I realize there may be skeptics out there who think that the word “waterproof” almost seems too good to be true. Well, your answer is in this video. Mark Melotik, the managing editor of Bow Hunting World Magazine ran a test on eight pairs of boots that are commonly advertised as “waterproof.” To simulate the test, Mark wore a dry sock, put on the boot, and submerged his foot in a bucket filled with six inches of water. It was a pass/fail test, meaning, if he sock got wet at all, that boot failed the test. Mark tested the following boots:

  • Irish Setter – Rutmaster
  • Rocky Muddsox
  • Bogs Bowman
  • Danner Pronghorn GTX
  • LaCrosse 4XBurly
  • Muckboot Artic Pro
  • Under Armor H-A-W
  • Red Head RCT 9”

The results of the test . . . all eight boots passed. So, do yourself a favor and hunt down any of these waterproof boots. You’ll be glad you did the next time you have to walk through water.
