Cabelas Trans-Alaska III Pac Boots ?
« on: Nov 12, 2009, 09:44 AM »
I have PAD which restricts the blood flow to my legs and need to find a boot that will keep my feet warm , I've tried other types of boots (Mickey mouse,PAC , Muck ) the Mickeys worked best but I still had numb toes after 3 or 4 hrs . I have read that these Cabelas are the cats ass for keeping your feet warm , they are a little pricey but would buy if they are that good , anyone have them ? Thanks in advance for any help !!!!

If you want warm toes use Baffins.

No boot can compensate for PAD. The best I can say is the Trans Alaska boot is a well made boot with the best under-foot insulation out there. Mine are going on their 6th or 7th season...I can't remember.

You may want to check with your doctor, but my guess is that much of your problem comes from sitting for extended periods in low temps. The Trans Alaskas do have a pocket under the toes for a heat pack. You may even want to look into electric socks.

Speaking of socks...do you layer your foot wear? I wear Silver liners, Poly Propylene and good wool boot socks. Protecting your extremities is very important. Having enough room in your boots for air to circulate is also important, so size them correctly.

those are the best boots I have ever owned . I got a pair last year and love them .  Some think they are to warm ,But I have never had a trip ruined because my feet got to WARM !!! lol .     You will love them . You can stand out all day in them on the coldest of days and never even get the slightest chill on your feet .  I just use a plain cotton tube sock and the boots do the rest .  It is a little tricky to get use to driving a truck with them on ,But I do it .      I will buy another set when I wear these out . One year on them(like 30 full days on the ice ) and still like new.

Another "vote" for the Trans-Alaska III boots.  They are definitely the warmest boot I've ever worn.  I have always had a problem keeping my feet warm - not any longer.

I bought a pair of Cabelas Predator Extreme Pac Boots after the season ended this spring.  Haven't had the chance to try 'em yet, but they have to do a better job at keeping my feet warm than the Rocky Jasper Trac boots that I started out with. 

Warning:  If you are going to put Stabilicers on 'em, go two sizes larger than the Pac boot.  My boots are 11's and I had to go with the XXL Stabilicers.  The XL's, although their sizing chart said they would fit, were too small to get the straps over the boots.

My only knock on the Trans-Alaska boots are that they make your feet stand higher off the ground.  Its kind of like wearing platform shoes.  If you're not doing a ton of walking, they should be fine.  I currently have the Cabela's predator extreme and those feel a little heavier, but your feet are closer to the ground like traditional boots.  Both are ridiculously warm.

are the baffins and trans alaska boots waterproof? my cabela predator extremes have a fabric covered foam tongue and when using the power auger my feet sometimes get wet.

Never get wet feet in my TransAlaskas.  And I think they are easy walking boots; maybe a little "strange" feeling at first but I get around really nice in them - very comfortable.  I might even be able to drive my new full-size chevy truck with them on this year.  Could not do it very safely in my Ford Ranger.  Oops, I forgot, with the screws I put in em I'd better change over to my shoes for driving.  ;D

Roughly - 7.8 lbs.   :woot:  Surprised myself.  No wonder I feel like I've had a workout after a 4 -5 mile walk.  ;D
