LOWA Tibet GTX® Hi Scores in Outdoor Life


Stamford, Connecticut – August 20, 2013 - LOWA’s new Tibet GTX® Hi does it again! It has just been chosen to receive a 2013 Editor’s Choice Award from Outdoor Life.This happens just a month after the boot was a winner of the prestigious Best of the Best awarded by Field &Stream. Outdoor Life editors describe the award as one of the hardest-earned badges in the industry.

In each issue, the magazine provides their readers with an accurate and unbiased assessment of the best outdoor-related gear on the market. Results are based on a series of scores each item receives for various categories during a specially designed and thorough testing process. The Tibet GTX Hi ended up with an A-plus.

Outdoor Life’s ratings give you the unbiased and accurate truth on outdoor gear,” said Andrew McKean, Editor of Outdoor Life. “Products are thoroughly tested, and winning items earn the title based exclusively on the hard data and scores. So when we say a particular item is the best, you can take that to the bank.” The article can be accessed on www.outdoorlife.com/boottest2013.

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. 

LOWA Boots LLC, with headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut, is a partnership with LOWA Sportschuhe Gmbh founded in 1923 and based in Jetzendorf, Germany. The U.S. company, launched in 1996, sells, markets, and distributes a complete line of four season outdoor footwear for walking, hiking, backpacking, and mountaineering as well as everyday use.
