Our second product from Kamik and it is more of an everyday winter boot, especially when compared to some of the more hardcore models we’ve looked at. This is especially highlighted when you look at the insulation layer provided, with 200 grams of Thinsulate material in this product. That is the lowest level of insulation of any product on the list.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing however. We don’t all go snowmobiling on the Arctic Tundra, and 200 grams of insulation is ok for pretty cool temperatures. In addition, because of the low insulation, Kamik are able to build a boot with a far more everyday appearance too – you can wear them around town without a second glance.
They still have some useful features too. The upper is leather for waterproof protection; the sole is 100% rubber so it will provide both waterproof protection and good traction. The lining is moisture wicking and can be removed for easy cleaning. All in all, don’t wear these in the coldest conditions – but for more inclement winter weather these are very well designed snowmobile boots.
