I grew up backpacking in the Rockies. I hike ranges near Tucson, Arizona during winter, Colorado during summer. I carry a light pack, mostly water. I tend to camp with a tarp whenever possible to reduce the weight of my two person tent. Primarily I do day hikes, but I am known to spend 5 days out. Temperatures range from to extreme winter to 100 F (38 C) , and elevation from 2000' (600 m) to 14,000 (4,300 m). I bag a mountain every weekend, and walk my dogs daily through deep sand and overgrown mesquite trees in our local washes.
I can't tell you how many times I have been sitting at a campsite after a brutally long hike and all I wanted to do was take my boots off, but it was too cold and the ground was too unforgiving to my unprotected feet. The Baffin Booties look like they could supply the warmth I need without sacrificing protection for the bottom of my feet. I look foward to reporting back on the warmth and durability of these booties as well as the ease of packing them in my pack and their overall comfort. I also foresee a significant amount of use around the house on the cold tile floor.
