Re: Boots

So far, I like them. Still kind of breaking them in but i wore them in some really wet snow and puddles and never had a problem. They are lite like a sneaker.

Re: Boots

Have theSchnees 10'' outfitter II, I love them,you will need a little more support if it is rocky. Also have a pair of Cabelas Meindls they are holding up well and are comfortable on long hikes, I have bunyons so a lot of boots are not comfortable. Had a lot of Danners over the years, no problem there either.I try to take dry socks along and use leather conditioner regularly.

Re: Boots

Danner, I dont know what style they are but they are real comfortable until it gets below freezing. If your walking it alright but if you set still long my feet get cold. They fit easily into a stirrup too.

Re: Boots

For elk hunting rifle season in the Rockies I wear either my Matterhorn 1998 boots or Miendel Denali (old model) boots. Generally I mostly wear the Matterhorns. If the snow is deep I bring knee high gortex gaitors. I've always had good luck with both boots. Layered with heavy weight wool socks I'm comfortable in temps down into the upper teens while statonary. On my feet in motion and I've been comfortable into single digit temps. But for really freezing arctic temps I wear felt lined pack boots with heavy socks. Generally for rocky terrain I like a stiffer midsole and outsole like the Denali. For open meadows and valleys or forested areas I wear the Matterhorns.

Re: Boots

I have the Irish Setter Grizzly Tracker 1000gr and the first time I wore em was the first day of the hunt and I hiked around in the snow all day long and they were more than comfortable and my feet were warm and dry all day long.
