I bought 1000gm Irish Setter Elk Trackers 10 ago for a elk hunt. Still wearing them. Liked them so well, pick up a pair of 200gm for the warmer days or drives.

My 20 y/o Cabela's still stay dry. Gortex lined. I have bought another pair, but still like the old reliable ones. I do spray them with protector every so often, but they work. Current model: https://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabe...2.uts?slotId=0

I bought a pair if Hi Tec altitude IV boots, ankle high about 8 years ago and I have worn them hard, they are leather but light weight and I have never had wet feet and I cross streams and I do not get cold feet in them. When I wear them out i will replace them with the same. They sell between 70 and 80 something bucks, depending where you buy them. https://www.zappos.com/p/hi-tec-alti...181121165642:s

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Same here. The only time I wear leather anymore is when I go West. In 32 days hunting Utah, I saw it rain once.

+2 for the Muck boots. I havn't walked for more than a few miles in them, but at those distances, they seem to work fine. When its really cold, I ware Alpaca wool socks in them.

My buddies always ask me if I recently bought any brand new pairs of boots because i go through boots like people wear sneakers.
I always look for hunting and work boots that have gortex. Listed below are some of the boots that I recall having.

I had a pair of Rockies and after about 3 or 4 years they leaked, so I replaced them with wolverines and they leaked on my very first outing. Returned them anbought Danners. As mentioned by others Danners pronghorn were one of the best pair of boots I had but after several years of hard use they leaked. I was going to buy another pair but I read some bad reviews because they were now being made in china. I then replaced them with Cabela's Perfek hunter boots that are made in Germany. Had these boots for about 6 years now and still going strong.

I had a great pair of hiking boots (then work boots) that I bought at Cabelas when they first opened in Hamburg PA that I bought for $25. during a sidewalk sale. I had them for over ten years until the soles started to fall and they never leaked.

I also have sorels pac boots over 30 years old that I still wear on occasions. Cabelas knee High boots, and a pair of 10 inch lacrosse rubber boots with a zipper in the front . My go to boots for the majority of my hunting and yard work. Never had any leaks in any of these boots,

I'll give you another great review for Irish Setter boots. For the past few years, my feet have been chronically getting cold. I've had other boots up to 1200 grams and they still got cold. Last year, right after Christmas, one of our local shops had boots on sale. The salesperson recommended these Irish Setter 2000 gram boots and I bought them. The first day of bear season this year was the first I wore them. 10 inches of snow on the ground and I had to cross a stream to get where I was going. My feet stayed dry and never even began to get cold all day, even standing in all that snow.

Update on boots: held up fine 6 days deer hunting, 3 rabbit hunting trips, no water leaks, hopefully I can get couple of years out of them
