Built on tradition.
By using a traditional method of boot-making, which reduces the number of seams, Hanwag has ensured that the Men's Bergler Backpacking Boot brings an ideal level of both comfort and durability to you on the trail. The aforementioned traditional construction requires very skilled, high-quality, handcrafted workmanship to double-stitch the sole to the nubuck leather upper, which means fewer seams and subsequently less rubbing and pressure points for lasting comfort in the backcountry.
The comfort is then further bolstered by the soft leather padded cuff and tongue to prevent chafing and enhance cushioning, while the flex zone on the heel along with a shock absorber eat up loose, rocky, and treacherous terrain underfoot. And if your adventure begins just after the rain's ended, rely on the ultra-grippy and stable Vibram Tessin rubber outsole to lockdown each step you take with confidence.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I've been looking for some real deal working duty backpacking boots. Not save an ounce weekend warrior boots, but starts looking good at mile 300 boots. I found them. These babies are old school heavies. The softer uppers give my ankles a nice hug while the solid leather foot takes a beating and keeps on hiking. I'm in love.

These boots are hands down one of the best I have ever owned. They are fully leather lined and from the first time you put them on it's like a glove. **Please note the sizing listed is UK**. I am a US 12 and bought a UK size 11 and the fit is perfect.
The toe box is on the roomier side so if you have an average or slightly wider foot it should serve you well. Paired with a wool sock these are solid winter boots. I have trudged through knee deep snow and my feet stayed 100% dry.
The boot is burly and looks very heavy but is surprisingly light once you have it on. Paired with a flannel and Khaki's you will be ready for every mountain town around the globe. Hanwag is Fjallraven's boot brand so look there first for your next flannel and it'll be a match made in heaven!!
