hey everybody Louise skeeball here from Power mods first place parts sent us all of these boots to try out and let you know what we think about them now we did a little bit of testing we're gonna tell you how they stacked up yes they're a little bit dirty in our table here's a little bit dirty but you know we got to try things out and let you know how they work before we did anything we took the boots place them in the old tank of truth there and we were gonna leave them in for a few days and we kind of forgot them kind of last a little longer a week went by and then maybe two and three and almost a month so some boots fared out better than others and of all these boots which ones do you think were waterproof of all these boots only one pair really remained waterproof over the whole course of the three to four weeks that we had them in and it was these Castle x-force boots the least expensive in the bunch at 159 dollars at the time of this video they kept the water out the motor fish stompers mildly got a little damp after four weeks almost the to climb boots let water in after about three days and the backshift boots by FX r they didn't last very long at all but day or two and there was definitely water inside these boots now the good thing about the FX are boots they have a removable liner you can just pop em out put them on a vent and they'll dry out pretty quickly for you I know the waterproof test here in a tank is a little bit silly who's gonna stand in the rain or stand in the water the puddle for a month it's not gonna really happen they're not scuba diving the boots but you know we just wanted to test out and just to see how long things would last price from about 150 dollars to 250 dollars guaranteed one of these pair of boots is gonna work just right for you now out of this sample of boots that we have I found that they're more or less two different styles of boot one is more like a work boot style and the other is more like a snowboard style it's a little stiffer it's a little bulkier but those are the boots that generally keep you warmer the ability for a boot to keep you warm really depends on how active you are inside it and the type of person you are my feet get cold on just about any kind of day and I need the warmest boot I can get unless I really start working hard if I wear something like the stomper here and I'm for 100 kilometers and I'm not really active my feet are gonna get cold on a day that's minus 15 or colder that's just the way it is I'll get off the sled I'll start to move around and then I'll be ok again but if I try something like the Arctic GTX by climb it's gonna keep me a little bit warmer for longer but eventually you know what if I'm not moving around I'm still gonna get cold and that's just the reality of snowmobiling generally speaking the more work boot style that you have it's gonna have less insulation these have about 600 grams of Thinsulate in the stomper and the Arctic GTX here have about 1,200 grams the adrenaline GTX boots by climb have about 600 grams as well these FX are back shift boots were actually quite warm one of the fellas found that he really liked them he liked the way they fit but one of the other guys in our crew found them to be a little too stiff so it basically boils down to rider preference now generally speaking anything over 200 dollars in this lineup is gonna get you a very high-quality boot something you're gonna be happy with it's gonna keep you warm and dry and the comfort level is gonna be right up there anything under that you know what you're gonna get what you pay for might not be as comfortable but still might do the trick for you sometimes we have to worry about budget and that's just the way it is so that's the way I see these boots you know the drill when you want to check out these boots or any of this other gear that we've been looking at and testing make sure you take a look at first-place parts tell them Louise from power mod Sencha don't forget to check us out on Facebook and on YouTube give us a big ol thumbs up thanks for watching you
