Sorel Out N About Chelsea-W Cold Weather Boot

 

Best Waterproof Duck Boots

 

Half rubber boot, half duck canvas, with a warm and cozy interior are the traditional requirements for the practical duck boot.

One of the reasons why duck boots may be the best waterproof boots for your trip is that they’re smaller and therefore more packable than tall boots. We’ll let you be the judge.

Sorel’s cold weather footwear is ideal for those participating in active winter sports like snowmobiling or sledding, or for activities where maximum protection is required — like all-season hunting or fishing, or simply going to work.

Their Out N About boot is a great option if you prefer ankle boots. They offer a convenient lace-up style with a vulcanized rubber compound for improved wet traction. Buy it here!

Sperry Top-Sider Saltwater Boot

 

For a classic duck boot, you can’t go wrong with the Sperry Top-Sider Saltwater boot. It’s arguably the most popular duck boot for daily wear in rainy seasons and during travel.

With rawhide lacing for a secure fit and Wave-Siping for ultimate wet/dry traction, this versatile boot is ready for storm and sea. Buy it here!

Chooka Solid Packable Rain Boot

 

Best Waterproof Rain Boots

 

The most popular waterproof boots for women is the rubber rain boot. A wardrobe staple in notoriously wet areas, most people are familiar with the very popular Hunter brand boots.

If you are looking for something a little different, two brands, Joules and Mela, have taken wellies to the next level by adding patterns, embellishments, and buckles. However, these boots are not packable.

For another classic rain boot style that is packable, we like the Chooka rain boot. These waterproof boots are made of a rubber compound that allows you to fold them right up and store in a suitcase or shoe bag!

For comfort, they feature a removable, lightweight insole/sock liner that also provides additional arch support. All of these features make the Packable boots a perfect travel companion. Buy it here!
