Bravo to Kenetrek on a boot made for women who traverse rugged terrain in all seasons. Allowing this hunting gal the ability to go anywhere the hunt demands in comfort. The first time I wore my Kenetrek was during spring bear hunting and the Montana weather conditions challenged my boot but my feet remained blister free and comfy from the beginning.
- The open tread pattern works well for all types of terrain and conditions. I’ve worn them in snow, mud, rocks, winter runoff and on dry ground and the performance is like no other boot that has accompanied my feet into the hills.
- Available insulated with 400-grams of Thinsulate giving them Insulation for colder weather conditions without the bulk which is an important factor for me.
- Also available in non-insulated for warmer weather conditions. These aren’t in my closet yet but they are next on my “wish list”.
- Water proof making them great for snow and crossing mountain creeks.
- No seams down the tongue of the boot increasing abrasion resistance and making the boots even more waterproof!
- Breathable membrane also aids in keeping my feet dry and warm, allowing my feet to be happy. (oh yeah)
- Extra padded soft collars give comfort and all day ankle support which is a personal “must have” for rocky terrain.
- Heavy duty midsoles provide extra support while I weave my way across uneven ground.
- Traction teeth at the heel and toe give the Mountain Extreme Boots extra grip for going up and down hills while perimeter side lugs provide grip when side-hilling.
- Reinforced rubber sole guards give extra protection against rock abrasion great in Mountain goat and Big Horn sheep country.
- The Mountain Extreme 400 is insulated and isn’t the boot that I select for my early September bow hunts, choosing the right equipment tailored to each hunt is key. This isn’t actually a full on “Con” in my opinion, because I whole heartedly love my boots and this is the only time of year I don’t wear them based on my type of hunting.
