I am thinking about getting a pair of Crispi Thor ll for a New Mexico antelope hunt.
I used to be a Danner Pronghorn fan. They were very light, but I could only get one season out of 3 different pairs before they leaked.
I just got a pair of Crispi Wild Rocks for a late hunt.
Only took one 5 mile hike breaking them in.
They say 4 lbs for the pair, but when I lace them up, they don't feel heavy at all.
They are stiffer in the ankle area.
Crispi has a nylon ankle cover in there to help eliminate twisted ankles.
I am a happy hunter!

I ended up with the Crispi Colorado and I think they are now my favorite boot.

Well, I have about 30 or so miles on the Crispi Colorado now and they are sooooo comfortable. I know Crispi says little to know break in required, but these fit much better after some miles on them.

I wear Cripsi Crossover Pro Light's and am super happy with them. When they do eventually wear out, I will probably get the Briksdal for more of a mountain boot. I do like Adidas for regular on-trail hiking and want something that is more different / rough terrain oriented. The Colorado GTX are also popular.
