I haven't used that particular model, but I see one of the STP reviews is by some schmuck going by "Hells Canyon" and he gushes about them.
you're a funny man Matt!
Salmo, used these boots this year and they are awesome. Much more comfortable than the sasslongs or Kenetreks I had been trying for the past 6 months. Not as stiff but their comfort and ease of break-in was awesome! Still going strong after 35 days in the field this fall!
Funny how we all get lemons from time to time!
I had 3 sets of sassalongs......2 good and one had the sole fall off on a hunt.
Did love the two good sets!
Mike are you using the boots in my link or the all leather ones?
I'm using the ones in your link (Brown color). My next pair will be the Alaskans as I think they might last longer with the full leather construction. I can see my Dakotas lasting 3-4 seasons though I've never had GoreTex in a boot last more than 2.
