Re: Long Range Hunting Footwear Kenetreck Boots
I'm thinking of using a pair of the Hardscrabble or Desert Guide for the alpine hunting on the Western Coast og New Zealand. I suppose the wear on the boots Will be somewhat similar to BC?
I Wonder if the sole to leather bond on the sides on the Desert guide is strong enough? The rubber band on the Hardscrabble is a better solution I think.
It is more rainy in NZ, so I might consider the Desert Guide as it probably dry up again quicker. Wet boots are inevitable, so have mixed experience with insulated membrane boots... Wet boots for weeks on end destroys them pretty quick.. The Desert Guide seems ideal, provided it is greased up properly. I also tend to have warm feet, so don't like the membraneboots for that reason too.
How is the fit compared with other brands like Scarpa, Meindl, HanWag, kayland etc?
I have a wide forefoot, and don't have any stores selling them here in Norway, som might take the chance to order a pair..
