Brand: High Top
Overall Score: 4.5 / 5
These water-resistant mids are lined with Thinsulate, making them warm enough for temps in the 20s. True to their name, Pakems mash together, upper to upper, to pack down to less than 2 inches thick. The ripstop uppers keep slush and snow out, while an elastic lacing system can cinch and lock with a gloved hand. Bonus: With the included fanny pack, you can easily lash the Pakems to a pack or harness.
