Have been needing/wanting a new pair of upland boots, thanks for the heads-up.  Reviews seem pretty good. 

They're back-ordered for a week but you won't find me bird hunting during deer gun season anyway.

Bought a pair in October of last year and they were waterproof until yesterday, after about an hour my left foot was completely drenched ! Had to come back to the truck and change into my wellingtons.

They were the worst boots I ever bought. Bought some Irish setters now I'm happy.

Picked up a pair with the special.  Ordered last week and arrived yesterday.

 

For a $100 boot, I think they are very tough to beat.  Right now I have 5 sets of the pronghorns.  Oldest pair, 1200 gram is going on 10+ years and still waterproof.  To be honest, those don't see much use.  I have a pair that is about 7 or 8 years old and broke in just perfect, but do leak.  Another set at 4 years, still holding strong and another at 3 still good.  But I know for the miles I put on, both these pair are on borrowed time.  So now a new pair for $100 - that is a good buy in my world. 

 

I oil often, dry out with air circulation and newspaper (try not to use heat) and rotate so each pair will have a down day if possible during the heat of hunting season.

They're now at $149. I'm pulling the trigger.

I ordered two pair to make sure I got the right size, ended up keeping the 13EE which I'm wearing with a heel/arch insert and a heavy pair of socks.  I've had them out for two afternoon hunts and they were comfortable right out of the box.  At 99 bucks I probably should have bought a back up pair.
