AT 160g THE MONTANE PRISM BOOTIES CRUSH DOWN TO PREWARM IN A POCKET, THEN INSULATE YOUR INEVITABLY BOOT-TORTURED FEET SO THEY ARE IN TOP CONDITION. Whether you're just getting started or an experienced climber, whatever your adventure needs, we have the gear. I'm a footwear designer, and I have designed a couple of these types of indoor booties myself, and I have to say these are fantastic. PrimaLoft® GOLD Insulation with Grip in the inner sole panel provides better stability and prevents insulation slipping. Pertex®’s approach closely matches Montane’s own focus of engineering lightweight, breathable clothing and equipment for endurance sports in extreme environments.The following photo shows that the bottom of the sole is dependent on the Hypalon “sticky rubber” composing the sole. My initial walks around the house, onto the patio, and up and down the fairly steep stairs showed that the Montanes fit as expected with no excess slippage and no floppiness that would allow walking out of them. The next photo shows the stuff sack with both booties stuffed inside with a ruler to show the compact size and tiny amount of space they would take in an ultralight backpack. The sole is made of good material and should handle most surfaces without issue as it is durable material. The sole is made from tough Hypalon which extends up onto the Bootie upper for some added durability.

As can be seen in the photo, the two ends of the elastic were wrapped together in some cloth and stitched together (by hand? The ultra-fine fibres form tiny air pockets that mimic the compressibility of goose down, trap body heat and are breathable, allowing moisture vapor to be transported through and away from the skin. They are not as thick as my Baffin Boots and so not as warm, but they have rubber soles, whereas my Baffin Boots had polyester soles.

If I need to go for a short walk in the middle of the night in the snow, I do not want to have to struggle into my boots. Where product tags have been removed, even if they have been re-attached, Mountain Kit will not be able to refund the product. The inner sole also features PrimaLoft® GOLD Insulation, but with added grip control to prevent the insulation slipping and help provide better stability. Since there was enough insulation to keep my feet somewhat cool (vs taking the booties off and finding the hot stone sent me scurrying for the shaded part of the stonework quickly — unusual for someone who occasionally walks on coals), I concluded that the booties would pass the snow-walk test.
