Mammut Teton GTX 2011

The Mammut Teton GTX weighs 1584g (pair, size 11); leather and fabric upper; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; Vibram sole with aggressive pattern of lugs and good stiffness; firm toe box with good rubber rand for durability. But not quite as good as other boots in its price bracket; a slightly more pronounced heel breast may offer advantages when descending slopes.

The Mammut Teton GTX is a great boot for general hill-walking, although others just pipped it for performance at this price.
