Hiking, Trekking, Backpacking
If you haven't heard of GORE-TEX by now, you've probably been living under a rock. And that would make sense, because living under a rock is probably the only place where you wouldn't need the durable waterproof and windproof protection that GORE-TEX fabrics offer. So when you're ready to venture out from under your rock, arm yourself with the comfortable protection of GORE-TEX.

Comfortable and durableI work as a field biologist and hike several days a week. Much of the hiking I do is off trail and in steep terrain so I'm hard on boots. These boots are the most comfortable leather hiking boot I have ever worn. No breaking in time needed. This is the second pair of these I've owned and have recommended them to colleagues.

My favorite boots for tough outdoor activitiesI love these boots! I've bought Zs before and beat them up all over Idaho's granite talus and scree with no problems. I use them on multi-day backpacks carrying heavy loads (I'm not quite at the ultralight stage...maybe someday..). These stand up to rain and snow (I do wear gaiters in inclement weather), rocks, and backcountry bushwacking. They are relatively light for an all-leather boot. I like the one-piece leather design that eliminates snow or rain seeping into the boot. The ankle height is perfect support and does not leave abrasions that are sometimes common with this height of boot. The vibram soles on this model are tough enough to climb serious sustained class 3 scrambles. I wear an 8.5 US shoe, but prefer the 41 (size 9 women's) for this boot. I also have a pair of Zs (mostly retired) that are more of a day hike boot. I prefer this model for the tougher outdoor activities.
