Here's an eclectic selection of gifts for dad. Some are humorous, some are heartfelt, some are useful, and some are just cool.
Nonetheless, more useful by far are the built-in snow gaiters. I need boots I can sip on and off often. The problem isn't just walking through deep snow but walking through ankle-deep snow. The action of walking kicks snow up around the tops of my boots, and then I get to enjoy the icy cold trickling down to my feet. With the built in gaiters, I don’t have to put on external gaiters. The built-in gaiters keep the snow out, ankle or waist deep. No matter how deep the snow, my feet remained warm and dry.
The only time my feet got cold was at 20 below, when I drove into Frenchtown in my old Chevy knockabout truck without a heater. Although my feet chilled down, it was bearable.
