What is the difference between Hoffman Boots and others?
The Hoffman Pac Boots are built with the finest materials available. From the
quality rubber bottoms, the heavy duty oil tanned leather uppers to the quilted
thinsulate liners and the heavy duty 9mm felt liners, all of the materials are
the best.. The other major difference is the fit of the Hoffman Boots. These
boots are designed with a supportive fit to allow all day walking comfort.
What is the life expectancy of these boots?
There are too many factors to define how long our boots will last for each
customer but rest assured every pair of Hoffman Pac boots is built to take a
beating. And if you ever wear the rubber bottom of the boot out, you can send
the boots in to be rebuilt at around half of the cost of a new pair.
Are they waterproof and what do I treat the leather with?
The rubber bottoms are completely waterproof. The oil tanned uppers made with
our heavy duty 7 oz. leather are highly water resistant. With a waterproofing
treatment like Hoffman Premium Dressings, the water resistance of the leather
uppers increases dramatically. In extremely wet conditions a seam sealer like
our seam sealant can be used to seal all of the seams and the junction between
the leather and the rubber bottom.
Where are they manufactured?
Our boots are manufactured in Kellogg, Idaho.
How warm are the boots?
So many factors come into play here. Things like activity, type of socks, a
person’s circulation, and what you are wearing on your head. We have found that
the number one factor in cold feet is a boot that fits too tight. If you have
further questions on boot warmth, please feel free to contact our customer
How do I know what size to order?
Hoffman Pac Boots are available in whole sizes only and are sized to
incorporate a good quality boot sock. Look at our fitting tips for help with
FITTING TIPS: Hoffman felt pacs run true to size. Whole size-order the same.
Half size-Order down (i.e.: 9 1/2 would order 9) unless you have a wide foot.
FITTING TIPS: Hoffman Thinsulate Pacs tend to run small. Add 1 size to your
current shoe size. (i.e.: size 9 or 9 1/2 would order a size 10)
What size should I order if I am a woman?
The boots are available in unisex sizes 5-15. Women should order one to one
and half sizes down from their normal shoe size.
Does your boots come in different heights and what is best?
The height of the boot comes down to personal preference. We sell a 10", 12”
and a 14" heights equally well.
Will these boots fit into stirrups?
Yes, our thinsulate lined boots will but as with any rubber bottom boot,
caution must be used. Do not slide your foot all the way in to the stirrups. Our
felt lined Cowboy pac is also a
good choice for stirrup use and oversized stirrups are recommended.
What socks should I wear?
We recommend a two sock system. A quality, fitted liner sock with a good
quality wool blend fitted boot sock over the top. The weight (thickness) of the
boot sock can be adjusted to customize the fit of your boots. - Narrow foot =
extra heavy weight sock, wide foot = lightweight sock. We offer a few different
socks that we have found to work well.
Can I take the liners out and should I have a second liner?
Removable liners allow much easier and faster drying. We recommend an extra
set of liners and rotate them daily if you will be using your Hoffman Pacs on
