Gear Review: Rocky Peakstalker Boots

Rocky-BootMy first sheep hunt into the eastern slope of the Rockies pushes the clock back over 40 years and the boots I used all but ruined that hunt. They offered no support, the all but flat soles were constantly slipping on the rocky terrain and as soon as they got wet they got sloppy and I developed blisters in no time. I was barely able to get back out of the mountains.

Thankfully, no longer do those of us who seek lofty vistas and the high country game they offer need to even consider boots that are better suited to the flat lands than a mountain slope. Rocky offers just the remedy for hunting these high and rugged regions with the introduction this year of their PeakStalker boot. They are as tough as any boot Rocky has made. They are built for sheep and goat hunters out of full grain leather, 900D Nylon with a high abrasion mudguard, an extra thick TPC lasting board, waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX fabric, 400 to 800 grams of Thinsulate Ultra Insulation and an aggressive Vibram trek S187 compound outsole that is lightweight, flexible and keeps a firm grip on nasty terrain. They are available in brown or brown/Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity and in two styles, a six-inch and a nine-inch lace-up. They range in a MSRP from $240 to $270.
