THE GOOD
This hiking boot is very breathable and perfect for active, warm hiking or lightweight backpacking. It is very comfortable and has a large scuff guard on the toe.

THE BAD
The Mesa Ventilator is not waterproof like most light hikers, but it's not suppose to be. Just don't cross any rivers or go backpacking when it rains.

THE FIT & COMFORT
The Mesa Ventilator has a stiff toe box which adds protection. It's comfortable and ready to go. It has a standard foot shape (slight curve and medium width) the same as Nike ACG and The North Face.

THE PRICE
List price - $90.00
Average price - $79.95

Available Sizes: Men's 7-12, 13, 14, 15
