Woody Armor Hunting Boots (Muck Boots Online): Review


Not long ago, I was given the chance to try out a pair of Woody Armor® Premium Hunting Boots from Muck Boots Online.

I'm a Land Surveyor and often spend my days mired in mud and muck, in swamps and fields, woodlands, marshes -- you name it, I've been there.
Of course, I need work boots that work with me. The Woody Armor® Premium Hunting Boot fits my needs perfectly. It's a must to have a boot that you can trust not to fail. They have to protect your feet from extreme cold and snake-bites, they must keep your feet dry and they must be durable.

So far, I've worn them in the swamps of Ebenezer Creek -- that's a fresh water creek.
The inside stayed dry until I went in over the tops. When I got back to the truck, I cleaned them by dumping the water out and rinsing them with cold, fresh water.
They dried fast... overnight. Next morning, the boots were clean and dry and ready for Day 2.



Later in the week, I was in knee-deep mud at the canal site. The Woody Armor boots stayed dry -- right up until I hit the ditch and went in up to my thighs.

Mud and gravel filled the inside of the boots. So, when I got back home, I had to literally take the garden hose to them to clean them out.
They cleaned up quick. There was no damage to the inside lining at all. They took a bit longer to dry that time. A full day. But that's fine. Other boots I've had took a lot longer than that and didn't fare nearly as well.

While using these boots, I discovered that the insulation inside does NOT hold odors. Thank Heaven. Nothing is worse than stinky boots.
The insoles are easily removed and fit back in easily. After all that I put them through, there were no changes to the insole -- they held up remarkably well.
Even tramping through the mud, I had great traction. The boots didn't try to "pull off". Stability, traction... all the hallmarks of a darn good work boot.

I'm impressed. I highly recommend these Woody Armor® Premium Hunting Boots for any and all outdoor needs. They aren't just for hunting -- as this Land Surveyor will attest.
