    Danner Agitator 45 GTX Mid – Backpacking Boot Review

    Backpacking Boot Rating: 8.0 – Great!

    THE GOOD
    For a lower-priced backpacking boot, the Agitator has a lot of nice features. The inside collar is leather and the sole is mated to the leather upper with reinforced stitching in areas that get the most wear.

    THE BAD
    it will be a little too soft for extreme backpacking trips. If you are taking a heavy backpack, the Agitator 45 may not have enough ankle support.

    THE FIT & COMFORT
    Danner puts durability over comfort. The upper will need a little break in time and the sole is ruggedly solid. The Agitator has a standard foot shape (slight curve and medium width) but is a little bit more straight like a Salomon.

    THE PRICE
    List price – $125.00
    Average price – $99.95

    OTHER NOTES
    Durable materials are generally stiff when you first get them.

    Available Sizes: Men’s 7-12, 13, 14
