    I really like La Crosse ankle fit hip boots, they are comfortable and durable. I have slogged many miles in them. TS

        I really like the La Crosse ankle fit with the air bob sole, as well and have worn out several pairs over the years, but I would be tempted to give the muck hip boots a shot. I have a pair of the muck knee boots and they are fantastic! They are very warm, comfortable, have decent support, and durable. I cannot help to think that their hip boots wouldn't also be great. The only draw back to them would be that they will be warm.

          The LaCrosse is about it, but a darned poor replacement for the Marathon boot of two decades ago.

            hip boots

            Does anybody know of where I could find the lacroose boots in Fairbanks or Anchorage? Also do you know what weight is for a pair? I'm also considering the neos hip boots they slip over boots and are 5 lbs any comparisons between the two would be appreciatied.

                When B&J commercial in Anchorage gets their hip boots on the shelf, they carry Lacrosse. I was there last week they only had knee boots.

                  Sounds like Lacrosse is the ticket. Sometimes I need some hipboots rather than bust out the chestys

                    You can buy Lacrosse at Mountain View Sports in Anchorage.

                      sportsmans in wasilla has them i'd imagine anch store does as well.
                      best i ever used was the old cabela's ankle fit hippers, then they sent the boot contract to japan or something and came up with the "guide series" pieces of trash. worst hippers i've ever seen now. luckly i bought three pair of the old kind...still using the same pair 4 years later or whatever it is.

                        Sportsman's in Fairbanks has the Lacrosse ankle fit hip boots as well. Lacrosse also makes a conditioner to protect the rubber during storage. Sportsman's did not have the conditioner, but I found some over at Frontier Outfitter's. Frontier had the neo hip boots as well, but the Lacrosse boots appear more durable (wall thickness) and less expensive.

                          During a search for hip boots I found this thread, decided to look up reviews on the Lacrosse ankle fit and found them to be leaning toward mostly negative comments based on their usefulness in Alaska for hunting..... Thought I'd share.

                            Tim,
                            I've been using the Neos River trekker for two years... I'll never go back to a heavy rubber hipper ever.

                            The Neos are not ideal for standing in water for hours on end like you might while fishing but they are great for walking through boggy areas and stream crossings. Very easy to get on and off as the terrain changes. I hate hiking in rubber boots of any kind, with the trekkers I can hike in my hiking boots and put on the waders when I get to water or swamps.

                              Your post is on the Cabela's brand, last i checked cabela's didn't carry the ankle fit LaCross hippers. These are the same one BRWNBR mentions on.
