Boots for Niku
« on: May 29, 2015, 04:41:58 PM »

After hearing how treacherous walking on the reef at Niku can be, I was intrigued by a boot listed in a Patagonia catalog marketed for fishermen who wade in rocky and muddy streams. It's called the Foot Tractor Wading Boot. The unique feature is a series of soft aluminum bars on the sole that grip slippery surfaces.

A similar product that fits over existing footwear is the Ultralight River Crampons

Members of the onshore team might consider purchasing a pair. Even better would be if Patagonia would donate several pair. (Yes, I know time is short.)

Happy hunting.
