Sorel Alpha Pac: Hiking Boots Review

This is the warmest boot we tested this year (rated to 60 below zero). The key is a removable, quick-dry felt liner, with an inner heat-reflective layer that also helps draws moisture out of the boot, plus the mid-calf height keeps the snow out with the pull of a strap. The only catch: Ankle support is not as good as with the company's classic boots.
