Rated 4 out of 5 by Grousegunner007 Kangaroo Upland Boots
This is the second pair I have had. The boots wear well, and are surprisingly waterproof. They have held up well in various upland terrain from heavy brush to grassland prairies. I like the sole of this boot compared to the traditional bean boot, of which I believe the sole tread is not aggressive enough. My personal experience is that the size runs 1/2 to almost 1 size smaller than most. I purchased the wide (EE) boot and it does make it more comfortable. One drawback is you cant send them back for any needed work like boa lace repair or have the soles replaced. The boots hold up better than most. The BOA system tightens the boots around your entire foot very well. I have experienced numerous times that at the end of a long day of upland hunting, my buddies feet would be wet from stream crossings, wet fields, ect. and my feet would be dry. Well worth the money, I only wish they were American made. - My two cents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PhezChaser Excellent Boot
This is my second pair, they are excellent! I hunt hundreds of miles each year in 3 states chasing pheasants and I couldn't do it without them. Break-in is minimal and good to go right out of the box. The Boa Closure system allows easy adjustments throughout the day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Uplandguide1 Update of earlier review
Let me prefice this review with saying I still think these boots are the best out there, but I am on my 2nd. pair, and now the left boot is leaking AGAIN. I love these things and if there were something I could do to stop them from leaking I would, but I have tried a bunch of things, and my toes are still wet even walking through soaked grass, not standing water. I have a bad knee and tie boots are tough for me so these are perfect...............just wish I could get a pair I can get more than a year out of before they leak. I realize, I am in the boots more than the average hunter, but they still should not leak in one year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WvWild Great Fit with all day comfort
For over a year I have wanted to purchase these boots. The price has been the stopper. Several of the customers of the hunting lodge where I work have purchased them and have raved about the comfort, fit, and ease of on and off.
I broke down and spent the money! They were a perfect fit to my size ( better then any shoe purchased in the last few years). All day comfort, I have worn them every day. The lacing system allows for fine tuning as you go through the day. The are so easy to take off at the end of the day. Pull the button, push your leg forward and slide your foot out without a tug.

Rated 2 out of 5 by uplandjoe Don't last
Like many of the reviews these boots have some great positives. I love the closure system. Comfortable right out of the box but they don't last. I did not get two hunting seasons out of them. I'm an upland hunter so lots of cover that pulls on your boots. Like others the finger pulls on the back of the boots did not last a year and tore through. The stitching on the boots also pulled apart in year two making the boots virtually useless as they are completely coming apart at the seams. All my hunting boots eventually wear out but for the price of these I would hope you can get more than two seasons out of them. I'm going back to all leather boots. I'm going to miss that closure system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Almax Very Comfortable Hunting Boots
I'm very satisfied with these boots. I purchased them for quail hunting. The fit was almost spot on for me (11.5 wide), perhaps a tiny bit on the small side, but I only wear light weight wool socks with them so not an issue at all. Others may want to move up a half size if wearing medium or heavy socks. I wore them on the last three quail hunts of the year. Each hunt we walked an average of five miles. They held up well. The best attributes were their comfort and being lightweight. I really like the BOA system for the ease of putting them on and taking them off. No issues with the system opening during any of my hunts. Very little break-in required. I recommend these boots if you are looking for a lightweight, comfortable, and functional hunting boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirdHunter01 Nice boot, love the BOA closure system
I like the closure system on this boot. They did require a short break-in period. Great boot for upland hunting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SSGTscott Really nice boot
I got these late in the winter season so haven't had alot of time in them but so far so good. They're very well made, fit great, look great and I love the boa enclosure system. I would order these again without a doubt.

I bought these as a gift for my nephew and he says, and I quote, "As a carpenter I am always looking for boots that are comfortable and durable. These boots offer both qualities and are good looking as well. The boa lace system is a very unique feature that I never knew existed. Just turn the dial until they are snug and pull out on the dial to remove your boot with ease. I am sold! These are my favorite pair of boots yet. Thanks L.L. Bean for another great product!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fredj Terrific boots
These boots are lightweight, waterproof and extremely comfortable...and the BOA closure system totally rocks! No more briers or twigs grabbing on to shoelaces and pulling them open.
I love 'em...best boots I've ever owned!
