    THE GOOD
    Wow. First, it’s an excellent value. The Frontier Peak is unusually tall and supportive for its weight and it has impressive tread and lacing. Tough enough for long backpacking trips.

    THE BAD
    The lining is a step up from standard mesh but is a bit stuffy for warm activities. Not much bad about this boot.

    THE FIT & COMFORT
    The sole is rigid and the upper is a tad stiff out of the box. The Frontier Peak has a standard foot shape (slight curve and medium width) the same as Merrell and Nike ACG.

    THE PRICE
    List price – $120.00
    Average price – $99.95

    OTHER NOTES
    Perfect for the weekend hiker/backpacker. Inexpensive but loaded with the right features. Buy this boot.

    Available Sizes: Men’s 7-12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17
