Great Boot!!

Amazing boots, very comfortable! A little stiff at first but once they are broken in, they are delightful.

Incredible for Hunting

I recently returned from a 2-week safari in Africa with Field Ethos Journal. An incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, we hunted two distinct and very different areas: One was flat and dry, and the other in thick jungles and mountainous terrain. I was hunting with both a bow and rifle, which required an ability to move quickly and quietly at times. Given we weren’t allowed tons of luggage, gear selection was an important part of the consideration as I prepared for the trip.

My favorite hunting boot is the SuperAlp GTX, but given the warm temps, I knew that it would be too much boot for this trip, so I took the Pilgrim DS. Stable, lightweight, breathable, and comfortable enough to wear all day, the boots were the perfect choice, and it’s no wonder the Pilgrim DS is the boot of choice for so many special forces units.

I always say that gear is working when you don’t think about it. And never once did I stop due to a boot issue. The Pilgrim DS fits like tennis shoes and performs like a mountain boot. My feet were never too hot, and I was able to accomplish all of my hunting goals on this trip in them.

Best boots

These are my absolute favorite boots.
Found them after Asolo stopped making the FN95s at the Italian PX in NKIA. On my 3rd pair since 2013.
