Default Rubber Boots or Leather/Cordura Boots?

I am getting ready to buy a new pair of hunting boots. I was stuck between 2 different ones and I couldnt decide. One is a pair of all rubber boots in realtree hardwoods pattern w/1200 Grm Thinsulate in them, supposedly scent-free. These are sold at Bass Pro. The other pair is a pair of Guide Gear boots out of the
Sportsmansguide catalog. They are leather/cordura, waterproof with a sympatex scentmask lining to block scent. They have 1,000 Grm Thinsulate in them. I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge of these 2 or similiar boots? does anyone know anything about sympatex w/scentmask? The leather boots are about $10 cheaper than the rubber boots? I was wondering which would be the best for scent-proof ?

Try the Lacrosse Alpha Series Rubber/neoprene composites. WARM, extremely lightweight and very comfortable. Best rubber boots I ever bought.

all rubber boots are scent free.. but your cordura/leather are going to collect whatever scent it is around I think.. i would go with the rubber.. Im about to buy the lacrosse burly' s also

I have Rocky Snake Boots made with Cordura, and I love them......There is no way a rubber boot can be as comfortable and breathable as Cordura

I wear Guide Gear Carnivore 1,000s , Cordura with no leather trim , and love ' em . Rubber may not pick up smells , but it has a smell of it' s own that ain' t natural in the woods . Keeping your boots clean and using a good cover scent on them will make almost any boot serviceable . Personally , I think rubber boots are overrated , my Carnivores work just fine . All leather is something I avoid , once they' re contaminated they' re very hard to deodorize .

Rubber boots are a good choice, but I think some
of the newer boots on the market, with ' scent
containing' material, are a better choice. I believe
some your scent " puffs" out the top of the rubber
boots, aside from the fact that they make my feet
sweat too much....which is never a good
thing[:@].

Personaly, the majority of the time I wear Cabela' s
800 gram " Bruin" with Supprescent, though I do
own 3 pair of Lacrosse " Burly' s" .
