I bought this pair of boots in a trip to Germany. A friend of mine living in such country took me to the Jack Wolfskin store in Münster, which I wasn’t aware of.
At the beginning, I didn't give a bit for them, however the price was accessible to my pocket, so I decided to take them with me, plus the short trying that I did in the store that confirmed that were comfortable.
Then, when I arrived into my country, I started to do some hiking into rough terrain, and it was a surprise to me when I realized the truly boot’s performance.
They were comfortable, light, and had good traction. Vibram sole was good and resistant. They felt pretty much like sneakers.
Good for light hiking/trekking with less than 35 lbs backpacks. No GTX, nor water resistant features. Thin insole that may be replaced by a thicker one plus proper socking layering.
