Anatom V3 2011

The Anatom V3 weighs 1524g (pair, size 11); suede leather and synthetic upper; Tri.aria waterproof lining; Vibram sole unit with good, deep lugs for grip and wide spacing to prevent clogging. But sole unit is surprisingly bendy, limiting performance on rockier ground; boots with less stitching may be more durable; lambswool footbed is not as comfy as standard footbeds; toe box is relatively soft.

For the price the Anatom V3 is a good choice for valley walks, but there are better boots for hill-walkers.
