    A classic, reborn.

    Originally debuting in the 80's as a lightweight alternative to Danner's classic, more heavy-duty hiking boots, the Women's Jag Hiking Boot is back and now being reintroduced as a more versatile version of its former self, for both urban and hiking adventures. Suede and canvas come together in the upper for lightweight comfort and reliable performance, while the Danner Dry lining delivers waterproof and breathable protection in case you get caught in an unexpected downpour. Highly cushioned, the Jag has a polyurethane Ortholite footbed to absorbs rocky terrain and fights off fatigue, and the external molded heel cup offers added support to prevent sprained ankles. Rounding out this do-anything hiker, a retro Danner waffle rubber outsole adapts to varying terrain, from rocky trails to slick pavement.

    • Versatile hiking boot for city and outdoor adventures
    • Waterproof lining keeps your foot dry
    • Suede and canvas uppers comforts and protects
    • Ortholite footbed cushions every step
    • External molded heel cup boosts support
    • Waffle rubber outsole grips a variety of surfaces
    • Item #DAN0028

    Love the Look

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I love the look of the boot but it just did not fit my foot right so I am returning this item. The retro vibe was what I was looking for but it needs to the right fit.

    Runs big

      I think I am going to like these but they run really big! I am almost always an 8.5. I currently have pregnancy feet so I ordered an 8.5, thinking they would fit like a 9 (based off the reviews). I would say they are more like a 9.5 so I am exchanging for a 8. Recommended sizing down a half size or two for sure!

      Perfection!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought these at the last minute for a trip to Namibia. I was looking for a versatile hiking boot that I could use to hike sand dunes in the blistering heat as well as kayak in the super cold south Atlantic. These were perfect! I sized up to a 8.5 because I normally need a 8w. I didn't experience any issues with the toe creasing that the other reviewers mentioned. The break-in period seemed quick, but I only wore them for a few short hikes and traveling on the plane. My feet did not overheat even in 104F weather. They also kept my feet pretty dry during some casual kayaking. Highly recommend as a versatile adventure travel boot.

      Disappointed

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      I love the look and was super excited about these but they dig into the top of your foot right above your toes when you walk and I can imagine that would be very painful after less than a mile of walking in these. I ended up going with the Danner Mountain 600 Hiking Boot and am very pleased with them.

      Great Hiking Boot

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have to say, I have had a very different experience with these boots than the reviews below! First, these boots were way lighter than I was expecting - possibly the lightest hiking boot I've had. All hiking boots take some breaking in and getting used to as these did, but i have yet to get terrible blisters or anything crazy from the couple of hikes I have done in these so far. I was most impressed with the support these offered considering their weight... can't stress enough how light and comfortable these are! Once broken in, are a great boot.

      How are these rated 4.9 stars?

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I've worn these a handful of times to try and get a feel for the boot on walks and such to break them in a little before wearing an extended period of time. All I can say is OUCH. The toe part of the shoe doesn't seem to have much give to it and every time I step, the top folds and pushes down on the top of my foot. Even going for a 1-2 mile walk in these is too much.. could not attempt to wear these two days in a row. Extremely sad because the fit is great and love the look of the shoe. Wish I could return.

      I will second the above comment with the following amendment: the right shoe felt totally fine. With the left shoe I experienced the above pain. There also seemed to be a flaw in the sewing on the inside ankle that poked my ankle on this same shoe. The comfort of the right shoe, however, made me think that this was a manufacturer's defect--which shouldn't be happening with this supposed "quality" of shoe. (To be clear, I have never experienced this difference in fit in right vs. left shoes before.)

      Same! I took these to Europe and limped for a few days because all of a sudden the fold of the right foot dug into the top of my foot! It felt bruised and very painful. Backcountry is going to send me a new pair, so we'll see how it works out. The left one is super comfortable so hopefully they work!

      Best Casual Winter Boots

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I'm a rural mail carrier and I've been looking for a tough, lightweight boot to wear on the route. These boots were absolutely perfect. They're waterproof and they keep my feet warm when I'm in the snow, and when I'm inside working they don't make my feet sweaty and hot. Took about two days to really break them in, but even when they were fresh out of the box they didn't give me any blisters. They grip well on ice with a light dusting of snow, but they do slip if you don't mind your step on straight ice.

      I did have a little trouble sizing. I always wear an 8 1/2 in women's, but an 8 1/2 was about 3/4" too big. Even with a thick sock on it was too big. I tried an 8 instead and that was perfect. If you're going to buy these boots, I'd recommend breaking out a ruler and measuring your foot in cm, then using the CM part of the size chart instead of the standard US sizes to pick the right boot. For example, I measured in at a dead 24 cm when I decided to math up and measure, which puts me at an 8, and it's perfect. I wouldn't worry too much about sizing up to fit thick socks, I wear wool socks every day and there's plenty of space to do so. My feet never feel cramped or uncomfortable.

      Comfort meets function

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These boots are rad. I got them for my wife for our trip to Scotland, where we knew we would be trekking through the mud in the highlands. They were absolutely perfect. They are comfortable enough to be on your feet for long periods of time, wash easily when they get caked in mud, and look awesome on. Total win. Buy some.

      Prettier in Person

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      These boots look nice in the pictures, but they are even prettier in person. The colors are vibrant. They're comfortable, but will need to be broken in. The arch support is there but isn't much. I also bought THREE sizes in these suckers because the sizing seemed to be different for each person. For me, they ran true to size. I'm a 9.5 in Vans and am a 9.5 in these. Thank goodness Backcountry does easy returns!

      I haven't fully used them yet but I am so excited to use them for my trip to Europe in March!

      The mountains are calling & you must go-

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      but first, make sure you have these boots. Hiking every day for 10 days through the Canadian Rockies was tough, but not on my feet. I sized down a 1/2 size, which was perfect. They kept my feet warm through a freak blizzard (in September!) and dry through multiple rainstorms. My only complaint is that the ankle runs wide at the mouth, so a few times, snow slid into the boot (easily avoidable if I had worn the correct pants or gaiters).

      Retro Style, Modern Comfort

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 7
      • Height: 5'6"
      • Weight: 133lbs

      I love my new Danners - these fit great out the gate and took a half a day of casual wear to break them in. I have hiked in streams and mud, and they've held up to the task. The tongue never slides because it is attached to the boot, but is still easy to move out of the way when putting them on. I have the red ones and have received so many compliments. Danner forever!

      love these boots

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      Climbed Kilimanjaro in these - they are awesome. Only broke them in on 3 short local hikes before Kili. Favorite pair of hiking boots I've ever worn... They are comfortable and lightweight like trail running shoes, but with the support/durability/warmth of a quality hiking boot. Haven't worn them in really wet conditions yet, but my feet stayed warm and dry during light rain. They are also super cute - which is an added bonus.

      I don't usually write reviews, but I love these boots so much - thought it was worth sharing. Highly recommend.

      Danner delight---but they SHRINK.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      See updated review on shrinkage.

      Yes. My husband and i have the same exact shoes. Why? Cause they are pretty awesome. Fit i would say runs big. Im a 7 and ended up returning the 7s for a 6.5 and could have even done 6 (changing my tune after they freaking shrunk) Toe room is round and ample (also a different tune after they shrunk...now my big toe is suffocating). Good arch and ankle support. No flashy colors allow for everyday wear for wandering around town, travel, hike etc etc. took these for a month around scandinavia and these were the only shoes i brought/needed (besides ski boots). I did put sheep skin liners for added warmth. Even in deep snow my feet stayed dry. A little cold when walking long distance in snow in cold weather. Comfy. Cool. Local made. Good buy.

      ***Update. I have warn my Danner Jag boots all over. I recently took them tramping in southern NZ and got in over 125 miles on these bad boys. With that sad, i am super bummed they SHRUNK!! Yes, they shrunk. I went through a lot of water in NZ and i guess, i recently found out, that they do indeed shrink since they are suede. My toes are jammed and my foot now swells up when wearing these boots for longer then a few miles. Since it was over my one year warranty i am SOL. I have gotten several friends to buy the same boots cause they work for walking around the city while traveling but also hold up great in the mountains. such a good dual boot. Pretty bummed that I wasnt able to get them replaced. Yes, they were waterproofed. I have never had a hiking boot shrink before so this was pretty lame. I can either buy new full price pair or give my boots away cause i cant even wear them anymore.
      SIZE up for shrinkage. I should have gone with the 7. Other than the fact i cant wear my boots, when i did wear them before they shrunk they were the best boots. I loved everything about them.

      **Another review update. I ordered the Jag boot in size 7 and they are huge. Danner cant seem to get their sizing right. they feel more like a 7.5, waaaay too much room. I would order another 6.5 but i really just decided this brand isnt for me i guess.

      Danner delight---but they SHRINK.

      Rugged and stylish

      I gave these to my girlfriend and she loves them. They offer great support, aren't too heavy, and are very well made. The waterproof liner keeps water and snow out and makes these great for around town boots in the winter. These are not heavily insulated but with warm socks they suffice in colder temps.

      She Loves Them

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I bought these for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves them. Like lots of people, she usually hiked in a trail running/athletic shoe, that was certainly light but didn't have alot of support or protection.

      She insists that these are "game changers" for her.
