The Lowa Ranger is a classic trekking boot that provides excellent support in the 40-60 pound pack range. Lowa has treated this durable Nubuck leather with a water repellent and on the inside has equipped it with Gore-Tex® making this a water proof boot. The Ranger has the patented SPS (Supination/Pronation Support) System for maximum comfort and support. Western Hunter Magazine writes "I have tested over 130 pairs of boots and the boot I consider to be the best all around is the Ranger GTX". This could be due to the extreme attention to detail Lowa has taken in trying to make the best boot possible. The Lowa Ranger has been hailed as one of the top boots in the industry, and for good reason too.
