1) Boot Height: 8" would be about perfect

2) I only hunt out West in September, so Non-Insulated.

3) Waterproof is a must!

4) Keep them under 4lbs, a mildly stiff shank but a built in curved rocker to the sole of the boot to aid in hiking long distances.

1) Boot Height: 6”, 8” or 10”

I like 6"-8" on my back pack elk hunting trips.

10" hunting Pa whitetails

2) Insulated (how much) or Non-Insulated

Non-insulated for 6"-8" for elk hunting. My feet sweat a lot when I hike and any insulation makes it worse.

When PA deer hunting in November I want all the insulation.

3) Waterproof or Non-waterproof


Waterproof only.


4) Any added features that would make a good boot even better

I love a full rand.
Having wide sizes is really awesome.
Leather
Less stitching

The ability to send the boot back to you all, in order to have them resoled.

2) 200 grams of insulation
3) waterproof
4) enough rocker or flex in the front of the boot to keep walking on flats from being excruciating.

My favorite height boot overall is 8”. For me that works best. I usually wear non-insulated boots but would like to try out a pair of insulated ones for winter since my toes get cold easily. Waterproof boots is a plus but only if they are breathable. If not no waterproofing is better for me. One thing i would like in a boot to make it better is for it to be recraftable or easily repaired. Nothing worse than spending big coin kn an item and not being able to fix them.

I'm anxious to see the Hoffman Hunter in action. They appear to be a very solid built boot.

2. Non Insulated
3. Water proof
4. Full Rubber rand and some custom insoles for people that have arch issues or plantar fasciitis.

3. Waterproof for sure.
4. Not too stiff but stiff enough to support my feet during heavy pack outs.
5. All leather construction.

Thanks for the opportunity!👍

Let's keep it simple - 8" noninsulated and waterproof.

Extra feature? Ankle stability. I log of ton of miles on steep unstable terrain. I need a boot that's gonna protect everything that's in them and more. The more stable the boot, the better.

1) Boot Height:
a. For early season I'd run an 8" boot and then a 10" for when the snow flies.

2) Insulated (how much) or Non-Insulated
a. Non insulated for early season and insulated for late season. How much? Options in between 400g and 1000g are non existent. I'd love a boot that was in the 600g or 800g range

3) Waterproof or Non-waterproof
a. Waterproof 100%.

4) Any added features that would make a good boot even better

a. Medium firm for days in the 10-15 mile range in steep country. Ankle support, and well thought out toe grips. Insole made to keep bacteria away while offering memory foam comfort.

There's not one perfect boot for where I hunt. As you can tell, I'm a two boot kinda guy and love giving my money to companies who know their craft, inside and out, and are based in the USA.
