Boreal Moab

A lightweight 3-season boot weighing 1652g (pair, size 11). Dryline waterproof lining; leather upper with very little stitching; rubber toe bumper adds durability. Soft leather ankle cuff; very aggressive Vibram sole unit; excellent stiff sole and toe box. Not a great deal wrong here, but there are lots of equally good boots at this price.

Verdict: If you want a very good waterproof leather boot for a wide variety of terrain this is one to try, especially if you prefer a supportive boot.
