"I work for the US Forest Service on the Teton Helitack/Rappel Crew. Two of us on the crew recently purchased the Banff Pro boots to replace our fire boots.
Long story short, I wore them on an initial attack fire in the Wyoming Range. We flew in and hiked off 12 miles. My other crew member took his out of the box and went straight to work.
These are the nicest (comfortable) boots that we have ever worn. A former crew member on the West Yellowstone Smokejumpers also uses the Banff Pro on fires. His assessment is the same: great boots.
Thank you for such outstanding footwear.
B. M., Teton Rappel Crew
