Chris Petersonwrote a review of Lowa Trekker Backpacking Boot - Men's on October 18, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
These are my go-to off-trail or long trip boot. I wore them on 30 mile trip in the Collegiate Peaks this summer that took us off the trail and up and over the Divide. I also wear them elk hunting in CO. The leather is tough and does not scuff or scratch easily. The soles are grippy and have good traction,
I would consider these a good 'mid-duty' boot. They are stiffer than the majority of backpacking boots out there but not as stiff as a mountaineering boot.
