Wind River III B-Dry Backpacking Boot
Wherever you're backpacking, the Oboz Women's Wind River III B-Dry Backpacking Boot protects your most important asset—your foot. The Wind River outsole is not only built with 4.5mm directional lugs for traction while ascending or descending, but these lugs are also arranged in a pattern designed to represent the Wind River range. An EVA midsole helps disperse the extra impact that occurs from hiking with a loaded pack, and it has an asymmetrical chassis that reduces the roll risk for your ankle while allowing the boot to flex for natural foot movement. The B-Dry membrane seals out water from puddles and showers while allowing your sweat to escape, reducing chafing to prevent blisters.

A solid pair of boots
- I've used it several times
I love my Oboz. These boots are about as durable, yet comfortable as a hiking boot can get. My first hike with them was up Grandeur peak in the snow with Yaktrax on them. They were stiff, but did not give me any blisters at all. I'm happy to report the B-Dry outer layer works and my feet stayed dry in the snow. They are heavy, as hiking boots are, but I feel like I can conquer any terrain in them, especially rocky hikes (which is why I got them). I am between an 8.5 and 9 shoe size for casual shoes and boots and it's always a toss up for me. Based on other reviews, I bought a size 9 as they run somewhat small and they fit perfectly! I also like the earth tone colors with the hint of purple. Usually women's outdoor shoes have gross colors, but these work. I also got these because they have metal hook eyelets, which are a must for me! I used to have boots with fabric eyelets and they always broke after about a year of use. I really couldn't be happier with these.

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review Is my personal opinion. I was really excited to try the Oboz Wind River III Backpacking Boot out because of a bad ankle I have from a few months ago. I was used to wearing shorter boots or trail runners for backpacking but needed some extra support for my ankle. I have taken these boots about 40 miles into the peaks of the Wasatch and the canyons of Southern Utah. They were great for the snow we hit in the mountains and not a drop of sand got through them while in the canyons. I was accidentally kicking cactus on the trail and never felt anything and the boots look brand new after 2 backpacking trips. Sizing was a little off for me. They were very tight when I initially got them and could barely fit them on my foot but after wearing them around work for a few days to break them in they started loosening up. I would suggest sizing up, I kept them because I knew my ankle was never going to move with how tight they were. A lot of people these days are complaining about how womenâs outdoor gear has too much pink and purple but I loved the purple accents on these boots! These shoes are very durable and give me confidence that they will last for a very long time. Iâm very excited to take the Oboz Wind River III Backpacking Boot into the Wind River Range this fall.
