    Check out Kenetrek's Hardscrabble Hiker. Not sure if their lighter than your Meindls though. Kenetrek makes a great boot.

    Vasque.

    I use the Vasque Breeze GTX boots and really like them for summer/mild weather hunting. In really tall wet grass or extreme rain they got soaked.

    I have to say that my Vasque Breeze have served me very well for the warmer summer months and into the early fall season. A nice pair of insoles into these puppies and you can walk for days and not realize it. They're pretty inexpensive, too. The one downside, I believe, is the grip on wet surfaces like smoother rocks and down trees; they can get pretty tricky.

    I have had excellent performance from Kayland Vertigo Highs. They are pretty light for the excellent support. They are making a hunting version now as well.

    Gonna try Lathrop and Sons Hanwags this year. Not impressed with Kennetreks. Bought hardscrambler lights and they rubbed blisters on my heals. Even broke them into. So decided to try there Mountain Extremes and the did the same thing to me.

    This past year I purchased a pair of Cabelas Silent Stalk Sneakers. I have been very impressed with them so far!

    Agree with jndeer. Vasque r really light and offer great support. But inevitably they get soaked.

    Danner Jackal's, super light weight with VERY comfortable insoles. I'm on my second pair now and both have been hunt ready out of the box, no break-in required. These boots IMO are geared towards mild season hunts with little or no snow.
