We've seen a slew of clunky winter boots at OR this year, but Teva broke the mold with its waterproof Chair 5. The packable boot is one of the lightest on the market, but with 250 grams of 3M Thinsulate insulation, it's plenty warm. The removable inner bootie works great as a slipper for kicking around the cabin, and has enough traction to get you across that slippery deck and into the hot tub. Come nightfall, the relaxed-fitting upper and low-profile sole give the Chair 5 a casual look that will fit right in at the bar. 1 lb, 2.8 oz. Available August 2012.
