Not like they used to be
This was my 5th pair of Big Chiefs over many years. The first 4 pairs were excellent hip boots. This pair is not. The right boot was ok. The left seemed to be one size too small and actually had a 1/8th inch hole molded into the boot foot from the factory. Manufacturing standards have been lowered and QC is non-existent. Too bad.
Lacrosse Big Chief Hip Boots
I purchased the Lacrosse Big Chief non-insulated hip boots and tried them out on a 4 mile hike the first weekend through swamps and flatland brush. The next week I tried them out on a 15 mile hike, 2000 vertical feet up, 2000 vertical feet down. With Sock liners plus wool socks, my feet did not get any blisters. It was 45 degrees out and I sweated enough to get my pants and socks damp. I got one chafing at my knee. I was wearing rain pants over the hip boots so that the boots would not fill up with water. Excellent grip around the ankle, no blisters on a long 15 mile hike, fairly quiet. Excellent buy
