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.
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
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
i just bought a pair from cabelas when i was down for muzzleloader season and i have to say that i have weak ankles and couldnot go all day ,but with these boots you could not slow me down ,my kids were complaining wanting to go home , im tired ....very comfortable but sturdy and NO PAIN ,worth every penny
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.
