I bought a pair of Cabella's Outfitter series boots for my trip to Montana this year, and they worked out great! The "word" is that they are made by Danner...I don't know about that, but I know they kept my feet warm and dry in temps down to 17 below zero. Also, they felt broken in already the first time I put them on. They have the "air bob" or "bob cat" sole on them, and traction was great. The only problem was when it got REALLY cold, the soles got stiff and wouldn't bend to clean themselves out. But this was only when it got below zero. These were the 11-inch tall boots with 1000 gr of Thinsulite. Best boots I ever bought. By the way, the guide I was with recommended LL Bean pacs with the "chain tread" for the extreme cold. Just thought I 'd pass along a note on some good boots.
