Aigle Vento XCR

A 3-season boot that features Gore-Tex XCR waterproof lining ( more breathable than standard Gore-Tex); very lightweight; rubber toe bumper for durability; stiff and supportive heel cup; low ankle cuff increases comfort; stiff sole unit for rocky paths. But outsole lug pattern is not as aggressive as some; low ankle cuff provides less support and protection than higher versions; synthetic upper is not as durable as leather.

Verdict: Buy it if you are sticking to the valley or easier hill paths and want a very lightweight waterproof boot.
