Alaska GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars AWESOME B1 rated boot, supportive, stiff, and great for scrambles! I have now used this boot extensively including for a light low level hike (30 odd km) and then up and down Tryfan in Wales, UK, even on the eastern traverse (tending more towards grade 2+ scrambling and rock climbing). It performed excellently!  To the stiffness 'problem' person, the likelihood is that the boot doesn't fit your foot shape at all, in which case of course they won't be comfortable. For your foot to flex 'with' the… Full review

Alaska GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars The Alaska GTX is my second pair of Hanwags. I am on a budget so I waited, off and on, for six years on ebay for a size 10.5. My first is a pair of Norwegian-welt Mountains purchased in 1977. They (the Mountains) are beginning to separate so cannot be dependable on the trail. They are still completely usable and are used often 3 season. Why Hanwags? Getting to the summit is an option — getting down is mandatory. They are a piece of my kit that has never failed or let me down. Being of German origin… Full review

Alaska GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars A nice boot and it gives wonderful support for the ankles. The only unsatisfactory remark I have concerning this boot is when the weather is slippery. In a slippery weather I think boots from LacCosse gives a better foothold. Full review

Alaska Lady GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Review for women's alaska gtx boots. I bought these boots 3 years ago in advance of a Nepal trekking tour.

I treat the boots with a waterproofer designed for goretex leather boots regularly, and the boots have never leaked. Although they are not designed for winter usage, I also use them for winter activities. With a thick pair of socks, my… Full review

Alaska GTX

rated 3 of 5 stars This boot appears to be made from top grade materials (the only reason I gave it 3 stars not 2). The sole of this boot does NOT flex. I wore the boots for 6 weeks at work and around the house to break them in to my feet. The real test was scouting for an upcoming elk hunt. Hiking on uneven, rocky ground I found that because of the No-flex soles, my foot would flex but the boot would not, causing irritation spots on both heels. after 1 average day in the field I will not be wearing these boots again.
