  1. I noticed that Under Armour is now making hunting boots. I've bought some of their clothes before, and I'm looking for some new boots so I was wondering what your over all impression of Under Armour hunting boots were. They felt pretty solid when I looked at them, but I was curious as to how rugged they are.
