Re: Cold weather boots ? brand , insulation ?
Whites snow pacs, but with Schnees liners, & aftermarket insoles. It's my opinion of the perfect combo. I hike usually between 4 & 12 miles per day in snow, ice, etc. Steep & flat, wooded, & open country in elk season with mine.
I've also used & abused them at work & they hold up well. I am harder on my equipment than most folks, & demand the best because of this.
As mentioned before, gaiters help keep jeans dry, & laces from icing up. If its nasty out, I wear Filson tin-pants over my jeans & boot tops. This also keeps laces from icing up to bad, plus it keeps me warm while knocking snow off brush.
I see your from Wa. st. So your probably already familiar with Whites, & Hawthorne out of Spokane. You may like the idea of having quality rebuildable & reliable footwear.
