ROCKY Rattler Zip Snake GORE-TEX Boots for Men
Pretty good to me
Bought these boots 5 or 6 yrs ago for turkey hunting, but they were so comfortable and waterproof that I used them for all warmer weather hunting. They finally started leaking this year. No zipper problems all this time, except when a little mud got in them. I want another pair, but am being careful due to some negative reviews and the tendency for Rocky to change manufacturers to lower thier cost. Got burned once due to them changing mfg on thier pack boots. All in all this pair of snake boots has been great for several years. They are a little high priced unless you can catch a sale AND B P still has your size.

I bought these a few years ago. They felt great and were light weight. I could walk many miles in these boots. I hunt the swamps of SE Georgia, and water proofing and snake proofing is a must. These leaked shortly after buying them. I tried coating them with the water proof spray but it didn't help. Bass Pro told me to contact Rocky...I did and they gave me the run around and then never got back to me. I realized I'd just have to live with having wet feet to have snake protection. The bottoms began falling off in less than a year. Rocky lost a customer for life. I'm going to buy the Red Head ones next time.

I normally do not leave reviews but had to on this one. I am an avid bow hunter and am in the woods a m inimum of 3 times a week hunting hogs or scouting new areas when not in deer season. I live in FL in hard core snake country. I have always used plain old rubber boots until I saw these on sale. I was a little reluctant to buy them but I am glad I did. These are the BEST and lightest boots I have ever owned!! You cannot even tel they are snake proof. Waterproof, cammo, snake proof, what more can you ask for. The zipper is nice on the side. Just fit them the way you like with the laces and doudle knot them. You will never have to tie a now agian. BUY THESE BOOTS IF YOU DONT OWN THEM ALREADY!

Received these boots for Christmas last year and after going out in them 3 times they started to separate at the soles(both boots). I sent them back and received replacement boots. After taking those out into the field 2 times the soles began to separate at the exact same area. This was a major disappointment because these boots are so comfortable and I wanted them to work out so bad. I am sending them back today for another brand. Hopefully in the future rocky will improve its quality because the price and the comfort of these boots is award winning if only they just didn’t fall apart!
