Lowa hunter boots
« on: February 11, 2018, 08:48:36 PM »
Looking for some first hand info on these boots have kenetreks now my left toe is peeling and left heel is leaking Iím going to have them fixed but I donít think Iím going buy another pair of them. I guess my main questions about the lowaís is how water proof are they, their warranty, and where to try them on at ?

Love mine so far. Lightweight, waterproof so far (2nd season 40ish miles) and good off trail performance.

I run a pair of the lowa Tibetís. I think this about their fourth or fifth season. Very comfortable straight out of the box. Have used them backpacking and hunting. Never leaked and are very well built.

I have lowa renegades I have used the past two years. They are awesome, lightweight and keep your feet dry. I was hunting late season deer in 5 inches of snow with gators and I didnít have a problem with keeping my feet warm or dry!

+1 on the Renegades I have 2 pairs and wear them every day, hunting or not. For my foot it's the best fitting shoe I have ever had.

When it rains your feet get wet. Water comes in from  the top. I used these in Montana last year too at 0 degrees and my feet were warm and dry. With gators/ snow pants.

I have the Tibet GTX, absolutely love them, will buy them again when needed for sure.

couple these with some decent waterproof gaiters and some good merino socks (darn toughs for me), and you are set for about anything.

I think the hunters are closer to the tibets then the renegades, to me the renegades were not as stiff, and didn't provide as much support. They were VERY close to my low top danner pronghorns as far as support. build quality is great on them, and I wouldn't hesitate the run them.

The Renegades and tibets come in a GTX (gortex lined) model, and a LL, full leather lined model.

I love the boots but after 2 years I got leakage in the pairs I have owned.  But REI swapped them no question the first time that happened. The second time I just kept the old pair and bought a new pair to have 2 pairs.  Early season has so many dry days I just run the old ones those days.

I did put a lot of miles on the pairs I owned and comfort wise they still feel good.  Before I switched to Lowas my feet hurt pretty bad at the end of the day.

I have never owned a pair yet.  However, our best friends who do 5X the hiking I do swear by them.  The only boots they own.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Mine are full leather. I couldn't tell you how many miles I have in them. If you do a lot of side hilling you may want more support but I like a lighter boot.

Lathrop and sons might be what you are thinking of.

I got a pair of whites built, wouldn't trade them for anything.

I have the Ranger GTXs. I never knew before what a difference fine footwear makes. about 5 seasons and never looking back at other boots.
