    Great 3 season footwear, solidly built

    A video w/old pal Chad Hoover popped up on my YT feed. He was stoked on these, and he doesn't crow about gear that doesn't get the job done for fishermen.

    The tread is really great for slippery boat ramps and mossy/algae covered rocks. The Backwater drains well and is breathable so your feet dry out and aren't pruned up at the take out.

    The gray color is nice on hot summer days. Your feet don't feel like they've been stuck in a crock-pot all day.

    If you're a half-size order a size up and you can wear a pair of HydroSkin socks and stretch the Backwaters further in to the late fall and early winter months.

    I have found these very comfortable while using a pedal powered kayak. The uppers have enough stretch so that the material doesn't bunch and chafe the tops of your ankles as some surf/dive booties are prone to do.

    The only thing I would add is a finger loop on the back of the upper to aid in pulling them on.

    Great Boots!

    These are great boots for slippery rocks. I'm a size 10 and I ordered a size 11 to wear over my Kokatat Tempest Pants. Warm, good grip, and comfortable walking on rocks.
