L.L.Bean: Gore-Tex Rain Pants & Gore-Tex Mountain Treads Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Katie #316!

Here is a company that is true to their word. All of L.L.Bean's products are guaranteed. This company settles for nothing less than the absolute best when it comes to customer service and selection. I am a huge fan of this company and feel they really deliver when it comes to supreme quality.

I received these Gore-Tex Mountain Treads, Mid Cut in their Dark Brown/Chocolate color combination. You can also get these in Graphite/Navy. Both colors look spectacular.


Take these boots out to the trail! They fit wonderfully and really support the ankle and foot well. The construction of these mountain treads is fantastic. They truly are some of the nicest boots I've seen in a long time. One look and you just know that they're well made. My husband thinks they are top notch.

We did end up going up a half size as they ran a bit small. The half size up ended up being perfect! Be sure to check out these boots in low cut, too.

From their website:

We looked to our experts – the men and women who wear our boots – to help us make these handcrafted waterproof hikers perform even better on and off the trail. We think you'll agree that their feedback has resulted in day hikers with the best performance and comfort we've offered yet. First, we gender tuned the rugged midsole and lasting board to offer the correct level of support, stability and flexibility with every step. We then added a more rugged Vibram® rubber outsole that grabs and brakes on even the most hardscrabble terrain. An upper of waterproof leather and breathable Air 8000 mesh is matched with a waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex® liner, helping your feet stay dry through everything from summer river crossings to treks in snow and ice. The improved Ortholite® sock liner has a special antimicrobial treatment and wicks moisture so feet stay drier on long hikes. The improved lacing system helps you get the most consistent fit, whether your foot width is AA or EE. Imported. Fit best with midweight socks.

The Stowaway Rain Pant with Gore-Tex is another wonderful product. These durable, waterproof pants are great for all of your outdoor activities.

My husband wore these on a fishing trip and really liked the fit and feel. Plus, they kept him nice and dry. These pants provide good ventilation and the deep zippers are a plus. They pants can easily be slipped over a pair jeans, shoes or boots.

From their website:

Waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex® Performance Shell nylon features a double-ripstop weave, making it twice as abrasion resistant as before. Inside, we added Mesh Zoning Technology™ – which puts larger-hole mesh where you tend to heat up and smaller-hole mesh where you don't – to enhance breathability and ventilation. Stows in its own pocket for easy portability. Scuff-guard hems with deep zippers for easy on/off over shoes. Drawcord waistband. Imported. Machine wash and dry.

L.L.Bean also offers clothing and footwear for women and kids. They carry a huge variety of outdoor gear, luggage and products for the home. THINK FATHER'S DAY!

L.L.Bean is offering a very exciting giveaway! One lucky reader will win their choice of the Gore-Tex Stowaway Rain Pants or the Gore-Tex Mountain Treads!

  50. When we go camping, invariably we end up using blankets on top of our sleeping bags, because it gets colder than we think it's going to be. One of the products I love on the L L Bean website is the Katahdin Primaloft Infinity Sleeping Bag, Mummy 20°, because it is such a warm bag that we probably wouldn't need the extra blankets!
