if was planning on sitting for any length of time in cold weather , I'd probably be looking for a "felt pak" style like Nokia or Kodiak. Not the type of boot that you'd want to walk far in, but with a good layering of socks they will certainly keep the toes warmer than most others that I can think of. I have both these and 1000 g thinsulate/ Gore-tex styles and for just plain sitting on the watch, give a felt pak any time.......just my thoughts......anyhow
Danner Ft. Lewis 200gr Thinsulate ( the originals). This boot has served the vast majority of my biggame and upland bird hunting needs. Sized 1/2 size larger than my normal size to accomodate extra heavy weight SmartWool socks and sock liner in cold weather. In milder weather I install footbeds and wear with midweight wool socks and liner. Always been happy with Danner.
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
