Meinld, Dovre, Glockner, Taiga all get my vote. Havent had others other than Lundhag Professionals which i dont wear a great deal.

 

Havent tried the HanWag, Lowa etc but my Mrs had the Altberg and seems to like them well enough. Not as comfy as the meindl but half the money on ebay!

what boot you want it's fully depends on situation.There are many kinds of hunting boots like cold weather hunting boots,warer proof,snake prof,warmest hunting boots,Deer hunting boots etc.If you go to hunt in the water you should select warer proof hunting boots like baffin water proof hunting boots.Happy hunting life

i just bought these irish setter 'elk tracker' boots.

not sure if they are available back in blighty.

 

these are gortex lined with 1000gram of thinsulate.

from all the boot reviews i read,these are supposed to be the dogs danglys.

price in cables is $360 canadian,some places in the states charge $185 us

I really rate my Lundhags and they have the added benefit of no lining to go wrong which means they're more breathable. You get your waterproofing from the treatment you add to them and you vary the heating by varying your thickness of second sock (with a thin woolen sock next to your foot).

Ultimately though the old adage is true...the best boot is one that fits!

I've had good luck with Danner boots. Mine are 12 years old and still OK.

 

I was looking at Kenetrek boots. Has anyone had experience with them?

Made in Italy I believe.
