Re: Muck boot insulation ??
I like my muckboots, I own both artic sports and the muckmaster boots (I think the woody-max is just a camo version of the artic sport, but not 100%)
I think you would be happy with either, if I was only going to buy one pair and use them specifically for anything bear season and later I would buy the artic sports then take a few pairs of socks, walk in in one pair switch to a warmer pair on stand as needed.
If I was going to use them year round for different odd jobs, i'd go with the muckmasters and adjust socks accordingly.
