How many hunters have found themselves in the mountains, on a trail or crossing a field with the best that money can buy in guns and clothing, only to find that their day is ruined by footwear that does not fit, gets wet, slips on rocky terrain or just plain hurts? LOWA boots can prevent this scenario and the Tibet GTX Hi is a good example. Ideal for carrying a large pack while hunting in any weather condition and over rugged off-trail terrain, it utilizes a one-piece, water-repellent nubuck leather upper with a tall shaft for maximum ankle support and a rubber rand for durability and abrasion resistance. The GORE-TEX® lining provides waterproofness and breathability and the patented and proprietary features go on from there.
