User Review: Danner Mountain Light II
Materials: leather outer, gore-tex lining
Use: backpacking in the sierras, backpacking the rockies, and work in chemicals
Break-in Period: 3 months due to wrong socks
Price Paid: $210
When I first bought these boots I had no idea what I was buying, I simply thought they looked tough. After years of hiking and working in the worst conditions I am glad I ended up with these as I am sure no other boot would have lasted this long.
They did take a significant time to break in, but once I found the right socks, they rocked. I have abused these boots and not maintained them (resoling and oiling) and am extremely sad to see these go. They have torn at the stitching and yet have still kept my feet dry for a year. I think I may cry when I must retire these friends.
