To me, the boots I wear hiking or backpacking are the most important piece of my gear. Since I do not carry a spare pair of boots, I depend on the boots I am wearing to complete each hike. I have been partial to natural materials like leather and wool, but I have to admit that the synthetic Lowa Innox Ice GTX Mid hiking boots have changed my mind.  During this period, I was doing the same activities as the last period, except the temperatures experienced were as low as 0 F. I have worn these boots everyday with few exceptions.  To read more please click here.

The Baffin Sequoia Men’s Winter Boots engineered in Canada, where cold weather in winter is no stranger, are some serious looking winter boots. Canada has long winters that start early and end late. A quick look at the boots revealed many features that I like. My first big surprise was picking up one of the boots because I thought it was going to be heavy. I was so surprised that I had to weigh it. Now I will describe this great looking boot.

The lacing system consists of 7 pairs of loops and a single loop. Starting near the toe end is a single fabric loop centered on the shoe. Moving up the boot are 3 pair of fabric loops. The final 4 pair are metal enclosed loops. All loops are flexible and provide articulation when walking in the boot. The laces are self tying eliminating the need to tie laces. They look identical to other Baffin boots I have used and liked.  To read more please click here.
