Garmont's Women's Momentum Snow GTX uses GORE-TEX waterproof/breathable lining and 400 grams of thinsulate insulation. The Momentum Snow is going to be a great winter boot for snowshoeing or any long hikes in heavy snowfall. The exterior of the boot uses a leather and mesh combination construction. This offers durability in high-wear areas, but it also keeps the weight of the boot quite light. Under foot, you're going to find an EVA midsole for lightweight cushioning as well as a TPU spine which is basically a thermoplastic shank so this is offering better heel stability in the shoe as well as forefoot protection. Garmont uses bi-density rubbers for better grip on both hard and soft surfaces and their x-shaped traction design helps keeping your foot on snow, ice and even slippery mud. The Women's Momentum GTX does have a gusseted tongue. This does keep the front of the boot waterproof but also offers a nice wide opening so you can get your foot in there even with a thick sock. A really nice feature I like on this boot is that you do have this fleece cuff around the inside here as well as on the back of the tongue, so it's going to feel nice around the ankle. The lacing system here – you have two metal eyelets at the top that's attached to an actual piece of leather. This gives you some great ability to secure the fit around the ankle so you can adjust the toe and the ankle a little bit differently. And another really nice feature on the lacing system over all is that Garmont uses this real low-profile webbing system. What it lets you do is slide this boot in and out of a snowshoe binding without anything catching on any sort of metal eyelets or anything else that would be here. A final feature here would be this metal ring that's attached into the leather of the shoe as well. Assuming you're using this in the snow or while you're snowshoeing, you may be wearing a gaiter and this is a nice clip. A lot of gaiters have a metal hook at the front that would allow you to clip in directly to the shoe and hold that gaiter in place.
