Zamberlan Rise GT 2010

The Zamberlan Rise GT weighs 1388g (pair, size 42); Gore-Tex waterproof lining; good stiff toe box and heel support; Vibram outsole with good lugs for grip; good upper stiffness generally for hill and mountain walking. But uppers with less stitching may be more durable; sole flex is a little softer than some similar models.

The Zamberlan Rise GT is a good general hill-walking boot, but there are a lot of similar models out there.
