Hiking boot review: LOWA Vantage GTX Mid

Lowa vantage

The Lowa Vantage had enough spread in the toe-box to accommodate my wider foot without rubbing excessively on my big toe while maintaining a firm grip on my heel. Helpful Links If you are new to hiking, we are excited that you've taken interest in the outdoors and want to explore it! A lighter weight boot designed for the person who enjoys trekking, hiking and hunting in easier country, on trail and off and with the capability to handle a little more, when needed. Pre-owned: An item that has been used or worn previously. Adjusting the laces pretty much solved the problem and now the boots have formed to my feet. It also leads the pack for toe protection. Like I said earlier in the review the boots have shown little to no signs of wear since I have had them. I took them out of the box, clean and fresh and virginal, and climbed Mt.

Lowa Vantage GTX Wide Review

My arrived just in time for fall backpacking. So what does that exactly mean? The laces can also be locked off through the first set of hooks, allowing for a more personalised fit. One salesperson told me that his Renegades lasted him 1,200+ miles, where another told me that she's seen customers return them as the out-sole has come loose from the lower leather. Once above 12,000 feet in September at 6am in the morning there was a whole different wetness to worry about: frost-covered rocks. I wore these on two hiking trips and then got a new job where I now wear these 40 hours a week stocking merchandise and they are fantastic. With the Lowa flex lace system my feet stayed exactly in the same place even during some rather steep descents.

LOWA Pressmeldungen: Vantage GTX® Mid

These boots gripped well on a variety of terrain, including snow and rocks. I did a lot of ascents that day so I became very intimate with the performance of this stiff platform. This by far has been the wettest summer I can remember, but it made for fun adventures. We pretty much broke camp by mid-morning and walked all day. My foot stayed dry even though the boots were submerged to the laces.

Give it a try — you can cancel at any time. Lowa has been making footwear for almost a century now, and these guys know what they are doing. As for the summer and the warmer days on the trail, the foot never seemed to over heat. This closes the best offer layer and refreshes the page. I have no doubt the Vantages will kill it on a backpacking trip.

Lightweight and stable, these boots offer the walking comfort of light hiking boots, yet with the support and protection of backpacking boots. The combination of high-quality suede split leather with especially abrasion-resistant Cordura also perceptibly cuts weight. Ideal for carrying heavy 25+ Kg. I can't wait to take these on a long backpacking trip in September! I hope these boots hold up for a very long time because I have a lot of adventure still planned for them. I am trying to replace my merrel moabs which are too wimpy for 2-4 days backpacking but I only backpack 2-3 times a year— mostly day hike and these seem like a good option! Can you walk into a knee-deep lake or river and emerge on the other side with dry feet? On top of wet conditions I also used these boots under very heavy carry loads.

Women's Hiking Boots by Lowa, Salewa, Danner

The boots have a flex lacing system which only utilizes the lower third of the boot with thru eye holes. The perforations let air into the boot and the action stepping down creates a pumping effect that pushes the hot air out. I use a heel lock lacing technique and sock liners. In that regard, the Lowa Vantage was a mixed bag for me. Aiming for puddles instead of stepping around them, skipping the snowshoes, as well as sloshing through the mud helped me to feel like a little kid again. I like the toe box as it has just the right amount of space to keep them happy even with sustained down hill walking with all my gear.

These boots went on like a glove and after some time standing, walking, climbing and milling about - still that same glove as when I put them on.
