Altitude IV WP

rated 5 of 5 stars These boots are great for hiking. Recommend them. Very comfortable all round boots. Fit well, never had any blisters. Walked 3-7KM in them no probs. Grip well, keep feet dry, good hard soles keep feet snug and warm. Only downside is that they are very heavy.  Full review

Altitude IV WP

rated 1 of 5 stars For some bizarre reason the shoe base has a bump in the middle on the *outside* edge of the foot. Nobody has feet shaped like that. Your arch is on the *inside* edge of your foot—that's where you need support. I can imagine nothing but pain wearing this shoe for any distance. No thanks! It's possible that this could be corrected with replacement insoles, but the bump is part of the shoe design itself so I doubt it. Full review

V-Lite 2

rated 2 of 5 stars Had a similar experience, only on night 2 of a 3-day backpack trip. Very wet night. My sleeping bag, myself, and gear were completely soaked. Wondered if I would die of hypothermia on the Washington coast, but fortunately my sleeping bag still conserved a fair amount of heat even though soaked through and I had brought a bunch of Hot Hands packets, too. Still, not the ideal sleeping conditions. Full review

Magnum Tanker

rated 5 of 5 stars Most comfortable footwear I've ever worn. I'd love to find another pair! I found the boots in a Youth size. The fit was perfect for me. The boots were not authorized by the U.S. Army, but I blacked out the logo and wore them anyway for several years, in the field and in garrison. They were sturdy, supportive, relatively lightweight (and took a nice shine), and far more comfortable on long, hard days than any issue boots I ever had. I even wore them under a formal skirt when performing with a vocal… Full review

Skamania Mid WP

rated 3 of 5 stars Good comfy waterproof hiking boot. Sketchy quality control. Okay for backpacking, but with issues. I've used the men's version of Hi-Tec Skamania WP boots for over a year now, from day hiking to a 7-day backpack trip on the AT. The boots look good and are fairly lightweight for a hiking boot. The fit is a bit tight so I went up 1/2 size and fit was better. The first pair had a cracked shank after a short neighborhood walk. Sent back with no problems for replacement. With the second pair one of the… Full review
