The ColdHold compound sole is a dual density rubber optimized for superior traction in cold environments. Harder, sharper lugs line the perimeter of the sole offering positive bite into snow and frozen turf while the center lugs remain pliable in cold temperature, conforming to irregularities of terrain. The UltraDry waterproofing system combines a moisture management lining with waterproof components for dry, long-lasting comfort and performance.
For unstoppable winter performance, we offer the Snowburban UltraDry boot. Built for winter's worst, the Snowburban comes fully loaded with 400 grams of 3M Thinsulate Ultra Insulation and a reliable UltraDry waterproofing system. Rounding it out is a rugged toe rand and the same articulated hardware as our top-of-the-line backpacking boot. Burly? You bet. But we watched weight at every turn. The result is a warm, durable, go-anywhere boot that's also light enough to get you back.
Hardcore backpacking boots take an agile step forward with the St. Elias GORE-TEX® Although it's our lightest backpacking boot, the St. Elias is built to bomb. To begin, we combined traditional comfort and support with a cutting edge, weight-optimized sole. And then we got creative: the midsole incorporates a soft EVA bed which allows the sole to conform precisely to the irregularities of the trail. The result? Ridiculous traction and a feel (both out of the box and out on the trail), that's unlike anything that's come before.
