Columbia Bugaboot Review


Columbia Bugaboot

[rating:5]
The Columbia Bugaboots are a great value and should be in any hiker’s cold weather arsenal. It handles rain, snow and general cold conditions with ease. I bought these boots last November and took them to Mount Baldy with 4 feet of snow. I also brought a pair of gaiters to keep the snow out. My feet never got cold or damp. The next time I tried them was in a rainy Yosemite. Again, my feet were totally comfortable.

The Bugaboot, a Columbia Sportswear classic since 1993, is updated and improved for superior performance. An excellent all around insulated boot for cold weather adventure, the Bugaboot is warmer than ever and loaded with Columbia`s finest footwear features.
