Materials: nubuk on the outside gore-tex liner inside.
Use: 30 pound pack multiple day hikes.
Price Paid: about 200
Went on a three day upstate New York mountain hike in these boots to break them in mid April. The conditions were toughest possible to test the boots, it was a thunderstorm and water and mud were everywhere, as we went higher it was 3-4 feet deep snow on the northern sides of the mountains. Even stepped up to the knee into a river while crossing it. At the end of the third day my feet were as dry as when I started the trip what could not be said about the feet of my 2 companions whose feet were wet and cold through and through. The only drawback of these boots is that they are not nimble, but that's the sacrifice for comfort, warmth and dryness.
