    New account, couldn’t find my old one. Anyways...

    What’s the good boot for winter these days?

    I was looking at some 1200g Danner Pronghorns

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Depends on what you are doing in them. Walking, staying in one place, wet environment vs drier. Also what is your budget. I like old Bunny Boots for cold and low movement but they are terrible in climbing and are heavy so not the greatest for long walks. Mukluks are very warm but again, not ideal for walking. Lots of high end boots out there great for moving around in the winter but not great for sitting. All depends on how you are going to use them.

    I have some, I think, 800g Pronghorns I use for Elk Hunting in the rockies. No complaints from me after several seasons. I did put some additional waterproofing on mine in case I was standing in snow for long periods.

    The most warm pair of boots I've ever had are a pair of wiggy's. Not good for hiking IMO, but dang they keep my cold feet toasty warm. The inner boot can be worn like slippers in the house too.

    I did pick up a pair of Kamik Alborg that I have been hiking around in the last month or so, that I have been very happy with, not as warm as the wiggy's, but much easier to move around in.

    I just got me a pair of the 800g Pronghorns I used them this year hunting in the cascades and can't think of anything bad to say about them.

    I have the muck artic pros and love them. Warm and waterproof but on the stiff and heavy side.
