Tioga 65

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A large pack that carries three days or more of equipment. I used this $50 internal frame pack that I bought at Big 5 to train for a one-week outing. For a three-day dry run I carried 38 lbs and the pack was comfortable. However when I took it loaded on a trip to Hawaii the baggage handler broke a buckle. Still I was able to tie the strap and continue my outing with no problem. Best money I've ever spent! Full review

V-Lite Altitude Ultra WPi

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent fit. Bought it for a trip to Nordkap (73 degrees North in the Arctic Circle) with temperatures at -25 degrees Celsius, deep snow in places. My feet never got wet nor cold. I bought these Hi-Tecs in 2014 to do a trip to Norway to go and experience the Aurora Borealis, nature's own pyrotechnics show.

MultiTerra Low

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Six months wear of MultiTerra Low boots and the soles fell off.

Soles glued to the uppers; poor glue quality, or poor workmanship or maybe a bit of both. So disappointed to think I had found a good make of shoe and to have them… Full review

Bryce II WP

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A low cost, entry level, low hiking boot. The HI-TEC Bryce 2 WP is an excellent low cost, entry level hiking, low cut boot.Straight from the box allowing a full size up this was a well fitting and comfortable boot. At first they were very stiff, feeling similar to a mountaineering boots. This wears off quickly and the sole especially become very flexible, stones and rocks were felt on rougher ground. After 40 km I added a different insole which was stiffer and thicker, this made a big difference… Full review

Altitude IV WP

rated 5 of 5 stars These boots are great for hiking. Recommend them. Very comfortable all round boots. Fit well, never had any blisters. Walked 3-7KM in them no probs. Grip well, keep feet dry, good hard soles keep feet snug and warm. Only downside is that they are very heavy.  Full review
