Warren H.wrote a review of Woolrich Footwear Packer Boot - Men's on December 23, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
I was looking for a leather, waterproof hiking boot with a wool lining , aggressive tread and good looks. I tried the Merrell Wilderness (Italian Model), Zamberlan Solda and Danner Mtn. Light GTX. Each boot had it's own merits but none had all of the features of the Woolrich Packer Boot. In fact, I took them out for a four mile hike yesterday in 40 degree muddy conditions and the boots performed admirably. I should mention that unlike some of the other boots I tried, the Woolrich Packer has a vertical seam along the instep. Moreover, I believe that not all of the Woolrich Packer models are waterproof. Nevertheless, the "Ginger" color, which runs a half size smaller than my normal shoe size, fits like a glove and appears to be an effective winter hiking boot.
