A Week In the BWCA
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Painteddeer from Indiana on Friday, June 26, 2015
I have been going to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area for years. The trek in is usually 8 to 12 hours of paddling, wading and intense portaging. Normally I do this trip in July but this year I did it in early June. I thought that trekking in with waders would be good as I thought the water would be cold and the weather forecast for the week I was going to be in was upper 40's at night and lower 70's during the day. Being wet at those temperatures all day long could be uncomfortable. These waders were great. They were light and comfortable. The temperatures were not as forecasted and were about 10 degrees higher during the day and at night but these waders were comfortable at both ends of the spectrum. Getting wet on portages was not an issue. Hiking in them was not an issue, they were great. And as a bonus when it rained all day the last day, with a rain jacket I was dry all day. They held up to a week on intense trekking without an issue. I was impressed.
