ROCKY Rattler Zip Snake GORE-TEX Boots for Men
Don't buy zipper
This is the third pair of Rocky snake boots I've owned. The first and second were not the zipper model. The first and second pair started to leak after about two years. The sole on the first started to break up after about 2 1/2 years. I've had the third pair about 6 months now and they are starting to leak. If you have large calves the zipper will give you problems. It doesn't stay up like it should even with the velcro closed. I still have to lace and unlace the boot. I should have bouight the lace up. I am returning mine and get lace ups. Why may you ask am I getting another pair? They are some of the most comfortable boots I've owned and are snake proof. That's the main reason I wear them. I am unhappy with the lenght of time they stay waterproof though.

Worst constructed boot I have ever worn. I wore the boots one time for about 3 hours and the material where the boot and zipper meet frayed on the right boot and actually seperated leaving a gapping hole on the left boot. I was walking through a grown up field with brush and briers but I expect more from Rocky. If these boots can't hold up to brush and briars, I would not want to encounter a snake while wearing them. They will be going back to bass pro shops and I will not be purchasing another product made by Rocky.

I WAS WORRIED ABOUT PURCHASING THESE BOOTS B/C OF THE "WATERFROOF" ISSUE, BUT THESE BOOTS ARE WATERPROOF. LOOK ON THE INSIDE OF THE BOOT AND YOU CAN SEE THE KHAKI GORETEX LINING STOP. THESE BOOTS HAVE A VERY COMFORTABLE FIT, MUCH LIKE A TENNIS SHOE AND ARE LIGHTWEIGHT. FOR AN UNINSULATED BOOT THEY ARE SURPRISINGLY WARM!! THE ONLY COMPLAINT IS I WISH THEY CAME IN AN INSULATED VERSION ALSO. ALL IN ALL, THESE BOOTS ARE VERY COMFORTABLE AND WATERPROOF UP TO THE POINT I PREVIOUSLY STATED, AGAIN VERY COMFORTABLE!!!!

These are good boots.But the break in period was a little longer than I liked.After about four days of tough huntin,climbing ridges and crossing wet hay fields and creeks, they came around pretty good. the zip up part is nice but you have to get the laces right otherwise zipping them up a second time is impossible without loosening the laces. Just takes a little tweaking. I thought on one day they were leaking but it just sweat as it did get up to almost 80 that morning. Other than that these are good boots.
