When I spied the new 2006 Dunham Waffle Stomper Terrastryder Extra (can you say that with your finger on the tip of your tongue?), I thought: “Aha, here’s a lightweight waterproof insulated boot that would be perfect for snowshoeing and snow hiking.” There are lots of insulated pac-type boots and rubber lower section boots around, and they are certainly warm and waterproof, but they’re heavy. The Terrastryder Extra is constructed of leathers and synthetics, insulated with 400-gram Thinsulate Ultra, has Dunham’s Dryworks waterproof/breathable liner, and weigh a lot less. Could they be the ideal boot for hiking in snow and slop?
