Through experience, good and bad, I have evolved to 400 gram Thinsulate and Gor-Tex hunting boots, Wigwam socks and Polypropylene liners for all hot and cold weather hunting. Deer hunting from a stand in below Zero weather in NY is the only exception. In that instance I use Sorrel -100 deg snow packs. Someone once told me Gor-tex was only guaranteed for 2 years that may or may not be true. What I do know is that the Browning boots(made by Red Wing) that I just retired started leaking this year, they were purchased in 1989, worn every year and resoled once. I wish I bought three more pair of them but they are no longer produced. I settled on Danner GTX 400 gram Thinsulate and Gor-tex. Hope they are half the shoe the Brownings were.
