Great List

This is a well thought out list. I've been here in Montana for the past 19 years and also spent several years in Alaska...Good job.

Taliv,

Here is the glove but it looks like they are being discontinued.

http://www.cabelas.com/product/Cloth...3Bcat104128380

I went to Cabelas today and their replacement/upgrade appears to be a glove called the Pinnacle. And they are almost twice the price at $99.00 but they looked like seriously warm well designed gloves. I'll hang on to my old Dry Plus gloves until they die then will look real hard at the Pinnacle gloves.

The Schnee Hunter IIs are awesome. With all the snow we've had mine have been getting some good usage.

Robert I've gotten 6 + years of hard winter use out if mine. They are still in great shape, warm and waterproof as ever. In fact I wore them all day today in -0 temps and my feet were toasty. I started the day off watering horses and hacking ice balls out of their feet, Schnees has my undying devotion as long as they don't change a thing about their hunting pack boots! They are the best serious hard winter condition hunting boots ever made.

definitely need a packhorse to help haul all that stuff. Wow. If you wear glasses, bring a spare pair, and a strap to keep them on you. Especially when on horseback or on slippery slopes. They tend to break if you fall on your face, knock them off flailing for balance, etc. If you seriously need them and have no spare, there went your hunt, right there.

Mine were action ready the first time I put them on. No break in needed.

Good list only differnce I do is is WWII shooters mittens instead of the gloves. It was 10 degrees F my late season and without the mittens my fingers would have been numb.
