Lightweight, durable, and fully waterproof.
The Men's Stumptown Mountain Pass GTX Boot from Danner blends classic lines with lightweight, modern technology. The full-grain leather uppers are durable and waterproof, and they encase a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex membrane that serves to keep your feet dry, while still allowing moisture to escape when you're hiking. A removable polyurethane footbed offers some cushion on the trail, while the Bi-fit board construction midsole ensures stability, especially when carrying a heavy pack. To keep you from sliding around, Danner added Vibram Kletterlift Thin rubber soles that provide excellent traction, without adding too much weight.

- Q & A
Warning: The Mountain Pass in Rio Latigo is not Gore-Tex lined. Instead, it is lined with Dri-Lex, providing "water resistance" but not 100% waterproof. I'm not sure why Danner makes every other color of the Mountain Pass with Gore-Tex except this one. I was confused about this because different websites report different things in their product descriptions, so I called Danner directly and they confirmed that Rio Latigo is not Gore-Tex lined.
Otherwise, it is a wonderful boot. It's just not waterproof...
Good quality boot but not all that comfortable. The insole feels lumpy and doesn't have much arch support. I'll be sending them back. The tread depth of the outsole is pretty shallow. If they're worn daily you'll end up sending them in for retread. I gave it 3 stars because of the comfort level
