|Good to know, I currently have the orvis BOAs, nice boots and have held up well. I did have to replace the wire laces but no big deal. But something more light weight would be nice.|

The goopy clay substrate on a side channel of the main Penobscot sucked one of my studded felts right off the boot and I didn't realize it for a while and hence I never found it.
Yeah, that's the one downside to the interchangeable soles. I've had them come loose in thick muck too, although never lost one outright. After going through a few pairs of boots in the same system after several years, I have lots of spare soles stored up.

|I've been a Korkers customer as well for the better part of the past decade or at least since shortly after they introduced Their current interchangeable sole system. I appreciate the versatility of the system. And even though I'm not sure it really met the bar for a legitimate customer service issue, they made things right the one time I contacted them about a problem. The goopy clay substrate on a side channel of the main Penobscot sucked one of my studded felts right off the boot and I didn't realize it for a while and hence I never found it. I mentioned it to them and they sent me a brand new pair of studded felts with no questions asked. This was the only issue I've ever had with the system which is pretty remarkable given what I put my Buckskins through. |
I'll continue to buy and use their products. Nice folks to deal with, IMO.

|Good to hear all of this, Jason. Korkers had some quality control problems years ago, and I've stayed away. This makes me more open to giving them a try in the future.|
