Meindl boots from Cabelas or something else?

I am looking to buy a good pair of boots for hiking and grouse hunting. I have a pair of Danners and have had Columbia in the past. I think the Columbia are comfortable but wear out too fast. I took a look at the boots at Cabelas and the Meindl seemed to be the most solidly made. Anyone know if they are worth the $250 price. Is there a better option? Thanks.

I have a pair of Cabela's Perfekt 7" Hikers by Meindl. I bought them in 08 and they are still water proof. The last couple pair of "upland" type boots that I've had have started to leak in less than a year. For me, they're comfortable and provide good support. I would buy another pair.

Re: Meindl boots from Cabelas or something else?

I have a couple pairs of Meindls and they are definatly worth the coin! I still wear a pair of Alaskan hunters that I bought in the mid 90's and they are still as waterproof and supporting as ever. I will say they need to be worn for a few weeks prior to doing any serious hiking. They have a definite break in period

Re: Meindl boots from Cabelas or something else?

the meindl boots are well worht the money. i have the perfect hunters and they are the most comfortable boots i have ever owned. i also have the alaskan hunters but they are more designed for mountain hunting. they have a real stiff ankle area like wearing a ski boot. they do not flex much. they were by far the most valuable asset to both of my mt goat hunts

Thanks guys, I'll give them a try. I guess I'll stay away from the alaskan hunters since I don't hunt real steep terrain. Thanks again.

I went from Danner Prohorns that at one time were a great boot but now they are made in China. The Perfekt hunters that I have are made in Germany and have a cork inssole that will mold to your feet. Even with 400 grams they are warmer then some o fteh 800 grams boots that I had in the past.
