User Review: Garmont Men's Tower GTX
Use: from short day hikes to multi-day mountaineering
Weight: Not an issue for me as long as they perform
Price Paid: bought used from friend
I put these boots through the ringer this summer (06) from day long slogs in rain and mud to all day glacier climbs. I have never had boots keep my feet dry like the Tower GTX. Other boots I've had with Gore-Tex liners eventually soak through and at the end of the day my feet are soaked. These boots kept me dry no matter what conditions I've subjected them to. Somehow Garmont figured out how to create a breathable boot that works. They are also incredible on class 3 and 4 terrain. The sole provides excellent smear capability and are stiff enough to give excellent edging stability. Very comfortable!
