D&H has carried the Patagonia Rock Grip wading boot for some time now, but I had not worn them in a stream. I went down to the Elkhorn Creek in Kentucky last Thursday and thought I would give the new design a try. First impressions: WOW!
I tested them on every different type of rock I could find and found the grip to be great. The water was low and we had to push our canoes thru many riffle sections with our customers in the canoe and I know I got traction with the aluminum bars that I would not have received with felt.
