I'm looking for a lightweight, pac type boot that has a fairly aggressive tread and ankle support for hiking in a mile or so, carrying a hang and hunt setup, over some fairly rough terrain before climbing and sitting a tree.

I would like something that would be good sitting in temps down to around freezing. I can add the Arctic Shields once it drops into the 20's. I've looked at $chnee's and some of the Baffin and Sorel offerings....just too many choices!

Any suggestions?

When it comes to pac boots, Schnees is it. You send them in and they rebuild them, replace parts etc. You buy 1 pair and they last you a lifetime. Not to mention they have so many models, sole design, weight and height.

Check with some on here that you may be pals with....some may get a 20% discount with the right connections.

I’ve been considering the schnees. If you send them in to get rebuilt do you pay a flat fee?

Yeah, I may just bite the bullet on a pair of Hunter II's and get an extra pair of liners.

I have more boots than I need... but those Schnees look pretty sweet..... and made in Montana.

They look similar to Bean boots only better.....

I have the Outfitter II but I am looking into a more aggressive sole.....my wish list boot is the Black Buffalo. The Hunter II is a good choice.

I bought my Lowa Sheep Hunters from Schnees also. Not sure of your boot size but if it`s under a 10 they have a Packer on sale for $230.....$70 off. 10 -13 is out of stock.

do the hunter II's need to be ordered a size larger to accommodate the liner or is the liner figured into the size... Sure wish I could try a pair on before ordering...
