The Woman's Moraine is more than a heavy duty backpacking boot. Since it will take you any where you want to go, 'backcountry boot' is more fitting. The heal welt is specifically designed for use with hybrid crampons. Montrail’s Integrafit system provides greater stabilization of your foot and increased comfort. Protective rubber toe rand extends the life of the boot. Roomy toe box leaves toes free to wiggle and positive heel lock reduces friction due to slippage. One-piece, seamless, waterproof 3mm full-grain leather upper. Designed for extended, heavyweight backpacking and more.
The Moraine has been part of the Montrail line since the beginning. Its traditional Italian construction and materials have made it a classic in the backpacking world. The boot has evolved over the years and is now considered suitable for extended backpacking to light mountaineering. The heavy-duty uppers and burley sole make it durable for long-hauls and supportive enough to carry heavy loads.The upper is hinged at the ankle allowing good forward flex while still retaining lateral stability. A molded tongue overlay distributes the lace pressure evenly, letting you tighten the laces over the instep and ankle to improve heel lock, without feeling the laces bite into sensitive areas of your feet.

If you have the patience, disposable income and tolerance for pain, you can endure the blistering pain of a dozen or more hiking and mountaineering boots before realizing that some boots feel better on inclines while others offer the best support on flat and compacted trail surfaces. Until now, the goal was to spend as little money as possible seeking out the boot that did both things moderately well--and then buying several pairs to last throughout your lifetime. Montrail made things easier for everyone when they introduced their mountaineering-oriented Moraine. Along the waterproof 3-mm. upper is a hinged design that allows for forward flex on ascents and descents--a dividend that pays off huge when you're confronting a dozen miles of rocky switchbacks. The molded 3-D tongue distributes lace pressure evenly across the top of your foot while the tapered collar enhances comfort on long hauls. The Vibram Moraine sole is molded to accommodate both strap-on and hybrid crampons. No pain, all gain. Sometimes progress is a great thing.
