User Review: Merrell Men's Wind River
Materials: Leather upper, Vibram yellow label
Use: day hikes, backpacking
Break-in Period: 1-2 light days around the house
Weight: 3.5 lbs
Price Paid: $99.97
Due to the leather upper, this boot is a little heavier than its nylon counter parts. However, it provides more ankle support. The boot is awesome. Comfortable, lightweight for a "heavy weight" boot. If you are carrying extremely heavy loads you may want to purchase a heavier boot. However, for the 1-day to multi week backpacker/hiker, don't pass up this boot.
