Named after a rare goat-antelope found in the remote Eastern Himalayas, Mishmi Takin makes high performance outdoor gear for wet conditions. The Jampui mid hiking boots are a great choice for backpackers and long-distance hikers who want a tough, light boot that will hold up through difficult trails and off-trail hiking.

The boots are super light (15oz per boot), strong and supportive, and ultra breathable thanks to the eVent membrane that helps keep feet cool and dry. And there’s no sacrificing traction with the Vibram Megagrip, even in wet conditions.

MSRP: $174.93 (sale price: $149.93). Mishmitakin.com
