So what's to do when you find a great trail shoe, it lasts all summer during your travels, your walks and your hiking, and the weather turns rainy? The mesh on my Montrail Fluid Balance shoes was not going to keep the water and mud out. But the fit was great so I wanted another pair that would make my feet feel good even after a 10 or 11k walk.
So I was pleased to see that Montrail offered a waterproof version called the Bajada Outdry Trail Runner. This shoe has OutDry brand waterproofing. I found that Columbia Sportswear actually owns OutDry and uses the technology in many of their products.
So I look forward to dry feet while sloshing down the trails of the Pacific Northwest and walking the streets during events such as the Portland Christmas Ships Walk.
