    THE GOOD
    You can put these babies in your will ’cause they’ll out live you. They are waterproof like a boat and rediculously rugged.

    THE BAD
    The Mountain Light II is heavy and expensive (made in the U.S.A. adds a premium). It also needs some break-in time. The lining is durable but could be more comfortable.

    THE FIT & COMFORT
    This a narrow width boot with a straight foot design. The leather is supple but the design is still and solid and you might want to also get an insert.

    THE PRICE
    List price – $240.00
    Average price – $224.95

    OTHER NOTES
    This boot has a copy cat that is $80 cheaper and a tad bit better. It’s the Cabela’s Big Sky.

    Available Sizes: Men’s 7-12, 13, 14, 15
