    I just used gortex boots. Next time I will bring gaiters to keep my pants dry and the top of my socks. My buddy had a set of wiggys; crossed water and fished with them. Not for hiking in. Also bring a patch kit; they don't like alders!

    Good luck!

    i bought a pair of those cabelas tundra boots, the concept is really good but they only come in whole sizes and the 11 is too small and the 12 is huge, i would like to use my kenetrek gators and kenetrex boots since they are so comfortable but as looking at those socks that go underneath the boots but if i wanted to use my boots later with out the water socks my boots are going to be soaking wet. I will be hunting in kotzebue so dont know how deep the streams will be. i just want to be comfortabel when hunting and not have feet that hurt. What are your thoughts?

    What type of hunt are you doing. Another idea is Simms waders with camo top if weight is not an issue. An Alaskan friend only uses those when hunting from his raft.

    Me personally: I would want to hike in hip waders!

    Wouldn't the hip waders be hard on the ankles and get so hot, what brand of hip waders

    Hip boots are hot, I only used them for fishing. I hate hiking in them to far. Lacrosse ankle fit are the ones I use. Going to replace with Simms in the future

    Set the cabelas tundra boots back and got the slip over hip booty for quick stream crossings. Super light weight and packable. I decided that way so I can still wear my comfortable kenetrek with gators and if needed I will just slip the wig guys on real quick
