Ask Me: Which Boots Do You Recommend for Backpacking, Heavier or Lighter?

Michael,

This is a great, straightforward review [of the La Sportiva Thunder III GTX boots]. I was just looking at these boots and I am strongly considering them based on your review. I am torn between these Thunder III GTX and the La Sportiva Hyper Mid GTX. Perhaps you can provide some insight or guidance based on your experience with both boots. My primary activity will be backpacking, carrying 30 to 40 lbs., 10 to 15 miles per day in south-central Alaska. The terrain is just about as mixed as you can get: sharp rocks, sand, mud, roots, tundra, steep alpine, scree, creeks, etc.

    When it comes to any backpacking experience, it’s so important to have the proper shoes/boots in place. Personally, it helps to make the experience more enjoyable and safe. Thanks for sharing your advice!
