Renegade II LL Lo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Long lasting shoes build Lowa quality! I typically use my shoes for approach and hikes. So I need a great support when carrying climbing gear. The Lowa Renegade have a polyurethane mid sole, which is heavier but will not collapse over time or under heavy load. They are made of nubuck (is top-grain cattleĀ leatherĀ that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, or outside, to give a slight nap of short protein fibers, producing a velvet-like), so they are warm. I even walk with them during winter… Full review

Baffin Pro LL II

rated 4 of 5 stars Tough boots for carrying heavy loads in warm or dry climates. They provide good ankle support and foot protection, and they are a great choice for backpackers. I've been using these boots for hiking, but also for wildland firefighting, which subjects boots to unique stresses. Still, I think my experience is relevant to outdoor sports, especially backpacking and hunting, where people carry heavy loads in rough terrain and can be on their feet from sunrise to sunset. That experience has made me a… Full review

Tibet GTX

rated 2 of 5 stars These are the most comfortable boots I have ever had on my feet. BUT....they leak. These are the most comfortable boots I have ever had on my feet. BUT.... After about a month they leaked. The bottom of my right foot started to get a bit wet when hiking on wet terrain, and within three months of having owned the boots I had to dry the boot out with newspaper stuffed inside the boot after nearly every use. I contacted Lowa and despite it only being three months in they were very hesitant to help. Full review

Renegade GTX Mid

rated 3 of 5 stars Soles not durable (but this may be a weight-related issue. See the detailed review). My wife and I both purchased these boots on the same day, and covered exactly the same mileage. They have been used for a mix of average-hill and some extreme-slope walking. I would not use these on extreme rocky and loose surfaces because the level of grip is not that good. After two years, hers are still fresh and intact on the soles, whilst the soles on mine are very badly degraded (edge lugs crumbling and breaking… Full review

Tibet GTX

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Quality, durability, comfort, and protection. Very good three-season backpacking boot as long as it fits! Toe box could be bigger, I was surprised to lose a toenail after a rough tip on the Lost Coast in N. California. I would recommend these. I am mostly satisfied with them. These were closeouts so I may have an earlier version of these boots. I thought the fit was fine with no blisters or issues until I lost a toenail on a long rough trip (for me). I have stuffed tennis balls in the toe boxes… Full review
