I purchased a pair of these high cut paddling boots for the cold weather paddling season. Used them approx. 4-5 times so far. They are absolutely great. Totally waterproof. Zero leakage. Roomy enough to wear socks for addional warmth. Only $42.00 Canadian. Compare that to Chota's or NRS high cut paddling boots. MEC is quick and efficient in getting them to you.
