I'm also a backpacker and would recommend these for all but the toughest hikes.
I've yet to use them in inclement weather as I have so many other light and medium duty hiking boots, but just from how they feel and how they are constructed, I doubt they'll do badly. They vent well so my feet stay dry, and they look great. Tread grip is typical for the type, especially being so new.
The one concern I was wary of were the two top lace metal grooves above ankle height. I've had boots that had similar lace grooves, and they were made of thin gauge stamped metal most of the time, and they would end up breaking off after a few months of wear due to metal fatigue and stress. The lace grooves on this boot are of a somewhat heavier gauge and they aren't stamped either. I doubt I'll have a similar problem with them as I have experienced in the past, but if I do, I'll definitely post about it here.
The Timberline Chicorua boots are sturdy, comfortable and waterproof. I had owned a pair of the slightly less expense Timberland White Ledge boots for over 4 years which have identical bottom and I loved them. For my replacement boots I decided to move up to the next model in the line, the Chicorua, because of the slightly taller support around the ankle and the Gore-Tex membrane which makes them more breathable. My first test was a 4 mile mountain hike over rocky terrain and they felt great without any previous break-in period. I have now used them for backcountry hiking up rough terrain in the White Mountains and Acadia National Park on a 10 day trip and my feet never felt better during or after the hike - no complaints at all, these are the best boots I ever owned!!!
Tip 1: As soon as you get these boots rub the leather with some mink oil and repeat a few times year. This will keep them waterproof and insure the leather doesn't dry or crack and will extend their useful life. I did this with my last pair of Timberlines and the leather still looks great after over 4 years.
Tip 2: For serious hikes do not use cheap cotton socks. Instead either use wool socks in winter or Hiking Socks.Read more ›
Side note I've been wearing Timberland workbooks for the past 6 months with punched eyelets and have had no problems.

Fit was good but not comfortable for all day use. Even with really good inserts. After all day doing construction they hurt my feet. Gonna go back to my Columbia boots.Published 2 months ago by S. Turner
the boots were a little uncomfortable around my ankles when I put them on but after a couple of steps they were fine. They didn't need any extensive breaking in.Published 4 months ago by Edward A.
These are great boots for the money. I use a Powerstep 3/4 orthotic with them and can wear them all day. Keep my feet warm and dry.Published 16 months ago by Hugh W.
