These boots have been a game changer for me. I have never invested in hunting boots the way that I should have, and I paid the price for it on a hunt last year. After leaving that hunt I knew I was going to get a good pair of boots. These are what I decided on, and I haven't been disappointed. They are lightweight, have great grip on the bottom, and are very comfortable. My favorite thing about them is the BOA lacing system. It makes getting them on and off, quick and easy. It also helps you really snug the boots tight, if you are in a situation that you feel like you need more support in. Great pair of boots.
