User Review: Garmont Men's Syncro Plus GTX
Materials: all leather Gore-tex
Use: one night over-nighters, mid-weight pack
Break-in Period: 2 hikes
Weight: very light for what you get
Price Paid: $200
These boots are great for single day hikes or just one night over-nighters. They don't take long to break in but they don't pack out or loose padding very fast. Completely waterproof mid range warmth, but with good wool socks are plenty warm for hiking in snow at around 20-30 degrees. Overall excellent traction and good tread life.
