Summer is in full swing in Southeast Alaska which means temperatures are finally hitting the 60s and sunny days mixed in with the rain that come from living in a rain forest. It also means it is time for us to transfer which has limited the number of hikes that Addison and I have taken, but we have gotten in a few more miles on the boots. Overall the performance is stellar and the boots have become her favorites. Read on for her final thoughts on the boots.

Baffin KIKI Winter Boots
Winter hiking is a family affair in the Boyle household and my 10 year old daughter is accompanying me on more of my hikes. She asked if she could test gear too and 4alloutdoors and Baffin obliged her request. She is testing the Baffin KIKI Women’s boot this winter. I am writing on her behalf, but the review is hers. Read more on her initial thoughts below.
I have received a pair of Baffin Snow Monster boots for review from Baffin. These are part of their Epic Series of boots, and if taking them out of the box and inspecting them gives me any indication, I know why they are part of the “Epic” series!

Review by Susie; Product provided for review by Baffin
Oh my, Baffin, you certainly know a way to a girl’s heart. When I think of Baffin, my mind instantly flashes to the Arctic tundra. Lots of snow. Lots of ice. And really extreme boots. But then Baffin sent their Kiki Womens boots to me to review and my perspective instantly change. “What is this? From what strange world did these stylish yet wicked warm boots come from?!?” I know that seems a bit of an overreaction, but the Kiki boasts all of the warmth that Baffin is known for with a fun faux-fur collar and a toggle closure. They are rated for -40 degrees! With snow in the forecast for here in Maine tomorrow, they arrived just in the nick of time. Check out the first part to my review and be sure to follow 4AllOutdoors.org to see how they handle winter here in New England.
I received a pair of PUR Euros for review purposes, and they claim they are like walking barefoot. I’m going to see about
that! I’ve always loved going barefoot in the summer, but find that its just not a good idea in some places. So, these are going to get a work out after hiking or kayaking, especially around the campfire at night.
Seems a bit funny, as my only previous experience with Baffin footwear is a pair of super winter boots.
