Helly Hansen Korktrekker 3 Low HT 2009

The Helly Hansen Korktrekker 3 Low HT multi-activity shoe weighs 908g (pair, size 11); Helly Tech waterproof lining; suede and synthetic upper; very comfy; outsole has reasonably aggressive lug pattern. But outsole tends to clog; upper very soft and flexible, and lacks protection or support of some others; toe box is soft; lining not as waterproof or as breathable as pricier options.

Verdict: The Helly Hansen Korktrekker 3 Low HT is a good basic waterproof shoe, but others have more benefits.
