Any suggestions for best winter camping boot for ease to walk, strap into skis, put on snowshoes, without taking them off? I've got some Baffin Bay boots, got cheap in Ely at surplus store, but they are total moon boots, rated to -140 and way to big for most ski bindings. I'm a size 10 and these are huge. Thanks
I would probably steer you towards an insulated hiking boot. Not too bulky and will fit in universal bindings of the altai hoks that you're looking at. When you're moving/working your toes will stay warm. Mine are not waterproof and I think that helps them dry out. To address that I have a pair of Neos overshoes (adventurer model from a few years ago). With those on I am slush proof and they probably add a few degrees of warmth because they function like an external vapor barrier. Having a dry warm boot for camp/fishing is mandatory so your moon boots prolly still have a role.
I have used a Keen Summit County boot for several years now with my snowshoes. They have worked great for me. My feet have stayed warm in them with just a pair of Smartwool ski/snowboard socks down to -20 temps. Very comfortable for me to wear all day.
