What attracted me to the boot is the simple lack of a waterproof membrane. The lack of a membrane is evident in much-reduced clamminess, but having said that, the Bergler is still perhaps a touch on the warm side for summer hiking.
- The Bergler is under Hanwag’s B category. It provides an optimum grip and has a solidly constructed sole. The leather boot is made to tackle long hikes and light treks.
- The designers made this handcrafted backpacking boot with an emphasis on comfort and durability. Its nubuck leather upper is traditionally constructed with a minimal number of seams to minimize pressure points and hot spots.
- The Vibram Tessin sole of the Hanwag Bergler consists of an EVA rubber outsole for grip and a midsole unit for cushioning. Its raised heel impacts the performance of both the midsole and the outsole.
This handcrafted hiker from Hanwag is available for men in whole and half sizes. It comes in standard width. It features the Easy Roller smooth ball bearing lacing system that grants a personalized fit to the wearer. The boot reasonably runs true to size.
The Hanwag Bergler’s ability to grip on most types of terrain comes from its Vibram Tessin outsole. It’s made of a sturdy EVA rubber material. Its surface features cross-shaped lugs in the middle and block-like lugs on the sides for traction and stability, respectively. The raised heel creates a braking power that aids during descents.
The Bergler from Hanwag uses a double-stitch construction to attach the sole to its upper. This design allows the gear to be resoled at an additional price.
This backpacking boot is equipped with a midsole component that’s built to promote comfort. It also has a shock absorber placed at the heel. The sole uses a wedge design to improve stability.
The Hanwag Bergler features an upper made of nubuck leather. This material makes the boot resistant to abrasive elements. The boot’s leather lining creates a comfortable in-shoe environment. Also, the lining is free from chromium to prevent skin allergies.
This backpacking boot features an Easy Roller closure system that helps speed up the lacing process. It consists of a set of D rings, smooth ball bearings and open hooks.
A soft leather tongue prevents friction and promotes comfort. A flex zone is incorporated into the upper to help the user’s ankle to move freely without compromising support.
