Overall, I'm super stoked for the boots. I can't wait to get them up on the mountains. I think they're pretty dope.
[T]he Trovat (we'll dispense with the rest of the clunky name here) is a year-round all-leather boot which can take you from the valley to the scree slopes and onto the ice fields and back again.
I've been wearing them for the past few months through the slow disappearance (then reappearance) of winter, and they've excelled in every area you'd expect them to.
From the beginning, there were no hot spots, which is quite rare with thick boots like these.
[T]hey are an excellent choice.
If you walk year round and generally prefer rugged boots to nimble approach shoes then this is an excellent footwear choice for most of your adventures on mountain terrain.
The Mammut Trovat Guide High GTX is aimed at pack-carrying folks who wish to have a reliable traversal performance in their multi-day expeditions. It is engineered with Base Fit 2.0—a technology that sees the boot’s lacing system and sole unit working together to give wearers enhanced in-shoe safety.
Its sole unit, which is comprised mainly of the footgear’s shock-absorbent midsole and Vibram outsole, is built with a Mammut-patented technology called Rolling Concept. Its presence promotes the natural rolling motion of the foot. It works with the design technology called Motion Control in preventing the ankle from sustaining torsional injuries.
This shoe is crafted with Feet Map, a lining and padding system that prevents pressure points and lessens foot perspiration. What protects its interior from moisture, on the other hand, is a waterproof membrane from Gore-Tex.
Mammut’s Trovat Guide High GTX is a generally true-to-size, high-cut backpacking boot for men. It is offered in D – standard width in half and full sizes. Its 3-Zone Lacing system gives owners the ability to achieve a customized lockdown. Since its interior is engineered with Memo Foam, trekkers can look forward to an even more personalized fit in it with time.
With its Vibram MT Traction II outsole, the Trovat Guide High GTX is capable of giving its users a secure enough footing on tricky terrain. Both its heel and forefoot sections are laden with multi-faceted lugs for increased grip over loose-soiled surfaces. It comes built with a heel brake to grant backpackers extra control and safety during descents. When this component gets worn beyond effective use, it can be replaced with a new one.
This backpacking footwear provides wearers with ample cushioning and terrain balance thanks to its stout midsole made of polyurethane. It has a thickly constructed heel zone for shock mitigation. Set right on top of it is a stock footbed for additional comfort underfoot.
The Mammut Trovat Guide High GTX cradles the foot in its part full-grain leather, part textile high-top upper. The lining of its collar is made of Nappa leather. Its bootie is imbued with Gore-Tex’s Performance Comfort technology, giving the gear the capability to stay watertight yet breathable in the inclement weather. It has an elastic tongue courtesy of the same waterproofing company. For increased protection against cuts and scrapes, Mammut designers furnished its bottom perimeter with a heavy-duty rubber rand.
Giving this grounded boot a metallic accent are its combination eyelets. They are made up of closed loops and open hooks. Criss-crossing through them is a round synthetic lace.
