  • Mukluks vs Pack Boots

    I see that it's pretty split for many that winter camp why do you choose mukluks or pack boots over the other?

    Steger Mukluks all the way. In dry cold weather I know of no better boot! I pack an extra pair of liners with me to rotate while I'm out and about. They work great.

      I made my own winter mukluks and prefer them to pack boots, warmer and more comfortable. Bison lowers with canvas uppers and coyote trim. Very warm and extra points for style.

        Mukluks for me if the weather permits. Carrying multiple liners is key. Perfect in cold conditions, and so comfortable.
        Slush, well thats another story......

          I'm a big proponent of mukluks and/or winter mocs. I'm on my second pair of Steger Mukluks and really enjoy wearing them. Heck, I make excuses to wear them when I can. The winter mocs I made myself and use an inner wool felt bootie for the insulating layer; the moc is made from moosehide with deerskin uppers instead of canvas.

          That said, if I know the conditions are going to be wet & sloppy, I'll pull out my old Sorels and use them instead. For the most part though my Sorels are now relegated to doing outdoor chores around the house; shoveling, hauling wood in for the stove, etc. They're easy to slide in to and out of so they certainly have their place.

          That's all for now. Take care and until next time....be well.

            Packs when it’s likely to get damp, and mukluks in the dry cold. My tattered Steger’s have seen several hundred miles every winter over the last several lustrum,,, my pack boots are of an equal age and look all but new...

                Muks for me (😊kinda), but I keep a pair of NEOS on hand with matching liners and insoles.

                  If it weren’t for my mukluks, I’d have no luk at all!
                  I’ll wear my mukluks until I finish my homemade pak-boots.
