I picked up a pair of High Ground 400 grams last year. I had a gift card for Field and Stream and they were running a big sale-they cost $80. I like them a lot. 2 years of outdoor work in the woods, feet ares staying dry and they are holding up well.
My former wife bought me a pair of Danner's like 33 years ago for Xmas. They were like walking on rocks. The most uncomfortable boot I had ever worn. My guess is that they have come a long way since then.
Hmmmmm, I wonder if she did that on purpose to torture me ?
