My previous pair of pac boots was a Sorrel-type boot. The rubber bottoms cracked and I needed new boots. I considered a few brands, such as Schnee’s and Kenetrek, for new pac boots. However, I chose the Hoffman Felt Voyagers with regular soles. I was attracted by the crack resistant rubber bottoms, sealed seams, reinforced toe cap, the price, and also the fact they are US-made. I ordered them in December and have worn them on almost a daily basis for the past few months. I cannot speak to Schnee’s or Kenetrek pac boots, but these Felt Voyagers are a great product. They worked out very well for forestry, logging, and a general cold weather boot. They provide excellent ankle support for me while out walking in the woods on uneven terrain or logs. I was curious how the regular sole would work and it has provided good traction. The boots are also very comfortable to walk in. These are not like the Sorrel-type pac boot where you would flounder. My feet do not ache at the end of a day of working in the woods. At the end of an eight hour day, there was some dampness inside but no more than expected from any rubber-bottomed boot (which traps the sweat from escaping). I did not purchase an additional pair of liners so I made sure to pull the liners out of the boots every evening and dry both the liners and boots. I had originally ordered a size 10 (I am a size 10 1/2), per Hoffman’s instructions, but they were too small so I exchanged them for a size 11 which has been a great fit. Both my wife and I have mentioned we are glad I invested the money in these boots. These are a five star product.
