Archie Nelson Jr.

      12/17/2015

      I got these earlier than expected so TY, TG. They are extremely comfortable on first donning EXCEPT the rivets near the tongue gusseting bit my ankles fierce for a bit just after putting them on the first two days. It's not as noticeable after a little while and maybe they just need broken in but it seems to be something that needs addressed by Tactical Research as mine is not the first complaint about it. Other than that I am happy and they seem to be as advertised. I would get another pair and get them from Tactical Gear again. **These do have heat ports and it is not shown in photo so be aware these are hot weather assault boots. Temperate rainy WV currently is not even close freezing my feet in the least however.

I bought two pairs originally because of the quality materials, good looks and made for heavy-carrying load ease. This Khyber Hybrid II delivers!! I would recommend this boots to anyone, especially for outdoors activities.

    • NOT DA PAM 670-1 Compliant
      Reviewer: Mike

      4/29/2015

      I purchased these because I needed an inexpensive, compliant, warm weather boot. I come to find out that these are not compliant at all. The rubber extending up the back makes these boots NON-Compliant under DA Pam 670-1. It's a shame because the boots are extremely comfortable, but unusable for me at work. It would be a shame for another soldier to loose $120 of their hard earned money the way I did. Let my loss be your lesson.
