Product Details for Zodiac Plus GTX Hiking Boot Men’s from SCARPA
It's tough to enjoy the journey when you're focused on the slosh and squish that comes with every step. Designed with a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex membrane, the Scarpa Zodiac Plus GTS Men's Backpacking Boot will keep your feet nice and dry if you take a slider hopping between mossy stones during shallow creek crossings or encounter soggy trail conditions after a rainstorm.
Scarpa designed the Zodiac Plus with a slightly softer flex than its more mountaineering-focused Zodiac Tech boot, but made this boot slightly more robust than its more trail-focused R-Evolution GTX--the result is a boot that's capable of handling long-haul trail excursions with a heavy backpack but is still flexible enough for peak-bagging missions across scree-covered alpine environs. Perwanger leather provides extra water-resistance when hiking through mushy alpine meadows, and the rubber randing along the toe and heel offers additional protection from the roots and rocks you'll undoubtedly encounter above and below treeline.
