Re: Boot insulation
I am another guy that has many pairs of boots. I can't imagine picking one style or weight for a "do-all" pair. I have 200, 400, 600, and 1,000 gram hunting boots, a pair of Arctic Muck boots, and a pair of Pac boots, along with uninsulated work boots and hikers.
Before anyone thinks I am rich, I have picked these boots up over the last 15 years or so, mostly on sale. I could get by with uninsulated work boots, a 400 gram hunting boot and the Mucks-but I enjoy my time outdoors working and hunting too much to compromise.
