    Cowboy Boots

    Yahoody, you said a mouthful about the benefits of keeping 'em light. I’m curious about the problems with the Nicks - didn’t fit right? I have White's (love the high arch) and can’t believe there would be much difference between White's and Nick's. Not sure if you know, but Nick's former GM...

    Cowboy Boots

    Last point (don’t want to hijack the thread!) - I got the Altra Lone Peaks from a store that let me first buy a different brand, go hike in them, then return them when I got blisters.

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Okay, and how about the Stetson? And thanks for the backstory on the Rogers Peet hats. It's too bad they've gone a bit brittle. I wonder if they could be slowly re-humidified?

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Some excellent hats gentlemen! Just a question for Michaelshane - I would love to hear some more information about the last two hats you posted in this thread. Both are quite interesting and not immediately readily identifiable. Thanks for anything you'd care to share.
