Haglöfs Solid Lite GTX 2011

The Haglöfs Solid Lite GTX weighs 1848g (pair, size 11); stitch-free leather upper for maximum durability; rubber rand for further durability; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; solid toe box; deep lugs for grip; stiff sole unit ideal for rocky ground; good cushioning; supportive and mouldable SOLE footbed. But other boots are lighter and lower in price; outsole may clog easier than some others with more widely spaced lugs.

The Haglöfs Solid Lite GTX is a superb boot that is ideal for general hill and mountain walking, but others are lower in price.
