And the Winner is…

We have received some great photo submissions for our “Replace My Boots!” contest over the last couple of weeks, thank you to everyone that participated! The judges have reached a verdict and the winner is Dean Hiatt! We’re not quite sure if Dean was TRYING to turn his high-top boots into a low-cut shoe or if he just wanted a little more ventilation, but these boots have clearly seen better days!

Does this model come with a sunroof?

Thank you for your photo Dean, you have won the boot of your choice from our Schnee’s Pac Boot or Mountain Boot Collection! Please contact Rob at rob@schnees.com or at 1-800-922-1562 (M-F, 8am-5pm) to claim your boots! Thanks again to everyone that participated and stay tuned for another Boot Giveaway in a couple of weeks!

Late Season Nevada Elk Hunt Play-by-Play

This great letter came to us from long time Schnee’s customer Larry R. in Nevada. Thanks Larry, it sounds like this was a pretty intense hunt! We were happy to hear that your Schnee’s boots were there to keep you going on this memorable hunt!

“To the good people at Schnee’s:

My son Brad and I were on a cow elk hunt in eastern Nevada. A freak snow storm hit the area, but the elk were there. After an ugly encounter with snow covered rocks, the four wheel drive on my expeditions failed.

 30 Dec 10 –    0700, calf deep snow, 0 degrees, we press on.

                           1100, knee deep snow, 5 degrees, no elk sign

                           1230, thigh deep snow, 5 degrees, elk tracks!

                           1300, fresh bedding/feeding area, the hunt is on!

                           1400, long shot missed, in hot pursuit. Waist deep snow, -5 degrees.

                           1430, large cow elk down, sun setting, -10 degrees.

                           1600, elk butchered, ready for transport to vehicle, 4 miles, sun gone,    

                                  -15 degrees. Fighting snow, plummeting temps & heavy packs,  

                                  we press on. The temperature drops to -22. Canteens frozen,

                                  food frozen, meat on our backs frozen. Our bodies begin to chill. 

                                  Cold hands, cold face, cold legs, cold everything. Except our feet,

                                 thanks to Schnee’s Hunter II pack boots. Feet? Warm, dry, 

                                 comfortable.      

 31 Dec 10 – 0100, arrive at vehicle. Thank you Schnee’s.”

Schnee’s Pac Boots – 23 Years in the Making

For over 23 years, Schnee’s has been manufacturing their legendary line of Schnee’s Pac Boots right here in the mountains of Montana. Created out of necessity for a product that just didn’t exist, the Schnee Pac has become the boot of choice for sportsmen, ranchers and outdoor enthusiasts from the Rocky Mountains to the Adirondacks.

Beginning with premium hand-selected US leather hides, the boot upper is cut and crafted to provide optimal fit and maximum support surrounding your ankle and calf. Many boot manufacturers us a generic “stove-pipe” upper design which results in poor fit and uncomfortable flexing and bunching, Schnee’s insists upon using a “split” backstay design and signature flex-notches for an improved fit and minimal bunching.

Schnee’s rubber bottoms are crafted from hand-laid pieces of real rubber and vulcanized for rugged, waterproof support.  Our rubber bottoms also feature thermal plastic heel counters as well as steel shanks to provide the fit and support of an all-leather boot as well as a cushioned inner sole for added comfort. Most of our boots are also offered in your choice of a Tire Tread outsole which is great for shedding mud and snow or Schnee’s exclusive air-bob Advantage™ outsole for maximum traction in any condition.

Schnee’s Pac Boots are available in Insulated and Uninsulated models for year-round use. Our insulated boots feature removable quilted liners that utilize a three layer construction for optimum combination of warmth and moisture-wicking comfort. The inside of the liner is made from a durable layer of Cambrelle to help pull moisture away from your feet. The middle layer of the liner holds a layer of 400 gram Thinsulate™ Insulation for significant warmth without any unnecessary bulk. The outer layer of the liner is made from 3mm of wool felt which creates an added layer of warmth and moisture wicking comfort.

Schnee’s Pac Boots are built to withstand the rigor of everyday wear and to fulfill the demands of the hardworking and harder playing customers that wear them. All Schnee’s boots are rebuildable for years (even decades!) of use, and like all Schnee’s products they are backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

As the fall air cools and winter begins to slip in, now is a great time to look for that perfect boot. Whether you’re running errands in town, handling chores on the ranch or headed into the mountains in search of that trophy elk, Schnee’s has the right boot to fulfill your needs!
