Who should buy the Garmont Tower LX GTX
The Garmont Tower LX GTX is beyond capable of impressing mountaineers with every merit it has in its portfolio. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a mountaineering boot that provides enhanced shock absorption and stability on mountainous terrain.
- Prefer a mountaineering boot that is designed via Ferrata traversals and technical mountaineering.
- Prefer a mountaineering boot that provides a personalized lockdown.
Excellent traction and grip
With the boot’s Vibram Mulaz outsole, mountaineers can gain ground and reach heights with enough traction. Heavy-duty angular protrusions (also known as lugs) populate its surface for multi-directional grip. Its forefoot and heel zones have a more compact construction to give wearers a firmer hold on more rigid surfaces.
Adequate terrain stability and cushioning
The Tower LX GTX's dual-density PU midsole brings to the table adequate terrain stability and cushioning. It comes with part fiberglass, part nylon insulating insole which is made extra cushy with a 2.5-mm microporous top layer. Its heel is engineered with a crampon insert made of polyurethane.
Giving users additional underfoot cushioning is the Alveolen footbed. It is made with a combination of felt and EVA resin, making it capable of delivering a lightweight kind of comfort.
Weatherproof and breathable
This Garmont gear sports a tough upper made of Cordura fabric and microfiber. Its collar, tongue, and flex insert are made of a single-piece Schoeller fabric. Its liner is imbued with Gore-Tex’s Performance Comfort tech, granting the boot weatherproofing and breathability.
Provides abrasion protection, stability, and grip
The Helix rubber rand that covers its lower region provides abrasion protection, as well as additional torsional stability and grip for technical climbs.
Garmont’s a.d.d technology is comprised of the boot’s asymmetrical cuff, anatomical tongue, differential ankle pads, and precision lacing. These parts work hand in hand to give wearers improved comfort, support, and stability.
