Who should buy the Danner Mountain 600 Weatherized
The Danner Mountain 600 Weatherized remains to be a good choice for winter hiking if insulation and comfort are the top requirements for potential buyers. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a hiking boot that answers the demands of buyers who want to hike in cold conditions.
- Prefer a hiking boot that provides water protection and is warm in frigid temperatures.
- Prefer a hiking boot that delivers traction on wet and dry surfaces.
Deliver grip on slick and snowy surfaces
Supplying the Danner Mountain 600 Weatherized with traction is a Vibram Fuga outsole. It’s made of a Megagrip compound formulated for use in cold weather. The outsole’s self-adapting lugs are engineered to deliver grip on slick and snowy surfaces.
Provides protection against stubbing
Its front section extends towards the upper’s front tip to protect it from stubbing.
Comfortable cushioning and stability
This mid-top winter hiking boot uses a Vibram SPE midsole made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). It is designed to give cushioning and stability without easily breaking down. The midsole is paired with a nylon shank which makes the gear more rigid and resistant to contortion.
Excellent arch support
The Mountain 600 Weatherized is equipped with a removable Ortholite footbed. It has three layers (with different densities) to further improve the boot’s cushioning properties. The footbed’s open-cell polyurethane construction enhances air circulation. Also, this component grants adequate support to the foot’s arch.
Waterproof yet breathable
The Danner Mountain 600 Weatherized’s overall look and sturdiness comes mainly from its full-grain leather upper. It is lined with a Danner Dry membrane to keep water out while keeping the boot breathable. The upper is also infused with 200g of PrimaLoft Gold to maintain warmth in cold temperatures.
