Cabelas polar cap pac boots

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone own these boots? know anything about them ? I noticed that they are rated to -100 degrees but it doesn't mention how much thinsulate(if any) there is . Are they comfortable?

Seabass77,

Haven't tried the Cabela boots but I sure recommend the LaCrosse Ice King boots. All I wear ice fishing or sledding are some white cotton socks and my feet are warm all day. They are a little on the heavy side but VERY warm and durable.

I second the opinion on Lacrosse boots. Have always had a problem with my feet getting cold. Bought Lacrosse Snow Kings last year (-140 rating). Very comfortable, very warm. Only complaint is that I can't drive with them on. Too big to operate pedals on my manual tranny.

Last year at the Ice Fishing show in St. Paul there were about 3 booths with really cheap clearance boots, but they sold out by mid-day Saturday so get there early.

Jeff King told me he would wear them even if Cabela's was not his sponsor. Jeff is a three time Iditarod winner (finished 3rd last year). I've had several opportunities to talk with him and have learned some good stuff for living in Minnesota during winter.

About Alaska he said, "You don't learn from your mistakes, you die by them."

Clayton,
I may be mistaken but I think you are talking about the trans alaskan III's...

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
