The boot was invented to be worn by those elite sailors that race around the globe in those wonderful ships. It comprises of an outer ... well made plastic material boot into which there is the possibility of using with either a LIFA... (yes that great moisture moving polypro) or a special Helly Hansen waterproof bootie... for dry or cold days. For backpacking I rate it a little heavy at around 2.2 lbs for the complete set up... but the boots are comfortable, drain quickly... need NO DRYING... and appear to be made to last. I really like them for stream fishing since their non-slip sole grabs really well.
