Abstract
A series of laboratory and field trials was conducted to compare standard permeable CF mukluks and experimental impermeable mukluks with respect to comfort, moisture accumulation due to foot perspiration and techniques for use. It was found that if properly dried overnight, there was little difference between the two types of mukluk. However, it was shown that conditions inside a tent in the field in winter are such that drying is very difficult and moisture accumulation over an extended period of time may cause significant problems with either type of footwear. No subjective differences between permeable and impermeable mukluks were observed.
