Korkers Hatchback and Darkhorse Wading Boot Review

A quick look at some new wading boots from Korkers. There are two new models to look at the Darkhorse wading boot and the Hatchback Wading boot. The Darkhorse is a more traditionally styled wading boot, while the Hatchback has a unique and cutting edge design of rear entry. Both boots feature fast BOA lacing and the Korkers Omnitrax removable soles.

I have been using the Korkers Devils Canyon boots for a few seasons and love them. Check out my review here –http://hatchesmagazine.com/blogs/Hatches/2014/12/03/korkers-devils-canyon-wading-boots/

    Extremely poor customer service on their older boots. In fact there is NONE, NADA! I have been a loyal Korker customer for some 5 years. I just gave up with them. Most of us cannot buy new boots because ‘THEY’ have a new model and no longer support their older models. Broken drain mess screens, rotted rubber toes and a bunch of minor things that I even offered to repair myself…I just needed the part(s)…NONE available!

    Bottoms of first pair quickly fell apart without parts for replacement. Ground off the bottoms and replaced with felt but I don’t trust them for an extended trip. Second pair were small for my size but I’m using them with a thin wading sock. So far they have held up on several back country trips.

    Great boots! By far the most comfortable out there. So light when compared to other brands. And they are super durable, going on 3 seasons now on my Devil’s Canyons (roughly 180 days). Can’t say enough about these.
