Oboz Crest Low BDry – Final Report

 

After three days on soggy, water logged trails.

A 24 mile hike in the Nantahala Wilderness at the headwaters of the Nantahala River in the Blue Ridge Mountains provided the “perfect” final test for the Crest Low BDry shoes. I wouldn’t call the conditions perfect for backpacking, but for testing a pair of waterproof shoes made for through hikes, it couldn’t have been any better. Click here and scroll to the bottom to read my final update from this trip and draw some conclusions about the shoes.

Final Update Baffin Kiki Boots

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.

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.
