"The Chota "Quetico Trekker" is a top seller, being a knee-high rubber or neoprene boot which laces tight up top to stop water flooding in. But they also get hot and uncomfortable to wear if the weather warms up and can create a nasty case of stinky feet. "

Unless Chota has changed their lineup, the Quetico Trekkers are a leather and mesh constructed ankle high boot, not of rubber or neoprene construction. In years past, one could use a "Brookie" inner liner with the QTs that did in fact go up to your knees, but these were only used during cold water/cold weather seasons. I use smartwool socks with my QTs during warm weather and find them completely comfortable.

Note: The Quetico Trekker is actually an ankle high hiking boot made especially for portaging with drains built end. It can be paired with neoprene water "socks" to give you waterproof footwear, but it is not "knee high" as the article states.
