Gear Review: Garmont Dragontail Hike II GTX Boot

Finding the right balance between a light-weight, minimalist hiking shoe and a beastly, full-protection hiking boot can be a challenge. Garmont’s new Dragontail Hike II GTX is a great boot option that bridges that divide well with a trusted name in outdoor footwear. Inspired by the brand’s iconic Dragontail approach shoe, this light, mid-cut boot features enough ankle and foot support without having to lug unwanted weight high into the mountains. It also has a roomy toe box, Gore-Tex liner, and grippy Vibram Winkler sole for rugged trails and rock. If you’re looking for a new pair of hiking shoes that can do it all, this may be the boot for you. MSRP: $220. // (Wil Wheaton)
