Ready for Fall? I am! I received the Bogs Plimsoll women’s boot to review, and I was all ready for a typical, wet, Maine fall. So far, its the driest September in 60 years. I’m actually hoping for some rain very soon, or I may have to go play in the river. They are the low cut version, coming to a few inches above the top of my ankle. So far, the boots are comfortable and feel well cushioned. Read my initial review HERE.

I have contained to wear the Copperhead boots quite a bit over the past month and a half, mostly while dayhiking and on one kayaking trip. I still have not ran across any snakes. I also wore them several more times while working on clearing some brush in an overgrown wooded area. The only real problem I have experienced is that it has been unseasonably warm during this time. February is normally our coldest month, but since my last update in mid February it has not even gotten below freezing, and many days have seen a high in the upper 70s to low 80s F.

Now the I have had these boots a month and a half I have had plenty of opportunities to wear them during a variety of activities and under various conditions. What hes emerged is that these are some serious winter boots. Where they really shine is during cold and wet conditions. I have several trails that I either walk or ride my mountain bike on. This past January proved to be one of the warmest in recent history but also one of the wettest. This meant I had reasonable temperatures to ride but the trails were so wet I decided I’d get my exercise by walking them rather than riding. The trial crosses several small streams. Most are not real deep but one is at least a foot deep after weeks of rainy weather and too wide to just jump across. In the past when wearing regular tennis shoes or even my waterproof New Balance trail runners I would need to find a suitable place to cross or get my feet soaked. With the Copperhead boots I was able to just go straight on across. To read the rest of the update along with the rest of the review please click here.
Check out the Classic High Handle Bog Boots. I’m going to see how they handle winter in Maine, now that it is actually winter. I’m hoping the Bogs can keep my feet warm, dry and comfortable. I know most people say if your head is warm, your body stays warmer. For me, if my feet are warm, I stay more comfortable. Read what I’ve found so far HERE.
The Copperhead is listed in the hunting category on the website, and as expected, they are camo (Realtree). Also, as the name hints, these are snake boots. I already own a pair of Bogs boots (the Blaze MT) and have been extremely pleased with their performance but I am excited to see if the Copperhead’s are up to the challenge. So over the next few months I’ll be wearing the Copperhead boots while I am out and about exploring in the woods and paddling on local creeks and rivers.
