Railroad approved
This boot is a popular choice for railroad workers. As a freight train conductor I can find myself in remote areas having to deal with deep snow well into the dark hours. For the last eight years this one pair of boots have held up every time. The Outback is roomy enough for air circulation around the foot yet not loose as though you are wearing a sloppy boot. My feet stay warm without over heating even on the coldest nights. The construction is solid, and the tread unbelievably holds up to miles of railroad ballast being the number one killer of boot treads. I have never had to have these boots retreaded yet, and they still look relatively new after years of use. The Outback has been a lifesaver and are worth every cent I spent on them. This is a ten star boot. Conductor Noel Wilton Union Pacific RR

Great Boots
The first few times I wore these it was terrible. The circumference around my calf was too tight at the very top of the boot. The thick nature of the leather made it painful to wear them quite honestly, as there was no "give". I greased the crap out of them and wore in short intervals until the leather finally started to break in. I now consider them the best pac-boots money can buy. They fit about as well as my "regular" boots in terms of comfort/support, and are way more supportive and less sloppy than the Sorel Caribous they replaced. These boots are absolutely perfect if you have to actually do much hiking in conjunction with deep snow. The one down side was that the laces frayed pretty quickly. I replaced with 550 cord which has lasted much longer.

Outback
Great boots I have owned them for 5 years and used them for work as I lineman and for hunting. Very heavy duty not as warm as I would have hoped but, very supportive and water resistant. Great work/hunting boot if your moving around. Would definitely recommend and buy again

12" Outback
This Outback is the ultimate pack boot. It holds to your foot and ankle for stability whether hunting for elk in the high country or logging work in the valley bottom, still wearing the same pair since bought in NW Montana 2009.

My Review
Finish: This boot is very well constructed. The upper leather is VERY thick--thicker than that of any other boot I own (Meindl, Red Wing, Lacrosse). Everthing seems to be triple stitched. The tops of the boots are trimmed with rolled leather. The tongue is a thinner quality leather. The tongue is sewn to the uppers about 2/3rds of the way up. The extra ankle support is made of the same thick leather as the rest of he the uppers. The lowers are a thick rubber. It appears greenish in the photo, but mine are brown. Otherwise, they are exactly as they appear in the photo. The rubber seems very durable. Inside the rubber lowers are lined with a cotton cloth. Insoles = essentially none. The soles appear to be constructed of an upper layer, a fore-foot tread as pictured that is glued and tacked in place. The heel is glued and tacked in place as well. Deep treads as pictured. The rubber of the soles seems to be very high quality. Laces are very long and standard braided nylon. The boots come with 200g Thinsulate liners. Fit and Sizing: Definitely order one whole size up from your usual. Fit perfectly. Plenty of room in toe-box. No heel slippage. I have the 12" boots. My inseam is 34". These come to mid-calf. Perfect for what I wanted. Wear: TBD. Have worn them for 3 hours in 15F weather at slow pace on even terrain. Very comfortable and very warm. I'm going to order felt insoles and the 400g liners for these in anticipation of much cooler weather. I treated these with Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP. They soaked up about 2/3rds of the 8oz. jar in the first treatment. As expected the leather is much darker now. I expect they will need at least one more treatment before they will be reliably waterproofed. Overall, FANTASTIC boots. Worth every cent! I'm expecting a couple decades of use out of these.

Great hunting boots
Bought these boots for deer hunts in Massachusetts. We are anywhere from swamp to mountains to salt marshes. These boots kept my feet dry all day and also warm. Great ankle support and traction as well. Put over 35 miles on this week hunting straight out of the box. My feet didnt hurt at all and no blisters. Way better than the neoprene rubber hunting boots I used to wear. I would buy another pair of these in a heartbeat
