Since then, these boots have survived several years of elk hunting and guiding in some very rough rocky country in NM and are no worse for wear.
They are lightly insulated, and the only downside is they are fairly heavy. However, if you want a pair of boots that will not let you down in rough country I don't think you have to look any further.
I couldn't find this model - sheephunter. Which model is it?
I've tried the Kayland Apex Rock and MXD on, and they fit well, but I am worried about durability because of all the seams and exposed softer areas..
The Kenetrek, preferably the Desert Hunter, would be my choice if they were sold over here and fit me...!
I'll look into the Lowas and Crispi as they are sold here too.
When I find a durable boot that fit I'll buy two pairs!!;)
