Danner boots are some of the best boots you can get and these will meet your Danner expectations. The one thing that I don't like about these boots is that the tongue of the boots are cut lower on the sides which can allow water in if you walk through water over 6" deep. I'm thinking they did this to make it easier to get the boots on. But when you have boots that are 8" tall, it would be nice to be able to walk through 8" of water. They are waterproof and very comfortable. Although they did take a while to break in. This is not a pair you want to take hunting the first time you put them on. This is a great pair of boots and I am planning to purchase the 1000 gram insulated version as soon as I can.
