Kamik Grippers 2
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mtnmick from Colorado on Tuesday, November 24, 2015
I was a little hesitant to buy Kamik as I had never had them before, I won't hesitate again. These Kamik Grippers 2 are comfortable and warm. I always wear size 12's and these are a little loose with regular white athletic socks but should be perfect when I get some mid-weight winter socks. And with only the athletic socks on I went hiking with a friend up in 2 feet of fresh snow up on Grand Mesa in temps in the low 20's and these performed perfect- warm and comfortable. The only problem I did have was with the built-in gaiters. They do cinch tight to the leg but they are so tall above the rest of the boot that they pouched and held snow long enough for my body heat to melt it and soak my pants. This is only a problem in deep snow so I will get a pair of external gaiters to go over these. The soles of these gripped very well on the ice and packed snow but they don't feel like they have shanks so be careful walking across debris fields. All in all... Great for what they are intended for!
