Rocky Boots?

9 posts in this topic

I currently received a pair or Rocky Blizzard Stalker boots with 1200grams of thinsulate as a gift. They are to replace a pair of older Rocky extreme cold winter boots with the removable liners. Does anyone have the Blizzard Stalkers, and would they be considered good for ice fishing, sitting in the deer stand, snowmobiling etc? They seem more like great cold weather "walking" boots, but not as great for sitting on a frozen lake for a long period of time. Anyone have any insight as to the warmth of these boots?

Thanks

I have the same pair, and my toes got cold on deer opener. I was warmer in my 400 gr. insulate Danner pronghorns. 1200 gr's of thinsulate, I don't believe it.....but that is just my opinion

I've got a pair of Rocky 1000 gram Ice Stalkers that are around 5-6 years old and haven't had any problems getting cold. You could try using a rubber mat or something to keep your feet off of the ice. Also, good socks no matter what boots.

I can't speak on the Blizzard Stalkers though.

I have a pair. Takes a bit to get used to the idea of no liners. I got mine big enough for a warm pair of socks. Then put a good insole liner. @nd winter with them and no complaints.

I have some older 800gm Rocky's that I have been happy with. Wear good wool socks no matter what boot you buy, and buy a size bigger to give you room to wear them. Cutting off you foot circulation kind of defeats the purpose.

ripstick,

That's one thing that is hard for me to grasp...no liners. Just seems like leather and rubber won't do the job without really good socks. Currently I just wear usual cotton socks with no issues. I'd just keep the old boots I have, but the duct tape keep peeling off..ha. I'm thinking of checking out the Ice Kings or something along those lines, not quite sure yet

You can't go wrong with the Ice Kings, I love mine for sitting in my ice fishing shack.

Anybody have or hear much about the Lacrosse Alpha Ice Man boots? A lot lighter weight than the Ice Kings, but still look to be plenty warm.

I've got the same Blizzard Stalkers and have yet to get cold feet ice fishing or deer hunting. I usually don't wear them snowmobiling because they are too wide to fit comfortably on my running boards but the few times I have my feet have been more than warm. Good boots.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
