RE:Danner Wading Boots
I've never their wading boots, but Danner's are absolutely the best light hiking/hunting boots I've ever used. I'm on my third pair.
For those of you in the Pacific Northwest, the Danner outlet in Portland is worth checking out. It's been a while since I was there (maybe 7 years - yikes!), but they used to have lots of cosmetic seconds for half off.
