"High End Hunting Boots"

Dryflyelk just posted a detailed review of some of the best hunting boots out there, including Meindls, Lowas, Kenetreks, Hanwags and Zamberlans. If you are in the market for some new hunting boots, you should check it out:

By the way, that boot collection is likely worth more than my car!

Side by side by side by side is the only way to really judge a boot effectively in my opinion. I agree with you on the Hanwags although I prefer the Mountain Lights, and also on the Lowas, great boots (and they are avaialble in Wide).

Not a Cabelas Meindl fan, although I like some of their German models, they are too hard on the bottoms for me which was only revealed after 10 or 15 miles out on the mountain under a load. It gets expensive but I have found after testing hundreds of boots that the personality of each pair only becomes truly known out on the trail humping a pack up one side and down the other.

Ambiguous on the Kenes, certainly not bad but I've found others I liked better.

I am an Asolo fan (FSN95) but I don't think that the Sassalong is offered in the US anymore, but I could be wrong, which is too bad because it was also offered in a Wide version.

I think that those Zams are too soft (they remind me of Crispis in that respect) and flexible for a boot with a full rand.

The other two boots I like in that class are Scarpas. The Escape and Liskamm GTX which I rate right up there with the Lowas and Hanwags.

But, like you said it is all about fit. Nice job.
