Thread: CALK BOOTS for icy WORK-HIKING & HUNTING.

  1. #1

    Default CALK BOOTS for icy WORK-HIKING & HUNTING.

    My 69 y/o butt could not do homestead chores or hike without these "TYPE" boots in Alaska winters.

    I like these for quick trips to the mailbox (1/2 mile walk away)....But they are no good for long walks

    Most people in Valdez buy the rubber slip on ones with the studs inserted. Just slip the on and off.

    I have those also, and they work good if I go to town. But you can't hike 5 miles in off trail wilderness with them, as they keep getting loose, and sticks jam between them and the bottom of the boots. If I am doing recon I wear the Pack-Calk Boots, but they suck for quick runs to the mailbox, as it is a big deal to get them laced up.
