Bridger Mid and Bridger Vent Waterproof: The best combo for everything from snow to sand!

Back to Gear Reviews

Contrary to popular belief, Arizona is not just a dry, desolate desert. Rain and snow have been abundant this winter in the desert southwest. Recently, half the state was covered in snow. Satellite Image Medium 2019 02 23 1800 1024x797 GOES West GOES 17 satellite

Prior to that, a warmer storm passed through melting the lower elevation snowpack causing flash flooding throughout the state. It’s been a wet muddy mess no matter where you were heading out to explore. Compared to the droughts we’ve had years prior, we’ll take every drop!  It’s nice to see our lakes and reservoirs filled up.

Keeping our feet warm and dry may seem like an oxymoron of sorts given we live in the desert, but truth be told our Bridger Mid Waterproofs have received non-stop action this winter for both my son and me. Playing in the snow Bridger Mid Waterproof Father Son and Juniper Low Hydro Mother

As the temperatures began to rise and the soil dried, having a breathable option to wear on the trail was a welcomed treat this season. The Bridger Vent Mid did not disappoint. It had the classic Bridger's comfort and kept our feet as dry as the creeks and washes. Bridger Vent Mid Traction

The Bridger Vent Mid Waterproof has impeccable traction, too!

On days like this, the Bridger Vent Mid Waterproof kept feet dry and comfortable.

Bonus: anytime you can slip on a boot and it feels like your foot is wrapped up in a pillow is just plain nonsense, and that’s the best way I can explain wearing either boot. 

The tough decision to make now is which pair I’ll wear in a few weeks as we drop into the Grand Canyon on an eight-day adventure!
