ROCKY® 15'' Rattler Zip Snake GORE-TEX® Boots for Men
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.

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.

These boots are well worth the price. Very comfortable once they are broken in and they are really water proof. Don't stand in a deep puddle or you will get damp but thats your fault not the boots. Very durable...have not been bitten by a snake but I feel very safe in these boots. These are also perfect for rabbit hunting when going thru thick thorns or brush and scouting for turkey signs in hard to reach places.

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.
