Muck Boots – Woody Sport Side Zip Boots

(4/15/11) The review for the Woody Sport Side Zip hunting boots was left by Tom F. from Clifton Park, New York. Thanks Tom for another great review.

Outdoorsman Review:

After replacing my field and Stream water proof rubber hunting boots every year or so due to the cracking plastic from wear and storage I decided to try a new brand. I bought a pair of Muck Boots Woody sport side zip. After many months of wearing through snow, water, woods, and brush these boots show no sign of wear. I love them.

The sole and support provides for ample comfort for long hikes. They are warm in cold weather and breath well in the spring warmth. I have nothing but good things to say about these boots. The best part of these boots is the side zipper. This allows for you to slip the boot on over warm socks and pants without needing help from from your hunting buddy. All while still remaining completely waterproof. These boots are great for cold weather hunting or for spring 3D shooting where the ground is wet.

The quality and comfort of these boots are great. A++++. great boots.

Are you hunting in RedHead’s® Trailblazer Bone-Dry® waterproof hunting boots? If you have a pair of these boots then let us know if you like them by leaving a comment below.

(4/12/11) The review for the Trailblazer boots was left by me; Doug Snyder,  from the Southern California area. Don’t worry. I’m not eligible for the monthly giveaway as I’m  associated with OutdoorsmanReview. I just have a few new items that I’d like to review for everyone.

OutdoorsmanReview:

Let me start out by saying that I wear boots just about every day. I usually wear work boots and I beat them into the ground before I buy new ones. My decision to purchase the Trailblazer boots was based on the fact that not one pair of my work boots are waterproof and I thought that I needed some waterproof boots for a 3D archery shoot that our club was hosting back in March. All reports pointed to rain.

I was originally looking for waterproof work boots because (to me) camo hunting boots are ugly. I can stand other camo garb but for some reason I have a block on camo boots. After searching high and low for a pair of size 15 Caterpillar waterproof work boots I was left standing in BassPro. Not a bad place to be actually.

My options and time were/was running out. The only pair of large boots (size 14) that BP had was the Trailblazer Bone-Dry boot. I thought that I needed a 15 but after trying on the size 14 I thought they would work. This turned out to be a good decision as walking up and down rough terrain tends to make your feet slide around in oversized boots.

I made a quick decision that I would try these boots. At the time they were on sale for $69.97. This also was a factor in buying these boots as the list price was $99.99. Here is what I think about the Trailblazer boots by RedHead.

Waterproof-ness (If this is a word)

It turns out that the rain that we were expecting during our club’s shoot didn’t show up until after the shoot. This was good for the club but bad because I really wanted to test how water proof these boots were. I didn’t have to wait too long because last weekend it snowed about 4″ at our home range. By the time my son and I got to the range the sun was already melting the snow. This gave me the perfect opportunity to put these boots to the test. After an hour of walking through the slush, mud, and puddles I had formed an opinion about how waterproof the Trailblazers are. They kept my feet completely dry. Not one bit of water leaked through. I was impressed as I’ve had other boots that claimed to be waterproof but didn’t live up to the claim.

The one thing that I did notice was that they didn’t keep my feet completely warm. If you want toasty feet then I suggest that you wear a pair of wool socks. These boots are not insulated.

Comfort

I’ve had some good boots and bad boots when it comes to comfort. The Trailblazers rank up in the more comfortable range. They are a very light boot, cushion my feet pretty well, and (because they’re 6″ boots) they don’t bother my ankles as long as I don’t tie them too tight. I spent all day in these boots this last Sunday at another 3D shoot. 42 targets and my feet still felt great.

Conclusion

At $99.99 these are good light weight, waterproof hunting boots. At $69.97 they are great boots. The only complaint that I have about these boots is that RedHead could have made the tongue just a bit longer. When you tie the laces to the top they pop over the top of the tongue unless you purposely tie them below the top of the tongue. Not a huge problem and I’ve had this problem with other boots. All in all the Trailblazer is a pretty good boot.

Irish Setter SwampGhost Boots with ExoFlex Technology


(3/2/11) The review for the SwampGhost boots was left by Nick M. from Port Washington, WI. Thanks Nick.

Outdoorsman Review:

Where I hunt you need a tall rubber boot and I kept buying $60 boots that I thought would last but I was wrong, so I decided to pay the money for a nice pair. I bought these boots at the beginning of last season and wore them until the end.

Irish Setter Swampghost boots are a neoprene topped boot with 1000 grams of insulation and a good tread pattern with the mud claw rocker sole on the bottom. The 1000 grams of Thinsulate™ along with a couple pairs of socks will keep your feet warm though the winter months. In the early season a liner sock will keep your feet sweet free. 17″ tall boot keep your feet dry and scent free.

The ExoFlex technology makes for the best fitting and most comfortable rubber boot I have ever worn. I highly recommend this product to anyone that needs all season rubber boot.

Manufacturer’s Specs for the SwampGhost boot:

  • Height: 17 inch
  • Insulation: Non-Insulated
  • Construction: Cement
  • Sizes: E 7,8-12,13,14,15
