This is my third pair of Patagonia boots and I sure do think they are the best. Light and very easy ot put on and take off. I haven't used these yet but based on the others I have used these will last a long time. My first pair lasted 8 years with 50+ days use each year. I purchased these for when my other boots run out, but that may be 6 years from now.

These are the lightest most supportive boot I have worn. Its my 3rd pair of Patagonias! We dont have an issue with whirling disease or other waterborn fish killers where I fish so I have no problem with felt soles. When a manufacture states they have a rubber soled bood that grips like felt it is a flat out LIE! Rubber does not compare! (unless outfitted with studs) I do where rubber with studs when snow is present. There are good reasons to phase out felt in areas where disease is present but one bad slip and you get hurt. Great boots Half the weight of Simms wading boots.

I have worn these boots for over a year now and at this price you can't pass them up. They have a very stable feel and are very durable. I have never felt uneasy in these felt soled boots. They have a wide stable base with a sole that has a piece of kevlar (I think) that will keep you from getting stone bruisesTthe design of the fold out tongue is genius. You can fold it forward and put your stocking foot bootie into the boot easily with no struggles. However! I do not endorse the supposed grippy rubber sole version of this boot at all. They are far to slippery for my tail waters and probably yours.
Other than that a quality boot with good old fashioned felt!! If it's not broke don't mess with it. if you are still able to wear felt in your streams and rivers then feel good about ordering. Tight lines
