    I think the best would be Only Registered Users Can See Links. or Superlight boots (the same muck boots but ultra light)

    Wow look at the prices. I think the good old wellies and proper woollen socks would be the way to go.

    I am only using HARKILA GTX STALKER

    Only Registered Users Can See Links.

    I don't maintain them ,expose to gravel I kick rock and sand and I really abuse them many session with them warm and good grip no foot plant pain when digging .......yes its over 2 hundred but feet are important.................I also go detecting on motorbike so no probs.....they start to show their age but as I say no maintenance at all will buy another pair when they are gone.

    1 week ago I bought actoncanada's "Adventure" boots with 60% discount, totally for eur 49 at Yamaha center where boat motor I brought for maintenance. Huge discount is what forced me to buy them. Boots come with removable insulated liners and no metal parts at all

    Boots

    actoncanada_adventure.jpg
    Very lightweight, also very sturdy; you will fall in love with this boot! Its lightness is due to its EVA shell and upper. Its natural rubber outsole is lightweight, long lasting, anti-skidding and puncture resistant. The Adventure is ideal for hunting, fishing and for many other outdoor activities requiring foolproof protection against water. Good or bad weather, this boot is made to be worn; it even offers a comfort zone up to -75°F to keep your feet warm in freezing cold temperature

    Liner
    ifelt.jpg

    The Acton Ifelt liners are made of materials ultra effective against cold:
    1. Polypropylene : Absorbs and quickly evacuates moisture toward outside.
    2. Wool & polypropylene combination : Provides the desired comfort and insulation while evacuating dampness to the outside.
    3. Metaltek: Thanks to its reflective properties and tiny pores, it retains body heat, prevents the cold from penetrating and lets moisture out
    4. Brushed nylon : For an ultimate confort
    5. Cushioned foam: Insulating and very comfortable

    I'm planning to have yet another liner. Once liner get moistured, I'll replace it with spare one and boots will be dry again.

    There is another model "Discovery" I tried, it's worthy one I would say.

    PS.
    It's the very time to buy winter boots ;)

    I picked up them with discounted price of eur 50. As far as I understand, the best time to buy winter boots is the last month of winter or at a spring time

    I normally use Dunlop purofort + boot, they held up well fine until a coyote chewed one up. I'm using a Lacrosse alpha burly but I liked the Dunlops better.
