Gift idea for outdoor photographers: Snake protection boots

Gift idea for outdoor photographers: Snake protection boots

Photographers, hunters, hikers, and others who love the outdoors need protection against snake bites.

Landscape photographers often obsess about camera gear, but not necessarily protective gear.

If you have a photography enthusiast in your life, you’ve already learned that buying the right photo gear can be tricky and confusing. But wildlife and landscape photographers also need gear that helps them cope with the elements, and the environment.

As a landscape photographer, I’ve encountered a lot of snakes along the way. I regularly hike through tall grass, along river banks, and over rocky hillsides, where snakes are likely to be found but are difficult to see. Luckily, I’ve never had a bite, but I realized the importance of protecting myself after a park ranger in New Mexico warned me to beware of rattlesnakes on a rocky hiking trail.

Snakebite protection for wildlife and landscape photographers, as well as hunters, hikers, and outdoorsmen

Danner Men’s Pronghorn Snake Side-Zip Hunting Boot

I like these boots because they have tall uppers, they’re comfortable, waterproof, and the lacing can be adjusted for tucking-in pants if desired. These boots also have a chunky tread, which I prefer for hiking.

 

Chippewa Men’s 17″ Mocc-Toe Pull-On 23909 Snake Boot

I love the look of these 17-inch Chippewas. These are pull-ons, and they look great while protecting.

LaCrosse Men’s Venom Scent APG HD Snake Boot

Hunters and wildlife photographers might prefer these full-camouflage LaCrosse snake boots. These 18-inch boots offer 360-degree snake protection, rubber soles, and they’re waterproof.
