To Whom It May Concern:
I have done a lot of hunting in the Grand Tetons of WY and always had problems with slipping when walking the horses down steep slopes. I finally asked my guide how he managed to stay upright. He gave me a sales pitch on Schnee's Hunter II boot. So I called Schnee's and the sales person that I spoke to reassured me that her husband wears the Hunter II and he has had no problems while using them in the stirrup while on horseback. So with two endorsements for these boots I ordered them.
I finally took them out of the box at 4:30 AM while hunting at the Greys River Box Y Ranch. The weather was heavy rain with a chance of snow for the day. By 9:30AM the ground was completely white and the guide was cold while I was warm and dry in my new boots. I became a true believer in the boots when after walking up and down the slopes in 6" of fresh snow I did not slip or fall. I also used them this winter in Wisconsin while working outside and had no problems with slipping or cold feet. My only regret is that I bought the 13" instead of 16", our first snow storm this past winter exceeded that.
Thank you for a really great product to work and play in. At my age, comfort and dependability is greatly appreciated.
