    Merrell Reflex Mid – Hiking Boot Review

    Hiking Boot Rating: 9.0 – Excellent!

    Great for day hiking and most outdoor activities. It’s comfortable, waterproof, has a very modern style and uses high quality materials – especially the Merrell sole. Available only at Cabela’s.

    THE GOOD
    The Merrell Reflex sole is a little better than the Vibram sole on the Pulse II. This boot is built to be comfortable out of the box and is made with quality materials.

    THE BAD
    The lining is a step up from standard mesh but is a bit warm on hot days. The Reflex is a few ounces heavier compared to most light hikers.

    THE FIT & COMFORT
    Has a standard foot shape (slight curve and medium width) the same as Nike ACG and The North Face. The arch is low and the toe is slightly narrow.

    THE PRICE
    List price – $130.00
    Average price – $119.95

    OTHER NOTES
    If you are wondering why they are hard to find it’s cause they are. The Reflex is a special boot made for Cabela’s and it’s very similar to the Merrell Pulse II.

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