Customer questions and answers for CABELA'S Cabela's Pinnacle Boa® Extreme 800-Gram Boots

Question

I am impressed so far, the only worry i have how tight the boots will be on my ankle.

I've read a few reviews about them being too tight. But also read several of reviews that said there great. Any opinions? I'm a pretty large hunter (300 lbs). Also how are they for spending all day walking in snow/atv riding?

Buy a pair an extra size bigger. I wear a 10.5, width EE. The size 11 would not allow me to get my feet into the boots. However, size 11.5 allowed my feet to enter.
I have a pair of 15" Pinnacle snake boots, 400 grams. I wear them all day and they feel good at the end of the day.

They are pretty good as far as scent goes. I definitely recommend putting mink oil on all the leather and on the seams, make sure you put it on nice and thick, that will kind of do a extra waterproofing.

Question

Rugged durability and comfort

I hunt Elk in Central Idaho, very rugged terrain. I was wondering how these would do on the shale and steep mountainous terrain. I am looking for a durable, comfortable, rugged boot that will take weather conditions from 40* and rain to -5* and snowing.

I have hunted with a pair of LaCross packs for a couple years now and am looking to up grade.

You are definitely good to go with these.
The only thing that I found with these was that they seem to break down after a while but they still work great and the warranty is awesome.
also make sure you mink oil them, especially the seams.

straight leg pants (Jeans) can be difficult sliding over the boots. The looser fit of my hunting pants are very easy, especially ones with zipper sides.

answer 2
The Cabela's 6 pocket pants will not fit over the boot. I wore my pants in the boot, my cold weather bibs fit well on over the boot. I do not think most hunting pants, unless very loose, will fit over the boot.

The boot lacing system is located behind the calf potion of the boot. If pants are worn over the boot it would be difficult to use.

If you think mossy oak is sexy... go for it! I'd find it very difficult to get pants over the boot, more likely tucked into the boot

Boots are a bit big at the top and would probably be clumsy with pants over the outside. I tuck my pants inside the boot.

Question

Can I wade through 10" of water without getting my feet wet?

Is it only the Gore-Tex liner that is waterproof? Or, is the outer shell waterproof as well?

answer 6
The Cabela's Pinnacle Boa® Extreme 800-Gram Boots, item # IK-818411, are made to be waterproof. The only place were water can come in would be over the top. Since they are 16" boots, you should be able to wade through 10" of water without getting your feet wet, so long as no water splashes and comes in the top of the boots.
