I just wanted to comment on Muck boots. I bought a pair last year in March. They are the most comfortable boots and warmest boots I have ever worn. I put them to the test last year and wore them every chance I could. I mean I tried to wear them out. I had caught them on barbed wire and didn't realize it and kept right on yanking my foot to get free thinking I was just hung on a vine and I could pull it loose. Well the barbed wire actually ripped the rubber part of the boot. But the rip didn't puncher the lining and did not cause the boots to leak. I also snagged a bit of the upper portion on something else, I think it was thorny trees. Still the boots did not leak. But since I had a year warranty, I called Norcross (the makers of Muck Boots) and told them that the boots had developed some holes. She gave me a number to the distributor. I called them and they said take them back where I bought them from. The problem there was, it is a 5 hour drive and told her that. She put me on hold. She got back on the phone ask for my name and address and said since these were not normal circumstances that they would just send me a new pair. When I ask if I had to return the other boots, she replied and said no. So now I have two pair of boots and will wear the year old ones until I have completely worn them out. I just can't say enough about how much I love these boots and how good the manufacture is. Everyone should have a pair!
