Hi Bill H, yes US jungle boots get my vote, not sure about Matterhorns as I was wearing them recently when I hurt my foot, they have an almost total lack of ankle support!
British reations are quite good, the old tinned ones were great but heavy, the Boil in the Bag probably the best I have come accross but the new "ultra cheap" Training Ration Pack GP is a disgrace, especially since its been finding its way onto operations (not what it was intended for).
Have you tried German rats? they are....er interesting. As for the US MRE probably the most disgusting thing I have tasted, once though a long time ago (about twenty years) I was given US tinned rations which apart from a very strange cheese in a can were quite nice.
Regards James K
