OK, so it appears my first trip to Alaska is still on for late August. Flying in to bowhunt for caribou on the north face of the Brooks Mountain Range. Had intended to use my Christmas money to purchase a new tent, but my new hunting partner has that covered. So, turning my attention elsewhere.
I've learned footwear is a very big deal regardless of where I'm hunting. I have a couple good pair of Lowa boots and a couple good pair of knee high, ankle fit rubber boots. Figure a pair of good gaiters will be worth their weight in gold.
Came across these while surfing the web recently:
Curious what you guys think of these for stream crossings? Lightweight, over the boot, rubber soled for traction, fits easily in the backpack.....seems like a good fit on the surface.
So, what do you think? Good idea, bad idea, alternatives?
As always, appreciate the feedback!
