Absaroka Beartoothwrote a review of Zamberlan Latemar NW Backpacking Boot - Men's on March 29, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I am pleased to see Backcountry selling Zamberlan boots, but the big story here is the Latemar NW. They are constructed with high quality leather and do not have Gore-Tex. We (as consumers) have been fed the Gore-Tex in hiking boots requirement for so long that not many people know how nice it is to have leather backpacking boot without Gore-Tex. After a few hikes you will understand how nice this is. And on an extremely hot day with lots of hiking you might even see your perspiration seep through the leather. Gore-Tex certainly has it's merits (especially in footwear used during the winter or in very wet environments), but for hiking in above freezing weather a boot without Gore-Tex performs better.
A bit more information specific to this boot... The heel hight is fairly flat compared to many backpacking boots. So it lacks the high-heel feeling when on flat ground. The sole does not have an aggressive look to it. Yet it is long lasting and provides excellent off trail traction. The inside is calf leather and very comfortable. It is important to note that a one piece full-grain leather boot is both waterproof and tough with some care. You do need to maintain the outside leather with a cream and wipe the inside calf leather clean regularly if you have been sweating a lot. As an added benefit these boots can be completely rebuilt if needed. Just ask Zamberlan to recommend a cobbler to replace the sole or make modifications.
I really hope other manufactures and Zamberlan make more boots like these.
