Looking at Danner Pronghorn 1000gr insulated boots. Anyone wear these if so how are they? Any and all input is welcomed.

I just bought a pair of Rocky Buckstalkers.

100% rubber, 18" high.Zippered on the inside,1,000 grm Thinsulate.

VERY, comfy footbed, VERY. I thought they'd be a bit warmer than my old Rocky's (400 grm) but not so. Don't get me wrong, my feet do NOT get as cold by any means. Just thought they'd be "warmer". Maybe I had unreal expectations?!

I WOULD recommend these boots. $100 is what I gave for them.

I am on my second pair of Danner's. First pair were awesome and lasted manyyears with no troubles.2nd areDannerCanadian's 800 gram/all leather, gortex bootie and rubber sole. Newest pair are2 years old, super comfortable-light for all leather, great gripping sole, warm and dry. Couldn't be happier. Never tried Pronghorns but have heard good reviews.

I also have Red Wing "Irish Setters" Stalkers(i believe) 800 grams/rubber sole/light weight/gortex they have served me very well for6 years as my winter/hunting boot.No leaksand for a boot that cost me 100 bucks I also couldn't be happier.

I orgered the Prongorns from Cabelas & walked around in them around the house for a while - SUPER comfortable, but that insulation is NOT in the toe cap. It's in the sides. I spoke to a guy at Gander Mountain who agreed, a lot of customers complain about that. I put a heat pad in my old Vasque hiking boots, rubbed some doe urine into the leather & had a buck grazing within 10 yards of me. And I was on the ground.
