  • My experience with the Merrell Moab Ventilator Mid Hiking Boot is a blend of waterproofness.

    My feet stay dry when I am walking in the rain or through heavy, dew-wet grass. If I walk in water that is not over the top of my boot, the hydrostatic pressure will force water into the boot.

    The problem that I experience with the waterproof boots is that my feet are always damp/wet at the end of the day. With the Moab Ventilators, my feet are always dry, even after a day of hiking or working in my garden (planting and watering provide plenty of opportunities for wet boots).

  • No, actually pull water in as they are ventilated. I swap out inner soles on colder and damp spring days.

  • The Ventilator is not waterproof. But there is a Merell Moab model that is waterproof. It should be listed as such and will cost you 25-50$ more.
