THE GOOD
You can put these babies in your will 'cause they'll out live you. They are waterproof like a boat and rediculously rugged.

THE BAD
The Mountain Light II is heavy and expensive (made in the U.S.A. adds a premium). It also needs some break-in time. The lining is durable but could be more comfortable.

THE FIT & COMFORT
This a narrow width boot with a straight foot design. The leather is supple but the design is still and solid and you might want to also get an insert.

THE PRICE
List price - $240.00
Average price - $224.95

OTHER NOTES
This boot has a copy cat that is $80 cheaper and a tad bit better. It's the Cabela's Big Sky.

Available Sizes: Men's 7-12, 13, 14, 15
