Cool New Prodcuts from MuckBoots Online

Dennis Steele

Recommended Posts

I recently received a couple cool products from Muck boots online to test out, that I think guys might find use full.I was excited to see them as a sponsor of FM. I already had heard of how good Muckboots are.I was a professional race horse groom a few years back and they are very popular with the horsemen crowd, and always thought they would be great product for the sportsman, so I asked if I could try some of their products.

The first is a pair of Muck Boots.

I already had heard of how good Muckboots are. I was a professional race horse groom a few years back and they are very popular with the horsemen crowd, and always thought they would be great product for the sportsman.
I got the Muckmaster boots. They are over the calf height and found them to be nice for wading along the shore and launching the boat at the muddy access I deal with along the MN River. The tread pattern gives you great traction yet does not get clogged up with mud .When I push my boat out from the muddy shore a few sloshes back and forth in the water clears the mud right off. I really like that. Its no fun fishing in a boat that has mud all over the floor. I can deal with a little fish slime. grin.gif The thing I like about them the most is they are really comfortable, unlike the old rubber boots I have . They have a cushy insole that is kind of springy and easy to walk in. A guy would have no problem walking all day in these boots. All though they are designed to be warm, my feet did not get too hot in the all rubber and neoprene construction. My feet sweat a lot and was impressed that the airmesh lining kept my feet from getting soaked with sweat. They are made from a neoprene fabric with real rubber 3/4 of the way up the boot .I think these will be very durable. I scrubbed the out side on some rock to see how they would hold up and if the soles would wear easily. It looks like they will hold up well as it didn’t mark up the rubber nor did the neoprene get snagged.
I believe these tough and very comfortable boots are going to be a hit with the outdoors man.

I also received a Bug Off jacket.

The mosquitos are not in full force yet but I think that this jacket with a fully enclose able hood will be very effective against those annoying little blood suckers. I am looking forward to putting it to a real test in the comming weeks. In the Mn River bottom where I fish the skeeters are very thick. Remember that Off commercial from the 70's with the guy in the tent full of skeeters? There is that many and your not in a tent!!With all the rain we have had in the past week I am sure they will be out in full force soon.
I never liked using bug spray as it makes my skin feel hot. The BugOff jacket has a very fine mesh that will keep the bugs out yet will still allow air in and out so you can stay cool on those hot nights .Its very loose fitting and does not stick to your skin,so I think it will do a great job keeping those pests off. Come on skeeters, do your best! smile.gif

I have my eye on the Arctic Sport boot.
These would be sweet for ice fishing. especially in slushy conditions.

The Arctic Sport™ offers a comfort range between 40º F and -40º F. 100% waterproof for extreme-conditions. 16" high to keep the snow out, rugged traction tread to keep you on your feet, and premium fleece plus our unique breathable Airmesh™ lining to keep warmth in.

They remind me of the boots I used to wear as a kid when I was cleaning the barn. They sound like an excellent idea for any sportsman. Would be great for hunting too if you happen to be in a low lying marshy area. Dennis did you find that they gripped real well in muddy, slippery conditions? I definitely plan on getting a pair.

I was at L&M in Cloquet last week and tried on a pair of the boots. I could not believe how comfortable light weight and flexable they are. The soles are strong enough for rocky shore fishing on the big pond as well as the mud.
I pondered it enough, I am getting a pair this weekend. The camp shoes are another possible purchase for me before summer ends.
