The Helly Hansen Midsund 2 claims that it "effortlessly combines style, comfort, and weather protection." Naturally, we were excited to test this pair of rain boots out in the rain and around town. After testing the Midsund 2 for several months, we found that it was extremely easy to slide on and off, and that it fared much better than its insulated competitors when the weather turned warm. However, we failed to see the other claimed benefits of this rather basic rubber boot. Although we usually appreciate simplicity, this rain boot didn't stack up to the rest in our scoring metrics. We much preferred the Helly Hansen Veierland 2 which took home a Top Pick award for mild weather.
