THE GOOD
These are better then the Danner Mountain Light II. They have an insert and a wider toe box. They are waterproof like a boat and rediculously rugged.

THE BAD
The Big Sky is heavy and and the leather is stiffer than the Danners. These boots need break in time and the stitching may be less durable.

THE FIT & COMFORT
This boot has a straightish foot design. The leather is stiff and may give you a few hot spots for the first few outings.

THE PRICE
List price - $160.00
Average price - $139.95

OTHER NOTES
This boot has a copy cat that is $80 more and almost as good. It's the Danner Mountain Light II.

Available Sizes: Men's 8-12, 13, 14
