Sawtooth Low

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Used them for hiking in very rough hot terrain of North West Australia. Initially great, but once they got wet they seemed to shrink to where I could not wear them. Purchased on line after a review of the boots. I used them in the northwest of Australia where the ground gets very hot—65 degrees Celsius. Mainly used hiking on large loose boulders as well as grassed surfaces when paragliding. Great traction! Were not waterproof at all, but gave very good ventilation and kept my feet cool which… Full review

Sawtooth Low

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Rock solid gripping sole. Just feel the give in a Merrell sole compared to these and you will never go back. They offer the quick drying Oboz Sawtooth Low and the BDry version with more waterproofing. I opted for the former and am truly a happy hiker. These shoes are an excellent backpacking or trail shoe.

I figured when I got wet my shoes needed to dry quick… Full review

Traverse Low

rated 5 of 5 stars For a durable, lightweight shoe that is ready to take whatever terrain you throw at it, look no further than the Oboz Traverse Low.

Wearing size 13 can sometimes… Full review

Bridger BDry

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought these boots based upon recommendations from the staff at REI. I used them during a weekend camp out with the Boy Scouts and cannot be happier with them. They felt broken in from the moment I put them on and stayed comfortable over the next 36 hours. My feet stayed dry and the arch support was excellent. Definitely recommend them. Full review

Yellowstone II

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I am overall satisfied with this shoe. It is rugged, breaks in well, and is mostly comfortable. I believe they run a little narrower than I expected. I find these shoes are mostly comfortable and are very rugged. I have beat them up good and they are holding up well under colorado hiking conditions. They have good traction and are very water resistant. Only downside is a little narrow in the toe area. Full review
