For wet conditions, you need the proper gear. When it's beautifully crafted, so much the better. The Field Boot has a waterproof, injection-molded EVA shell; 20% lighter than conventional rubber compounds, more flexible, more comfortable, and a better insulator against chilly wet conditions. They added some signature Quoddy handsewn details because...that's what they do. The grippy rubber sole has a siping pattern to aid wet surface traction.
The rubber it's a little different than you would find on maybe an LL Bean duck boot, a bit lighter, so we'll see how durability goes. It is quite comfortable though and has good traction from the little bit that I put it through. Have it tested the waterproofness of the boot yet. The construction seems to be on point and I anticipate the boot lasting a while.
