I have used old macs for years, and I like them as far as their intended purpose and all, but....they aren't easy to get on and I think the leather straps are too short, you can't get leverage and on some hoof "shapes" its a trial! Anyway, I like the look of the new back country easyboot. Has anyone tried both old macs and the easyboot - is the "easyboot" any easier to get on and off? Are they durable (its rocky where I live...durability is a biggy). Thanks.
