  • The Hanwag Ferrata II GTX has enough technical features that gives wearers the performance they need for taking on challenging mountain adventures. It has a waterproof laminate that provides weather protection.
  • This boot is the direct successor to the first-generation Ferrata GTX. It comes with a lightweight sole unit called TubeTec Rock, making it less weighty than its predecessor by about 10%. This boot is also now on the lighter side of the scale as Hanwag designers used Cordura fabric and less leather in its upper.
