    i'm in the same boat, i have some irish setters but they're better suited for late season hunts, would be nice to find a lighter, waterproof, un-insulated boot for early season

    Try the Irish Setter Havoc Upland boot. They are uninsulated and fairly light.

    I second the irish setter havocs for a good early season boot. They feel like you are wearing a cloud on your feet.

    Sounds weird but later season I wear my un-insulated muck boots with wool socks and my pants tucked into them. keeps my feet really warm and they are light enough to go clomping around through the thicker cover.

    Curious,

    For those that are wearing Irish Setters, at least for the past 5-10 years or so, how are they holding up? The reason I ask is that all Irish Setter brands are made in China and even many of the Red Wing brand (which are assembled in USA) are made from Chinese materials. I've had many bad experiences with products made in China when it comes to quality. The Irish Setters made now are nothing compared to what my dad or grandfather wore way back when. The last Irish Setter boots I bought was about 15 years ago, we'll.. lets just say I was less than impressed.

    I have had no problem with any of the Irish Setter boots I've owned holding up very well. But like every other brand of so called "waterproof" boots that I've ever had they do leak if subjected to longer periods of wet grass or wet snow. I've found the same to be true of Danners, Rocky, Keen and others with Gore-Tex or a similar waterproof membranes.

    I'm trying something new this year, adding a pair of Carolina work boots to my boot arsenal. Local shoe shop sells them, they're american made and high quality. If anybody interested I can share the model #. I have wore a similar model for work with great success. I do rotate boots daily and wear danners, irish setters and cabelas brands.

    I have Danner Pronghorn, Danner Sharptails, and a pair of Cabela’s Guide Gear boots. The Cabela’s are my favorite. Over the years they’ve worn like iron and are very comfortable. After that I found the Danners to be the most comfortable and longest lasting.

    I hit my boots with Sno-Seal every year before the season starts and have very little issues with wet feet.

    Buy a boot dryer and you’ll like all your boots a lot more. Wear poly liners under your socks in warm and cold weather. I sold most of my guns and bought more boots.
    Dry weather go to boots-Irish Setter Havocs and Keen Targhee mid hikers, Both incredibly comfortable.
    Wet weather boots-Muck Uplanders and Muck Wetlands
    Boots are a lot like guns. Personal preference more than anything. A lot of good stuff out there.

    Depending on the conditions I wear Cabelas moccasin toe leather. Danner Sharptail's or La Cross Grange boots. All un isolated. If those won;t be warm enough I stay in the shack !!
