    Lightweight Hunting Boots?

    I need to purchase a pair of light weight hunting boots. I've been wearing a pair of Rocky boots for a few years now, but they are no longer water proof. I prefer something that is uninsulated with a soft sole.

    I've been looking at the following boots: Danner Pronghorn GTX, Danner Jackal II GTX, Kenetrek Hardscrabble Hiker, Hanwag Banks GTX and Hanwag Cheyenne GTX.

    Any thoughts or comments about the above boots, or another I haven't listed, is much appreciated.

    I myself am in the same boat, I'm torn between the Pronghorn & the Under Armour Ridge Reaper. I was impressed with how light the UA boot is. Have you checked that out?

    I have not looked at the Under Armour boot. Guess I'd better add another to the list.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    I have the Danner Pronghorn and it is a great boot. Very comfortable from the getgo.

    Hey no problem, So far I am pretty impressed with my other UA gear and I haven't really heard anything bad about the boots yet, I am pretty sure its their first boot so i am guessing there will be a few things that get changed for next years models but so far they look/feel to be a quality product.

    Some of the above mentioned are not very (light weight).

    Try the Lowa Renegade. I've had good luck with those.

    I tried on some UA Speed Freaks this weekend they felt good and were true to size, but didn't buy them.

    Danner Jackel II for me. Love em. Light weight and they cling to the rocks really well. I think the new Danner Pronghorns will be my next pair of boots but not for the early season. Good luck!

    Danner Pronghorn is by far the best boot I have ever hunted in. As long as they make them, I will be using them.
