Comments about Danner Mountain Light II GTX Hiking Boots - Men's:
I use this boot for day hikes, snowshoeing, and street use. They're so rugged and comfortable, that I also plan on using them for hunting this fall.
The construction is bombproof, and the traditional design is quite handsome. While they're heavier than many newer style hiking boots, the weight isn't noticeable on all but the longest hikes.
The only way you're going to get a better boot than this is to go semi-custom with something like a Limmer. These are as good as off the peg gets, and frankly a bargain. Made in Portland, OR to boot.
Water resistance is great, tongue is well designed, but will leak first. Breathability seems about as good as a waterproof leather boot (even Gore-Tex) is going to get. My sole criticism, is that I can't get the upper portion tighter around my ankle, which is either simply a fit and flex issue or perhaps could have been alleviated by the addition of another row of speed-lace hooks.
