Timberland Chillberg Mid Shell-Toe Waterproof Boots

photo: Timberland Chillberg Mid Shell-Toe Waterproof Boots winter boot

These lightweight Chillberg Mid Shell-Toe winter boots by Timberland are perfect for hiking or just walking in snow, light mud, or wet terrain. They are well insulated, waterproof and comfortable. I recommend them for general use in the snowy outdoors.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Warm and dry
  • Recycled materials

Cons

  • Laces don't seem to stay tied.

These boots fit beautifully. I wear a size 9 and the 9s fit true to size. No break-in needed. Wore them for 4 miles in Lake Tahoe on day one without issue. Loved the Primaloft insulation, which is 90% recycled material.

Warm and water resistant these boots also offered breath-ability. I wore them in temperatures as cold as 12 degrees Fahrenheit above zero and was very comfortable and warm.

The lightweight materials were a plus considering the weight of winter clothing. The shoes offered nice support for my ankles. The soles were flexible (could feel rocks through them without discomfort) but still gripped the trail.

Despite the snow and mud conditions my feet stayed warm and dry.

I did have trouble keeping the boots laced.  Not sure if it was the recycled materials in the laces or if the hooks were too open.
