Size and fit

This winter hiking boot is available for female adventurers in a range of whole and half sizes. It comes in a regular width profile. The gear’s lace-up closure system offers a personalized lockdown to the user. It also runs generally true to size.

Delivers multi-directional grip 

Supplying the Oboz’ Bridger 9” Insulated BDRy with traction is its Granite Peak outsole. Its winterized rubber design is engineered to be soft so it won’t freeze up in frigid temperatures. The outsole’s surface is filled with aggressive lugs that deliver multi-directional grip on ice and snowy terrain. Moreover, there are grooves in the heel section which grant braking power in downhill conditions.

Lightweight and flexible

The Oboz Bridger 9” Insulated BDry is equipped with the Granite Peak midsole to create a cushioned and stabilized ride. It’s made of EVA foam to achieve a balance between lightness and flexibility. A nylon shank is embedded between the midsole’s heel and forefoot sections to give extra support. It also prevents the footwear from twisting or contorting over uneven surfaces.

Delivers a boost in underfoot protection

Adding more stability to this footwear is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) chassis. It also delivers a boost in underfoot protection. 

Excellent arch support

An O Fit thermal footbed is used to improve cushioning and arch support. It uses a felt wool top layer and a Mylar base to retain heat in a cold environment.

Insulated upper

Making the Oboz Bridger 9” Insulated BDry look rugged is its nubuck leather upper. It is lined with 400g of 3M Thinsulate to trap heat inside the boot. A BDry membrane is also locked up within the upper to seal water out while maintaining breathability.

Secure fit

This winter hiker features a molded rubber toe cap out front and a heel kick in the rear. The former protects the toes from stubbing while the latter helps lock the user’s heel. The boot’s closure system employs several eyelets and hooks for fit management. This Oboz product also features a D-Ring in its upper to make gaiter attachment possible.
