Re: Boots for Hunting high / backpacking
I havne not tried the Kayland's, I bought a pair of Asolo Fugitive GTX this year and they are the best boots I have found yet and seem to be very durable so far. I live in AZ where it is rocks and stickers everywhere and they still look good. I have had Danner's, Cabela's, Irish Setters, Rockies, and others and these are far better. Not saying the others arent good, still like the Danners, these just fit me the best.
No perfect answer on boots just try on a bunch and find some that fit well and abandon searching for one brand just get the features you want in the one that fits the best and change your socks often and your feet will be happy.
