While you're far from an over-packer, those few extra candy bars have the power to send you over the pack-weight-limit edge. However, the Garmont Men's Tower Trek GTX Backpacking Boot chows down on extra pack weight for breakfast (or dessert) with its heavy-load-bearing design and day-long support. Inspired by its big brother, the Tower GTX, the Tower Trek is ideal for backpacking and challenging treks with its lightweight, suede upper and unique Intelligent Flex System that ensures a natural gait and flex throughout your hike. In addition to its smart constitution, the Tower Trek GTX is equipped with a 360 degree rubber rand and flexible tongue and collar that when combined provide ample mobility and protection from varied terrain and debris. A progressive lasting board is both stiff yet flexible while the Alveolen EVA footbed assures a comfortable stride. Not to mention, the Gore-Tex Performance lining encourages an amenable microclimate for your feet and provides waterproof protection should your hike require a stream crossing or puddle jumping. And thanks to the Tower Trek's Vibram New Winkler outsole, you can trek confidently due to its strategically placed lugs and multi-directional V-shaped pattern.
