Question TBH Braintrust: Hip Boot Search

Hey Guys/Gals,
Can someone help me find these boots? Leaving for Alaska hunt in two weeks. The outfitter got his from Cabela's (not sure when) but I don't see them. The code in his boots are 110771515-BRN......or close to that! The hip boots are rubber knee high (ankle fit), but they are mesh up to the hips. I don't care if they are not Cabelas but I cant find these anywhere on Amazon, Cabelas, Bass pro, Academy, etc.

Just another option for you. When I hunt AK I use both stockingfoot waders and hippers. You wear wading boots over the stocking feet of both. I believe I got my stockingfoot hippers from Fish USA. Made by Frogg Toggs and they are amazingly tough and lightweight. I can wear the hippers all day long and feel like you are just wearing the wading boots. Just a suggestion.

If you don't need insulated then Lacrosse boots are as comfortable as tennis shoes to me.

Yep, looking at that route now. Seems nobody has a product that actually meets ANKLE FIT, RUBBER TO KNEE, and then MESH ABOVE THE KNEE all while being lightweight.

Yessir!!! I am taking a hog leg...….500 Casul pistol. The outfitter will be carrying some type of big bore brush rifle and also a shotgun 24/7.

Exactly, my first trip in the mid 90's I was absoulutely miserable with full rubber hip boots. Walking all day over muskeg aint no joke. This trip we will be crossing rivers and streams constantly on all day hunts, so he is recommending the uppers be mesh and ankle fit. I will check out REI today but if nothing there I will pull the trigger on those Georgia Hip Boots above.

I would get stocking foot waders and some boots to fit. hip-high simms did the trick for me. slip on boots don't make for great hikers. Good luck. Stay safe and have fun.

I bow hunted Moose in Alaska, took a 44 mag with 300 gr Long hammerheads for emergency. My brother brought his 357 mag....guide told him he should file off the front sight on it, he asked why, guide said that it wouldn't hurt as bad when the bear shoved it up his....

Daggumitt, I searched all the suggestions plus others over the last few days. I ordered the Georgia boots yesterday. I guess if they suck I can get yours from Orvis or something local.
