Danner Full Curl 400G Review

When your stalk takes you to rocky high elevations, Danner’s Full Curl hunting boot carries you with confidence. Gore-Tex delivers the moisture protection and breathability you need for peak performance while the Dynamic Response System delivers superb stability and the Pebax framework adds springboard return for a more smooth, less clunky stride. This means agility. 400g Thinsulate insulation helps take the bite out of a frosty hunt.

These are nice boots for the money and held up very well on several long forays through the mountains of Kodiak Island hunting mountain goats. I put approximately 24 miles on this pair over the course of several long pack in hunts. They provided good ankle support and stability, and although the foot bed is a little stiff (as required), they were very comfortable. I wore them on several 4 to 5 mile hikes to break them in a little before hunting and despite a relatively short break in period, I had no issues with blistering or serious discomfort on my hunts.

They are warm and might be a little too warm in temps over 50 F. The only reason I did not give them a 5 star rating is because I would like to see a more radical tread in the toe area for better gripping inclines and wet grass. Still they worked quite well and held up under the rigors of goat hunting in a harsh wet environment. I would not necessarily recommend them for super long distance mountain treks as I think if you are planning that type of activity you should probably go with a high end mountaineering boot.
