Timberland Sizing Chart
3 out of 3
warm but heavy
January 03, 2013
I got these boots hoping to keep my feet warm in camp during mid-winter backpacking trips, but was unable to find their weight anywhere online before I bought them. Once received I weighed them on my postal scale and they come in at a whopping 17 ounces for a women's size 8--far too heavy for backpacking but nice for other uses. Might be great for trips to the ski lodge, for instance. They pack down small (although zipping them back together is a bit like stuffing a newborn baby back into the birth canal). I think the whole zipper concept is unnecesary and looks a little goofy when you're wearing them. The rubber soles are quite sturdy and durable and provide pretty good traction. The bungees on the back cinch the heel in place so your feet don't slide around. The insulation is toasty but I can't speak to field use because I'm returning mine. I just wanted to let people know about their weight, and also that they run slightly small so if you're between sizes and planning to wear these with socks, definitely order a size up. This boot is a great idea and I'm looking forward to the easy fixes Timberland could employ to make these light enough for winter backpacking.Pros: warm, Cons: heavy, goofy
