A lightweight 3-season boot weighing 1584g (pair, size 11). Synthetic upper keeps price down. Gore-Tex waterproof lining and very supportive upper for rough ground; solid toe box and very stiff sole unit ideal for rocky ground; good lug pattern. However, many boots at this price are leather offering greater durability; others are lighter; some boots have a more pronounced heel breast.
Verdict: A great, supportive boot for valley, hill and moorland walking, but other boots on the market have the edge.
