User Review: Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator Mid
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $100
These boots have done it all for me including taking me up to the top of Iztaccihuatl's glacier in Mexico (17,000+ feet).
- All purpose
- Probably not great for EXTREME cold
I'll start by saying I don't necessarily always use products by the book and tend to make things work outside of what they're necessarily meant for. However, I've had these boots for 2 years now and they've really done it all for me!
The Goretex, which I had previously read "wears out," has been amazing and has always kept my feet dry even in creek crossings (I just wouldn't go trudging through water, but for a slip up here and there they've kept my socks dry!).
They're great for hot weather with their breathability, and I've also managed to use them quite successfully in cold weather as well. I'll note that their cold weather use has been limited to late fall in the U.S. Midwest, so maybe down to just below freezing at night... and an Iztaccihuatl trip in Mexico which does have a permanent glacier and requires crampons, however the summit was not EXTREMELY cold either.
