Rocky Men’s Lynx Hunting Boots Review

Rocky Men’s Lynx Hunting Boots Review

Hunting can get dangerous at times. While it can also be fun and educational, it always helps to take precautions to make it as safe as possible. Whether these precautions concern your firearm or your clothing, it is always important to consider your safety above everything else while you are hunting.

This is why snake-proof hunting boots are a wise choice. If you live in an area where snakes thrive, they may just save you from a trip to the hospital.

Product Description

If you are looking for hunting boots which are as durable as possible, the Rocky Lynx may just be your model of choice.

These boots are ideal for hunters who live in a more arid climate or just a state where snakes are a common sighting while you are hunting.

While you should always watch your step while you are hunting, you never know when a snake may slither out of the brush.

With these boots, you can remain safe, even if you are surprised by a wild snake. In addition to their durability, these boots are also comfortable and rather resistant to the elements.

Pros

Durability is the name of the game when it comes to the Rocky Lynx hunting boots. While other aspects are certainly not neglected, it is evident to see that the designers of this boot envisioned a boot which makes the competition look as if it is made of paper. The body of the Lynx hunting boot is made with Cordura fabric, which is highly resistant to damage.

When it comes to resisting snakebites, we, unfortunately, did not have a snake on hand, but we did try poking and jabbing the boots with various tools and some knives to little effect. After our tests, we were confident that we could walk around a snake-infested pit and be able to get out unscathed.

The inclusion of a cushioned sole also ensures that your feet will not get sore on long hunting trips.

Cons

One of the unfortunate aspects of this boot is that the zipper tends to chafe against your ankles while you are out on the hunt.

This can get maddeningly irritating, so we would recommend using ankle sleeves if you plan on purchasing this product.

Conclusion

Besides a few issues with the comfort that can easily be solved by ankle sleeves, this model of hunting boot is an excellent choice for those who value not only snake bite protection, but also sheer durability. If you find that your hunting boots keep failing on you after a short time due to rough conditions, you may find that the Rocky Lynx is a perfect choice.
