User Review: Montrail Men's Torre GTX
Use: Long dayhikes on rocky trails and forest trails in the mountains.
Break-in Period: One week of wear indoors, then off I went.
Weight: 3.5 Lbs. per pair.
Price Paid: $150
Actually, I have two pairs of these boots, one that was purchased new at REI, and another used pair purchased at REI's return sale. These boots are strong enough to handle very rocky trails, but are also fairly light. I have hiked mostly in Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico with these boots, so don't know much about the Gore-tex feature. They fit me well enough right out of the box that I hiked a 3 mile trail a couple days after the indoor break in. I really don't like the fabric boot liner out of general principles, but it hasn't given me problems yet.
