The key to powering through the obstacles of a river system is great footing. The rugged, responsive Guide BOA Boot stacks agility and stability in your favor with maximum Vibram traction and an exacting BOA-lacing system fit.
I have been a guide in the past and have owned several boots and these are by far the best I’ve owned. Very comfortable footbed. Extremely easy on and off. Not too heavy and give great support and protection!
I gave it a 4 because I haven't used this boot in the field yet but I've tried it on. It is so easy to slip into. The twist lace up system is a lifesaver. I'm 72 and find it difficult to put on cumbersome boots then hike your leg up to lace them up the traditional way. With these you just turn the dial and they lace up as tight as you want. Then just lift up on the dial and they are unlaced. Perfect for me.
