Default Boots & Bag

Greetings all ! been creeping around the forums for a bit and now I must lean on the community for some advice with some gear choices I need to make.

Looking for the following, preferably in a Canadian market, but not a necessity.

Structure Boots - I was wondering if anyone knew of a particular brand that are rubber but have a wide calf option available. Having a hard time locating anything with this option that is rubber.

Gear Bag - Trying to find a bag that is LARGE, the gear that needs to be carried in it is for a gentleman this is 6'8 so you can only imagine the size. All bags that I have found were remarkably small for his gear, even the ones marketed as large.

Any help is greatly appreciated !

Stay safe all !

The boot I found best for a wide foot is the Fire Ranger brand.

As for a bag, I'm not small either. I use a regular bag but leave my helmet hanging on the outside. Not the best but it works.

Otherwise a goalie bag designed for hockey gear will be large enough, almost too big and some what cumbersome.

Good luck

Thanks for the reply. I'm considering the goalie bag as an option at this point.

The boot issue is a wide calf, not so much the foot. The boot size is not an issue but the calf area is just too tight for this member, thought about cutting them but that just doesn't seem like a good idea. I will check out the Fire Ranger Brand.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated !

We had to purchase a new pair of boots for a member because he was having issues with the opening size on his rubber boots. We went with a pair of leather Fire Dex boots through Wholesale Fire, they recommended them as they had the largest opening, and the member requiring them has been happy. Can't recall the price, but $400 ball park.
