Danner Pronghorn Vs. Alsea

The pronghorns that I use for cold weather small game are probably on their last year. Does anyone have any experience with these vs. the new Alsea? They are only $30 different, but $30 is $30. Which is better for small game hiking through the brush?

I just bought a pair of the Alsea boot.
I wanted the pronghorns but $30 is a lot more.
I paid $170 at shydas in Lebanon.
I've never paid more than $100 for boots ( old Rockies when they were good).
I checked for reviews on the Alsea boots and didn't find much of anything.
They were touted as being better for someone who walks a lot in rough terrain.
Well I definitely like them.
It took a few hunting trips to break them in ; but they're waterproof,600 grams thinsulate,and actually very light .
I used them in the Adirondacks last month covering approximately 4-5 miles
through the forests and crossing creeks and also climbing uneven snow covered terrain ; and they grip nicely.
They lace up quick and are money well spent in my opinion.
If you're a hunter / hiker like me you won't be disappointed.

My 2 cents, if you wear your boots a lot, like practically live in them year round I'd seriously consider one of the Danner stitch-down boots (neither the Alsea or Pronghorn are stitch down boots). The stitchdowns are all Made in the USA (careful not all Danner boots are anymore.) They are well made and built to last and take more of bearing without coming apart. They cost more ($300-400) but IMO they're worth it if you wear your boots a lot and would still like to get many years out of them.

For the last few years I have had a pair of the Danner Grouse stitch downs and they're great. I'm now adding a pair of insulated, all leather stitch downs for deer hunting and late season stuff.

I had the Danner Pronghorn. I don't know if I got a lemon, but they were the worst boots I ever owned. Leaked within a month, started falling apart after 3. Haven't bought anything from Danner since.
