Karrimor KSB 300 eVent 2011

The Karrimor KSB 300 eVent weighs 1652g (pair, size 11); suede and synthetic fabric upper; eVent waterproof lining; Vibram sole unit with deep lugs for grip and good stiffness; good stiff toe box with rubber rand; great price for performance. But the upper and sole flex are a little softer than some similar-priced boots; a full leather upper may be more durable; fit is not as precise as some higher-priced options.

The Karrimor KSB 300 eVent is a good all-round hill-walking boot that is hard to beat for the price.
