Review: Lowa Tibet GTX Hi

When the peaks and alpine lakes call, pick up the Tibet GTX Hi from Lowa and head to the high country. With its 9-inch height, this burly backpacking boot protects your feet from impact and keeps your ankles from rolling over, all while keeping your toes warm on those crisp mornings. A thick rand deflects stones and sharp branches, and the earthy green exterior means you wear them during hunting season, too. Excellent traction gets you up steep mountainsides, while a snug, comfy fit keeps your dogs from barking regardless of how many miles you cover. The boot is also waterproof, so rain and snow won't slow you down. $380;
