Editor’s Review: The North Face Thermoball Versa Boots
I just put these suckers to use for the first time in Whistler, BC, where in our two days of on- and off-hill testing our crew experienced everything from heavy snowfall to pissing rain. Down in Whistler Village, it was more of the latter (not surprising, given spring has arrived).
The waterproof and insulated Versa Boots were a life-saver, keeping my feet warm and dry as we made our away around town, trudging through wet snow. PrimaLoft ThermoBall synthetic insulation in the collar and 100g PrimaLoft Silver Insulation Eco in the vamp provided just the right amount of warmth. That is to say, it’s not the type of insulation that might yield sweaty-hot feet, but it sure was noticeably pleasant compared to a standard, non-insulted boot. Style and comfort are on-point, too. — Henrik Lampert, Editor-in-Chief
