The Bogs Women's Summit rain boot is a super lightweight, packable neoprene boot, but unfortunately the pair that we tested was not fully waterproof. We're not sure if it was simply bad luck that our right boot leaked, or if it's a common problem. We loved the lightweight feel and movable comfort of this product and we were on the verge of giving it one of our awards when we started noticing a bit of moisture inside. After a series of tests that you can read about below, we discovered that one of our boots had a major leak. Other women have reported similar experiences in online reviews. If you need a semi-warm boot for dry conditions that is lightweight and compact, the Bogs Summit may meet your needs. Keep in mind, however, that this boot is not especially breathable, so moisture can easily build up from the inside-out if you're moving a lot, or if you have sweaty feet. In this case, you may want to cruise over to our women's winter boots review and check out some of the products there. If you plan to be outdoors in wet conditions for extended periods of time (which we assume you are, since you're looking at a rain boot review!), we suggest purchasing a different product.
Love the handles on the Summit but want a boot with more weather protection? Our Editors' Choice winner, the Bogs North Hampton - Women's is a stellar choice with those same easy-to-use handles.
Bogs informed us that this boot is slated to be discontinued and, while it's still available on their website, they are currently just selling off extra inventory. If you want to pick up this boot, now is a great time, because the price is pretty deeply discounted!
