REVIEW: Brasher Altai GTX 3 Season Boot
3 Season Boot
£135 (£98.00 online)
Again, here’s the Brasher blurb – “A lightweight yet tough and durable 3 Season trekking boot that will perform on rugged terrain during more challenging treks. Altai GTX has all the components to perform when the going gets tough! Key features include:
“Tough and durable 1.8-2.0mm abrasion resistant suede upper with fabric panels
Tri-Fit Technology for support, stability and comfort
Waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX®
Vibram Winkler sole unit for superb grip with dual density EVA midsole for excellent shock absorption and reduction in leg fatigue
Memory Foam in the collar for additional comfort
Added toe protection with a moulded rubber toe bumper”.
I really, really like these boots. They are strong, sturdy, yet immediately comfortable. They give good foot and ankle protection, were brilliantly waterproof, and contain everything you’d expect from this level of boot – Vibram, Gore-tex etc. I trialled them in all manner of terrains, from forest trails, snowy climbs, rocky descents, torrential mountain treks – and not once did they let me down, not once did I have wet feet, not once did they perform with anything except excellence.
I haven’t got anything bad to say about them. The box was a bit plain? So I won’t say anything bad about them at all. How could they be improved? A cheaper price? But then, you gets what you pays for, right?
I’ve now been using these boots solidly for over a year, and they are fabulous. Strong, hard-wearing, never let me down. 95%. AR.
