“They fit perfectly, are super comfy and really light.”

Product: Billabong Furnace Pro 3mm Bootie
Price: $69.99

Features: Furnace lining throughout the inside which makes them super warm and quick to dry, single strap to tighten them, fully sealed seams & no sole on bottom to increase flexibility and comfort.

Overview: I enjoyed the comfort of these booties and used them during my stint in Portugal and Morocco during their last winter. I chose them over their competitors due to the fit and the comfort and they also worked great back at home through our winter.

Warmth: Furnace lining – I love it; feels as warm as an extra 1mm without losing flexibility. 3mm is plenty of warm for NSW winters, however I’d probably take something even thicker back to Portugal.

  • Super flexible
  • Quick to dry
  • So easy to get on and off


  • No thick soles minimised the durability in Portugal and Morocco when walking over rocks all the time. No such issues for beach use at home however
