I'm moving out of my comfort range (usually 20-30 F winters) and going to Alaska for Feb. and March and am at a bit of a loss as to what to look for in a good boot. I'd like it to be suitable for some hiking, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing and a bit of just standing around.
Should it cover most of my calf?
Have a certain temperature rating?
If it only covers my ankle, are gaiter sufficient for warmth and protection from snow?
Anything else I should look for in a boot (or even hats,gloves, jackets, base layers)? Thanks for your help!
