These are extremely comfortable & durable boots. Absolute top quality. The G3 outsole is by far the best sole available for walking on wet/slippery rocks in Goat & Sheep country. They were very easy & fast to break in. These are the best boots I've owned. I now wish they would make this same boot in a tall version

I bought these boots for winter hunting in montana and after the tedious break in i am quite impressed. the cork in the soles stop ice slipping and sliding amazingly. the primaloft works well to keep my feet warm standing around for hours in the very cold (10F) But the most impressive part to me is that the cooling part of the design makes the boots not too hot up to about 40 degrees or better. I am going to purchase a cooler pair for bow hunting season and backpacking (70f).


The perfect combination of stability, ergonomics and slip resistance. Embedded loops of texturized fabric placed within the rubber lugs dramatically improve grip on icy terrain.
