Boots for Hunting high / backpacking

Has anyone used the Kayland Apex Rock boots?

I think of using them for Tahr- Hunting.

However, I doubt they last long in shingelscrees?

Very light though at 750grams a pair, and fit step-in crampons.

I have never been hunting in those conditions. I know that a lot of the SCI members are promoting Kenetrek, I know a few guides that are using Kenetrek, Scarpa and HanWag. I believe they fit the crampons also.

Post pics when you get back!!! Good luck on the hunt.

Re: Boots for Hunting high / backpacking

I've had great luck with Vasque in a shorter boot. I wore them in New Zealand this April. I also have a 4 year old pair of Meindl Perfeckt Hunters that I wear religiously hunting around home and have worn them in the Montana high country for 7 days in knee deep snow. I would recommend that boot as well although they are certainly not a "light" boot but as far as rugged, I've not seen their equal.

I was able to get these
Danner - Desert TFX Rough-Out GTX Military Boots - Boots
on sale but I am concerned after seeing them in person that the sole may not be aggressive enough.

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.
